Less about fear, shame, and guilt and more focus on God's love, grace, and mercy. Removing the traditional expectations of church in Haiti and allowing the Gospel to penetrate the hearts of these young people.
We want to see HOPE REALIZED through the transforming power of Jesus Christ.
Nearly 400 people showed up solely by word of mouth when we held our first worship service in Ouanaminthe on January 19, 2020. You could definitely feel God's presence and the excitement of the young people! The photo above is from that “launch” service. While this gathering may not seem "special" to those of us in the U.S., there are two BIG things to notice here: 1) the majority of the crowd is under 25 years old, and 2) many of them are wearing t-shirts, shorts and hats! Both are extremely RARE sights at church in Haiti and the response was awesome!
We are now meeting every Sunday in a rented space in a school near the center of Ouanaminthe. The photos below are of our current space. We recently purchased land and and will be building a multipurpose open-air structure that will serve as the church and as space for the community. More to come on this!
