The church in Leveque needs a few more finishing touches before we swing the doors open!

Other Church Advancement updates:

Pastor Training

240 pastors from all across Haiti attended pastoral training yesterday at our north campus with guest Pastor Mel Lawrenz. It was a great day of gathering together, opening scripture, & learning! God is Good!

Thank you!

We want to say a big THANK YOU to the team from Riverside Church for spending this week doing discipleship training with our interns, village champions, and translators!

Transformation Tuesday 8/9

We spent some time planting trees in Meseye. Not only do these trees provide for the family, but it is also opens the door to share the Gospel!

Intern Vs. Village Champion Soccer Game

The Intern vs. Village Champion soccer game is one of the many joyful events of the summer. A little friendly competition is always fun, but what is so great is that this soccer game reflects the friendships formed from working alongside each other this summer to better serve and bring life transformation to every man, woman, and child in Haiti. Our Village Champions and interns are incredible and we appreciate their faithfulness to the Lord!

Mom's Day!

This week we had two days of ministry for Mom's living in Laboderie and Bercy. We worshipped, had a photo booth set up for the ladies and they each got polaroid pictures, did watercolor painting on the cover of a prayer journal, played games and had two teaching sessions. It was two amazing days of fun for these hard working moms!

Inspirational Story

This week, as our interns were in Leveque, they met a group of Haitians worshiping on one of the hills. They discovered the group was from a village two and a half hours away and that two years ago they felt God calling them to travel to Leveque every Wednesday morning to pray over the community! This photo shows the view from where they pray. 615 homes have now been built in Leveque for families displaced by the earthquake. What an amazing example of the Lord's faithfulness!

Village Champion Retreat

This week we had a retreat for our Village Champions. It was such a great time of reflecting on all that the Lord has done this past year and ended with praying for every village together. We are thankful for these men and women and how they serve their people so faithfully.

Pastoral Training

"When the Fruit of the Spirit is made manifest in your life, people will gladly follow you because they can see that you are following Jesus." -Pastor Lindor We had another amazing Pastor Training seminar this week! 116 pastors plus 30 Village champions attended! It is so great to see pastors leading their fellow pastors to pursue Jesus is what will transform this country!

Revival Conference

Awesome photos from the end of conference celebration at the Church of Hope. We had such a great week!

Incredible Day of Ministry

Yesterday was an incredible day of ministry! Through all the different teams and villages we worked in, 32 people came to know Christ! What a sweet reason to rejoice!

South End of Pastor Training Center

We are starting to build out the south end of the Pastor Training Center at our North Campus! So exciting!!

Gospel Transformation

Pastor Mel Lawrenz training and challenging church leaders to grow in Christ-like character. The vision of bringing gospel transformation to every man, woman and child needs leaders who reflect Jesus' character. Thanks to Elmbrook Church, The Brook Network and Pastor Mel for their partnership in the gospel and faithful service to the Haitian Church.

Church Advancement

Want to know what Church Advancement REALLY looks like? Last week our friends from First Baptist Church, Jacksonville went into the village of Simonette and visited families, doing Community Health training and sharing the Gospel. Each green dot represents a story of life transformation! Our Haitian Village Champions and pastors now have data on each of these families to use to continue to meet their physical and spiritual needs. Now THAT'S taking ownership of your community!

Simonette Village Champions

Hey everyone, we would like you to meet Jacques, Jean Louis, Frenel and Jean August. These four men are our amazing Village Champions from Simonette. Every morning they get together to pray. They pray for their village, for their families and for the people of Haiti. These men are seen as leaders in Simonette and are the first people that get called whenever something happens in their village. They work as a family and by doing so, they are able to reach every man, woman and child in their village! We are so proud of them!

Learning English Through the Bible

Our Village Champions are working on learning English, and what better book than the Bible to work from!? We are in need of 50 NIV Bibles. These can either be sent to our FL office, brought with you on your next trip to Haiti, or you can simply provide funds to purchase them online at mohhaiti.org. If you donate funds online, choose "Church Advancement" and add "NIV Bibles" into the "Additional Info" field. Thank you in advance for helping to bring life transformation in such a tangible way!

Indigenous Mobilization

Yesterday was an amazing day! We got to watch our medical translators teach first aid to our village champions. The teaching was great and the students were extremely engaged and asked great questions. We pray this is just the beginning as we hope to roll out our community health curriculum in this same way: Translators teach Village Champions and Village Champions then teach in their villages. It was such a blessing to watch and see our medical team and church advancement team work so well together!

Village Champions Meet Their Team

Check out this photo from over the weekend of our Village Champions meeting with their team and casting their vision for the day! Our VCs and teams are so awesome!!

Village Champions

Pastors Conference Cont'd

Right now, pastors from all over the country are uniting as one church under God at our pastors conference!

Let's Get Together!

We had a meeting between pastors from Bercy/Leveque area and pastors from Summit/The Chapel(NY) that went really well! Pastor Kenol is doing a great job working with local pastors and connecting them to the vision of MOH. I loved seeing pastors from multiple denominations and cultures sit together and pray together. Still a long way to go, but this was an encouraging step to see MOH is really starting to learn what does and does not work as we approach the goals of Church Advancement!
