Haiti’s waiting on the rain
Beans have been delivered to farmers in Malasi, teaching to pastors and church leaders at the monthly seminary in Thoman, and fertilizer to people in Gentilhomme. These were among the blessings of recent weeks in Haiti.
At the same time, our teacher from Thoman (Vixson) was buried, another teacher from Malasi (Emilien) recovered from illness, and a teacher from Gentilhomme (Mathuren) was arrested on the Dominican border. These were among the many challenges in recent weeks in Haiti.
In addition to teaching six pastors and 15 leaders from six villages at the March seminary, missionary Miguel Rubén Guante also was working on a budget for a new rain-catching basin for the church at Malasi (estimated cost US$5,500), worshiping with the church at Mare Pitre, and providing for the needs of many.
Delivering beans to Malasi.
“It was very joyful for the brothers and sisters of Malasi when I arrive with the beans,” Miguel said about a recent highlight of our ministry. “As you knew, all the land is cleaned waiting for beans and rain. They said as God sent the beans, He will send the rain too for them.”
Climbing For Christ was again able to raise what was needed to support the work (this month more than US$4,200) and we rejoice in the small victories that celebrate the triumph of Jesus Christ. As our Risen Savior told His disciples: “In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world” (John 6:33).

Praying during worship in the church at Mare Pitre on Sunday, March 24.
“We worshipped with about 35 people under the warm sun,” Miguel said about the church at Mare Pitre, where our temporary structure (a tarp) has been damaged. An estimated US$3,200 is needed to construct a better shelter from the elements.
