JUNE 2017

It is so fun to hear what the Vine Ministry Student Sponsorship graduates are doing now. Some have graduated nursing school. Another graduated secretary school. The secretary of Vine Evangelical Baptist Church was one of the first students supported by you.  Vine Ministry Supporters have impacted education in Haiti for over 26 years. Last year 155 students had the opportunity to attend school.

As can be seen from the chart, we have a very good start to meeting our goal from last year. In May our supporters have committed to sending 74 students to school again for another year of education. 

If you would like to be part of this project, please drop us a line and let us know you would like to support a student this year. One year is $360. The Deadline is August 1st.

Sunday April 30 Assoc. Pastor Daniel took the Central Choir from Vine Evangelical Baptist Church to his hometown of Hinche.

Pastor Daniel preached and Central Choir sang at Maranatha Baptist of Hinche. Later in the evening they ministered in Hinche First Baptist Church. This is where Pastor Daniel grew up and had his first experiences as Youth Leader and Choir Director.

Pastor Daniel also had the privilege of visiting and preaching in a church in a village called Maissade, about 260 miles from Port-au-Prince. To get there he had to cross a large river. Pastor hired a young man to carry him on his back to cross the river. He did such a good job of carrying Daniel that he paid him double the wage.

Please note several prayer requests:

Haiti’s economy. Inflation rate is 12%. 1 Haitian Gourde is now worth 1.496 cents.

Hadassa is Pastor Daniel’s 6 year old daughter. She is disabled and does not stand, walk, see or talk. She is becoming more difficult to care for.

Please pray for continued improvement for Marie St Amour, Pastor Joel’s wife who received a heart transplant last October.

Please join Vine Evangelical Baptist Church in praying for the upcoming Bible Conference June 25 –July 9. This is their 25th year celebration with many former members coming to take part in the celebration.

Thank you for your prayers and generous support to this ministry,
