Contend for the Faith
I was asked to give the message last Sunday in church...what an honor!  I spoke from Jude 1:3-4.  It just seemed so appropriate because of the declining fervor in many churches and the growing apostasy as evidenced by the increase of immorality and corruption in the churches.

The only positive thing that one can see is that it shows that the Lord's return is immanent.  God's Word says that before Christ's return there shall be a "falling away". Can things get worse than they are today?  Apparently they will as the terrible  Tribulation period will be like no other time yet experienced. 

We must be more active in getting the message out that Jesus is Lord and that anyone who puts their faith in Him can be saved from sin and the wages of sin- spiritual and physical death! My church is doing more evangelism in the community where it is located in attempt to save souls while there is yet time left.

Gospel Growers is helping two Christian Radio stations in Haiti- one near Cote de Fer and the other near the city of Cayes.  The wonderful Haitian Christian music and messages are reaching thousands for Christ.  How exciting it is to partner with Jesus in trying to save souls for the Kingdom of God!

The clinic in Dariol cares for the sick but the staff are trained to evangelize those who come through the doors also.  The children in the schools we give budgetary assistance to are also teaching the children about Jesus.  It is our aim and passion to get the Gospel out to as many people and in as many ways as possible!

You can help by sending financial assistance and by praying for our work, our staff and our goals.  Thank you to those who have helped us in the past and to those who continue to stand with us as we seek to reach out to the Haitian people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

Thanksgiving Eve
Thanksgiving Day is tomorrow, but there is always reason to thank the Lord each and every moment of each and every day!  GOD has been so good to me over the years.  Thirty years as a missionary in Haiti has given me many occasions to see what a mighty GOD I serve and how able He is to resolve even my most difficult problem!

Hurricane Sandy caused much devastation here in the states, but there are so many agencies and organizations to help those who have suffered.  Haiti has very little help in this regard.  Their first and foremost help comes from GOD.  There is next to no help from the government and those around them are pretty much just as poor as themselves.  They have to rely on GOD!

As you gather around your table this Thanksgiving to enjoy the wonderful meal provided...thank GOD!  Please remember to pray for the Haitian people whose crops were pretty much destroyed by Sandy and are having to go hungry.  If  you can spare a little from your blessings which God has provided, please send something to Gospel Growers to help those who are suffering in Haiti

Sandy update
I continue to get calls and feedback from Haiti about the situation in Haiti since the passage of Sandy there.  As Haiti has little infrastructure in the countryside, there was not much to report there except that the roads are pretty damaged. 

Dariol isn't able to receive buses from Port au Prince as they normally do every Sunday, Tuesday and Friday.  The vehicular traffic can get to Cote de Fer, but the rest of the way is still blocked.  My plan is to return to Haiti at the end of this month still holds.

Many trees were knocked down and the crops that they depend on were greatly damaged.  Fruits on the trees were also knocked off.  Hunger is always a constant companion in times like these.

To make matters worse, giving is down.  I will be making a decision soon as to my ability to continue to reside in Haiti or to run the mission from the States and depend on our Haitian co-staff to keep the ministries going.  They are more than able to do this as my present stay in the States proves.  What they do absolutely need are the funds to keep the ministries going. 

It is expensive to keep a missionary in Haiti, and the funds used to do this would be better utilized to fund the Haitian staff and ministries.  At least this is how things are looking at this present time.  Please pray with us in this regard.  I love my brothers and sisters there and would like to continue to stay with them, but keeping the ministries going is more important than my physical presence......unless there would be a increase in funds coming into the mission.

So, for the moment I am keeping in contact with my friends there and staff by cell phone and Facebook.  The spread of technology, even in Dariol, now makes it possible to communicate easily throughout the world.  What a blessing for spreading the Gospel IF people take advantage of it and use it for God's glory.
