The people of Haiti welcomed the Grace Chapel Team with open hands and open hearts. This team was unique because it was not only the first time women served as team members from GC but also the first time NHMI hosted women seminars. These women of faith ~ Kathy, Lisa, Carol, Ruth, and Nikki ~ brought with them a message of renewed hope and steadfast joy as they taught the Haitian women their true identity in Christ. Affirmation from God’s Word: “I am special.” “I am not alone.” “I am God’s masterpiece.” “I am not condemned.” “I am pure.” “I am forgiven.” More than 260 women attended these meetings. Over half of them came forward to confess decisions of recommitment and salvation. How we praise God for the victories won in Christ!
The construction team completed the Biley School renovation. These men of God ~ Matt H., Tim, Del, Paul, Matt B., and Robert ~ put the new roof on the Biley School. Led by Del Hardin, they did a remarkable job as they built and mounted 34 trusses on the original Biley structure (built in 1991). This was in compliance with government safety standards.
Pastor Myron and Tim also facilitated a day and a half seminar with the NHMI church leadership. What a God given time of encouragement and instruction! Finally, the team was able to share in the joy of village evangelism and food distribution for the villages of Biley and Chaufway. As they shared the tangible love of Jesus, many people received prayer and bags of food.
Anchor Scripture ~ Team Verse: “Those people who live in darkness will see a great light. They live in a place covered with the shadows of death, but a light will shine on them.” Matthew 4:16 … and to God be the glory, great things He hath done!
