The Path That We Have Trod

Posted by on Dec 2, 2017 in News, News and Stories

This book, “The Path That We Have Trod”, was written by my mother in law, Mrs. Harold Brown, but known to everyone here at Fairhaven as “Sweetie”. I had wanted her to write this introduction, but her health is not good at this time. This book is simply the story of the path of life that she and her husband, Brother Harold Brown, shared from the time they were very young until God led them to start the ministry to children. It describes their walk of faith for so many years and some of the trials they faced. As with everything that is accomplished through Fairhaven, whether here or halfway...

THE MIRACLE OF THE VITAMINS

Posted by on Apr 15, 2014 in News, News and Stories

THE MIRACLE OF THE VITAMINS In the early fall of 1998, we had heard of an orphanage in the southern part of Romania, where children were starving to death. I asked one of our coworkers to check into this and see if it was really true. Within 24 hrs, they had confirmed that, indeed, 5 children had already died of malnutrition, and, probably, 3 others would within the next 3-4 days. I asked our coworkers to take all of the money we had there and to go and purchase what food they could to help. In the meantime, we worked on getting other organizations involved. No other children died of...

KIDS PRAY FOR THE FUNDING OF A CONTAINER

KIDS PRAY FOR THE FUNDING OF A CONTAINER One of the things we have been privileged to do, because of the love and concern of so many others, is to ship Christmas Joy Boxes to children and Christmas Joy Bags to the elderly in Romania for Christmas each year. We try to load this container on the first Saturday in November in order to assure that it will be in Romania in plenty of time for our coworkers to deliver all of these before Christmas. I tell people that one of the benefits of the Lord allowing us to help others is that it gives the children here at Fairhaven a chance to be on on the...

KIDS PRAY FOR A NEW SWIMMING POOL

KIDS PRAY FOR A NEW SWIMMING POOL We had a been given a swimming pool that was a few years old when we rcvd it, but the kids really enjoyed it. Then, in the summer of 2010, about August, it started to having some weak areas. I decided that I had better drain it for did not want it collapsing while the kids were in it. After I drained it, I saw that it was beyond repair so we took it down. The day I told the kids, you would have thought we were having a funeral! One of them said “Papa Johnny, are you going to buy a new pool?”. I told them that we did not have the money to buy one and that...

EEG Machine

EEG Machine When in Romania, I would often visit hopitals, clinics, and other medical facilities to find out their needs. On one trip, I visited a children’s neurological clinic, met the doctor, and found out they had need for carpet and paint. We shipped these items to them in the next container. On my next trip, I went to visit them again and the doctor told me that she did not want to impose on me but wanted to show me their 15 yr old EEG machine. I can just say that it was in terrible shape, but that they were still trying to use it. On returning home, I put the word out for an EEG...

Claudiu Claudiu,Is one of the boys that spends a lot of time on the street. Normally he does not live on the street but ends up there from time to time. He doesn’t use drugs or smoke but he spends a lot of time begging in front of Mc Donald’s. We have been talking to him for a year or so. He is one of the boys that has a weak leg as a result of an injection. His leg is very weak and skinny. At one time he had crutches but they were broken along the way so he walked with one hand in his pocket applying pressure on his thigh to keep his leg stiff. Johnny when I pulled out the brace...
