HAITIAN CREOLE MINISTRY LAUNCHED
We are so happy to announce that God has opened the door for us to launch a Haitian ministry in Barrio Nuevo. After prayer and speaking to Pastor Wilfrido from Santo Domingo, he has connected us with Pastor Smith. His church is approximately 20 minutes away from Barrio Nuevo. However, he has a passion to reach his people. Therefore, every Sunday afternoon, Kelvis shuttles a core group from Pastor Smith’s to Barrio Nuevo. It has been amazing to see in just 4 weeks, the attendance is very strong, with professions of faith. One family who converted to Christ is Wilbur and his wife. Wilbur has worked on every phase of our construction over the past 2 years. Finally, we have a service that is ministering to him in his heart language. We are planning our next baptism service in May.
LOUISIANA BAPTIST UNIVERSITY:
I have just completed teaching a 12-week on-line missions class through the e-campus of Louisiana Baptist University. The class consisted of 5, that are pursuing degrees. The class received positive feedback as each student gained a greater understanding of the Great Commission. We utilized the excellent work of Marven Newell’s, Commissioned: What Jesus Wants You to Know As You Go. From Church Smart Resources. I will also be teaching a workshop and preaching to the students at LBU on May 7-8. Please pray that God will work in the lives of the students.
PRAY FOR THE FAMILY OF DONNIE DAVIS:
My very good friend Donnie who was only 53 years old, passed away in his sleep last week. He was a very faithful prayer and financial partner to our ministry. Please pray for his sweet wife, Leasa and their family. A memorial fund has been established through our ministry to honor his passion to help the people of the Dominican Republic. He will be sorely missed.
TRIP TO NORTH CAROLINA:
In the month of March, Tami and I drove from Dallas, Texas to see Pastor Allen and Elaine Davis, and Tom and Dora Hill. We are so thankful for their role in our ministry.
May God continue to bless you for staying up to date with our ministry! Thank you!
Earl and Tami Hammons
