August Mission Trip to Haiti Update

From the Rapakas:

This year we were blessed to take a team of 4 people from a local church to Haiti from August 15-22. We went during the Holy convocation (Aug.16-19) where 30 pastors and some members of their congregation came together to learn and be equipped. On Thursday August 16, we shared with the pastors, children, men and women the word of God during the day and that night we had a powerful healing service where many testified of receiving instant healing. On Friday, we shared with different groups and also had a service where we taught on the subject of the baptism of the Holy Spirit and prayed for many to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. That night, the power of God moved in a special way in our midst and we had a hard time ending the meeting.

Friday afternoon we spent time encouraging, praying and also blessing each pastor with a package which contained items we collected in the US and a monetary gift. On Saturday, we did the same with the pastor’s wives.

During our time there we ministered to a lot of individuals and prayed for healing. On Tuesday Aug. 21, we went to a village in another part of Haiti called Leogane, and conducted an evangelistic meeting for almost 400 children. We had a time of singing, presenting the gospel and praying for the sick. We also fed them a meal and presented them with some gifts and a lot of candies that we took from the US.

While I (Gloria) was there the Lord renewed my passion to help the poor and preach the gospel. I came back with a great burden and a desire to accomplish more for God. One pressing need right now is to send a boy to school for the next year. His father is a drug addict and his mother is trying to make ends meet. He only needs $250 US dollars for the whole academic year that cover tuition, books and uniform. The first $150 is needed before the end of September because school starts in October. Please help us in any way you can.

Overall, we thank God for protecting us, and using us for his glory. Many people were blessed with healing, also were filled with the Holy Spirit. We also brought a lot of things (clothing, toiletries, school supplies, etc) that we gave away to the needy.

Would you prayerfully consider making a love gift to help cover the cost of schooling for the young school boy and other boys and girls with similar needs? You may give online here.
