Some very good friends of ours have brought a team here from 100 Mile B.C. Canada. We are so happy to see them. They arrived Tuesday evening and had a very uneventful trip to the Children's Village. They spent Wednesday in Marose with the children. Today, Thursday we went up to the village of Bon Berger, Pass Rein and visited the school, voodoo camp, stake, villagers and property for the new church building. We spent time praying for each child and the teachers. It was a very meaningful time for the team and I think for the students also.
Tomorrow the team will go into the market in downtown Gonaives and visit the transitional house for boys that we live in. Then tomorrow evening we will be having a crusade in Badjo. The crusade will be Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. When Mike and Nathan were in Badjo last week a man came up to them and said that he had a piece of property that we could use or buy for a church plant in Badjo. He said we could use it for the crusade also. Nathan and Mike checked it out and it is right off the main road in Badjo and large enough for crusades. We are praying about setting up one of our tents there. Mike will be preaching tomorrow night at the crusade and then our friend Jay will be preaching Saturday evening. Please pray for open eyes, ears and hearts. Pray for healing for the hearts of the people in Badjo as they continue to morn for so many friends and family that died in the accident. Also, thanks to you we have been able to purchase 190 bibles that will be given out to the new believers in the days following the crusade. We would love to be able to purchase even more, as we believe this is just the beginning of a revival in Badjo, Mapou and Lakou. Badjo and Lakou are two of the three voodoo villages that are internationally know for practicing voodoo. So, very much like DeForce, Pass Rein, now changed to Bon Berger, Pass Rein we have been and will continue to be breaking into the enemies territory. Please pray for us, the ministry and the hearts of the people of Badjo, Mapou and Lakou. These villages boarder the villages of Poteou and Debarriers, which we are already ministering in. They cover a 6 - 7 miles radius. We are soooo excited to see how God will move over the next three nights, thank you so much for praying.
