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.
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.
Ruth Donahue is a grandmother, mother and a wife to an amazingly supportive husband. She stepped out in faith in 2010 onto Haitian soil and fell in love with the country and the people of Haiti. Since then, she has been serving in Haiti; learning the culture and celebrating God with what he is doing with women's ministry. God has blessed her with an amazing opportunity to be a part of A Light of Hope.
