Prayer for John and for others

This week John was invited to visit a Bible College in California. He’ll travel from there to Richmond, VA, and then back to Haiti next week. Here’s what he had to share. Please pray for his safe return.

 

89450606_10156729575437294_3824045323362238464_n”I spent the day at SUM Bible College close to Sacramento. This innovative school is providing fully accredited theological education at extremely affordable rates to people all over the world thanks to the Internet. I wish they had a program in French so our Bible college could join in from Haiti! My friend Manny is in the process of launching a cohort in Richmond, Va. I’ll be at his church on Sunday to share the Word.”  John

Coronavirus

Even though we are in Haiti, we are following the news very closely concerning all those who have been or may be affected by the Coronavirus. As far as we know, there have been no reports of this in Haiti. We pray for the Lord’s protection upon each and every one of you.

Happy Birthday, John!

82803300_10156589327172294_1551168924039512064_nToday, our firstborn has turned 35 years old. We celebrated early with a chocolate cake since he flew out yesterday to participate in some program instruction which relates to our Bible institute. We are so proud of John and all his accomplishments. He is such a hard worker and ever learning. The things he has contributed to Rehoboth Ministries are too many to number and this ministry is better off because of his contributions.

Happy Birthday, John and safe travels! We’re praying your trip will be fruitful and that you’ll meet folks who can become lifetime friends. Thanks also to Lux Church in Richmond, Virginia, for making John’s trip possible!

Team Hennigan and a Powerful Week of Ministry!

 

IMG_8624 2IMG_0650 2IMG_1929 2IMG_4989IMG_84260

What a busy week it’s been! Three visitors flew in from Richmond, Virginia, and left a significant deposit with Rehoboth Ministries. Andy Clark, Pastor Mike Hennigan, and Pastor Victor (Manny) Peña met first with our Bible school students and then with the key leaders of the Rehoboth church-planting network. They shared on the subject of Koinonia (communion) being the essential element needed for a team to work together. Drawing from local construction practices for imagery, they talked about how crucial it is to have individual character (concrete blocks), trust between believers (mortar), and fellowship (iron rebar inside the blocks) in order for a building to remain strong for years to come. All these elements are essential in a country where earthquakes have brought so much devastation. They are even more essential, however, to building a team that can accomplish great things. This teaching brought both our Bible students and our key leaders closer together in the knowledge that their strength comes from their connection to the Lord and each other.

On Sunday, the team split up with each guest minister preaching in a different church. At the main church, we celebrated the church’s 30th anniversary. Pastor Manny preached a powerful message on celebrating the past while believing for greater things. It was a beautiful time of reflection and anticipation of an even greater future for Haiti!

Pastor Mike and John went and strengthened one of our rural church plants and Andy preached in the church located right here on our own compound. In between times of ministry, there were many conversations around the table. We thoroughly enjoyed brainstorming for the future with our visitors. All in all, koinonia was taught and lived out this week. On the team’s last day, we all took time to enjoy the beach in February. One of the nice things about living in Haiti is that winter only happens in movies!

Back On The Radar

OIP.7JcW40-vVEDjmjf925uU6gHaEIHi Everyone! I haven’t written a post in months due to a glitch with the WordPress website which I didn’t know how to resolve. Fortunately, it’s been fixed and, hopefully, I won’t have any more problems.

We returned to Haiti last Wednesday and we’re happy to be back and busy. I wish we could send you some of this gorgeous sunshine. We are gearing up for a group of pastors to come in February to help us celebrate the 30th anniversary of our mother church in Petite Anse. They’ll also be holding a conference with the key leaders of the work here as well as teaching  in our Bible school. We keep our teams busy! Speaking of the Bible College, we’ll be celebrating the graduation of our 10th promotion in May. Pastor John Finochio from Crossroads Life Church in Hamilton, Ontario, will be our guest speaker. We have lots of exciting things going on here!

After a very tumultuous year, Cap-Haitian is calm. It’s great to see movement in the streets and our church welcomed us back heartily on Sunday morning. Thanks everyone for your prayers for us!

We have a small window of time here until we return stateside in May. There are lots of teams pouring into Haiti right now to help and encourage the Haitian people after such a devastating blow to their country. Would you like to bring a team to work with us? We have all kinds of needs and would be happy to communicate with you. Or maybe you’re just one person who wants to offer their talents where they’re so badly needed. Contact us with the information below. We have several areas where your help is badly needed.

A Whirlwind Trip

UnknownWe just completed a whirlwind trip of sorts. We traveled to Goldsboro to visit Pastor Mitch Ham at The Lord’s Table Church on Tuesday. We sat and discussed instruments that need to be purchased and shipped to Haiti. Mitch and the church helped us out in choosing the best instruments for the money allotted to us. We have raised $2,000 which will enable us to finally buy some drums. We still need a new electric piano as well as an amplifier for our bass guitar. We need other items as well and we concluded that it would take an estimate of $5,000 to buy what we needed. That leaves $3,000 more to raise. Would you like to help?

We left Goldsboro to visit our good friend, Myrtle Wickham. We came to wish her an early Happy Birthday and took her out to eat. Myrtle is a true ”Mother of Israel” and will turn 88 years old tomorrow.

After leaving Tarboro the next morning, we stopped by Greenville and visited with some longtime friends and donors of Rehoboth Ministries, Johnny and Phyllis Rogers. These are two people who have stood in the gap for Rehoboth for many years and we were happy to have a little time with them.

