A Recap

I haven’t written lately. I’ve hardly known where to begin! All the strength was drained from my body since the last chemo treatment. After already having being wiped out, I made the mistake (about three weeks ago) of trying to stand up for too long. With the freezer door open, I was searching for something to thaw out for lunch. Losing my balance, I fell backwards on the kitchen floor and paid for it for weeks with a sore back. In trying to break my fall, I grabbed hold of a kitchen chair on the way down and somehow hurt my right breast. If you’ve ever been injured in a part of your body, you suddenly become aware of the vital part all the nerves and tissue play in helping you get around. The simple act of sitting up, swinging my legs over the side of the bed, standing and steadying myself, then walking forward (hesitantly), has been extremely exhausting and painful. I am so thankful that the body has an amazing way of healing itself, but it takes time and much patience. Oh, to feel normal again! I am sure that I’m much better than I was because so many of you have been praying!

Here’s some timely advice to anyone who needs to hear it. If you’re sick, DON’T undertake a big project like refinancing your home (what were we thinking???) when you still have a ministry to care for. This season in my life is teaching me to take better care of me.

We are so grateful for so many of you who have checked in on me. We want to share a special word from our friend, Vic Langel, who has a special heart for us and for Haiti. We asked him if he would be willing to say a few good words for Rehoboth. Thanks Vic! Enjoy!

Attention Rehoboth Supporters!

I haven’t posted lately because I have been recovering from my last chemo treatment. My strength has been greatly reduced and the smallest task seems monumental. I thank all of you who have been praying so faithfully for me. For this reason and the fact that I somehow blocked myself out of our Rehoboth website, I have just figured out how to get back in!

Important Announcement!

For those of you who have donated to Rehoboth Ministries and wish to receive a giving statement for tax purposes, you can write denise@thelordstable.cc who manages our finances. She will be happy to send you a copy, but you MUST request one.

Prayers Needed Please!

I hardly know where to begin! There’s so much going on in Haiti lately as well as here on our end. All of it needs your prayers!

Haiti has been in turmoil again. There was an attempted coup on President Jovenel Moise’s life. Fortunately, it was unsuccessful. You can read the article above for more details. How does this affect the mission work going on in Haiti? Our schools have been closed since last week – elementary and Bible institute. Even though Cap-Haitian is on the other end of the island, far from the capital of Port-au-Prince, the whole country and its people are affected. This means the children who come for that all-important meal they get in school are sitting home hungry. We were soon to have much-needed food boxes brought down from the city of Archaïe where Children’s Lifeline is located. However, this is a good 6 hour drive one way on bad roads into the south of Haiti where it’s more volatile. In the light of the present circumstances, it’s too dangerous to be on the main road.

On our end: I (Dana) have my fourth and final round of chemo this coming Wednesday. I am just now getting my energy back from the last round, even though this Wednesday will make a total of four weeks. Everyone’s different, but chemo has been brutal for me. It requires every ounce of strength I have to do the simplest tasks. I am anxious for this phase of my life to be over.

Please remember to pray for the peace of Haiti, the missionary work that has been going on there, its law-abiding citizens, and the protection of President Moïse. Thank you for your prayers for me (Dana) as well. Your prayers mean everything!

Happy Birthday, CFC!

31 years young!

Yesterday, our flagship church celebrated its 31st anniversary. Le Centre de formation chrétienne (Center of Christian Formation) started in the most humble of beginnings. A temporary shelter with a thatched roof was erected right in the middle of voudou territory where the drums played incessantly night and day. We were ”wet-behind-the-ears” missionaries with big dreams. Little did we know all the trials we would go through that would bring us to this point today. But, God has been so faithful!. In the place of the thatched roof structure (called a tonnelle) stands a beautiful church building erected for the glory of God. Oh, by the way….you don’t hear the voudou drums anymore.

I shared an interview recently between our son, John, and a new staff member of Rehoboth, Gary St Vil. Gary agreed to share about what it was like growing up as a kid in our church. We are so proud of the man he has become today!

Gary

Our church was founded on February 4th,1990 by a missionary couple (the Adams family), under a tonnelle covered with a thatched roof. In a area where demonic worship was the norm and many kidnappings took place, God started to do great changes in the lives of the people. A lot of people came to accept Jesus as their personal Saviour.

I was 5 years old when my family came to this church in 1992.  Even though I was a young boy, I’ve been interested by everything in the church. As a church where lots of missionaries came to visit, I heard a language that I couldn’t understand. I became very interested in their language. I can remember one day I asked John, the  pastor’s son, to teach me English. He gave me a little Oxford dictionary. That was my first English book!

As a boy, I gave my life to Jesus and got baptized in1996. During the same year, I joined the church’s school which had been founded also. I was in the 2nd grade. So, I continued to grow through the church and the school.

The church went through many great difficulties such as the kidnapping of our Founding Pastor in 2006, and the illness of our Pastor in Canada in 2010. We had construction problems and lacked the money to build a decent building. But in spite of these great trials, God allowed us to overcome them with strength and courage and joy. In 2017, God gave us a great building through the ministry of Orphans Promise. Also our church gave birth to other churches. Now, God has allowed me to be a leader in this same church. We have a great team headed by Pastor Delinx. He was my teacher in 6th grade. Today, he oversees the church while the founding pastor is not in the country as well as the school. Please help me to say, Happy Anniversary to all the members of our church here in Petite-Anse. God bless you!

February 4th 1990 to February 4th 2021
31 years of grace !
