Dear Harvest Supporter,
“And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. [Hebrews 13:16 NIV]
It has taken me almost two weeks to process all that happened at the “Global Outreach Missions Conference” last month at Wings Of Faith Fellowship, my home church. I left Ocala right after participating in the Conference and was in Haiti for eight days. I want to share with you just one of the many blessings. On the last night someone handed me an envelope with the following written on it. “The Lord told me to empty my wallet and give the funds to you”. I can tell you that the amount of money was substantial. Praise the Lord!
My time in Haiti was a great blessing to me. I traveled from North Western Haiti (Gonaives) all the way to South Haiti (Les Cayes), and back to Port-au-Prince. I was able to spend time with all of the projects and schools supported by Harvest as well as a few new projects.
One of the blessings for me was that after working in Haiti for over 25 years I was able to see some of the “fruit” that has grown from the “seed” that we planted so very long ago. Children that attended schools that many of you have supported over the years are now grown men and women. The ones I met with are Pastors of churches or ministry directors. One of them is a doctor in Dallas, Texas. It was very encouraging to me personally.
All of you are aware of the unbelievable September that we have just finished. Hurricane Harvey devastated Barbuda and Houston, Texas; Hurricane Irma devastated Key West, Ft. Myers, and Jacksonville, Florida; and Hurricane Maria totally destroyed Dominica and Puerto Rico. In the aftermath of these disasters, I have found myself conflicted on where we need to help. Due to the need in all of the above countries, I have changed our “Buckets of Love” from a specific area to “Buckets of Love for Hurricane Relief”. If you feel led to support our relief efforts complete the enclosed flyer.
A reminder for those of you in Florida, mark your calendars for February 22, 2018. That is the date of our “Have a Heart for Harvest” annual banquet. This year Dr. Gerry Gallimore will be our guest speaker as we focus on Jamaica.
In closing there is so much more that I want to share with you but I am out of space. Thank you for your continued prayerful and financial support for all our missionaries in the field. Please pray for us. Remember the need is great, the time is short, and Jesus is coming soon!
God bless you,
