Congradulations GMC!

The multitude must be fed

Our spring revival at Acadien created such an interest in the area that hundreds came. There were those who walked great distances to participate in the event. We couldn't turn them away without something to eat so a meal was prepared. A goat was provided, rice and beans were purchased, and the brethren worked together to see that the multitude was fed.

Youth singing during special services

The Acadien church requested a week of special services. The community and those in the surrounding areas were invited to the event. The church was packed out each evening. There were 19 new converts added to the church.

Baby Dedications

What a joy it is to see the parents wanting to have their children dedicated to the church. There were 13 children dedicated on this occasion.

Baptism at the Ocean

Although there was disaster in the capital city the countryside continued their activities as normal. The Acadien church is growing steadily and there are frequently those who wish to be baptized. I was asked to take part in the ceremony where 4 brethren were baptized.


Many of our brethren lost their homes due to the earthquake. Several of boys and I went to help remove piles of debris to be hauled away.

A shiny new roof for the pastor and his wife

Brother and Sister Marcel Jean are so happy to have a new roof on their home. They were praying that the Lord would help them to save enough money to get it done someday. While we were visiting we saw the need and replaced the roof for them. They told me that they don't know how they could ever repay us for helping them.

Tarps on the roof

The pastor had tarps on his roof to help stop it from leaking.

Roof in need of repair

While working on the church at Thiotte we stayed in the pastors home. His roof was old and was damaged during the hurricanes. We lent him a hand and replaced his roof.
