We wanted to share some Easter Good News with you. Early Easter morning Pastor Nathan called to let us know that God was moving in our churches in Haiti.
Earlier in the month, Mike worked with the pastors on a sermon, so that every church taught the same basic message Easter morning, with the pastor of each church adding his examples and stories to the teaching. We also arranged for each child in every church to receive a coloring page of Jesus raising from the grave, along with crayons. Something that is assumed in Canada and the US, but is still a novelty in Haiti. The last two Easters this has proven to spark questions and interest from unbelieving parents, when the children bring this home and show parents who send their children to church, but do not attend church themselves. The churches also provided a meal to each person that attended church on Easter. I will post photos below.
Nathan spoke in Pass Rien today and said there were 4 salvation's. He also said that a women who was a witch doctor went to the morning service and gave her life to the Lord and then asked if the congregation would go to her place of voodoo worship and help her clean it out and she would burn it all. The theme in our US church this morning was, "He is still rolling stones". Well this morning in Pass Rein, Haiti, he definitely was "still rolling stones". How liberating to give your life to Jesus on Easter morning. Please pray for her and the other new believers.
I would also like to share our Canadian fundraiser invitation. It will be held one week after our US fundraiser. You will find all of the details on the invitation below. We would love to see you there.
