Meet Amenson

To be an orphan is a challenge in any country. To be an orphan in Haiti is a severe disadvantage. That’s the position in which Amenson Joseph found himself at age 11. Born in Cap-Haitien, he was sent to live with his grandparents in Maissade after both parents died. But his grandparents could not support him. Amenson was sent to live at Kay Boaz, the boy’s home run by Converge Haitian Ministries.

Life began looking up for Amenson. He heard the gospel for the first time and professed faith in Jesus as his Lord and Savior. He began going to Melchizedek Baptist School and was soon sponsored to cover his school fees. A bright and diligent student, Amenson made excellent grades. He made friends with Converge team members doing ministry in Maissade. Before long he knew English, developed computer proficiency and played guitar. He took advantage of every opportunity that came his way.

Today Amenson, the oldest resident at Kay Boaz, is a big brother, leader and role model for the 12 other residents. He is a youth leader in his church and loves to lead worship with his guitar. A diligent student, he dreams of going on to university in Haiti. He is a young Christian man who has worked hard to make the most of his opportunity to be educated. Meet Amenson and hear of his faith and dreams for the future.
