Off to Haiti

For the next ten days, I will be with 8 other men from Grace working in Haiti to train 50 Haitian pastors in a gospel conference and rebuild a church building destroyed in the earthquake.  For those of you not aware of the back story, read these blogposts (here, here, and here).  Pastor Joseph, our Haitian leader, was raised in the church in Desarmes whose building was destroyed, and more tragically, in which his father (the church’s pastor) died.  We will also build the first part of a multi-level orphanage.  In all, there are 130 orphans in this church alone.

I have created a website dedicated to our work in Haiti.  There you can find updates about our work, including photos feed from Flickr RSS, and new developments in our growing partnership in Haiti.  We are excited about God’s providence over the past year and the opportunities that lie before us.  For those interested, here are some blogposts related to this particular trip:

» 13 Ways to Pray for Our Haitian Team
» Chérir Christ Bible Conférence (schedule)
» What We Will Be Doing in Haiti
» Packing Up for Haiti
» Bibles for Haitian Orphans

Please pray for us as we hope bring the hope of the gospel in word and deed to Haitians who have suffered so much.  Our desire is to encourage, renew, equip, and revive the hearts of our Haitian brothers and sisters to advance the kingdom and spread the good news of Jesus Christ.

NB: For those in Partnering to Remember, I have scheduled blogposts for the time I will be away to encourage you in your memory moleskine.  Keep treasuring God’s Word!
