In May 2018, Dr. Johnnie Blount of Bridging the Gap brought a mission team of 8 to the Missions of Love Compound. As always, we had a very exciting and productive time. We spent three mornings with about 150 Pastor’s and Leaders from the area churches worshipping, teaching the Word of God and providing personal ministry. We always provide them with pens and notepads and at the end of the conference we give the men a necktie and the women took a necktie home for their husbands. It is always a blessing to spend time with them.
We also held a three day VBS for the Children. This is also exciting. There were 450 children in attendance. We used puppets to teach them about hygiene, keeping MOL grounds clean and the Word of God. We also played games and did crafts with them. At the end of the third day, be made sure that all the children went home with a gift bag. The time that we spend with these children is priceless.
We held a two-day Women’s Conference for the women in the area. We spent time with about 100 women worshipping, dance and teaching them about who they are in Christ. The most important part of this conference is being able to love on these women. At the end of the conference, we gave all the women a bracelet and a scarf. They are all so precious.
This year at the request of one of our young Haitian men, we held a three-day conference for the young people. This was the first time doing this. If was a wonderful time. There were 100 young people in attendance. We taught them that they do not have to be afraid of their future and then we had a question and answer session. We gave a bracelet that says “MWEN PA PE POU AVNI MWEN!” which says, “I AM NOT AFRAID OF MY FUTURE!”. These young people requested that we continue to have this conference.
One of the greatest things that we do during these conferences is we get the opportunity to serve and feed them every day. We feed them natural food and spiritual food.
John 21:17…….. Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.
On this trip, we participated in a revival in one of the local churches where Pastor Johnnie Blunt and Pastors Bobby and Kim Watkins preached. Also, on Sunday morning the mission team split up and went to three of the area churches to preach.
The BTG Mission Team would like to thank MOL, Blaud Mondesir and Mrs. Nancy Bukovnik for the way they always take great care of us while we are in Haiti.
