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!

https://www.msn.com/en-xl/news/other/haiti-judge-among-23-arrested-for-coup-attempt/ar-BB1dtQVH

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 !

Our Donors Speak!

We absolutely love this couple! Phyllis goes way back to grade school with me (Dana). So we’ve known each other almost all our lives. Amazingly, after spending 38 years on the mission field, she has always been a constant friend and we’ve never lost touch. We are so grateful for their friendship and for their partnership with Rehoboth Ministries!

We gladly support Rehoboth Ministries for a number of reasons.  However, the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Dana, Prit and John is the beautiful faces of the little children.  They seem to radiate God’s love. To see them worshipping and singing, praising our Lord and Savior – leaves no question in my mind.  We are so very thankful, if we have helped in any small way, to further the cause in Christ in Haiti. Herb and Phyllis Kimrey

Bible School Fundraiser

Sorry about the mistype in case you missed it. We still have $18,014 to raise for the Bible School fundraiser. Would you like to help us train up a leader for Haiti? No gift is too small!

A Recent Graduate of IBAG Speaks

This is a great interview between Gary St Vil and our son, John. Gary was a former student at our Bible institute and shares different ways that IBAG ( Institut Biblique de l’Alliance de Gråce) helped mold him to be the leader that he is today. Gary is now working for Rehoboth Ministries and is doing a great job. His role is multi-faceted since he speaks English and he can serve in different capacities. He will be a liaison between our leaders and our other churches in Haiti as well as serve as a communicator between those on the field and our Board Directors here stateside. Gary is a member of our main church in Petite-Anse and has come a long way from the little boy who grew up on the church bench. Hiis parents were always active members in the church as well as the rest of the family.

Gary has been a tremendous help to me, Dana, in getting testimonies and pictures of two students each month to send to Orphans Promise. This has definitely lightened my load, especially going through chemo treatments. Gary will be responsible for teams which come to Haiti to get them settled and purchase any materials they may need for projects.

We are so thankful that Gary is on our team and we wish him the best! We are proud that Gary is home grown and shares Rehoboth’s ideals concerning leadership.

Fundraiser: So far, we have reduced our $25,000 goal to $18,014. We have just under $7,000 to go! Would you like to help us?

Finding the Humor in it all!

Wednesday, I had my third round of chemo. Thursday, I felt better than I had in a long time. I even felt like the old me! But, by Friday, I began the familiar descent into untold weakness and the attempt to stand on wobbly legs which could only carry me so far. I have slept and slept, only to wake up and sleep some more…. But, even during these times, I am reminded of my human frailty and utter dependence upon God and others.

In addition to giving thanks in all things, I have learned to even find humor in these situations. Today, I sat at the dining room table and gave Prit step-by-step instructions for making macaroni and cheese. Since it was a small amount, I told him to open up the can of chicken noodle soup and heat it up too. John is back home from Haiti and we planned to have a “threesome meal.” Somewhere between making these two meals, Prit thought that I had said to combine them. So, we had a new dish of macaroni and cheese + chicken soup. We had a good laugh over it and it was actually quite good! Prit gave me permission to share this tale because he’s good at poking fun at himself. In his defense, for someone who is not comfortable in the kitchen, he has made multiple trips back and forth to the kitchen to fetch Gatorade or some other item and constantly asks me if I need anything. Though it’s been a rough three days, I am blessed and encourage you to try to find the humor in it all! Here’s a scientifically known fact about laughter:

Fact: Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.

Our Donors Speak!

Mark & Norma Lloyd

My wife Norma and I support Rehoboth Ministries for multiple reasons. Up front, when you consider the fact that Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere, the need is tremendous. We have known Prit and Dana since our college days and we know firsthand that they are not only dedicated Christians, but exhibit the highest ethics and integrity in everything they do. We always know that any funds we send their way will be used in the right way. Further, we love their ministry focus; especially the focus on feeding children. It is significant that for some of these children, the food they receive from Rehoboth may be their only meal of the day. We support Prit, Dana, and Rehoboth Ministries with no hesitation!

Round three and other news…

Third Round

Wednesday, I am scheduled for my third round of chemo. I have been steadily working on the many responsibilities which this ministry requires while I have my regular strength. My chief goal following chemotherapy is to allow my body to rest. My white blood cell count takes a serious nose dive after these treatments. During these times, I have experienced a level of fatigue I did not know existed. As usual, I am asking for your prayer support and thank so many of you who have been faithful to remember me in so many ways. Your love and thoughtfulness continues to amaze me!

Fundraiser

Our goal of $25,000 towards our Bible School Fundraiser is now just below $19,000. This fundraiser is two-fold. Our professors badly need a raise as the cost of living in Haiti is exorbitant – and that’s to live very simply. Rehoboth’s goal is to augment their salaries as well as to provide scholarship money for our students to help them complete their studies. Your gift would mean so much during this time. Both our leaders and leaders-in-training would thank you! Can you help? Below is the information for how to give and you can earmark your donation Bible School.

A Special Thanks

A special thanks goes out to those of you who have responded to this need and for those who are regular givers to Rehoboth!

In Loving Memory

We received some very sad news this morning. One of our most faithful and trusted leaders in Haiti has passed away. He was recently interned in the hospital with high blood sugar and we had been told that he was back home. Praying and hoping that this was only a setback from which he would recover, we were shocked to learn that he had passed on.

Ramcès Payoute

Ramses Payoute worked for Rehoboth Ministries for 31 years. He served on the church committee as the bookkeeper and oversaw the money which came into our main church from offerings supplied by its members, then presented us with a weekly report. He always had a second man with him to count the money, but Ramses was our chief financial officer. We are full of sorrow this day. He was a faithful member of our congregation and he left behind a spotless record. I remember hearing Prit say, ”I have never missed a dime with Ramses over the finances.” His faithfulness, wise counsel, and great attitude will be sorely missed. Our hearts go out to his wife and family during this time and we feel a great void in knowing that he is no longer among us and that we cannot be there to celebrate his homecoming. But, even through the tears, we can say, ”Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been received into your Heavenly home.” Our loss is Heaven’s gain. May the Lord raise up many more ”Ramceses” to serve Rehoboth Ministries in Haiti. Unfortunately, all our pictures are in Haiti and someone sent us this copy. It will have to do.

Would you remember his family in your prayers today? A mighty tree has fallen.

19…and counting!

Great news! We have received some new donations for our Bible Institute fundraiser. Starting with a goal of $25,000, it has been reduced to $19,000. Thank you SO much to those of you who have sown into this fundraiser!

Would you like to help us? No gift is too small (or large!) Better yet, how would you like to share the journey with a student and give monthly so that he (or she) could cross the finish line? Now, that’s an investment! This fundraiser is also to help raise the salaries of our teachers to ease the many financial hardships of living in Haiti.
