PRAY FOR HAITI – December 2018

Pray With Us – December 2018

“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” (Luke 2:14)

Praise God for over 60 NEW Every Child sponsors received in November – and a total of 395 sponsors total! We are so blessed by everyone who has stepped up to connect one-on-one with a child – or two or three! We praise God for His kind provision for our children in this way!

Praise God that ALL the children at Emmanuel Christian School in Peredo have been sponsored! RoRo and Cameron hosted a Facebook Live event on Thursday, 11/29, where they challenged our friends to finish Peredo. We are grateful for all who stepped up to make this happen!

Praise God for good progress on the Emmanuel Christian Church in Belle Anse church building! We will be blogging some photos of the progress this month and are excited for this new congregation to have a permanent place to worship!

Praise God for a new boat for HCO! Through the generosity of a couple of churches and IDES, this boat will make our travel to places like Belle Anse and Anse a Boeuf, much easier, faster, and more effective. We will be blogging some photos this month!

Praise God for his protection and provision for our Haiti staff as continued protests have popped up in Port-au-Prince over the past few weeks. We are thankful that our churches, schools, and hospital have continued operating and serving as usual.

Praise God for new connections and strengthened partnerships at several conferences in November! We are grateful for TECH (Technical Exchange for Christian Healthcare), GMHC (Global Missions Health Conference), and ICOM (International Conference on Missions) where our team is always encouraged by worship, teaching, networking, and building new relationships for the mission.

Lord, may we, like Your Son, Jesus, grow and become strong. Fill us with Your wisdom and Your grace. (Luke 2:40)

Pray for our staff as we celebrate the holidays and take some time to rest. RoRo and Eline will celebrate with the kids in Michigan. Marcus and Arin will come to the States to be with family and friends. Cameron, Jennifer, Becky, and Megan will all have some time to reconnect with their families in Indiana and Ohio. May this be a season of renewal for all of us as we prepare to serve in 2019!

Pray for 320 more Every Child sponsors and new Every Child Sponsorship Days. We continue to pray for even more friends to come alongside the children who have profiles ready and waiting on new sponsors!

Continue to pray for Phase II (surgical wing) construction to be finished by early 2019. In the coming months, our crew will be installing doors, windows, tile, and equipment.

Continue to pray for the Haitian economy and HCO’s general fund. Continued, rampant inflation and a sharp depreciation of the gourde because of the political situation are making things difficult for many Haitians. These economic issues are causing ministry dollars to not go as far due to increasing prices, creating a need for additional giving to our general fund.

Continue to pray for our 2019 teams and leaders as they recruit members, raise funds, gather supplies, and prepare themselves – body, mind, and spirit – to serve with us.

Pray for the political situation in Haiti. May God’s peace permeate this country we all love, and may the message of the Good News continue to spread, providing great joy for all who are far from Him – and for those in relationship with Him as well!

And pray with us for Every Child this month:
