La Promesse International Foundation
La Promesse International Foundation
I grew up in a Christ-Centered family and came to know Christ at an early age, I was fortunate to have an abundance of Christian influences and to be on the mission field with my mother. I have been an Entrepreneur for over 20 years and God has called me into ministry and to serve as a missionary. My goal is to reach communities around the world to help support feeding and teaching others with the good news, so that they will become messengers of Jesus Christ.
I witnessed the power of Christ through either physical or spiritual healing. I attended several missions of Christ with my late mother. Seeing her work and her passion to serve God, at that time, inspired me to become and remain a Christian. I was fortunate to have the right influence that allows me to grow spiritually and to help others. My inspiration to give back and pursue what my mother had taught me led me to work with Food for the Poor. Through that partnership, we were able to build free housings and provide potable water for the community of Lahatte, Haiti.
As the President of La Promesse International Foundation, our vision is to plant Christ centered communities to help with hunger, education and medical screenings for the less privileged. Our work will also support churches improvement to better teach and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Elmura Danastor, 07/18/1938 – 08/24/2007, was a dedicated servant and missionary of Christ. She was the Co-Founder of 4 churches located in the North side of Haiti that are still operating, saving souls and bringing the communities together through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Her dedication to building God’s Kingdom one family at a time was her primary goal.
She was a wife, mother of seven, role model and a great mentor. Her love for God was unparalleled and unconditional. She missioned where there is no commute in Haiti to preach the Gospel, inspired thousands to accept Christ as their Personal Savior and pray for the sick. She lived an exemplary life encouraging men, women and children to live up to their full potential in Christ. She travelled to hospitals and clinics to preach, pray and help others to salvation.
She raised and taught all her seven children how to serve God and be obedient to His words.
Thousands still recounts her generosity distributing food and clothing to the less fortunate, most importantly for her passion to serve God and preach the Gospel.
Her work was the beginning of La Promesse International Foundation vision and at the core of our mission statement.
Growing up in Haiti, I have witnessed the impact of hunger and lack of basic necessities on families. I have seen the less privileged children suffered due to lack of medical care, education or mal nutrition. I have also seen the importance of churches in a community that keep families together and inspire hope. At an early age, I attended several missions of Christ with my mother to deliver the word of God, donating clothing and food to the less fortunate.
While in the States, I have joined forces with Food For The Poor to built houses, provide potable water and built recreation parks for families in Haiti. The project was a success, where more than 50 families have a new home, clean water and a park for their kids to play.
I hold a degree in Accounting with over 20 years in retail operations and as an entrepreneur.
As Vice President of La Promesse International Foundation I want to continue to support and provide, as a family tradition, for the ones in need in Haiti and other parts of the third world countries. My passion of serving others never waivered and has always given my life a meaningful purpose. It gives me great pleasure to be part of La Promesse International Foundation to continue my passion of serving and helping others as well as helping church thrives.
