Hello from Haiti:

 

This has been an exciting week for us.  We took 16 children ages 12 to 16 to Quisqueya Chapel for baptism.  Ricardo accepted Jesus but was not able to go for baptism.  Some were in the orphanage and some are students in the school.  All are now Children of God.  Praise the LORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Work on the first wing has halted until we have more funding.  Please pray for the construction.  I really want to be able to get all the children back to school and in a classroom by the time school starts August 23rd.

 

Steve will be returning tomorrow (Friday) to work on the back wing.  We are being presented with funding specifically for this project from Mission of Tears in Canada.  This will help greatly.  Praise the LORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

We went to Arcahaie on Monday with 9 people to see Dr. Kerry, an American eye doctor.  Some, like Lorgens a child with very dry eyes, have eye problems needing medical attention.  Others like Djeanise are nearsighted and need glasses.    It was a great blessing to be able to get them help.  Praise the LORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

My summer schedule is quite vigorous.

About June 17th go to jacksonville, Florida

June 20th - Rome, Georgia

June 27th PM - Windsor Baptist Church, Gainesville, Florida

July 4th - Good Family Reunion - Garden City, Kansas

           My uncle is having a middle school named after him - Horace G. Good Middle School.   Yea!! Uncle Hoppy!

July 7th        Hutchinson, Kansas

July 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, daily activities - Williamsport, PA

July 13th - Medway Community Church, Medway, Mass.

July 22 - Must be back in Port-au-Prince before the 23rd

 

A young man named Ross will be here for 2 months in June & July.  I will be gone part of this time if possible.  Please keep Ross in prayer.  Jared plans to be here some of this time with a team from his church which will be a huge help to Ross.  I would like to also have a Christian teacher here to help keep the children and supervise 2 or 3 small classes of summer school.   Please keep all this in prayer.

 

Please pray for my stamina and health.  My lungs never seemed to totally recover from breathing in all the concrete dust in the earthquake.  I become fatigued very easily and there is so very much to do.

 

Also continue to pray for full time help here.  The ministry is growing and producing fruit.  We need the Lord of the Harvest to send full time workers into this field.  The Lord is calling people who need to respond.  It will be the hardest decision of their lives and result in the greatest joy and contentment.

 

Please keep Jared & Amanda in prayer as they make plans to come back full time.

Please keep Amy in prayer as she makes plans.

 

God bless you,

Sherrie

Prayer & Praises May 3, 2010



Hello from Shaky City:

We had another tremor today that chased everyone out of the building.  It was only a 4.4 and only lasted 1 second but it keeps everyone on edge.   Please pray for the tremors to stop.   Everyone is so afraid to be inside buildings.  Actually, I think the little tremors probably prevent big ones.
May God's will be done.  After feeling about 50 aftershocks, I would still rather be in an earthquake with Jesus than anywhere out of the will of God. 
I forgot to attach the picture of the truck with the taptap on back.
We took 21 teenagers to Quisqueya Chapel for church Sunday.  Praise the Lord!!!!!!!  Then Jared & Larry & Emily took them to the beach in the afternoon.  They had a wonderful time.  Praise the Lord!!!!!!  The truck has also hauled a lot of concrete and steel and wood.  Praise the Lord!!!!!!!  Everyone is so happy about the blue truck!!!! 
People have said, "How can we help?  What do you need?"  Well - I need people.  I need someone who can supervise construction.  Too many mistakes were made when I did not have a full time construction supervisor.  Jared will be leaving so I need Steve Dawson to return to Haiti.   You can help me by sending funding to Christian Light Foundation designated for Steve Dawson so he can come back.  Please keep Steve in prayer.
I also need other people.  I still need a full time school director, teachers for classrooms (in English), an office manager, a dietician/medical person, a librarian, etc.  There is never enough help.  Please pray for those the Lord is calling to this ministry
We got a new child in the orphanage today.  Rosemarline, our student, came to school in PreK as normal but no one picked her up.  After school, she showed us her little backpack of clothes that Mama packed for her.  The family is in desperate need. and Rosemarline is very skinny.  We sent the family food last Friday but did not want to take away their child.  Please pray for the people who lost jobs because of the earthquake.  They need new jobs.  Please continue to pray for Amanda and Jared Kostreva to come full time. 
Yahoo decided I wanted a different version of their email.  The new Yahoo is cumbersome - it takes more clicks to do the same thing.  It is driving me crazy hunting for buttons they moved or disguised and that now don't always work.   I did not choose it and don't know how to get back to the old kind.  Please pray for my patience. 
God bless you,
Sherrie
