my visit continues
On April 21st I was invited to a meeting of Mizpah a ladies group who meets every third Monday at Greenstone United Methodist Church.  After a meeting and a snack I was allowed to share about current events in Haiti and give a ministry update.  Thanks to the ladies of Greenstone for the warm welcome and encouragement!
Yesterday I attended Sunday Service at Mt. Zion Baptist Church to worship and adore our Lord with the wonderful brothers and sisters of that dynamic fellowship.  The message was given by Pastor Kevin Lee who is an assistant Pastor of a Baptist church in Rochester, PA. Afterwards there was a dinner provided by the deaconesses and deacons of the church. What a wonderful time of fellowship and renewing contacts with Christian friends!
Time marches on!  Tomorrow I will celebrate my 55th Birthday! 
President Preval has replaced the former Prime Minister of Haiti with an economist named Ericq Pierre.  Hopefully the severe economic problems that Haiti is suffering from will be addressed.  Acoording to my friends down there there are nolonger food riots going on and a calm has been restored for the present.

my visit to the states
On April 12 I was able to visit with George and Joyce Rodgers in Harmony,PA.  They took me to a Gospel music concert in Meadville, PA on Saturday night. The group which sang was the Booth Brothers.  They were fantastic!  Ronnie Booth from the group donated 5 of their CDs to our Christian Radio Station in Haiti.  If you havent ever heard them I encourage you to do so--you will be gratly blessed.  Pray for the Booth Brothers as they are frequently on the road doing concerts.
On Sunday morning I was able to visit Harmony/Zelienople United Methodist Church.  I shared news about Haiti at both morning services and also spoke during Sunday School.  Thanks to Pastor Rich and the wonderful Christians at HZUMC for their warm welcome!
Apparently the food riots in Haiti have stopped for the moment.  The President is apparently going to dismiss the Prime minister.  Pray that the Haitian leaders will do something to help Haiti get through this difficult moment.  
While in Pittsburgh I will be worshipping at Greenstone UMC.  Hopefully I can arrange to visit other churhes during my stay.

there's no place like home!
Well, after a year and a half being in Haiti I finally touched down on US soil as of April 1.  Anyone wishing to contact me here in the states can call  412-766-9162  or continue to send email msgs to samrice@gospelgrowers.org.  I will be making the rounds visiting different churches and supporters during my stay.
Things in Haiti were grim as I was leaving. Food prices have doubled since last year at this time. Last Friday 4 people were killed in hunger riots in Cayes.  Please pray for God to intervene. 
On the spiritual front great things are happening.  We are in the process of planting 3 new churches in areas to the east of Dariol where there are few Protestant churches.  There is a greater interest in hearing God's word. 
Please let me hear from you  while Im here.    Blessings   SAM
