The old building is down and the new one is en route to Haiti, and in a nation where ‘old things’ are the norm, ‘all things are becoming new’! The rubble is being removed, the buildings are being rebuilt, the trash is being cleaned up, and a new ‘pride’ is rising in the nation, that Haiti can be beautiful once again! It is a joy to work alongside our amazing Foursquare Haiti family as they press forward to a future they are convinced is ordained by God to reveal His goodness to the world.
The scope of Foursquare activities grows almost daily as we begin to reach out beyond Port au Prince into towns like Jeremie – the security wall is started and the new church/orphanage/school is being planned – are you ready to partner with them for a new future? And in Les Cayes (check your map) where the church is exploding with new growth. we recently joined the national church as they did an evangelistic outreach that saw more than 30 people receive Christ in a small, remote area. We now have the start of a new church – we call it ‘the church under the tree’, where 50 or so people are praying & planning how to reach their area with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Jacmel orphanage is really progressing, the church in Las Cahobas is expanding to new property that is more accessible, and evangelistic outreaches are being planned for Anse a Veaux and beyond, and the Spirit of God is moving throughout the land.
Our teams from Oklahoma, Beaverton, New Mexico, Ohio, Washington, Medford, Austin, Crescent City, (did I forget anyone?) built church benches & school desks, hiked to remote churches with supplies, worked on building orphanages, provided medical clinics, worked hard at the national church, did evangelistic outreaches, helped with strategic planning, and shared ‘life moments’ with the churches of Haiti. These teams encouraged and strengthened our Foursquare family for the work that lies ahead.
All they need now is YOU! Your prayers! Your support – we hesitate to start new orphanages until we find partnering US churches – just send your check marked “Haiti Orphanages” to FMI, P.O.Box 26776 Los Angeles, CA 90026. As soon as it is received, we get to provide food, clothing, shelter, education, and above all, quality care for our kids! ($100 a month will provide a Foursquare certified/trained Orphan Caregiver – guaranteed to raise the standard of Orphan Care in Haiti!). Your monthly gift of whatever amount, designated “Haiti” will allow us to expand our efforts and provide quality care for the future of Haiti. And in addition to your Prayers and Support, we want YOU to come and join what God is doing! This is a new hour for Haiti, and a new opportunity for us to help our close neighbor find God’s way into a new future. Check out the website: http://www.foursquarehaiti.org and look at the gmail calendar for dates you can join or bring a team. It’s worth the effort! It will change their lives and you will definitely never be the same!
