We are looking forward to a super-charged week ahead! We accomplished much for the kingdom this trip, and we should praise the Lord together. The Bible says, “Remember the wondrous works of the Lord!” Ps. 105:5 Not only should we remember, but continually remember and give thanks.
This most recent trip, we celebrate because:
- Bibles were purchased and distributed to country pastors. These Bibles are one of the most effective ways to get the Truth to the hearts of believers and to advance the kingdom of God in Haiti. Thank you for your generous gifts toward this vital ministry.
- The JESUS Film was shown in an area with no church in that village. There were believers there, and they rejoiced and were very thankful for us coming to them to share the JESUS Film with them. God was definitely moving in hearts that night. We preached our hearts out, and four people came forward for prayer and ministry.
- I continue to be so thankful for Kethlin, our dear friend and main translator. He has a heart to tell the Haitian people about Jesus, and God has definitely put us together to join in His work for that nation.
- The Project H.O.P.E. team we worked with from MSU did a great job teaching and learning about growing crops and erosion control. Their lives will be forever changed.
- I had the opportunity to preach this past Sunday in Vincent, a church
we’ve grown close to over the years. It was a great time of ministry to see the Holy Spirit working in people’s lives.
Moving forward, our family is praying about this summer, and God’s direction for the time we’ll spend there. I feel there is many opportunities and open doors to encourage the churches and lead people to Jesus as we Go. Please be in prayer with us about this summer.
Also pray about new connections with publishers who already print the Bible in Haitian Creole. (We need to have a more steady supplier because the Le Evangelic Press in Port au Prince, Haiti can’t keep up with our demand for New Testament Bibles.) Think about this: Haiti is the most populous nation per square kilometer and also the poorest in the western hemisphere. These people, in many cases, just don’t have money or access to Bibles, so they are often left without one. Things are very different in Haiti concerning resources and access to anything, including mail and/or transportation. Everything requires prayer because there is a constant battle, and demons seek to stop us at literally every turn in order to keep people from hearing the gospel and receiving the Word. “But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved…” 2 Cor. 2:14 – 15
Thank you so much for your prayers, support, and love as we partner with God to change the lives of literally thousands of people.
Thanks for your partnership in the Gospel!!!
Darrell and family
