HFCM President, Meschac St Amour and 5 local leaders and pastors attended a spirit filled three-day Pastor’s Conference in Mare Rouge, Nord-Ouest, Haiti in August. The theme of the conference was ‘Unity.’ The attendees participated in interactive group sessions that challenged each person to rely on God. They also learned to strive for self-reliance in making ends meet and not wait for outside help to always be the life saver. HFCM looks forward to working more with the faith leaders to bring this powerful message to the La Jeune , La Victoire , Coupeal and Pignon, Haiti areas.
Empowering and educating pastors and lay leaders so that they have the skills and the tools to improve the conditions in the churches, schools, communities and the entire country is one Habitat's main goals. Beliefs lead to values, and values are demonstrated through Action and Faith. At Habitat For Children Ministries, we want to help strengthen the belief in Jesus Christ so that peoples' values are in line with what the Word of God teaches us.
Many people do not have a proper understanding of obedience. On the one hand, some think they can earn eternal life by their deeds. They fail to understand that salvation is God’s undeserved gift to us.
Gayle Whitlach- Carlucci of Treasure Coast Missions Coalition, has been conducting teacher training with educators from three schools in La Jeune, Haiti. The teachers enjoy learning the importance of gross and fine motor skills, circadian rhythms, and communication skills. Play Doh, flash cards, rubber balls and bats are used as training tools for the teachers. Gayle has been a faithful partner with HFCM since 2016. She visits Haiti two to three times a year to instruct the teachers and spend time with the youth. We are so grateful for the time she lends to the mission and we can see the positive change that it is making with the children!
“I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.”
(2 Timothy 4:1-2)
