A group of pastors from Williamson and Luly continue to meet with pastors from the U.S. over Zoom each month. During these calls, pastors from the U.S. offer encouragement from God’s Word. The Haitian pastors share prayer requests and updates from their congregations. This month many of the pastors asked us to pray for perseverance during these difficult times.
They also shared stories of individuals who had come to Christ in the midst of uncertainty and heartbreak. Romans 8:28 says, “and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
God is using all things – even the gang violence and political unrest – to work for good. He is calling people to Himself! Pastor Nerner from Williamson shared one such story.
“We’ve had some people running from gangs in Canaan. They come to live in Williamson. It’s the only way to save their lives. They understand God can save them and they accept the Word of God. One woman explained to us how the gangs broke into her house and looted everything that she possessed. She told us that there was nothing left. Then she asked to receive Jesus into her heart so that God can save her. She realized that even if all things are lost, her soul will be saved.”
Pastor Louis Dor shared that his church recently held a crusade and several people accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior. “Among those who accepted Jesus Christ was one who was suffering from a sickness. The members of the church had prayed over him and he was eventually healed. He then understood the power of God and he decided to accept Jesus.”
It brings such joy to hear how God continues to work in the midst of fear, hunger and a longing for peace in Haiti. Please join us in praying for perseverance for these pastors, faithfulness for the body of Christ and an open heart for those who have yet to accept the gospel in Haiti.
Romans 10:13 “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
