July 26, 2010 Haiti

Update July 26, 2010

God is so exciting!  If we tried to figure out what His next move would be, our heads would spin!  There are so many angles to consider in seeing a new Haiti emerge from the rubble… so many avenues to help Haiti’s desperate people, at the same time to open doors to live the Gospel!  Let me explain… 

A Haitian doctor who returned from the States to Haiti is now working with Samaritan’s Purse, and has a limited amount of temporary housing designated for those who make applications and are pre-approved. 

He contacted his friend, who has been watching what Light Ministries is doing with medical clinics, eye clinics, feeding and caring for the needy.  He has been amazed at the favor Pastor Terry has had with those in authority. 

These two men have been working on a solution to a great problem:  Many of our local policemen lost everything during the earthquake.  They will help, but they want Light Ministries to distribute the houses to these desperate families.  The Police Commissioner heard so many good things about us and said ‘I know if those people at Light Ministries can help us, the job will get done!  We can trust them.  Look at what they have done for our people.’ 

They asked if we could help them.  We said YES!   Why?   Because we know that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to touch the hearts of the Police Department in our area with the love of Jesus.  This isn’t just about delivering homes; it is about delivering the Good News of Jesus to those who otherwise may never hear!   

We will begin this project in the coming weeks, bringing the houses from Leogane to Carrefour, approximately 30 miles, and use volunteers from our church to help do the job:  Bring them a home and bring them the Gospel!   We praise God for the big flatbed and other trucks that are already on the ground, ready to go! 

God’s Word says, “Let your light so shine before men that they will see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven!”  Here is another opportunity…  Pray!
