A short-term mission team is being prepared for ministry in Haiti in September 2019. Contact your local church for information on the upcoming team preparation meetings.
- We maintained a good relationship with now-retired Superintendent Oliam Richard and supported and encouraged his leadership from the start of our work in Haiti in 2000 until his retirement in 2019. Pastor Supreme was elected Superintendent of the work at the annual convention August 9-11.
- After the terrible tragedy of the 2010 Earthquake, we were able to provide immediate relief (thanks in great part to the generosity of the US and Canadian donations "above and beyond" our normal giving). Our well-designed Delmas 33 conference centre and church was not damaged. We have assisted in the rebuilding of one of the flattened Citie Soleil churches and have started several more church constructions.
- Our partnership with CH Global has been very successful, with several schools started, micro-loans given and 200+ children sponsored.
- We are thrilled to see our American friends from King Street Church in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania getting involved with the Arcahaie and Gonaives churches.
- We were amazed to see the unfolding story of Hermmy, a young girl from one of our new church plants in Haiti come to Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto with a devastating heart defect. Unable to climb a flight of stairs without gasping, she is now healthy, thriving and growing tall at home, a normal girl who is very thankful.
- We have begun a partnership with Dr. Robinson Germain, a young physician who lost all his family and home in the earthquake. Dr. Germain currently is living in Canada, but still oversees medical ministry to the remote, impoverished village of Grand Seline. Dr. Germain returned to Grand Saline and the Cayes area recently to hold medical clinics.
- We currently support Brian and Rachel Glunt and their family in Chiang Rai, Thailand, who have concluded their first missionary term. They were busy learning the language and getting involved in a local church. While on home assignment in 2022 they connected with supporters and returned to return to Thailand this fall to work out of the new Community Center.
- Fraser Churchill with Operation Mobilization writes: "I travel overseas every month for 10 days but after this trip I will be home for 3 months with ‘no travel’. My last trip was 14 days in Haiti with our ship Logos hope. Most of my ministry is speaking, conference and mentoring our field leaders in ministry growth and sustainability. Currently I work with 30 of them in the Africa region, Southeast Asia and South and Central America."
- Rick Tyler in June 2022 retired from his work with the Christian Mission Resource Centre, supporting pastors and evangelists in Peru and Cuba.
- We have had several people involved in longer Missions Trips, several months to more than a year (Kara-Lynn Ferguson, Kristie Korten, Caitlyn Sippel, etc.).
