Marcie Bergstrom is the founder of “A Light of Hope”. She first travelled to Haiti in 2009 on a visionary trip and immediately fell in love with the people and culture. Since then she has worked in Haiti through numerous mission trips and ministry partners and continues to help support those in need. She created “A Light of Hope” to reach women and children in impoverished cities in Haiti. In many of these cities, spiritual resources are scarce. A Light of Hope is working to eliminate this need by publishing women’s bibles studies in creole and supplying women and their families with these bible studies to help them dig deeper into God’s word and grow spiritually. Her vision is to help teach these families to live sustainably through ALOH’s various ministries while creating an atmosphere where there is zero dependency on A Light of Hope.

ALOH Field Director
Gaman and his four brothers and five sisters have been without their parents since he was 20 years old. His life has brought him to the point where working with others at the Kapyat Mountain bible study is among his favorite things to do, next to driving the taptap that is. This and his faithfulness to the Lord are what make him a perfect fit for Field Director.
"I want to serve as Field Director in Haiti with A Light of Hope because it’s very important for me to serve people and I really like to do it. The people are very happy to receive ALOH too. As I continue to serve I hope God will be very happy about that.”
Women’s Ministry Director
Dieula Laguerre knew she was called to be a missionary at a young age. She learned what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ through the youth leader at her church. Her eyes were opened to how most churches in Haiti do not know how to disciple or teach discipleship. She realized there were no resources for Haitians to be taught on discipleship; especially for women. She wanted to start discipleship training with women in her own country. Her dream became a reality when God allowed Dieula’s path to cross with A Light of Hope and become the Women’s Ministry Director.
Dieula lives and supports her siblings in Haiti.
