From October 29 thru November 8, Pat Duarte-retired director and treasurer of MOL- led a conference team to Jolivert. Pat was accompanied by MOL director Dale Breedlove. The team was from Bethesda Ministries International of Evansville, IN.
Bishop Darrell Cook, who has made several trips to the Jolivert area, was pleased to have his wife, Pastor Tanya Cook, with him on her first visit there. Sister Brenda Lewis had dreamed and prayed of a mission trip as a girl and thanks the Lord that Haiti was an answer several decades later. As a young wife and mother, Sister Kori Hinton, was thankful for the opportunity to serve Jesus beyond the familiar area of Evansville.
Sunday, Nov. 1st, was a special Ordination Service at the church at Limit pastored by Jean Robert. Several active believers from the surrounding area, who had completed months of training, were given their charges as pastors, evangelists, or deacons. At sunset before the evening service, four new believers were baptized in the river.
The women conducted a women’s conference on Monday afternoon, giving their testimonies and Pastor Tanya bringing the main message- A Call for the Willing Woman. Bishop Darrell led a men’s conference on Tuesday afternoon on the Power of God to Bring Us to His Perfection and Unity. A combined men and women’s conference was held on Wednesday reinforcing the previous themes. Thursday evening several gathered for a revival meeting.
During the afternoons, Sister Kori and translator Henry ministered to the children who gathered on the hill outside the conference center after school. Several other opportunities to gather, teach, and fellowship occurred throughout the week.
The gospel spreads across Haiti
By the power of God Almighty
The Word is preached throughout the land
We are thankful to be a part- our small band
Kori, Tanya, Darrell
Brenda, Pat and Dale
Some taught Jesus to the youngster
Others had teachings for those oldster
From Evansville, Hartford and Pittsboro
We praise the Creator along with rooster, dog and burro
Let each one raise their voice
To the Lord of Lords who gives us choice
To know Him and His Son for eternal life
Or continue in our sin and strife
Haitian, American or other alien
We can all be forgiven
