Pastor Vincent wants to thank all the partners/donors who helped feed over 4,000 children on December 22 & 29 in Cite’ Soleil Haiti. The children received a nutritious hot meal with chicken and vegetables and a new toy. For many of the children this is the only time all year they receive some meat.
We thank God for the generous gifts of over $30,000. committed to the new orphanage home. Anna and I were there in October and were so impressed with the polite manners and proper speaking and vocabulary of these precious children as young as three years old. We invite you if you are given the opportunity to visit Haiti to see yourself what the Lord is doing through Pastor Vincent and his able leaders.We do need prayers for the overall plan of paying the funds, now at $5,000, to pay for the legal registration of the deed of the new land given by the government of Cite Soleil. Next in line would be a perimeter security fence and then the construction of a boys and girls house.
We thank you for your prayers and should the Lord give you any strategic or prophetic word or prayer, please email us at missions firstname.lastname@example.org
Being right in the middle of the mystery and adventure God has laid out before us is the most amazing place a person can be on earth. I pray that you would be in that place, however it looks for you!
I had an interesting experience early this morning. I was walking outside and saw this cat sitting near the back door. Like most animals here he is looking for food but but is always on lookout in case someone comes to close, always running off if I tried to touch him. This morning I stopped for a moment and let him come to me. After he smelled my hand he let me pet him and once he felt that he couldn’t get enough. He started circling me, rubbing against my legs like we where good friends. The transformation was in a moment and I could have easily missed the opportunity. If I have learned anything here it would be that showing even the smallest affection/love to someone who needs it can have a huge impact. This is exactly what Vincent is doing with the nearly 30 orphans who have been living in his home for three months now. There are actually 5 more children coming this week and last night we had 3 extra American visitors. Vincent one few I know who, everyday, takes everything he has and uses it to serve those around him. Just living here for a month I have been deeply impacted and I fallen in love the people.
Friday I leave for the States and in a few hours we are headed to the mountain church, a 6 hours drive. The area is beautiful mountain farmland about a mile high, so cooler! I was there in May and loved it and have some unfinished exploring to do there so this will be a great way to end the trip.
I have been so blessed to be here working with Pastor Vincent. I came down to work on some projects but was nearly broke and he took great care of me. I would like to give you two opportunities to sow into his ministry if you would like to. One, you can send a check to the following address made out to MorningStar Missions with “Vincent Haiti” in the memo. Two, I have been working on both the School and Orphanage sponsorship programs and will be sending out the info when I get back to school. Either way anything you feel led to give would be a huge blessing here.
Well, won’t have internet in the mountains but will be back in the States soon so I can post pictures such.
I love you all and God Bless, Nathan — “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7
