Port-au-Prince, Haiti


In its latest weekly update, the Living Church of God had the following:

French-Caribbean Update

Tomorrow’s World Special Presentation in Haiti: On Saturday, November 19, a TWSP was held in Gonaives, in the northwestern part of Haiti. The presentation by Dr. Wilner Pierre was held at the Heberson Paradise Hotel. Much preparation and planning was needed to reserve a conference room large enough to accommodate at least 200 people. Mr. Jove Jean-Pierre, a deacon in the Pétion-Ville (Port-au-Prince) congregation, and Mr. Gary Blanc accompanied Dr. Wilner Pierre to meet the new group. One hundred and ninety people attended the event. Once the presentation ended, everyone stayed around to fellowship and enjoy refreshments. It was a wonderful experience to see so many people eager to learn about God’s Way of life. The brethren in the Pétion-Ville congregation, affectionately known as the “faithful little flock who survived the earthquake,” will soon be able to fellowship with new brothers and sisters in Christ.

New Prospects in Haiti: A group of more than 200 people in the city of Gonaives have been studying and reading the Church’s literature online, listening to recorded messages and keeping the Sabbath. Mr. Obed Cadestin of Gonaives first met with Dr. Pierre last July to tell him about this group (never a part of the Worldwide Church of God) that is interested in learning more about the Holy Days and God’s Way of life. They have expressed how much they are looking forward to being a part of the Living Church of God. Sermons by Dr. Pierre will begin with subjects that will help them build a strong foundation, for example: Tithing; God’s Holy Days; God’s True Church; Bible Prophecy; Marriage and the Family; the Ten Commandments; Prayer and Fasting; and Trusting God When We Need to be Anointed. These are topics the group would like to know more about.

Radio Broadcast in Haiti: One year ago, a new radio station began playing Mr. Apartian’s broadcast once a week, according to the contract. Dr. Pierre used local funds to pay the monthly fee to keep the broadcast on the air until the contract expired. After reviewing the new contract for this year, the owner of the station heard the broadcast and decided that he would now like to air it twice a day, six days a week, for the exact same price. What a tremendous blessing! We are receiving at least 30 calls a month. We now have five new prospective members attending services in Port-au-Prince as a result.

Martinique Spokesman Club and Advanced Leadership Training and Visit to Guadeloupe: Dr. and Mrs. Pierre will be visiting the brethren in Martinique this month to begin Spokesman Club and also to implement the Advanced Leadership Training Program for prospective Church leaders. A new family, previously in the Worldwide Church of God, will also be attending services in Martinique for the first time! Dr. and Mrs. Pierre are scheduled to visit the brethren in Guadeloupe in December as well. There are now eight people attending services in this French island!—Wilner Pierre

A “TWSP” is a Tomorrow’s World Special Presentation which is essentially a type of in-person evangelistic campaign that generally invites people who are believed to have interest in the truth of God to attend.

Jesus taught:

14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.  (Matthew 24:14)

19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.  (Matthew 28:19-20)

LCG is trying to fulfill the Great Commission wherever possible, including the French-Caribbean region of the world.

Armstrong expect from evangelists?
