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.

Upcoming Haiti Missions Trip in August 2014

Dear friends and partners,

Greetings from Love and Hope Ministries!

We are praying, planning and preparing for our next mission trip to Haiti in August. We will be doing a major outreach to the Haitian young men in the capital city. Our goal is to reach at least 1,000 young men in Carrefour and its neighborhood with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We are raising funds to feed these young men and also to facilitate our regular projects, i.e., to help the Haitian pastors and their wives with monetary gifts and also to provide textbooks, notebooks, and school uniform for the poor children in the community.

The entire trip will cost at least $10,000 dollars including our tickets. Please, prayerfully consider sending a monetary gift to Love and Hope Ministries. All donations are tax-deductible. Thank you for your partnership with us in furthering the Kingdom of God.

Pray, pray and pray so that Jesus’ name will be lifted up and He will draw these men unto Him.

Upcoming India Trip

Greetings to you from Love and Hope Ministries!

We had a successful mission trip to Haiti this year. Thanks a million for encouraging,
praying and supporting the work of God. As the Lord admonishes us, let us not be weary in
well doing and let us continue to bring the good news to the ends of the earth. One more
time, we want you to help us bring love and hope to the people of India.

Our trip is from December 4 to 19, 2013. We want to bless the children, pastors, widows,
and HIV/AIDS victims with clothing. This year our goal is to distribute at least 300
outfits. In addition, we want to bless pastors and teachers of Love and Hope School with
monetary gifts for Christmas. We will have a Christmas banquet for the orphans in the
children’s home and the school teachers. Also the gospel will be preached in many
villages, and a pastors’ seminar will be conducted. If funds become available, we plan
to bless some pastors with new bicycles so they can reach more people with the gospel.

We have to raise at least $10,000 dollars including Jabez’s ticket. Please prayerfully
consider donating for this trip. Your giving will be a great blessing to many children,
pastors, widows, the elderly and HIV/AIDS victims. Please pray for safe travel, God’s
provision, and the success of the trip.

If you want to be a part of this trip, it’s not too late. Please contact us ASAP. We
appreciate your investment for the advancement of God’s Kingdom and furtherance of the
Gospel.

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

Missions Trip Haiti girl fenceDear friends/partners,

We are leaving for Haiti on a missions trip from August 13-21, 2013. We are going to bless poor children with books and uniforms, pastors and their wives with monetary gifts along with clothing.

In addition, we are going to have an outreach for children in a new location this year. Our goal is to reach more than 600 kids this year. We are going to feed the children who will attend the camp. Our desire is to reach the young children and plant a seed of the Gospel in their hearts at a very young age. We still need to raise approximately $7,000-8,000 for every thing we want to accomplish this year. Please help us expand the kingdom of God in Haiti.
