News from the field
With Bishop Stenio Capre
We are in the process of finishing three strong months of ministry to church members and reaching out to the unsaved.
In late July, we held our annual conference for young people. It was held in the mountainous Haiti northwest. Our theme for discussions this year centered on conquering sin. We discussed how God provides victory for those in Christ Jesus. We encouraged all to repent and be confident in God’s forgiveness. During our conferences, we prayed for all the young people, dedicated three small children and babies to the Lord, and baptized a young woman upon her request. More than 200 people attended the conference that lasted one week. Several gave their lives to Christ.
After the conference, we held two weeks of prayer meetings in August. The first prayer week gathered the young women of the ministry to pray for their concerns. The second week, we gathered the young men together to bind together in earnest prayer.
In the past week, we held a few crusades in the northwest region of Haiti. During seven nights of crusades, fifteen people confessed new faith in Christ. We will work together with local leaders to disciple the new believers.
We have heard from many of you that you are missing Bishop Stenio Capre’s visits to your church. It has been—and remains—important for him to stay in Haiti to minister there. To help him remain in the field, and to keep you better informed, we are working on technological ways to bring Bishop Capre and the ministry teams right to you. We are presently developing a podcast that will bring you more timely updates from the field, and we are planning to bring other web-based options too. Stay tuned!
We ask you for your prayers so that God can open doors for us.
