Dear Prayer Team,
It is a joy to greet you in the Lord this morning! May God bless you for your interest in the work of Miami International Seminary in Northern Haiti!
We had the privilege of hosting dear friend and fellow pastor Fred Delauriers this past weekend. He is from Northeast Haiti and doing a wonderful work laboring with his father in pastoral ministry, and educating and feeding over one hundred children daily. I think of Fred as a George Mueller in his generation! He is strong in faith.
Fred has begun training pastors in his area which is about half an hour north of where El-Elyon Seminary has been established in Bohoc. He has worked with our committee and been a great encouragement. On our upcoming trip May 21-26, Pastor John Bopp and I will teach in Bohoc for three days then spend a day teaching in Fred's town of Mombin Crochu. By God's grace, this will develop into our second MINTS study center in North Haiti!
Please join us in praying for God's grace, wisdom, and strength as we prepare for our trip:
- for Pastor John Bopp making his first trip to Haiti to co-teach a course on worship
- for all of our travel arrangements, logistics, and funding to fall into place
- for Pastor Fred as he translates materials into French and Creole
- for Pastor George and our seminary committee to plan well and recruit students
It is a great privilege to give freely to others as so many blessings have been given to us, just as Christ Jesus taught us. Thank-you for caring about this effort to train Christian leaders making theological education affordable and accessible to them!
