- Life Stages
Our partnership with Haiti started after the earthquake in 2010. We have been sending teams to Haitian Christian Mission in Fonds Parisian for almost 10 years! Recently, however, we have been sending less and less teams. The main reason for this is the political unrest that has taken over their country. Our partners had to close their campus to mission teams for the rest of the year because of the violence and lack of resources. They are short on food, hospital supplies, gasoline, and even power. The government and the people of Haiti have been fighting since 2017, but it seems to have taken a toll for the worse more recently. You can still see wreckage from fires and riots, bullet holes in buildings, cars and people. But we serve a God of love, justice and mercy! We need to pray for the people of Haiti. They need peace between the people and the government. We also need to be praying for our partners at HCM. They need prayers of safety, resources and strength. We hope to be able to send teams down there again to help minister to the people who have lost hope.
Bethel's Global Outreach is excited to be sending one of our families to be full-time missionaries in South Asia! They are going to a country where there isn't any freedom of religion so we are going to be keeping identity and location confidential.
Perhaps we take for granted the things in life that make us happy. In Baja, Mexico, a spoonful of peanut butter and a glass of milk is the highlight of a child's day. I learned a lot about what should make me happy and how I am using my resources.
A Bethel sent family is moving to India as full time missionaries. Here is an update on their transition.
