Dan and Sheila Lynch – God’s Plumbline Ministries

Dan has a background as a Service Engineer with knowledge in Electro/Mechanical Installation, Pneumatics/CNC/Automation along with service and repair. He also is an Expert Plumber with a professional and customer-servicing personality. He has a high work ethic with strong organizational skills.  His mechanical abilities have allowed him to function at high levels in the Third World (Haiti/Guyana/Africa) fixing diesel truck engines, generators and invertors.  He combines all of these skills with his construction and wood working skills keeping the much needed treadle sewing machines, vehicles and building needs all in functioning order allowing everything to happen in a timely manner.

Sheila attended art school and worked as a Traffic Coordinator in a corporate art department. She was responsible for an internal inventory system, sales reports and a jobs tracing system. This included event planning, press releases and managing schedules for several marketing managers.  She also created newsletters, marketing materials, she writes a blog and manages their web site.  Her art background, love for textiles and creativity have allowed her to design and create purses and jewelry out of remnants and re-purposed items, commonly found in the Third World.  By adding a few modern twists she bring two worlds together, creating something beautiful.

In November 2007, they moved their family to live full-time in Haiti.  It soon became clear that their woman’s program and sewing school would grow into something much larger, something they could have only dreamed it would be in only two short years.  Dan and Sheila took their many skills, combining them with the desire to help others and using a very hands on approach to create self-sustaining business for women in developing nations.  They have also done short-term work in Guyana, India and South Africa.

To date, the school they started in Haiti has had three hundred and ninety students graduate with skills in sewing, cooking, jewelry making, literacy and assorted craft classes.  Many of these students are working full-time.
