Jerry DeGraff, the Past District Governor of the Salem Host Lions Club, recently acquired 800 pairs of glasses for Pastor Ovide from the Lions Eye Glass Center in Roanoke. The acquired glasses will be distributed through a mission in Maissade, Haiti, where he is from. In 2000, Pastor Ovide and Pastor Don Woodard of Beacon Baptist Church in Salem founded the Candlestick Orphanage and Light Mission Project in Haiti. The ministry distributes scripture, food and has a Christian School. The Light to Haiti and Candlestick orphanage are both a ministry of Beacon Baptist.
