Mardi Gras Youth retreat
Well, it's that time of year again!  Every time February rolls around, our thoughts turn towards our annual Youth Retreat which is a 3 day assembly of Christian young people during the Mardi Gras holiday.  This year the site chosen for the event is Meteye which is one of the three churches we planted in the Dariol area.  There should be about 150 teenagers participating.

Since Mardi Gras is a purely worldly event, we want to bring our youth together and apart from all the noise and dangers that frequently occur at this time.

Seminars, round tables and other events are held in order to deepen the spiritual awareness and to facilitate the chance for a closer walk with the Lord in their young lives.  Each evening is open to the community at an Evangelistic Service when the youth come together for praise and worship, so even the adults will benefit from this important event.

If you'd care to make a donation towards this Retreat please send a gift to our Southside, Texas office.  These three days always have a positive effect on the spiritual growth of our Haitian young people.

To everything, there is a season...
Ecclesiastes tells us to everything, there is a season.  Seasons do change, as do circumstances and needs. For thirty years I have ministered to the Haitian people as a nurse/missionary.  Over the years I have been able to disciple a number of Haitians so that they are now able to run the ministries that I started and so take responsibility for helping their own people.

I will assume the role of a stateside volunteer, serving as a liason between the Haitians and our office here.  I will also still be in charge of the dispursement of funds to carry out the different activities that Gospel Growers is involved in.

We have formed a handpicked committee of 4 responsible, young men who will oversee the work and forward reports to me by mail, by email and by telephone.  I praise the Lord for raising up these people at just the time the change was needed.  Here in the United States economic woes have caused a drop in funds to the ministry, so in order use what we get to best advantage we have decided to use indigenous missionaries.  The money needed to care for one US missionary can support several Haitian ones.  The time just seemed right to make the change over so this has now occurred.

We hope that all who have helped us in the past will continue to do so as the need in Haiti is still great.  Three years after the devastating earthquake and there is so much help being sought.  The many Christian ministries have done much to move Haiti from spiritual darkness to the light of the Gospel.  Please continue to help us so that this work can go on!
