Dear Family and Friends of Soulwinning Missions Association,
This has been the greatest year for SWM ever!! We have had our weekly Bible study every Saturday morning from 8AM to 9:30 AM, where we have been studying the Book of Revelation! The Lord has blessed us with opening our minds and hearts to His Word. In September 2018, we started the Book of Revelation for the second time! What a blessing this Book is as it reveals history of the past, speaks to us about the present and prepares us for the prophetic future!
We have continued to pray every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 6:00 a.m. to 6:30 a.m. What a blessing this has been for our family and friends to be covered by the blood of Jesus through prayer. This is our third year.
We were in Mirebalais, Haiti, February 11-15th for a Conference to Equip the Saints for the Last Days. We were blessed with the opportunity to teach about 150 young evangelists on fire for the Lord, Jesus Christ. In addition, we provided housing, from April 2018 to April 2019, for a displaced pregnant young woman (in Mirebalais) with 3 children.
We participated in a Women’s’ Conference in Cite du Soleil, Haiti in June 20-22, 2018 at the Good Samaritan Church. What a wonderful time with these wonderful women!! One result of the Women’s Conference was starting the Sewing School on the grounds of Good Samaritan Church/Foundation. Seventeen women have been attending school faithfully in the hopes of gaining the skills necessary to take care of themselves and their families.
We were able to provide 100 Old and New Testament Bibles to the Evangelist in Mirebalais and 100 New Testament Bibles to the Women in Cite Soleil. Both the Women’s Conference in Cite du Soleil and the Evangelists in Mirebalais received 10,000 tracts for distribution.
Please don’t forget the Derisma Family which we have provided an educational opportunity to the (now 4) school aged children for the past 3 years. They are doing well and Dieulene still wants to be an airline pilot!
We were able to give clothes to Sofika, a 6 year old girl who was left with her unemployed grandmother who was not able to clothe her. Special blessings to the children in the Foundation which is an orphanage supported by Pastor Vincent and Good Samaritan Church. In addition to the shoes that were provided in June, we also contributed underwear and games for Christmas. Other Christmas gifts given as needed.
We supported the Christmas party sponsored by Good Samaritan Foundation which was a great success and blessing for 500 children of this area which represent some of the poorest children in the Western hemisphere.
So you see, we have been very blessed and able to be a blessing to many. We would like to do so much more. Therefore, we have just finished putting together our first fundraiser for 2019! We will be launching a website featuring Haitian artwork and metalwork by native Haitian artists. Proceeds will be used to build a new orphanage for the children. We look forward and ask for your immediate support.
This message would not be complete without thanking each one of you for your prayers and financial support! We thank you and look forward to doing much more in 2019!
