Great Trip – Incredible Ministry…
I just returned from Haiti Monday night. I was blown away by all the incredible ministry taking place through our BGM missionaries and our Haitian partners on the ground. God is doing a great work!
This past Saturday we hiked from Thoman to the village of Maingrette. Our purpose was to check on the water line coming from a spring at the top of the mountain all the way down to Thoman. The water makes it to Thoman sporadically and therefore the people have to walk all the way down the mountain to a stream and then walk back up the mountain with 45 pounds of water in a bucket on their head. It’s usually the women and children who carry the water. This summer, we have a team that will camp on the mountain in Maingrette and fix the water line, build water stations for the people living on the mountain, and make water available for the people in Thoman.
Church in Thoman
I had the privilege of preaching Sunday morning at the church in Thoman where Pastor Mathurin serves as the Pastor.
Some people in Haiti live in unimaginable poverty. They live with little food, no electricity, no running water, and no money. Yet they struggle on. They fight for their families. They try to somehow provide for their children. They are loved by God and sometimes they just need a hand-up and a little encouragement.
Great Work in Galette Chambon
We stopped in Galette Chambon Monday morning. Tony and Mickie West continue to do an incredible job ministering in that community. Also, we were able to visit with Nash and Emily Barber at the orphanage and they are also doing great!
News from the Miss. Delta
While our work continues in Haiti, big things are happening with our work in the Miss. Delta.
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Ron Caloss is serving as the Volunteer Medical Director of our Dental Clinic in Jonestown. Dr. Caloss is board certified in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. He received his medical degree from the University of Texas and currently teaches and performs surgery at The University of Mississippi Medical Center.
We will begin seeing patients on March 16, 2018. Thereafter, we will host volunteer dentists and dental hygienists on a weekly basis, seeing patients every Friday as we have volunteers. Please call our office at 601-983-1179 and speak with Beth if you would like to volunteer.
As you can see, God is using But God Ministries in marvelous ways. Also, as you are aware, it takes a great deal of resources to do what God has called us to do. Would you please consider financially supporting BGM and our work in Haiti and the Miss. Delta? Your gift will go a long way in helping us share the love of Christ in very tangible ways in that poverty-stricken nation.
You can give online HERE or send a check to: But God Ministries, 400 Fontaine Place, Suite 103, Ridgeland, MS, 39157.
In addition, I ask for your prayers for wisdom and energy for our Haitian staff, our American staff in Haiti, our staff in the States, and our Board of Directors.
Can’t Wait To See What God Does Next,