We are now back in Jacksonville and enjoying the time that we have left stateside. John returns from Haiti in 8 days and we’ll spend Christmas here this year with our family. It will be our first Christmas stateside since 2010 when Prit was recovering from his aneurysms. In early January, we plan to return to Haiti, Lord willing.

If we have not seen you or visited your church, group, or meeting, we’d love to come and at least say ”hi.” We still have a short window of time and would love to visit!

The Broken Candy-Cane

child

( I have been reminded today of something that happened many years ago at our main compound. I guess, since it’s #Giving Tuesday, this story came to my mind. )

We had a young guest speaker who was sharing a devotional with our school kids.  The speaker’s subject was about giving wholeheartedly. It was a good teaching. He was making the point that, when we give, we should give royally. At that point, he held up a broken candy cane which had fallen on the ground and was dirty. He then said, ”If I offered this to one of you, you wouldn’t want this broken and dirty candy cane, would you?” He didn’t wait for them to respond assuming that they would reject the gift. After all, he had used the same illustration in other countries and the children would instantly and indignantly reply, ”Noooo!”

Yet, I watched our school kids’ eyes grow large as he held up the broken piece of candy and could see that these children would have happily taken him up on his offer.  You see, these children didn’t eat on a regular basis and knew what real hunger was. As the young man continued with his devotional, I studied the little ones’ bewildered eyes and offered up yet one more silent plea for the Lord to make a way for us to have a feeding program for our more than 1200 students in three schools. I’m happy to say that the Lord did answer that prayer. Thanks to the wonderful ministry of Orphans Promise and donors who give on a regular basis, we can ensure that these kids eat one hot meal five days a week.

Our schools are continually growing and, as we establish new church plants, we also plant a new school. This means an increase in the number of children who are coming to us to get both a Christian education… and a hot meal. Would you consider sowing into this need and be the answer to yet one more silent plea for help to feed hungry children?It’s #GivingTuesday and YOU CAN make a difference!

Happy Thanksgiving!

6b1eae173dea456a808627b035f2670a--thanksgiving-turkey-pictures-happy-thanksgiving-Since Prit and I are stateside until January, we will be enjoying a dinner with friends here in Jacksonville tomorrow. Thanks to Agape Flights’ ministry in Venice, FL, we have a frozen turkey sitting in our freezer in Haiti. When we return there, we’ll cook the turkey and celebrate the Lord’s goodness to us. Our Haitian workers will wholeheartedly join us for this Thanksgiving meal and it will be beyond the norm of anything they experience on a daily basis.

We wish to say how incredibly thankful we are for all our donors and prayer partners. Rehoboth wouldn’t exist without you. We are able to do great things because of your commitment to this ministry. Please know that each and every one of you is incredibly special to us and that the Lord is a silent witness to your charity. We know our folks in Haiti would echo our thanks if they could. Here are just a few things you are doing to make an impact in Haiti:

Providing an education as well as a hot meal five days a week for the elementary students in four schools.

Training up future leaders in our Bible institute

Providing salaries for church workers which, in turn, enable them to provide for their families

Sending future leaders to a university to get a college degree. (We have one student graduating in December with a degree in Music and another who graduated from the School of Tourism last year!)

Enabling us to hold leadership and youth conferences each year

Providing funds to feed the hungry and send the sick to the hospital

Enabling us to train and equip a generation to rise up and believe God to overcome incredible obstacles and to heal their land

Thank you!

In Addition to Black Friday….

2016-05-31-10-08-05While Haiti is still reeling from months of instability and all sorts of destruction wreaked on the country, our folks have cautiously and timidly re-opened our schools and the Bible Institute. Although much time has been lost, we still plan to graduate our Bible school students, as planned, in May. Our son, John, is already back and working with our leaders to make this happen.

The majority of our school children have not returned to school yet due to heavy rains that flooded their homes. Yesterday, Pastor Delinx reported that we had 280 students in attendance. Last year, we had over 800 students just in the main school. Anxious parents are still studying the political climate and simultaneously attempting to scrape together money for their most basic needs.

With Black Friday coming up in the U.S.A., stores and businesses are vying for your attention to buy this item or that one. Every morning my e-mail list is loaded with pleas to spend money at this or that store. In addition to your Thanksgiving and Christmas shopping, would you consider giving a generous donation to Rehoboth? This would assure that some struggling parents can feed their children this month? There is no greater blessing than helping the helpless. Simply donate to the link below or send a check and earmark it Food Drive/Haiti.

A sincere thanks goes to all those who have responded so generously to our requests. The transfer was received last week to Haiti and a burden has  already been lifted! There are still so many more in need of help, however.

Happy Birthday, Prit!

IMG_0074.jpeg

It takes so little to please him. Our conversation this morning went something like this.

Me: ”So, where do you want to go eat?”

Prit: ”I don’t know. Where do you want to eat?”

Me: ”Honey, it’s YOUR birthday. You choose.”

Prit: ”It really doesn’t matter to me. Where do you want to eat?”

What a blessing to even have a choice since we’re still stateside. We finally decided on Olive Garden where Prit was all to happy to get a complimentary dessert.

Two waitresses in the Olive Garden told him, ”You definitely don’t look like you’re 64!” One thought he was in his 40’s.  If they only knew! After almost 38 years on the mission field, a kidnapping, two brain aneurysms, and the list goes on, I marvel and am thankful that he’s still here. Here’s to many more, honey.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PRIT!!!!!
