Greetings to all my brothers and sisters in the LORD.  I hope all is well with you.  When I left on the 31st of December, the plan was to pick up the certificate at the Minister’s cabinet and see the inspector who was handling our document.  When I arrived in Haiti, I had to make so many visits to the Minister’s office.  He was never there…week after week!  So instead we decided to go to the director of the department.  Thanks be to God, he received us with open arms.  He said that the Minister was out of the country on political trips.  The director said that the minute the Minister returned he would get the certificate for us.  Yesterday we were blessed.  The director called us to say he had the certificate ready for us.  We were so excited!
We thought that was the last step in order to open the bank account.  When we got to the director’s office, however, we were told that now I needed to write three letters:  1) thanking the department; 2) providing a document showing proof of my signature, and a “Love For Haiti” seal; 3) asking the department to give authorization to open a bank account 
because now Love For Haiti is a registered and functioning institution.  It seems like there is always one more thing!
I’m asking you, the congregation, to please pray for us deeply.  Pray for our LORD to remove barriers that keep coming every time we are moving forward in our attempt to purchase the land.  I thank God I left for Haiti at the right time so I could persistently go to that minister’s office and then to have met the director.  It’s all God’s timing and doing!  Now I’m waiting for them to call me to say that the bank account authorization has been approved.
Blessings and much love to you all,
Pastor Jacques
P.S.  Praise God!  The bank account has been approved and the account is open!  Now we are able to finalize the purchase of the land.  Please continue to pray that God’s will for our Kingdom Kids will be achieved, that He will keep the doors open for His “Love For Haiti” ministry.

Hello my brothers and sisters.  I’m sorry you have not heard from me for a while, but I have been going with the government flow in Haiti — experiencing chaos and many disturbing moments.  However, it is good for me just to know that all the promises and the obstacles that God showed me in a dream are here and still coming.  It’s because the ministry He has called me to is so significant that the task is so difficult.  I can be courageous because I know He is with me and He showed me what was coming regarding the registration of the ministry — the forces of darkness that intervene.  It’s part of my preparation to be a leader and an overseer.  It requires wisdom to know how to apply patience and how to wait on the LORD, for His goodness is always with us.
The Haiti government is not functional.  I discovered this the minute I put my feet on Haiti ground in July.  But by God’s grace we have accomplished a lot.  Every week there is some kind of uprising and manifestation against the government.  This then causes the government’s ability to function to fail.  So if I’m waiting two weeks for a document, it’s now going to take four weeks, causing stress and frustration.  And the corruption of money is rising.  In other words, a task does not get done until someone is paid under the table to do it.  More stress and frustration!
For the last month, we’ve been having a gasoline issue in Haiti.  There is no gas at the pumps.  You have to buy gas on the street — the black market.  Right now, a gallon starts at $5 and is going up.  I had to leave my car parked for ten days because of this gas situation.  The nation is tired and can’t take it anymore, so the country is now on lock down.
But on a positive note, God’s grace is on our side.  The ministry is registered!  The hold up now is applying for a Love For Haiti bank 
account.  The bank has asked for documents and I do my best to bring what they need, but then there is always another thing to do.  I am stressed and frustrated.  Right now, because of many bad politicians, the bank wants a document called The Right to Function as an Institution in Haiti.  The bank cannot open our account until we have that last document, which is in process.  It’s moving slowly.  I’ve been waiting for it for two weeks, and now every department in the country is locked down, so more time will go by.  But God is good and I will keep the faith.  It is God who sent me to Haiti to do His will, so I’m praying hard and my administration is praying hard, too.
Therefore, my brothers and my sisters, I’m asking for your prayer support that His will be done, and the gates of hell and darkness would not prevail, for the battle is already won.  I send my love to everyone.  I’m standing tall and strong for this task that I need to achieve by the Grace of God, or if anything else is on His hand.
Blessings and much love,
Pastor Jacques
P.S.  Our sister Mary’s situation is much better.  She is the elderly woman of faith in my administration staff who was diagnosed with cancer stage one.  Her surgery went well and she is back on her feet.  God’s grace is healing her.  I’m planning to meet with them this Saturday for a day of prayer.  Please pray that the Lord will open the way for me to go to Leogane.
P.S.2  I am returning to the States on October 5th and will remain there until we get the necessary documentation to continue with the purchase of the land.

