Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus.
Bonjou! Mwen salye tout moun nan nom Senyè Jezi.
The Lord has achieved a great deal in the last year, here in Grand Goâve.
Bondye te fe anpil bon bagay ane ki pot pase ya nan Gran Gwav.
The first six classrooms of our School are being used both by Siloë and by another schooling program in the afternoons. It is always a joy to see and hear the youth in school. It is the development of the children that is fundamental to the progress of this community and this school is a shining example of what can be achieved with the love of our Lord.
Premyè man gen ses sal nan lekòl la ki daja itilze pou Siloë et pou lòt lekòl nan aprè midi tou. Se toujou yon jwa pou wè, et tande tout jen lekòl la, sa se yon devlopmon pou tou timoun ki nan fondamantal, li se yon pogrè pou kominote ya, lekòl la ap rete yon egzamp pou tou sa mou ta vle fè avèk lan mou nan non Segnè à.
In the past year we have had in excess of 25 teams that offered construction, medical and VBS to this community. Each team has been unique and we have been blessed with what they were all able to offer to our community. Many of the teams have felt that they have been truly blessed more by the Lord than anything that they have offered this community. The Sunday worship has been a highlight of the week, it is a testimony to the genuine nature of our weekly worship service, here at Temple Baptist church. Even though there is a language barrier we are always able to worship, praise and prayer to our Lord – He understands us all.
Ane pase nou te gen yen vent sank ekip kite ofri yo pou fè konstuktyon, Clinik, et pale timoun yo de la bib ekip yo te vini youn, pa youn, nou te beni avèk tout sa yo te pote ofri kominote ya, anpil nan ekip yo te santi yo beni anpil pou tout bagay Segnè ya te ede yo bay kominote a sèvis dimanch yo te briye sa se yon te miv anyaj ki vreman sensè pou tout sevis kite fè chak dimanch nan legliz Temple Baptiste malgre gen yen problem lang ki mete banyè men nou te toujou chante, loure epi priye Segnè a ansanm paske Segnè a li konprann tout lang.
Before I arrived in July, all the teams, and the staff, lived in tents and I believe that both Tim Brendle and Tori Wentz, our first registered nurse, both spent in excess of 90 consecutive nights in their tent accommodation. We now have both a staff house and a volunteer house; we offer tremendous thanks to Tim Brendle for that.
Avon mwen te vini an jiyè, tout ekip yo, tout Staff se ten nan tant yo te ye, et mui en kwè sa, nou gen de moun pa examp Pastè Tim et Madmwazel Tori kòm premyè mis nou te genyen kite annegistre, yo tou lè de kòm examp pase envison katreven dis jou len dèyè lòt anba tant, kounya, gras-a-Dieu, nou yon kay pou Staff et yon kay pou volontè yo domi, nou voye yon gran remesiman bay Pastè Tim pou sa.
Brenda and I have the title of Coordinators, however, without the inclusion of all the people that work with us especially Moise, the Project Coordinator, Jeanson, the volunteer Coordinator and Jenny our current Registered Nurse, the Lord would not have achieved as much as we have, together.
Madam Michael avèk mwen se a la tèt kòdinatyon an men, nou deyò de tout moun ki enkli ki ap travay espesyal avèk Moise, nap site kèk nan kòdinatyon. Jeanson, ki ansanm avèk volonte yo et mise aktyel nou kise madmwazel Jenny et nou konen Segnè ya pap acheve, tout bagay nou genyen ansanm yo.
We joined the team after three or four fellow coordinators: Herb Rogers, Scott Hunter, Gene Gentry and, of course, Pastor Tim Brendle.
Avon nou te rive bo isit la de gen yen twa ou kat kodinate ki te la avan nou, tankou, Herb Rogers, Scott Hunter, Gene Gentry et Paste Tim Brendle ke tou moun preske konen.
We have continued working on the school construction, assistance with the Self Help Groups, encouraging the implementation of the Community Health Evangelism (CHE) program and the short term mission trip teams. We have been slowly working towards a water program that includes both the physical well drilling and education. We have only just touched the edge of what is possible; we learn all the time about how things are done and how things are not done. Last year we were able to sink three wells for local communities and this year we have linked up again with Edge Ministries for pump education, and we are hoping to link up with Living Water, shortly, to partner with them in their water ministry.
Nou ap kontinye travay nan konstruktyon lekol la, avèk tout asistan ki ofri tet yo kòrm gwoup, n ap encourage tout men dev ki nan evangelis kominote santé (EKS). Ki ap travay pou gwoup yo kapab antre, anko mou te travay tou dousman pou pogram dlo a te inkli nou travay nan ale bagay tiyo epi edikatyon, nou te silman touché yon bo de sa ki te posib yo, nou apranm detanzantan kòman pou bagay yo fini, kòman pou yo pa fini, ane pase nou te disponib pou fouye twa pi nan kominote a, ane sa nou pral konekte anko avèk “Edge Ministries”ki ap travay pou afé ponp, nou espere konekte pou yon ti kout tan avèk “living water” ki se yon konpayé et nou pap bliye pat ne nou ministry pou dlo.
There is so much that we can point at that is not working but we should draw our strength from the positive things that the Lord has done through this community. We live in a loving community and we continue to greatly value its support and encouragement. Brenda and I continue to look forward to how the Lord will use us within this Haitian community for his glory.
Gen anpil bagay nou kabap pwente ki pa bon men nou dwe desirne kouray nou, et tout bagay positif ke Sengne a fe avèk noun an kominote a, nou abite nan kominote a, nan remmen kominotea, et nap kontinye pou nou salye, vale, sipo et li bon pou nou ankouraje tout Madamn Micheal avèk mwen ki ap kontinye rete patyan de ki jan Sengne a pral itilze nou anndan kominote ayisyen an glwa pou Bondye.
