Tomorrow Aug 10th begins a exciting new venture for Haiti H2O!
We are so excited to announce that fifteen members of the church in Bassin Caiman, Haiti will be traveling to the community of Meloniere, Haiti for a work/music mission trip. This will be our first Haitian-to-Haitian mission team.
Pastor Voltair, who we have worked with in St. Martain for many years, was transferred to the MEBSH church in Meloniere in 2013. He arrived in remote village to find that the fire of the local church had dwindled. The attendance at the church was averaging 7 people, and the school was in need of improvements. There was no home for him to live in, so he and his family rented a house in the nearby town of Chantal. Pastor Voltair spent the first year of his ministry visiting everyone in the community of Meloniere and reviving the mission of the Church. He began work on a house so he could move into the community.
Pastor Celone (of Baissin Ciaman) and Pastor Voltair went to seminary together so this is a natural partnership for the two congregations. The people in Baissin Caiman are no strangers to mission teams; they have been hosting teams for about 20 years. When we started working in Baissin Caiman in 1997, we learned that there was small group of people who had been praying for years for a church to be built in their community. Now, there is a church, school, bread oven and sanitation program.
This week the mission team will have the opportunity to minister to their fellow Haitian brothers and sisters and present the Gospel through word and deed.
During the day, they will continue the work on the home for the Voltair family and visit people in the community. The evening service will be a time for worship and preaching. Those of you that have been to Baissin Caiman know how wonderful their music ministry is! They will bring the portable generator, guitars and keyboards so the musicians can join the choir.
Please join us in gratitude and prayer this week as we celebrate God’s faithfulness and the work being done in Meloniere. Many thanks to those who have sent in support for this team, we have raised a little over $2,200. We still have a shortfall of $4,000.