Good evening my brothers and sisters.  How are you?  I hope all is well.  God is good!  I have news to post:
Last Sunday (2/24) my administration group and I enjoyed a great time with the Kingdom Kids.  It was a time of worship, adoration, recreation and fun.  It was also a time of sharing and having lunch together.  These kids are always looking for such times with them, because where they live, they have so little.  Most of them are orphans and need us to take them in to our LOVE FOR HAITI MINISTRY.
Berto (our lawyer) and I are working hard to have the ministry registered.  It’s taking a little longer than planned, but then, everything is done according to God’s will.  We are hoping to finish with the registration in two weeks.  Then we can start the process of purchasing the land.  Please keep us in deep prayer…for God to open all doors, so we can have a place for the Kingdom Kids.
Blessings and much love,
Pastor Jacques

February 12, 2019  Update from Haiti
Hello my brothers and sisters,
This is an update and a prayer request for me and the Bethel students and the missionary of Great Rock Church.  The guys of GRC have been stuck near the hotel by the Airport since Saturday.  I sent a text to Anthony, our Love for Haiti land donor, warning him and the others about the uprising in Haiti.  The country has been locked down since last Thursday.  Michelet, my brother, has not gone to work since then.  The people of Haiti want the president to leave the country.  They will not stop protesting until he is gone.  All roads are blocked, streets are on fire, a few people have died already.  Please keep us in deep prayer.  Now our paper work can not be done soon.  But God is good!  He showed all these things in a dream.  I’m strong, this is my calling.  Our Faith must be tested, for our Love for Haiti ministry is so big.  It is the goodness of God that gives me strength.
Blessings and much love,
Pastor Jacques

Haiti’s streets are on fire.

January 2019    Haiti Update
Greetings my brothers and sisters.
How are you?  I hope all is well.  Grace and Peace be with you all.
It has been a while since I left to go to Haiti to register the Love For Haiti ministry.  There have been many obstacles to complete this process because of the different documents that are needed.  Pastor Ron has collected and sent all the documents I need, notarized and validated by the Haiti Consulate in Boston.  Now I await their arrival so this process can be completed, thanks be to God!
The original plan was for me to be in Haiti for two months to do the registration and the purchasing of the land.  Already one month has gone by; only one month remains.  
Time is getting short.  The person donating the land is arriving here on February 9th.  On the 11th, we intend to process the purchase of the land.  I might run out of time to complete this task and may need to extend my time by a couple weeks.  
If I need more time here, I’m asking my brothers and sisters who support me to donate a little extra so this process can be completed.  I know God is good and I pray the finances needed for me to stay will be provided.
Blessings and much love!
Pastor Jacques

Good evening my brothers and sisters.  How are you?  I hope you are well.  Grace and peace be with you all.
I want to share with you some updates on our Love For Haiti ministry:
Our Bethel graduates and our administrative group in Haiti have done well to successfully complete the Inductive Bible Study course.  All the students took a turn to lead a session of the class and did a wonderful job thanks to their commitment to the Holy Spirit and their great understanding of what they were learning.

We were in the process of purchasing land in Haiti for the Kingdom Kids (our orphans).  A door opened to do this through Great Rock Church, but God has closed that door.  Instead, God is opening a new door for our ministry to still get land, but it’s being done His way.  The need for this land where we can build a home and provide for our orphans is great.  The children are growing and are so vulnerable.  They need protection, especially the young girls.  We are asking for a lot of prayers.  And we will be needing financial support for them as things start to take off.  Please keep this need in prayer.
My co-administrator in Haiti, Frere Antoine, is working very hard for the ministry, especially for the Kingdom Kids, getting all the paperwork done that the government requires.  He is also completing the paperwork that is required for the Love For Haiti ministry to be registered with the government.  And we now have a lawyer on board who is working for us also.  At the end of this year, I will be returning to Haiti to join Antoine and the lawyer as we seek to acquire the land.
I want to thank all my supporters who have stayed so faithful to God’s servant in Haiti.  Your prayers and financial support make it possible for me to travel to Haiti and allow this ministry to grow.

To my supporters, do not be dismayed that you aren’t serving in Haiti.  Remember, you may not be in the field but spiritually you are with me there.  In God’s eyes, you are a vital part of this ministry because of your prayers and financial support.  Please continue to financially support me as I follow God’s calling on my heart to serve Love For Haiti.  Please give as
God puts it on your heart.  The need in Haiti is great.
Blessings and much love to you all!
