Pastor Paul and Anncesse Zamor of Gros-Morne, Haiti, were surprised at the Southern Florida District annual Mission Convention in Palm City, Florida, with a gift of a mint-condition 2006 Toyota full-cab pickup truck.
The Southern Florida District has partnered with Pastor Zamor and his church and school in Gros-Morne, Haiti for nearly three years. In addition to serving as pastor of the largest church in the area of a quarter-million people, Pastor Zamor is the Superintendent of the Upper Artibonite District, about 100 miles north of Port-au-Prince.
After working with Pastor Zamor for nearly three years, we realized he had no way of visiting the nearly 40 churches on his district other than by walking or motorcycle taxi, said Dr. David Nixon, Superintendent of the Southern Florida District. Our District leadership dreamed big for a full-cab pickup truck that would enable Pastor Zamor to not only visit his churches, but so he could also provide transportation for his fellow pastors too.
Word was spread through Southern Florida about the desire to find a truck for the Zamors. Dr. Nixon said, An unbelievable deal came through that enabled us to purchase a perfect pickup truck valued at $18,000 for just $10,000 that had low mileage and was in great condition. The Avon Park Church purchased new heavy-duty tires for the truck.
The Southern Florida District Nazarene Missions International Council, flew the Zamors from Haiti to Southern Florida to celebrate with them all of the accomplishments over the past three years. The district raised $15,000 for the truck purchase, shipping and custom charges.
At the Friday evening NMI Convention service, District President, Dennis Moore told the amazing life story of Paul and Annecesse Zamor. At the close of the service and as a surprise to the Zamors, the convention attendees watched on a large screen television as Dr. Nixon, Work & Witness Coordinator Roy Shuck and Haitian Lead Coordinator Pascal Permis escorted them outdoors to where the truck was parked. There they presented the Zamors with the keys to the pickup. All of the convention then celebrated with the Zamors at an outdoor reception near where the truck was parked.
Since the first visit by Southern Florida leaders to the Gros-Morne, Haiti, church in 2011 the following has been accomplished:
- $150,000 was provided to complete a 2,000-seat sanctuary, dedicated by General Superintendent Jesse Middendorf in January 2013.
- $60,000 was provided by Nazarene Compassionate Ministries to repair the roof to the school that was destroyed in the 2010 Haiti earthquake.
- $13,000 was provided to build and equip the only state-of-the-art computer laboratory in the entire city.
- $10,000 was contributed to build new desks for the school.
- $9,000 was contributed to scholarships for students attending the church school.
- Approximately $20,000 worth of shoes and socks were contributed and shipped to Gros-Morne to provide a new pair for each student enrolled in the school.
- $1,500 was contributed to drilling a clean water well on the church campus.
Characteristic of the Zamors, on the Friday evening following the gift of the pick-up truck from the Southern Florida people, they stayed up the entire night praying for the people of Southern Florida, the Church of the Nazarene and their great gratitude for Gods blessings on them.
