Pray With Us – October 2017
All praise and honor be Yours, O God, because You are a generous God, who did not even stop short of giving us Your own Son and, through Him, eternal life. (John 3:16)
Praise God that Irma and Maria did not cause the anticipated damage. We are grateful for God’s hand of protection over the communities where we serve, and we are praying for those on other Caribbean islands and in the US where the impact was devastating.
Praise God for the launch of Triple Trek – a unique fundraising hike set for March 2018 to raise funds for Peredo Community Hospital. Hikers have begun their fundraising, and we are beginning to receive donations!
Praise God for significant donations towards Phase II of Peredo Community Hospital and the completion of the Peredo school classrooms.
Praise God for great team planning time for RoRo, Eline, Cameron, and Jennifer in Ohio last month.
Praise God for our team of Bible students and leaders who are preparing for the Belle Anse Revival week. We are also grateful for a team of pastors and leaders from the US who are preparing for this special week.
Praise God for the team from Outlook CC (IN) and First CC (Evansville, IN) who brought several extra bags of supplies for the outreach in Anse a Boeuf.
Praise God for an extra delivery of many bags of school supplies from the US via Barbara Walk.
Lord, you are our strength and salvation. Teach us to take up the shield of faith, wear the helmet of salvation, and carry the sword of the spirit, Your Word. Help us to recognize the devil’s schemes and use the shield of faith to extinguish the flaming arrows of the evil one. (Eph. 6)
Pray for our staff as they serve during a very full fall schedule, both in Haiti and the US. Ro and Eline will be spending time in both Haiti and the States. Cameron will be visiting with many individuals and churches. And Jennifer and Becky will be working on some new initiatives in the US office. May the work of our hands be used by God to expand His kingdom!
Pray for continued protection during hurricane season. RoRo has asked everyone to pray that Haiti would be spared from any damage this year. We are also praying for our church partner, Toa Baja Christian Church in Puerto Rico as their members rebuild from the damage of Maria.
Pray for the Belle Anse Revival, October 16-22. This week of door-to-door evangelism and outreach will launch HCO’s new church in this community.
Continue to pray for customs to release the dump truck. We have paid for the truck, completed all required paperwork, and done all due diligence that we can on our end. Many meetings have been taking place to ensure its release. We are specifically asking that those meeting will find favor with the officials, that the officials would find NO reason to delay the release, and that they will release the truck immediately.
