Landed back in Florida this month. We are here for a short time and will return to Haiti, Lord willing around the end of September. Of course that greatly depends on raising support and securing a shipboard water maker for our team. We had some drought this time and the filthy springs just aren't what we need to drink from. Please pray for the Lord to send the funds that we need to sustain our Gospel ministry in the people of Haiti and beyond.
We had another great annual convention at Labastille-Mirebalais where Pasteur Pierre St.Niilen Noel is pastor and Director of over 12 churches in Haiti. There were good crowds, special singing, street ministry, convention preaching, Bible study & seminars, ordaining of Elders & Deacons. Had about 700 on Sunday. Here are a few of the preachers of the L'eglise Evangelique Baptiste de la Bible in Haiti.
Several hundred were in the Street Ministry march.
The Lord gave us great liberty and souls were saved. The revival continued at Pastor Noel's even after the conference.
Pastor JC "Chris" Hall joined us part of May and June. His wife KrisAnne and Son Colton came in also. Pastor Chris preached for us and he and mis family helped us in ministry in Haiti. Pastor JC and Colton will return with us this fall as he will be a regular member helping us in Haiti and the islands.
One of the biggest blessings is the success the Lord gave us in the church building at Sou Lettre, Il A Vache. Since December we have been able to raise the walls and put on the rafters and roof. We then finished the platform inside where we preached several times with Pasteur Sainvil. Kathy worked with the Youth Ministry in Sou Lettre. There are quite a number of young people and this church is so important to get them saved before the enemy can get hold of them. We need to continue to raise support so we can finish the interior, doors, windows etc.
We are blessed to be able to preach at many churches on Il A Vache and all over Haiti.
We were blessed to have a chance to minister in the mountains and see some friends. We spent many years in the mountains of Haiti and saw God do great things. It was not easy ministry but it was worth every mile to see God touch lives and save souls.
I used to have a mule named Jack that I traveled around Haiti on, old Jack was a dependable means of transportations up and over the mountains. Kathy and I were blessed to be able to use a motorcycle this summer. Faster than Jack, but there were some scary moments on the edges of a few cliffs. I am glad to know I'm safe in the arms of Jesus!
Our number one goal right now is to get a shipboard water maker for the La Victoria. The one we need is the Katadyn 80E. It is reliable and is a survival tool. It does not make huge amounts like some but it will meet the needs of our team. I have been here during drought, during disasters, during fuel shortages. Water is absolutely a must have or we could find ourselves in a serious situation. It costs around $4,500-$5,000. Here is a pic of the water maker and of the local water sources.
