The GAiN mission team to Haiti has just completed their final day of ministry. It is hard to believe that the week has passed. It was a great day and here it is in pictures.
We conducted our fourth vision clinic but this time it was on the NVM compound. We served 79 patients and had 7 of them pray to receive Christ. The number of conversions was lower today because many of them attend the NVM church. But it was wonderful to serve them. The total number of patients for the week was 333 and we had the privilege of leading 110 of them to Christ.
At 3 pm every Friday, Cheryl teaches a group of young Haitian women how to sew. The mission team members helped her out today. Many hands makes more personal attention.
During the day, our three mission team men took on a special project. They decided to build Adam a new work bench in the warehouse. This will be a huge blessing.
Before the sewing class we took the team to Chambrun. This is the poor community about a 1/2 mile from the NVM compound. They wanted to visit the NVM children’s home and take a brief tour of the community. We had a great time and the sights and sounds were eye opening.
We ended our ministry day cooking supper. The team volunteered to cook chili and pineapple cake. It was fantastic and a lot of fun in the kitchen.
We had a wonderful week with this team. We want to thank each one of them for coming to Haiti and for their humble and diligent service. And a special thanks to those of you who have been praying for our mission in Haiti. We really do appreciate it! We pray that the team will have a good trip home tomorrow and that the memories of this week will linger long and will fundamentally change them and their future ministry.
