Dear Family,

God has made so many wonderful promises to us and has confirmed in His Word over and over again His plan for our individual lives and for a new Haiti.  Even though many today are in a difficult season of change, we still expect great things ahead! 

We have been so encouraged by Numbers 23:19, “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should change His mind.  Does He speak and then not act?  Does He promise and not fulfill?”  We continue to stand on His Word, which reveals His character! 

Most of the world is going through financial crisis and great uncertainty.  We must remember we are not of this world!  We are just ‘passing through’ and must keep our eyes on the prize…HIM!  No matter how hard things get, if we focus on Him, we will see the fulfillment of His promises to us. 

The past months have been difficult for us as well.  Many of our supporters have lost jobs and churches have lost much income, so we feel it too!  Even though our income has dwindled, we still have issues to face:  We have desperate people, hungry people, people still living in tents during this hurricane season, and many unfinished projects.  We have a large church, but most of our members are without work, so to maintain what has been already set in motion is really challenging.

It is during these times of financial stress, we cling to God’s Word.  We continue to focus on Him, our Source of supply!  We know that without a vision, the people perish.  Without purpose, there is no destiny.  We always tell our people that, when we have nothing, this is the time to dream, so when blessing comes, we are ready with a plan.  Needless to say, we are constantly dreaming! 

We believe with you today that God is about to give you a breakthrough in your life!  We pronounce blessing over your finances, your health and your family!  We must focus on the day when we stand before our Father and hear Him say, “Well done, My good and faithful servant.”

We must constantly pray, listen, and then act on what He tells us to do, even if we don’t understand it with our minds.  We must learn to trust the Holy Spirit in these days so we do not succumb to the pressures those around us are experiencing. 

Keep the faith.  Seek HIM first.  Let’s be willing and obedient and together, we WILL eat the good of the land! Get ready for the greatest outpouring of blessing, revival and a harvest of souls ever known.  We cannot afford to grow weary in well doing, for in due season, we WILL reap if we don’t faint.

Church of Light in Carrefour is continuing to grow in maturity and getting equipped to advance.  Every week, people are born again, encouraged and delivered by the power of God.  We thank God for a strong praying church that hungers for more of Him! 

Our three Bible School students, Olrich, Rodolpho and Sherly, returned to us from Singapore.  After graduating from their 6-month intensive Bible training, they returned and immediately stepped in to lift our arms.  They are preaching, leading worship and working with outreach programs with a new intensity and a new level of discipline, order and respect.  They are complementing what we have preached for many years!  The greatest thing is that the Haitians are receiving from other Haitians!

Invasion is preparing for an outreach trip to the Dominican Republic this month.  God has sent these young men all over the world through YouTube.  They have now been viewed on every continent, in 90 countries (45% of the world).  We marked a large world map with each country represented.  Whenever they see a new country on the list, they run to the map to see where they went!  They pray over the world that the people who see them will open their hearts to the truth of the Gospel and the power of the Holy Spirit. 

When we started Invasion, most of these guys didn’t even know where Haiti was on the map!  They are now studying geography in a most delightful way!  Invasion will be adding several new songs in the weeks to come.  Watch for them on YouTube.

We are looking forward to growing this fall.  Businesses are moving to Haiti to work with us and many of our people will have jobs with these companies.  This will bring more tithes into the church to support the church, so we can work on rebuilding our city.  We are excited about this because Haitians must SEE changes; they cannot envision what doesn’t exist.

We finally have a new Prime Minister and hopefully, many positive changes can be seen shortly.  Pray for President Martelly.  He is a man who needs to know God and operate in His wisdom to lead a country without order or vision.

Let’s continue to fight the good fight of faith.  We believe with all of our hearts that victory is just around the corner for you, for us.  Don’t let go!

From the frontlines,

Terry and Cary
