One of the greatest accomplishments of 2014 has been the construction of the new Hope Center in the mountainous village of Thoman. Similar to our first Hope Center in Galette Chambon, the new Hope Center has a medical clinic, dental clinic, house for American missionaries, 4 dorms that house 28 people for mission trips, kitchen, outdoor dining area, and two bedrooms for interns.
In addition, a missionary couple from Arkansas, Terry and Kathy Warren, has joined us full-time to live in Thoman and operate the new Hope Center. Since the Warrens moved to Haiti in November, we have already seen over 70 people in remote villages near Thoman come to faith in Christ and Terry has begun teaching a New Believers class for new Christians.

End of the Year
If you are thinking of an end-of-the-year gift, would you please consider BGM and our work in Haiti. We want, and need, to finish the year strong financially so we can continue to share the love of Christ in very tangible ways in Haiti.
You can give online HERE or send a check to: But God Ministries, 1440 North State Street, Jackson, MS, 39202.
In addition, I ask for your prayers for wisdom and energy for our Haitian staff, our American staff in Haiti, and our Board of Directors.
