The Singing Cross
Categories: Uncategorized @en
At Easter, we had four evenings of evangelism with The Singing Cross. Our church’s choir performed it. In the weeks preceding the concert, we gave out 10,000 tickets in twenty different schools and to our youth for them to invite their families and friends.
More than 3,000 people came to the presentations and many gave their lives to the Lord.
A drama introduced the choir.
We had a presentation for the children.
A team from Barrie and Sudbury in Ontario came to work with us for a week. On Sunday morning, they did a drama to show that our hearts passed from purple to white when we gave our lives to the Lord.
Dot and the team ladies gave a course on how to make jewelry.
The girls took part in the course with great interest. They surprised us by their ability and creativity. The day after we took that picture, the class doubled in size. Unfortunately, we were unable to take more than twenty at a time.
We had a one-week soccer tournament for the 12 to 16 years old. Soccer is the national sport in Haiti. They so love Brazil that when the Brazilian team wins, they scream, they dance and they shoot in the air.
Francine Pagé from Longueuil, Quebec spent three weeks with us. She met all of our school teachers one by one to give them advice. She took a look at the tests the children did and at the correction that was made. She does a great job. She has been a school administrator for several years.
A registered electrician from Barrie, Ontario, solved some of our electricity problems.
The final parging of our building has been done. The inside walls and most of the outside walls are finished. Gill, from Authentic Haiti, did a wonderful job. It looks so great and we are so thankful. All we need to do now is to paint the walls. The picture shows our temporary cafeteria. The pool of light on the top of the picture gives on the sanctuary.
It is hard for us to imagine that one day, we will leave Haiti and that we will be confined to a small apartment far away from the Haitian children. We live in Haiti and our lives are for Haiti. We love going back to Canada to visit with our families and friends. We love feeling the warm spring wind on our faces and the fall freshness. Walking in the streets in Canada brings back lots of memories. We also have lots of memories in Haiti. But we do not live in the past and for the past but for the future. Our future is bright. No more disease, no more tears, no more death. I do not know if we will one day definitely leave Haiti, perhaps only if we have to.
