There will be no Senior High Fellowship next week because it is holy weed so come attend the Good Fridays services!

Also, we just received a letter from our compassion girl, Occius Marie Kechelove from Haiti and she writes:

Dear Friends,

I greet you in the precious name of our Savior and Lord Jesus. My name is Orelus Clermilus. I have been pastoring at my church and the Torbeck Child Development Center; which supports and cares for Occius Marie Kechelove, or the last 17 years. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your prayers, support, and love for Kechelove and our Center in Haiti. Our Center has been and is a valuable tool for development in the area of Mahot. It is a ay of evangelization and an instrument of social and economical transformation. The relationship developed by it with the members of the community and the various programs it implements in favor of children makes it is a very important institution in the community. Mahot is located in the first section of the town of Torbeck. The main economic activities of the area are farming, agriculture and fishing. However, the lack of economic resources and technical training to operate these sectors prevents people from taking full advantage of their work. Secondly, these challenges are compounded by the fact that Mahot is very vulnerable and exposed to climate hazards. Almost every year we are hit by a natural disaster, such as flooding, drought or hurricane. This causes enormous loss of flock and harvesting, no need to mention post-disaster epidemics like typhoid, cholera and the latest, Chikungunya. Facing a situation like this, many people fled the area to looking for a better life elsewehre. Others engage in excessive cutting of wood to make charcoal to feed their families. These behaviors, instead of easing the pain of the population, make the situation worse by causing very serious environmental problems. It is in this context that the Center’s support to the children and their families are important. Through the various programs that are implemented, young people have not only financial means to pay school fees and health care, but they also receive all sorts of training to enable them to become leaders, models, and agents of social and spiritual transformation. Clubs and classes are available for young people to enable them to exercise a profession for generating income. For example, the youth band of the Center started earning some money thanks to the music course they have attended at the Center. By different training that we organize for parents, they can plan their family life. They know better how to educate their children and how to set up small businesses etc. Thanks to all these works there has been a significant increase in the standard of living of the population and also the number of people who accepted Christ in the community. However; many challenges are still ahead, such as the renovation and rehabilitation of school facilities at the Center; the construction of a computer center; and the construction of a rehearsal room for the band. We remain convinced that our God will pour abundantly on you all His graces and blessings for your love and support of Kechelove and this program. Be assured that we will never cease to pray you and your family.

I thank you with all my heart.

May God Bless You!

In Christ,

Pastor Orelus Clermilus
