New believers celebrate in Mare Pitre
Meet our new sister and brothers in Christ: Onie Jean, Meridroine Merissaint and Bocicot Wilson (photographed above, left to right). Haitian missionary Miguel Rubén Guante said “those three people repented (because of) the work of Christ in the life of Solina.” Solina, who died on Nov. 29, was the elderly woman counted among the first in the village of Mare Pitre to come to Christ.
Worship in Mare Pitre was full of joy, Miguel said. “People wanted to pass the night glorifying the name of God.”
A boy named Contis Sezer danced for the LORD (photo). He is the only surviving member of his family; 14 of his brothers have died. He is celebrating his life in Christ.
A woman named Mecene, who helped pay for the expenses of Solina’s funeral (C4C paid $160 to bury her), has asked to be baptized. This will happen for Mecene and others in January 2014.
“This lady had such a nice testimony,” Miguel said. “Her testimony encouraged people to come to Jesus.”
