We are going to Haiti on March 28th to April 5th, 2014, to be part of American Baptist Mission work at Cap Haitien, Haiti! Ten of us went in 2012 and had such an inspirational experience that not only did we make presentations to many of our Evergreen churches, but now many of us are going again! The Apostle Paul wrote to the Philippians, “I am confidant of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion…” (Philippians 1:6).
That is what this will be about – following up on the school for which we began building the foundation in Cap Haitian, and touching base with the persons with which we formed relationships. American Baptist International Ministries missionaries, Kihomi and Nzunga serve as a vital link between
International Ministries and the Haitian Baptist Convention. Nzunga teaches
theology at the Christian University of Northern Haiti, trains assistant professors
in teaching and writing books, administers a scholarship program, and visits and
preaches in churches. He also administers the "Kids for Kids" goat project that
provides needed school and personal supplies for children and university
students. Kihomi works with families in the areas of counseling, family planning,
and women's health issues. She also coordinates and advises the women's
association of the Haitian Baptist Convention, representing women of all
the Baptist denominations of Haiti at international conferences.
Nzunga has recently written of the hope for change in Haiti. After telling of improvements in the infrastructure of Haiti, school participation by children and how the mission’s students have been giving back to their communities, he writes, “Every day we are encouraged by what is going on.” This trip is about being part of the hope!
