The most successful EVER Haiti Bargain/Bake Sale this weekend! TEM was blessed with over $9300 to help with Haiti missions due to the efforts of Wright Baptist Church Seniors and SO many others who worked tirelessly most of the week to get everything ready. Gene Holmes continues to set a new record each sale – her baked goods brought in almost $1600 this time. Praise God! Thanks so much to everyone who participated in and/or shopped at the sale!  (See additional photos on the TEM Facebook page.)

Today we went to Love A Child to get our monthly ration of food for the children here in Z’Orange. It takes about 2-1/2 hours to get to there, so a food pick-up takes the whole day. The traffic isn’t bad going because it is early, but coming back it is bumper to bumper. The children are always happy to see Gabriel bringing food, and they are eager to help unload. The only time they are happier is when Gabriel is loaded with Americans.

I want to thank Love A Child for their tireless work here in Haiti coordinating such a large distribution each month – also Feed My Starving Children for supplying the food.

Thank you for your continued support and prayers that make this ministry possible.

Today the team left us to go to a hospital in Cap Haitian, about a 6 to 7-hour drive. Thank goodness, the roads there are good roads. They left early this morning in a Haitian van with Pastor Simon to help them reach their destination. They will be there until January 7, then they will fly into a small airport where we will pick them up and take them to the International airport, and from there they will fly home.

It is such a joy for me to see these young people love the Lord so much that they left the comforts of America to come to the unknown. Our world, and sometimes family and friends, tell them not to go, but they go anyway. They were called, and they were obedient. When I think of how our country is going and things look bleak, I think of all the young people that I have had the privilege of showing what God is doing in Haiti, and things look so much better. We have a generation that loves the Lord – they can change our country.

They did arrive safely in Cap Haitian about 2 p.m. Please be praying for them as they enjoy their adventure with the Lord there.

Report by Sebastien Neidig, Logan Elder & Abe Munnerlyn (aka: Dave)

Today is our last day, and it has been awesome! The day started out with breakfast, then discussion of what the day would consist of. Bro. Chuck brought us on a tour of what we hadn’t seen of Jerusalem I – the schools and classrooms, as well as the space where the clinic will be built. His vision for this place and for the people of Z’Orange is incredible, and in due time will save hundreds of people. After the tour, we split into 4 groups of 3 people, each with their own translator, and set about evangelizing and spreading the good news door to door. My group (Sebastien, Catherine and Stella) went to a man named Omane’s home. We began speaking with him – amazingly he had already heard the good news before! Bro. Chuck had visited and helped him build his house, and had told him about Jesus. Sadly though, he was hesitant about accepting Christ as his savior, because he said he owed satan an offering and if he didn’t fulfill it, he was afraid demons would kill his family.

Another group (Mrs. Elder, Becca, and Abe) got to pray with a desperate young woman who was sitting on the voodoo priest’s porch waiting to receive “healing.” We were able to claim the truth that JESUS is the great physician. The voodoo culture here is equal parts interesting, revolting and frightening – people take it so seriously, and it literally controls their lives through fear. The third group (Hailey, Chloe, Megan and Emma) ended up learning a lot about voodoo through the priest, who was more than willing to share what he believes. After he shared what he believes they talked about Christianity and discovered that his children and wife go to church at Jerusalem I! The final group (Logan, Julie and Emily) was incredibly encouraged by the progress that has been made in the time Bro. Chuck has been here, because they did not run into a single person who wasn’t a Christian.

After all this, we went to eat lunch which was, as always, fantastic. Then a merchant Bro. Chuck had invited came to the mission house to offer us some souvenirs at great discounts. After shopping we pumped up one of the soccer balls and played for 2-3 hours with some of the kids at Jerusalem I. We finished out the day with worship with the kids we’ve been investing in and hanging out with. It has been so amazing to be with these kids; they have been as much a blessing to us, if not more, as we have been to them. We’re super excited about the finishing leg of our trip in northern Haiti with Haiti Hospital Appeal. We have a 7-hour trip ahead of us, and we’re ready to see what God has in store for us!
