Your prayers for the team are sincerely appreciated.
The team has completed 4 days of working and witnessing in Gros-Morne, Haiti.
The crew continues rewiring the guest house – which actually consists of an older home (where most of our efforts are devoted) and a newer motel-type facility with 9 rooms in 3 stories. According to our “Master Electrician” Jim McLellan (Palm Beach Gardens Northlake Blvd.) the team has pulled (or installed about) 1,500 feet of romex wire and 350 feet of metal electrical conduit. If all goes well — we hope to throw the switch for the new system when we finish work tomorrow. It has been a LOT of work.
Clint Helzer (Bradenton First) has become our “Master Plumber”. We didn’t realize how much attention all the plumbing has needed. This facility has 9 bathroom, plus a full kitchen. Dr. Nixon, our District Superintendent, has had difficulty with his shower and toilet. Shown is Clint working on what we have affectionately been calling “King David’s Throne”. As of tonight — we still need more parts to get everything flowing properly. In the meantime, Dr. David has to use a bucket for flushing needs. All of the other restrooms and kitchen plumbing have been completely reworked.
Our “Master Chefs” have been (middle l to r) Wendy Moore (Lake Worth First), Rozalyn Williams (Louisiana NMI President) and Mary Shuck (Naples Faith Community). They have had a lot of great Haitian help in doing everything. They use a gas stove — and we have tried to deal with a poorly operating electrical refrigerator and a confounding gas refrigerator. As in any W&W project – you must always adapt. Speaking of food, attached is a “platter” of different vegetables we have received that have been locally grown. The ladies made homemade salsa today for our taco lunch.
Today some of our team began repainting the church day care center which is adjacent to our compound. Attached is a photo of the paint crew (l to r) Pastor Brett Massey (Port Charlotte), Tai Peachey (Olivet Nazarene University), Daniel Cupp (Palm Beach Garden Northlake Blvd.) and Len Turner (Port Charlotte). They also received help from the teachers and staff of the day care center. They are painting the exterior wall and adding new educational paintings to the wall.
The final photo is our view of Gros-Morne and some of the mountains beyond — from the third floor of the motel-type facility. It is a very beautiful view. The weather has been in the low 80’s during the day and cooling to the middle 70’s at night — but always with a nice breeze. We have had no rain — but honestly the region needs rain now. This is their dry season.
Dr. Nixon, Pastor Pascal Permis and Gros-Morne Pastor Paul Zamor traveled 2 hours to a new church under construction from Dr. Nixon’s Jesus Film trip a few weeks ago. On their way home they encountered a situation where there had been an vehicle accident. The driver of the vehicle was seriously injured when his arm was pinned for several hours. They transported him back to Gros-Morne and then paid for another vehicle to take him to a hospital in Gonaive. They were amazed how God’s timing allowed them to serve as Good Samaritans at the right place and the right time.
We are enjoying morning devotions with each other. We pray for you and our district family daily. We also sincerely appreciate your prayers for protection and means to witness to all our Haitian neighbors and friends.
Dennis Moore, District NM President
