A letter from your Sister Church

From:     The Committee of Dame-Marie Baptist Church

To:          To Pastor Guy Glass and Calvary Church

Object:    Information

Dear Pastor Glass,

May the grace and the peace of God be with you!  My family and I have a pleasure to greet you in the precious name and savior Jesus Christ.

We were very happy to receive you here in Dame-Marie 6 months ago.  It was for us a great privilege to meet some members from Calvary Baptist Church in New Jersey as our sister church here in Dame-Marie. I wish that everything will continue to work well for the glory of God. Praise the Lord; we are doing fine here in Dame-Marie spiritually. At the beginning of December we started our worship service at 6 a.m. and finish at 9 a.m.  We had a nice convention for the whole district at the end of the year for four days. It was a great success where 20 members were baptized. We also had a nice party with 250 people for those who attended the Sunday school. We have a big choir with eighty (80) people now in our church and we wish to participate in the convention that the MEBLH mission organizes every April.

In the name of all the Deacons and members of Dame-Marie Baptist church, in the name of my wife and my children, we join our voice together to wish you a happy new year of 2008. We hope to have you again this year in Dame-Marie, your sister church.

We love you all and May God in his power send his blessing to you and Calvary Church.

A letter from your Sister Church

January 2008

From:     Ducis Baptist Church, Haiti

To:          Village church of Bartlett

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

We are very happy to write this letter to you just to give you some information about our church here in Ducis and also we want to take this advantage to wish you a happy new year of 2008. We are very happy for the good communion that God our Father established among us and allowed us to live as brothers and sisters for the glory of his ministry. This is by the same love he left behind his kingdom and came to the earth to die for us. That’s really a great love, isn’t it?

We say thank you to God the way he did take care of us for the year of 2007, even though we had insecurity problems in our country but God has take care of each family in our church. For this reason, from December 16th to December 31st of 2007 we had a nice prayer service in our church in Ducis where all the members in the church met together to praise him and thank him for his mercy. We had different speakers who would preach for us from Exodus 33:13.

Our purpose for this new year is to have more people baptized, teach more people the words of God and create a new strategy where all the family in the church can know the power of God better and seek more people for his kingdom.

This year again we want to start working with the plan we had a long time ago called “AWANA”.  We have already met with the responsible people and  they have approved it. I hope next time when I write I will give you more explanations about it.

We are praying for you everyday and we hope that you are going to do the same thing for us.

Once again I want to wish you all a happy new year of 2008 and May God send his blessing upon your church.

Your brother,

Pastor Anthony Moise

A letter from your Sister Church

From: Baradere Baptist Church

To: Creekside Church

I greet you in the name of our Savior Jesus Christ! How are your different activities doing?  I believe that everything is doing well for you.

Here in Baradere, we are doing well by the grace of God. God always stays beside us to protect us. We say thank you very much for the money you sent for the Christians here that were facing a difficult time after the hurricanes. 

For our spiritual activities, everything is working well now.  We have good worship services on Sunday morning, evangelism services Sunday night, Prayer services Tuesday night and Bible study every Thursday nights. We also have a meeting with the deacons; we have 9 classes for Sunday school. This year we have a meeting with each different group in the church to make an overall plan for the different projects we wish to realize.

This year we are going to have our Carnival (Mardi Gras) retreat for the youth in Gran Boukan’s area where 150 youth are going to participate. We want you please to pray for us so that God can give us a good time there because we are going to have evangelism service every evening. Please pray for me because in January 30th, I am going to have surgery on my left eye.

I send my greetings to all the members in Creekside Church, especially to Pastor Richard and his wife, Brother Wes and Brother Don. We are praying God for you and asking him to bless you and your church.

Pastor Leon Bonhomme
