"In order to be able to be aroused to praise and thank the Lord rightly it is necessary for us to bear well in mind the
good things He has done for us. We have got all the fatherly love of God which creation bears witness to! We have
got all the merits and defence of the Son so that no sin is imputed to us and no law or threat befalls us! We have got
the Holy Spirit with all His grace, chastisement and solace in our hearts! Or maybe it is a small thing to have only
God- Only God- His friendship and His kingdom.? May the Lord preserve us, if we think such things are small, so
that some dreadful evil will not befall us because of such rank ingratitude! Therefore, do not stop praying to God before
you have got a heart that has its highest happiness and peace only in Him and His friendship. Then you will have there
a deep ground for an eternel peace, bliss, and gratitude." CO Rosenius

to all Gospel Growers staff and supporters, may our Lord continue to prosper and bless until his coming for His Church,
an event that is not far off!

Prayer & Praise report
Merry Christ-mas! We want to thank all who helped us with your prayers that God would send some rain as we were suffering
under a dry spell. We've had rain for 2 days!!! What a wonderful gift for this Christmas!
5:52 am est
are quiet in Haiti as many are not able to celebrate much this Christmas except spiritually. Unemployment is 70%
and relatives in the states who sent money down are under economic constraints. Only the Lord can help Haiti through
the difficult times it is experiencing.
You who are in better circumstances be sure to be thankful to God for his
mercies and grace!

Many thanks to the home study group that meets in the home of Jim and Ronni Guerriero of Southlake, Texas! This year
as last year they have sent funds so that the church here in Dariol can celebrate a Christmas fete.
6:25 am est
For a review
of last year's celebration look in archives of this blog. (Jan. 14, 2009)
There will be a week of revival services
from 25 to the 31 of December culminating in the Agape meal on New Year's Eve. As this has been an especially disappointing
year as far as crop production is concerned, the fete will hopefully encourage the people as they reflect on God's providence
and Christian generosity.
Please pray that God will provide for the people until rains start up again.

The Absolute Indispensibility of Jesus Christ
As I indicated in my last posting, we would be very ill-advised to let anyone try to remove Christ out of Christ-mas.
Jesus is the sole solution that God has given mankind to deal with their sins and be reconciled to Himself. Apart from
Jesus, no other religion deals with the question of Sin.
9:34 am est
It is through the birth and sacrificial death of
Jesus Christ, and His Resurrection that God has dealt in the following manner with sin:
1) God removes our sins
from us as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12)
2) God completely cleanses us from the stain of
our sins (Isaiah 1:18)
3) God throws our sins behind His back (Isaiah 38:17)
4) God remembers
our sins no more (Jreremiah 31:34)
5) God treads our sins underfoot (Micah 7:19)
casts our sins into the depths of the sea, (Micah 7:19)
Jesus resolves the question of sin for all those
who come to Him, and accept Him as Lord and Savior. Mohammed, Bhuddah, Vishnu, Confucius, and all others cannot do this
Praise the blessed name of Jesus!!!!!

Christmas without Christ?..........
6:12 am est
It seems that it has become politically incorrect to mention the name of Jesus Christ in the White House and on Capital
Hill. It has also become apparent that their unstated wish to ban His name from our country.
only one great problem with that....what will you do then with the problem of SIN? That very uncomfortable and inconvenient
word...why, simply create legislation banning it as well. So it would seem is the current administration's plan.
1 John 1:10 states that "If you claim you have not sinned, you are making God a liar and showing that
His word has no place in your heart."
If you ban Jesus Christ you take away the only Solution that God has
given us to deal with sin. Acts 4:12 says "There is salvation in no one else.There is NO OTHER NAME in all of heaven
for people to call on to save them."
Get rid of Jesus? 1John 2:2 states that" He is the sacrifice
for our sins. He takes away not only our sins but the sins of the world."
Hands off our Jesus, Washington!
May you all have a very blessed CHRIST-MAS as we celebrate and thank God for the gift of His son, Jesus, who was born in human
flesh to live and ultimately die for us on the cross so that our sins could be forgiven-- there is no greater gift

It has come to my attention that there is a person here in Haiti using the name of this Mission in his email address.
He is using Yahoo as his server. Please disregard any messages from this person as he is in no way a member of this
We are still hurting for rain. The crop will be a failure
most likely. Please pray for rain for us.
As a further sign that we are indeed in the last days, the
are a number of pseudo Christian/voodoo cults forming under the guise of being Pentecostal Christians with prophecies and
healings. We are doing what we can to make sure that the evangelical churches here have a sound doctrinal base that
centers solely on the Bible.
Besides the churches we founded at Sauvage, Dubois and Metayer, we have 2 new
sites at Frederic and Bodary. It is are hope that in the time remaining before the Rapture many more souls will be saved.
Please support us in our efforts to continue to minister to the people here in Haiti.
We are praying that you in
the states and elsewhere will also accelerate your efforts to reach the lost before the Door of Grace closes.
