Seminary meeting in Thoman.

Missionary Miguel Rubén Guante presented a teaching on hell to nine pastors and eight church leaders attending our monthly seminary Saturday in Thoman. The lesson was written by Climbing For Christ spiritual coordinator Jordan Rowley, who is based in Rochester, NY, USA. Jordan has been on two missions to Haiti, including this year’s Evangelic Expedition shortly after he joined C4C’s staff.

“I think that Hell is a topic that is not taught enough in most churches,” Jordan said. “The Church needs to know what we have been saved from, and what we are called to help save others from!”

Miguel thought the teaching was “so good and (an) extraordinary instruction for pastors and leaders” that he asked to split this topic between October and November. In December, the instruction will be on heaven.

Pastors were to preach about hell in their churches after attending the seminary – “to make sure they are calling the people to choose the good way and avoid the hell,” Miguel said.

On Sunday, Malasi reported having 112 people in worship, while Jimani had 86 people gather and Thoman had 75.

“The (seminary) subject was very good, but not too many people,” said Miguel, who blamed poor attendance on cholera outbreaks in some areas.

A cholera outbreak began in Haiti in October 2010 and was blamed on the January 2010 earthquake. Cholera had not been documented in Haiti for decades before that. The original outbreak was confined to Port-au-Prince, but has since been spreading to rural areas. People become infected by ingesting contaminated food or water.

“From Gentilhomme to Foret des Pins and Gwo Cheval many people die,” Miguel reported on Oct. 14. “The Gentilhomme church had 11 people in the hospital.”

In addition to dealing with ongoing physical health crisis and trying to improve training for pastors and church leaders in the monthly seminary, Climbing For Christ continues to provide school supplies. More supplies were delivered to Thoman on Saturday.

Crayons, chalk, and paper were among supplies provided to teachers and students.
