The intent of this partnership is first and foremost to announce the Gospel to the Nation of Haiti. The initial scope will be focused on working with Pastor Odvald and the association of churches he serves as the Senior Pastor of Nouvelle Eglise Evangelique Baptiste Church in Croix-des-Bouquet. This includes currently the work in six churches and two church plants that have the potential to reach 1.5 million people among this association of churches.
The scope of the partnership will include but not limited to Prayer Walking Teams, Medical Clinics, Bible Clubs, Church Planting, Orphanage Support, School Support, Evangelistic Crusades and Building Projects.
The Louisiana Baptist/Haiti Partnership Missions will begin and continue through PrayGr8Commission. This is an opportunity to Pray Daily for Christ to give you daily opportunities to share the Gospel and make Disciples where you live while also praying for the work in Haiti.
The long-term goal is to assist these churches by:
Providing Prayer Support
Establish a permanent Medical Clinic at each church
Provide sponsorship to staff a nurse five days a week for 8 hours a day (discovery cost)
Provide assistance with church planting among this association of churches
Provide teams to conduct Backyard Bible Clubs
Provide for school support when appropriate
Provide Construction teams to build churches, Medical Clinics, Schools and an Orphanage
Provide assistance with the establishment of at least one orphanage and sponsorship of children
Provide Pastors to conduct Crusades at least twice a year
The target group for Mission Teams on the field is freshman in High School and above!
Encourage Children’s Ministries among the Louisiana Baptist Churches to adopt pastors and churches to support through prayer, offering and at least once a year conduct campaigns to raise supplies for churches, schools and eventually an orphanage
You might say I am unable to go because of many reasons and if that is the case you are the prime candidate:
To start prayer teams for Haiti
To financially support the work
To serve as an area Representative to secure donations for children’s school supplies
To serve as an area Representative for securing Medical Supplies
To serve however God leads you to support this work
With your gift of money, time and service you are meeting the physical, spiritual, educational needs of babies, children, youth and adults in one of the world’s poorest nations. In addition to meeting these most basic needs, you are helping foster a new generation of Christian Leaders for Haiti.
