Report On Haiti/Upcoming Trips

Dear friends/supporters.

The Rapaka Family along with the Team had a successful and powerful Missions Trip to Haiti from August 16-26. Altogether, more than 20 suitcases, with about 1,000 pounds worth of clothes, shoes, candy, and supplies were able to be given out to Haitian people in the community.

We participated in the annual Convocation where more than 27 Churches gather together for a week of services and celebration. We were able to give money to about 30 Pastors and also their Wives, who receive no salary and serve the Lord and the people of Haiti no matter the sacrifice.

The Pastors and their Wives also received clothes and toiletries. We set up a make-shift clothing shop in the orphanage, where we gave out more than 700 pieces of clothing to over 200 people from the congregations, who were greatly appreciative.

We blessed the poor children with uniforms and textbooks for this academic year. The team was also able to host a two-day camp on purity for the youth and young adults. About 200 youth came and were well fed during the camp.

Thank you for partnering with Love and Hope to expand the Kingdom of God on earth.

In addition, we are going to minister to pastors and their wives during the trip. We are going to bless them with monetary gifts and also other gifts. We are going to provide school uniform and textbooks (in French) to 50 Haitian children in Carrefour.

We need to raise at least $9,000 for this trip including travel expenses.

Haiti Mission Trip 2013 Highlights

Dear friends/partners,

Gloria and I had a successful mission’s trip to Haiti from August 13-21. Our greatest desire was to encourage the believers during the Holy Convocation and preach the gospel to the children of Haiti. The Lord blessed us with a great time of fellowship with the pastors where we encouraged them to continue to preach the gospel in good and bad times and to remain faithful to the call God placed on their lives. We presented each one of the 30 pastors with a monetary gift and a nice shirt. Since these leaders don’t receive a salary from their churches throughout the year, they were very grateful.

The pastor’s wives were surprised and thrilled when they came to their meeting and the table was set with Haitian delicacies and American desserts. We also blessed them with cash, fabrics, and a beautiful nightgown. Jabez shared the word of God as Gloria translated on the last day of the Convocation where 1,000 believers including 30 churches and their pastors, were reminded to watch their walk, actions, tongues, character and hearts.

Our desire to evangelize the children in Haiti became a reality one more time when about 600 children showed up in Leogane for a day of fun, food, fellowship and most of all the preaching of the gospel. Many children raised their hands and prayed for the first time to receive Christ in their hearts.

We also provided school uniform, textbooks and school supplies for approximately 60 poor children in Carrefour.
We really appreciate your love and support to Love and Hope ministries. As you pray, support and send us to Haiti and India as your missionaries, you will also receive your blessings from the Lord here on this earth and your eternal reward hereafter in Heaven.

Let’s continue to preach the Gospel and reach the lost so that we can fulfill the Great Commission.

Blessings
