Mission E4: Mami Lynn’s Home for Boys

For more than a decade, Mission E4, a faith-based non-profit organization in Massachusetts, has been providing development support and disaster relief to impoverished countries throughout the world. After spending four years in Haiti, founders Scott and Tanya Long began the organization in hopes of sharing the Gospel of Jesus while helping those in need.

As a part of their missionary work in Haiti, the Longs established a boy’s orphanage in Fauche, Haiti, where young boys who are in need of a safe place to call home are housed. Recently, in honor of fellow missionary Lynn Duquette, the organization renamed the orphanage, Mami Lynn’s Home for Boys. Lynn played an instrumental part in getting the home up and running and ready to bring in the young orphaned boys in the area. “We are so excited to honor her name in this way,” the company explains.

Today, Mission E4 continues the work that Lynn started after her life-changing mission trip in 2010. While the orphanage has housed many boys over the past several years, there continues to be work that needs to be completed. The Longs are hoping to get the necessary donations to upgrade and maintain the existing buildings. This will allow them to continue to provide a haven for those children who have been left behind.

Mission E4 – Child Sponsorship

Mission E4 has been involved in missionary work around the world for more than a dozen years. At present, the faith-based nonprofit, with headquarters in Massachusetts, is working in six countries around the world.

Founders Scott and Tanya Long and their children lived full time in Haiti for four years, before coming back to the States and forming Mission E4. “In our capacity as full-time missionaries in Haiti,” they explain, “we were responsible for the oversight of nineteen elementary schools, a high school, eighteen churches, and a medical clinic.”

Haiti was then, and remains today, among the poorest nations in the world, and help like that provided by Mission E4 is desperately needed. “We had the privilege of leading about seventy short-term mission teams during our stay in Haiti and another thirty teams from 2005 to 2011. In total, we have led over 3000 individuals on overseas trips.” The country has been devastated by a series of natural disasters since 2008, including two major hurricanes, and a 7.0 magnitude earthquake that killed more than 200,000 people in 2010

Mission E4 still send teams of missionaries back to Haiti four times each year. “We have five elementary schools, a high school, and [a] trade school,” the Longs say. “We have two medical clinics, two orphanages, and get involved in business development initiatives.” More than 1,900 children are enrolled in Mission E4 schools. They get free Christian education, which includes jobs to the teachers, school cooks, yard workers, and school directors. The children also get free school books and uniform material, and free medical care. All of these benefits are made possible through Mission E4’s child sponsorship program.

Mission E4: Necessary Work

Scott and Tanya Long founded Mission E4 in early 2005, after spending the previous four years as fulltime missionaries in Haiti.

Scott Long is the nonprofit Christian group’s President, and with his son Taran and a third man, owns and operates a consulting firm. They travel throughout the United States working with their clients on things like company structure, establishing core values, writing processes, and training their management teams.

The work is necessary, since none of the stateside staff of Mission E4 is paid a salary. Through their for-profit business, they help struggling companies and turn them around to become profitable. Their company is not directly affiliated with Mission E4, but helps to show the skill level and perspective that several of key staff members at Mission E4 have.

Taran Long has spent his life around mission work. He was with his parents during their four years living in Haiti. He came on staff at Mission E4 in 2009, after completing a Bible program and management studies. He has been the network administrator for three companies in the private sector, helping in one case to establish a multi-national database system. He has also worked as a facilities supervisor for a non-profit organization in Texas. Over the last twelve years, he has severed in almost every role at Mission E4, leading teams to Haiti, Albania, and South Asia. He has also been involved in its youth programs, as a Senior Leader, Program Manager, and Director. At present, he is Mission E4’s Stateside Operations Officer.

Mission E4 Continues Work Begun in Cassange, Haiti

The accomplishments of Mission E4 since its beginnings 12 years ago are legion, and Mission E4 has changed the lives of thousands upon thousands.  In its original Haiti Mission, long before Mission E4 came to be called such, there was not one Christian in Cassange, the village where they began.  There were no married husbands and wives, and orphaned girls were routinely used for Voodoo sacrifice.  The Longs began their work with 70 school children from 4 to 6 years old.  Today, over 400 people are affiliated with the village church.  Parishioners have also built 9 other churches in other villages around Cassange.  Within the family structure of the village, over 40 couples have been married in the churches, giving those children a two-parent family which will be responsible for their stable upbringing.

Mission E4

The beginnings of what would become Mission E4 also established an orphanage for the village of Cassange in Haiti, thereby rescuing young girls who would have been used for Voodoo rites.  The Longs are also proud of their ability to intervene to bring help and succor to Haitians stricken by Hurricane Matthew in 2016.  Mission E4 was able, through their effective and organized infrastructure of volunteers and staff, to supply people and support quickly.  After evaluating the status of the school children and their families within a week, they were able to pinpoint where aid was needed without undue delay.  Within 9 months Mission E4 had arranged for the building of 100 new homes for the children and their families who were left homeless.

Idea for Mission E4 Non-Profit Grew from Long’s Ministry in Haiti

Scott and Tanya Long’s Mission E4 non-profit outreach ministry may have been informed by their time in Haiti, whose challenges would have been made to order for these impassioned missionaries.  Haiti suffers from a notable lack of skilled labor, leaving more than two-thirds of the labor force without formal jobs, according to The World Factbook.  Water quality and supply, as well as electric energy, is so unreliable that many middle and upper-class homes have backup generators and rooftop water reservoirs.  Poor rail and roadway infrastructure hampers commerce and tourism movement throughout the country and Haiti ranks last in North American countries for development level of its information and communication technologies.

Mission E4

The work of religious service organizations like Mission E4 is desperately needed in Haiti.  Port Au Prince, Haiti’s largest city, h

as the largest slum of any city in the northern hemisphere, Cite Soleil, has been labelled “the most dangerous place on Earth” by the United Nations.  One of the poorest countries on earth and the poorest in the northern hemisphere, poverty, corruption, poor infrastructure, lack of health care and lack of education are named as the main sources of these conditions.

Scott and Tanya Long, founders of Mission E4 did missionary work in Cassanage, Haiti during the second elected term of Jean-Bertrand Aristide.  Aristide was removed from office by a coup d’état in 2004, the year that the Longs returned to Massachusetts.  Long unstable both politically and economically, Haiti’s need for social stability cries out for the social values of a Christian nation.
