Hello,

Here is another update from the Haiti Team.  It sounds like they've had a very productive week there.  We are very much looking forward to them returning home tonight.

The Haiti team has experienced a wonderful week visiting Manno and Prisca with other team members also coming from Indianapolis.  Things have gone very well and God has answered many prayers.  Working alongside the Haitian Christians, we were able to finish the 90 pews for the new church building in 4 days.  We had a soccer and basketball clinic for two days for younger kids.  We were able to worship with the Christians at Pillatre and Lory.  The promotional group shot some very interesting footage to make some updated presentation material about Haitian Christian Ministries.  Despite hot and humid conditions, everyone is well and coping with the heat.  Thank you for all your prayers and support.  Lord willing, we plan to arrive back in Wichita late on Monday night.

Haiti Team Update 2

Hello Reform-Shire Friends,
Here is another update on the Haiti Mission Team.  Sounds like things are coming together very well and plenty of work yet to be done.  Praise God for the opportunity of bringing brothers and sisters together to prepare the way for the Gospel to spread.

Friends and Family,

 

We spent Monday transferring the lumber that had come in from the Dominican Republic from several classrooms to the multi-purpose hall and beginning to sand it to prepare for building the pews today.  The rest of the team came in last night from Indianapolis after a delay.  God has provided all the right people, equipment, supplies and attitude to get the job done this week for His glory and purpose.  We will begin to build the various parts for the pews today in work stations.  We are enjoying the opportunity to work alongside the church people as they contribute to the develop of the new church facility.  We are "gelling" together to form a unified team with others from the States and the local Brethren.   Please continue to keep us in your prayers as there is much work to get done over the next 4 days. We want to leave a positive impression for the people as we work hand in hand to accomplish God's work. We also plan to begin the soccer and basketball clinics in the afternoon from Wednesday to Friday to reach out to the kids of the school and community. The promotional team has been able to get some great footage of the ministry and is beginning to interview people involved and people within the community.  Thank you all for your prayers and support!

Hello friends,

Here is an email sent by the Haiti Team from our church as they begin their Mission trip to Haiti.  I have two sons Wesley, and Jesse) on this trip so I will be posting any status I receive and I hope to provide any pictures as they come in as well.


Please pray for this team and for the mission in Haiti.

Grace and Peace,

Dear Prayer Partners, Friends, and Countryside Family:

 

The Lord has been with us in our travels, and we have all arrived safely in Cap Haitien, Haiti at Manno and Prisca's house. All our luggage and extra supplies for the week came through just fine. We went to see Pillatre yesterday and prepare for the work projects ahead. We are working well with the other group from Indianapolis.

 

Robert enjoyed playing guitar last evening with the worship team of the church as they practiced for Sunday services. We will be worshipping at Pillatre today. Then, we will be starting tomorrow to build pews, video tape promotional materials, and organize a basketball and soccer clinic for the kids in the afternoon. Thank you for your prayers and support. Love to all!

Why Are We Here?

Hello my Refrom-Shire Friends, Brothers and Sisters!

I'm sorry that I have been away for such a long time.  I have started a second job just in case the first one ends which is a possibility.  So, I have been lacking in opportunities to write or comment on any Gospel issues lately.  The Gospel has been the topic of discussion at many settings in recent weeks.  Especially, in light of searching for a new pastor at the local congregation that I attend. 

So, the other day and today I have been hearing Alistair Begg's messages on the Gospel, and of course it is a great message.  Especially, when he drives home the importance of the actual Gospel and not some coercive message or feeling or an invitation to come forward to claim that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God.
Please listen to this message and send me a note to let me know that you "got it" when you heard the Gospel.
