A letter from your Sister Church

From: Picot Baptist Church

To: Trinity Bible Church

I am very happy to share with you some information about our family, church and activities. We are doing well here by the grace of the Lord. My wife who was very sick is doing better now, but she still needs your prayer. The church is working well too; the Christians always come to church to worship. We always have four services each week. Sunday morning we have the worship service, evangelism service on Sunday night, and prayer service on Tuesday night, and Bible study every Thursday.  We have a Caleb group which are the men in the church,.  They meet every Friday from 4 pm to 5 pm, and we also have the woman group that meet every Saturday morning from 8 am to 9:30 am, we have the youth group that meet every Sunday afternoon. We have one more choir in the church; it has 30 people and they meet every Saturday.

This year we did not have a good start with the school because we did face two big Hurricanes “Dean” and “Noel”.   The Christians lost their animals, their livestock and the rain damaged their houses.  Because of those problems they could not send their kids to school this year. We have only 269 students this year and last year we had 400 students.  That is a big difference.

This year we had three conventions for the members.  We had one in Picot, one in Laroche and the last one we had it in Les Rois. I want to inform you that my oldest daughter is going to get married on December 28th, 2007 and she is going to marry a pastor’s son name Obed Jean Pierre. Now in our church, we are out of electricity because the company that used to provide energy in our area has some problems with their materials.  So our church has no electricity.  Please pray for us so that we can buy a generator for the church. And finally we had two members Desino and Mrs. Fleurimon that were paralyzed who died last month.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in 2008.

Pastor Calixte Dorval
