Blessings to you from Haiti!
It has already been 2 months since our move! We are learning the culture and adjusting a little better every day. Jabez and the girls are making progress with their Creole tutor. The Haitian people are thrilled when they try to communicate. Please believe with us for a good house for our family.
After Gloria introduced the Character Development method and trained the teachers of our K-12 school, it is exciting to see them implementing it in their classrooms. Every Friday morning, Gloria presents the word of God as she integrates the character trait of the month in her preaching at Ecole Nireja. We are believing God for their salvation and transformation.
Jabez is involved in preaching in our mother church and also at the Bible school. Despite many challenges they face on a daily basis, the girls are not complaining. Glorianna is having sewing lessons locally and Theresa is taking piano lessons from Mrs. Parker from the United States via Whatsapp video call. Currently, Jeremiah is in the United States, attending YWAM in Tyler, TX. Please continue to pray for our children as they are growing through the changes.
Our Ministry is India is very active and Jabez is leaving for India on December 4 for a mission trip. Our desire is to continue to encourage the 40 pastors that are laboring in some of the most difficult places. We plan to bless the widows of the churches with sari (Indian clothing), gifts for our children from the Home and our school. Also, there will be evangelistic crusades and preaching of the gospel at different remote villages.
We need to raise at least $12,000 dollars for traveling costs and the different projects. Please prayerfully consider contributing to this upcoming trip. Without your generous giving and prayer support, we will not be able to accomplish the task which God has entrusted to us. Thank you for your partnership in advancing the Kingdom of God in Haiti and India.
May God bless you and your loved ones! Please send your prayers requests. We take very seriously the prayer requests that come to us and we will lift them up before the throne of Grace. We love and miss you all!
