My office is filled with suit cases, packed full of clothing items, equipment, books, a sewing machine, water filter, and so much more. As I am packing, I’m thinking of all that needs to be done. Last night I received pictures of the Kindergarten Building. We will have the grand opening while there. The floor is in, and we couldn’t be happier with the construction work.
The children will be in the new building possibly by the end of next week. What a difference! Below you can see the condition of the building before The Torch became a part of God’s story in Haiti. And the building now. What a blessing for these children!
We will meet with Food for the Poor. They have graciously donated an 11kw generator which we will pick up and install. This is an answer to prayer. The well will be tested for water. We are believing in God’s provision.
The picture below is the beauty that surrounds The Torch Christian Academy, Medical Clinic, and Church.
We will be having Pastor Training, studying the Church Doctrines as well as Leadership. Our team here at The Torch Demorest prepared booklets and study guides for the week, translated in English, French, and Haitian Creole. It has been a busy two weeks for us! Each Pastor who completes the course will receive a framed Certificate of Achievement signed by our Senior Pastor, Mike Franklin.
In June we are having a Crusade in Haiti at The Torch Compound! Preparations are already underway and plans are being made even as I type this blog to you. Be in prayer for the efforts by the pastoral staff on the ground in Haiti. Voodoo is very prominent in Haiti but our God is stronger, better, and more powerful. We are believing great things. We will be looking at property to build our Fifth Torch church in the heart of the Voodoo area.
In closing, I ask for prayers for travel mercy, provision, compassion, and clarity. Thank you for being a part of God’s story at The Torch Haiti Compound. God is moving mountains and we are simply instruments for His use.
Prayerfully consider sponsoring a child. There are so many needs. We could not do this without your donations and support.
See you in a week!
