WE ARE SO CLOSE!

$6830

NEEDED

FOR OUR
VEHICLE GOAL!
Top Left: Cite Soleil Malnutrition Clinic. Top Right Road to Cite Soleil Clinic Center Left: Road in Onaville to discipleship class. Center Right: Vehicle we would like to purchase Bottom: Discipleship in Onaville.

Funds for the new vehicle have been rolling in. We are just $6830 away from the $26,500 that we need to purchase this truck. All of that has been given since April 18th when we first presented the need to you. Many of you have responded and we can’t thank you enough. Each week when we head to Cite Soleil and Onaville we are reminded how bad we need this vehicle. In Onaville, our car scrapes the underside with the tough terrain and last week we had deep mud we had to trudge through. In Cite Soleil, there has just been so much water. There is basically no drainage system in that area. They are at sea level and it floods super easily; mud just falls into their houses and trash just gets swept into the streets from the overflow of water. Please if you can help with this need, we would greatly appreciate it. We are a nonprofit so all of your donations are tax deductible. You can give through our website at PricelessGrace.com or you can mail a check to:

DEEP DISCIPLESHIP

This past Sunday was Haitian Mother’s Day. I have had  the joy of being called mama by my beautiful girls and also to many here in Haiti. Not long after we arrived here, a translator started calling me “Mama Gwyn” and that name has stuck. I love the mama hat I get to wear because it’s such a privilege to be called to this role. Even the days that are not as fun, and believe me we had plenty of them especially with homeschooling for 13 years, I wouldn’t change a day. I’ll take the good with the not so good just to be able to be called mama. And I love that many here in Haiti call me mama. I feel like that term of endearment lets me know that they know I love them like a mama would and that I would do all that I could to help them and to see them grow in the Lord.

 I’ve been reading a book called Deep Discipleship by J.T. English; it talks about how the body of the church should have a plan for doing discipleship and that we should function like a family. There should be the mamas and papas that teach, encourage and correct and we should also have brothers and sisters in Christ that we can talk to, share life with, help each other through struggles and enjoy having fellowship with one another. English writes, “So, how do you have all members of the family pursuing maturity together, without falling back into the habits of comparison, competition, and frustration? We need to see one another as family. What if more mature saints viewed themselves as fathers and mothers who are meant to encourage and exhort younger believers as if they were their own sons and daughters? What if sons and daughters championed the growth and development of their more mature fathers and mothers? What if we were as invested in one another’s growth as we are invested in our own? What if the holistic discipleship of others mattered as much as our own?” (65)

Troy and I feel discipleship happens best as we do life together. It takes building relationships. Throughout our lives, God has brought people in and out our lives that we hopefully have encouraged, helped spiritually mature and even corrected when they needed it. We did that with many of our kid’s friends as they were growing up and we’ve also had the privilege to do that here in Haiti as well. Discipleship is essential to a growing Christian and it doesn’t ever stop. We all need that person in our lives that can teach us, advise us and correct us when we need it. 

Discipleship is essential in growing spiritually. I would highly encourage you if you don’t have someone investing in you, seek out a more mature Christian and ask them to meet with you regularly. Allow them to speak into your life and point you to Christ. Be gracious when it might be something hard to hear. Get involved in a church that is actively investing in their people to spiritually grow. 

This is why Troy and I have been partnering with a local church here in Haiti. We’ve been working with Pastor Savin now for three years. We began these discipleship classes about nine months ago. It is our prayer that they will learn, do and teach this information to someone. Please pray that we would clearly teach each spiritual discipline and that they would be empowered to go and teach someone else. ~ Gwyn

Sun City 

 

We were finally able to officially open the new clinic in Cite Soleil!  The last year and a half has been a time of preparation, waiting, personal growth, and more waiting. So many times we thought the clinic was going to start only to have to push the date further out one more time.  

At different times, I even wondered if the clinic was ever going to happen. We had done everything that we could possibly do to prepare for it. We had built furniture, bought the needed supplies, and medicines. We had prayed, poured over scripture and sought to listen to what God was saying.  

When we came back home from our trip to America in March, we decided to once again set a date to start the clinic. The date we put on the calendar was May 6th. We had to postpone one more time to the 13th and, finally we were able to begin. 

The 13th was a day that felt like a dream. The staff was in place, the babies and moms were on time, and we began to see patients just like our other clinic in Delmas. 

The experience of opening a clinic in a place like Cite Soleil has taught me a couple of lessons: 

  • When we first decided to go into Citie Soleil, there were people who told us not to go because it was too dangerous. We were told to think about other places to go. While Citie Soleil is somewhat dangerous, the babies and moms in that place deserve a chance to be healthy, and to hear the gospel just like everyone else. 

  • The time between our first idea and actual start of the clinic was about a year and a half. In that time, we learned a bunch about patience. We learned even more about God’s timing. 

  • There is a beauty in things that on the surface look messy or ugly. In order to get to the clinic, you must pass through an area in which has huge amounts of drain water flowing through to the bay. In this drain water, there is a lot of trash that piles up and is removed by some of the locals. The scene is somewhat like movies such as “Escape From New York” or “Omega Man”. Once this area is passed, the beauty of the people becomes evident. 

We are excited to be working in Cite Solel. We are super thankful for our partnership with Luken Foundation. We would not be able to be in this city without their help. Luken Ern has a ministry there that feeds kids and helps with school fees. He is also discipling several of the local men. Steve and Brandy Stewart and Richard Burge also work with Luken Foundation and they have been a huge encouragement to us. The first week we admitted two babies, and this past week we admitted four more. Please pray for the clinic. Pray for continued safe passage, peace on the streets, and of course, for the parents and children. ~ Troy
