Dear Brothers and sisters,
Greetings to all of you in Jesus’ name!
I want to thank all of you who pray for Living Water. I know some of you pray specifically for me. It is wonderful to have brothers and sisters in many places praying for oneself. I thank My God, Our God for you. Please continue to pray for us. May I ask you to pray also for my beloved sister Regina Green. She is battling cancer. She needs your prayers and mine. Please do so for us.
I have more to say about Living Water than I can cover in this article. I hope to send another message before the end of the week. First of all, God’s people here continue to work hard for the Lord. The enemy is fighting back very hard as well. Yet we continue to make progress.
Last Sunday about 700 people met to worship Jesus in different services. While they were worshiping here, I joined the believers in Marmelade where there were a little more than a hundred in worship. I preached there in the morning and in Gonaives for the evening service. Last Saturday, we had seven who were baptized into Christ. Now comes the battle of making them disciples of Christ and that is the hardest of all tasks. Pray for them and pray for our leaders.
The feeding program continues at Living Water. Thanks to people who sponsor a child or who sponsor RBK (Rice and Beans for Kids) and thanks to our brothers and sisters at IDES. We cannot overestimate the importance of this program in our school. It is a tremendous blessing. For some of the students that will be their only meal in several days. Thanks to you who make it possible. May God bless you for us.
Last week we had a wonderful medical team with us. They arrived on Thursday, Feb. 16 and worked on Friday afternoon, Feb. 17th, all the way thru Feb 22. There were six in total, four whom are doctors, one LPN and one professor who made the team. They did a tremendous job. They came mostly from Springfield, Illinois.
They were well equipped and helped about 1200 people. They brought medicine and also bought medicine for almost 2,000 dollars in town. They did a great job. They have given many people what they needed the most: medical attention. We thank God for Sandy Brewer, for Drs. Mike Brewer, Careyana B., Tabatha W. Gretchen J. and for prof. Janet O. They worked tirelessly during all those days. This article shows a few photos and we have many more of them.
I want to use this opportunity to thank Dr. Mark Curtis for making all the arrangements so that a number of my people had cataract surgery. We went for the follow up today and everyone looks good. The people testify already that they see better. Thanks to Dr. Moyes, Dr. Brigitt, Dr. Maureen, Dr. Mark and all those who have made this possible. May God bless you all.
