Sunday in Haiti
Today, our team visited the church on the Mompremier’s campus. It was a joyful experience worshipping with the local Haitians. Joel was invited to give a sermon during service and wore his Sunday best for this special occasion! While he was speaking, the rest of the team went to Sunday school and performed a skit with the kids. We taught them the story of Joseph and the coat of many colors.
Immediately after church, we joined a team and walked several miles to pray for Nelson, a former witch doctor, who has been experiencing persecution from Madame Lixon, a woman whose husband, a witch doctor, recently passed away. On our way, we hiked in the lovely countryside and it was a picturesque scene of saints marching to battle spiritual warfare. As we hiked, the Haitians were singing worship songs to the Lord and our team chimed along. There is boldness and love in the community here.
After we prayed for Nelson, we went to Madame Lixon’s home and we had the blessing of praying together in community for both her and her sick daughter. Madame Lixon has decided to pick up the practice of voodoo in her husband’s place but expressed her desire to know more about Jesus. Praise God that her daughter has already made a decision to believe in Jesus and asked for prayer. Please be praying for God to soften Madame Lixon’s heart and for Salvation.
This afternoon, we joined the youth group. Tom gave a lesson on the commandment of love today. One youth shared how encouraged he was to share the gospel to reflect God’s love. Tonight, we will have a game night with the local university students. - - - Ines
