October 2008 – Initial Contact


Lucson Dervilus began studying at Reedley College, Reedley, CA and began attending Redeemer’s Church. There he heard of When I Grow Up and its work in helping children in poverty. He asked us to consider helping the forgotten region of Haiti he grew up in as an orphan. Initially, we said no. However, we did tell him that when he returns to Haiti, if he can get something started and show us his capacity as a leader, we’d come alongside him. The vision in Lucson’s heart was birthed.
