Today, Mike spent most of the day in planning and meetings. One of the more major events coming up will be a crusade in Denonville. This is the village we have a school in on the outskirts of Gonaives, so it is rural but not mountainous. The crusade will start this Sunday evening the 23rd and go for 8 evenings, concluding on Sunday evening the 30th. Please be praying for eyes to see truth, ears to hear and hearts to turn to Jesus. Please also be praying for healings and miracles. Mike will be preaching on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. Some of our other pastors will be preaching on the other nights and Nathan will be leading worship.
Another event we would love for you to partner in prayer with us for is our Pastor's Conference, which will be this Saturday. Mike will be teaching at the Pastors conference. Please pray for Mike to be sharing what the Holy Spirit puts on his heart and for the pastors to hear and understand what Jesus has for them specifically.
We want to thank you for praying for Mike's back. He is still having back pain though and would appreciate your prayers for more healing in his body, so that he can do what he is called to while he is in Haiti.
When Mike talked with me this evening he shared some vision God has been showing him. I wanted to pass it on to you, because I believe it casts vision on where we are going with God.
"On the way over here (to Haiti) and the first days of my trip, God has been showing me how all the different parts of this ministry fit together to reach all the people.
That poverty must be addressed in a holistic manner.
1. Good relationship with God and others.
2. Good, Godly education
3. Good economy for individuals, families, and communities
4. Good access to health care.
Each and every part of this ministry can work together to bring this kind of transformation to communities, to be repeated over and over again.
We are leaving the stages of ministry and becoming a transformational movement."
God has had bigger dreams than us since the very conception of New Generation Ministries. I know it is because of His delight in the people of Haiti. Jeremiah 29:11 says, "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." I believe this is just the beginning. Thank you so very much for coming along side of us and the people of Haiti.
