I wanted to share some of what Mike shared with me tonight.
"Last night after the celebration at Bout Nat, we met with Pastor Uben for a while. He is such a server. That quality in a Haitian leader is rare. He comes from a nearby village every morning at 7 am to meet the people for morning prayer. Afterwards many go off to work or school. He talks with and disciples the rest all day. He has Bible study on Wednesdays, and all night prayer and worship every Friday night.
This man loves his people, and is dedicated to seeing them grow. Most of them are so poor, they have nothing. But they have a great love for a God they have only recently met. Pastor Uben calls them his children, and I think under the circumstances that's a good thing. Whether children or adults, we all need a dedicated leader who has our very best interest at heart. We know God does, and He is manifesting Himself through Pastor Uben in Bout Nat. Pastor Uben also volunteers with the weekly sewing class that has helped several develop their skills enough to give them a job. His heart is to help them along the right way. Please pray for Pastor Uben and the community of Bout Nat."
