Pavilion Being Built

As you may know, several years ago we purchased a piece of land adjacent to the Bible College. At this time we are using it as a gathering place for students between classes and as our lunch area. We have a shade cloth over part of it presently to diminish the sun rays. We have now decided to build a pavilion to protect the students completely from sun and rain. We are planning on doing it in 3 stages – footings, columns, and roof. First stage will cost $ 600. The second stage will cost $ 2,400. The third stage will cost $ 2,600. Please consider coming on a team and/or financially supporting this project as God leads you. We would like to do our first stage in July

Radio Broadcast

EXCITING NEWS - I have begun teaching on a radio station in West Palm Beach every 3rd Sunday from 10 pm. to 11 pm. I dial their number and teach over my phone. It is broadcast live with a question and answer time at the end. This is done on a Spanish / Haitian radio station called Sansfrontiere. If anyone wants more information on this radio station just go to www.wpspradio.com

Ministry & Carnival

A lot happened during the week of Carnival/Mardi Gras. While the world was partying, it was an opportunity for us as a church to do more ministry because people are off work and schools were all out for the week of festivities. During this time, 4 of our 5 Bible school classes held intensive 3 day courses. Also, the 4th year Bible College students had 4 days of ministry at one of our churches in the mountains. Led by Professor Jose Brenard, 14 students preached, taught, evangelized, and worked at restoring broken relationships in Fond de Blanc church. During those 4 days, 25 people came to know the Lord and 10 members were restored to the local church there. Also during Carnival week, I went to minister in our New Life church in Lazile, which is 4 ½ hours from where we live. I taught a seminar to 45 church leaders as well as preaching Sunday morning in their church. It was a blessed time in the Lord. I thank God for Pastor Ylophane Dieuseul who is doing a good work.

New Truck & Answer to Prayer

First and foremost, we thank God for His grace and mercy. Another year is almost over and God has sustained us and His work here in Haiti. Secondly, we want to thank all those who have prayed and given to us and New Life Mission of Haiti. Without you we would not be able to do what God has called us to do in Haiti. Lastly, we pray that God richly blesses you, and all the churches who stand with us.
We rejoice greatly because God has enabled us to purchase a new Ford double cab pickup truck. We thank all of you who prayed on our behalf and gave to this need. It will be a blessing to us and the ministry here in Haiti.

New Life Bible College has completed its first semester with 90 students in attendance. We ask you to keep them in prayer as many struggle financially and face many challenges in Haiti. Some may not return for the second semester due to these difficulties. We thank God for each one of our students who have committed themselves to 5 years of study.

New Year for New Life Bible College & New car very soon.

Greetings in the beloved name of our Lord Jesus Christ! We pray that this letter finds you doing well in the Lord.

Today is our 5th week of school for New Life Bible College. We thank God for the 90 students who are committed to five years of study. They come every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and on most holidays to study the Word of God and be equipped for Christ's service. Some travel 5 hours every week to be trained. They make great sacrifices financially to study the Word of God at New Life Bible College. We thank all of you who sponsor a Bible College student. Many would not be able to come if it was not for your gifts. If you would like to sponsor a student, contact us by email for details.

Almost there!!! -We thank God for all those who have given towards our new double cab pickup truck fund. We only need $4,000 more to arrive at the amount needed to purchase one. A good 4 wheel drive vehicle is essential to the success of our work here in Haiti. It will be used extensively to serve the Haitian people and their churches. Please help us cross the finish line.

Our Leaders - We just finished a mini working retreat for our Haitian mission board. It was a time of great importance in working out some issues we face in New Life Mission of Haiti. We thank God that all went well. Pray for our leaders who face many challenges. One of the challenges Haitian churches are facing is keeping qualified leaders. Many leaders are leaving Haiti due to the poor economy which has worsened over the past few years.

 Troubling Times- Please be praying for Haiti. It is in very difficult times. There is much upheaval because the government is not making wise decisions. There are constant road block and strikes taking place throughout the country. Pray for protection for us and especially for Rachel who has to cross the city of Port-au-Prince every day to teach.

We thank you for your prayers and support of us and the Haitian people.

School Opening

We are excited to announce that we already have $10,000 for our new truck. We only lack $ 8,000. We thank everyone who has given to this important need. We are trusting God to bring in the rest of the money.

We have kicked off our new school year with a bang. Last month we had our teacher training for our elementary teachers to help them improve their methods. The 3 New Life Elementary schools sent in 35 teachers. School started on September 4th timidly which is the norm here in Haiti. It will not be until mid-September that we will truly know how many children will be present.

On the 2nd of September, we started the year for New Life Bible College. We had 50% of the school body present on the first day which is actually better than normal. As with the elementary school, we will not know how many students are actually returning or how many new students because we keep registration open until mid-September. Yes, this is odd to you, but it is normal procedure here in Haiti. We are anticipating a student body of 90 this year. Many are already leaders in their local churches and some are pastoring churches.

New Vehicle

After being two months in the United States, we are back home, in Haiti. We traveled over 4000 miles by car. Flew to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and back to Haiti. Flew from Rochester, NY to Plano, TX to visit my mother, two brothers and their families. We thank all those who allowed us to stay in their homes, and the churches that put us in hotels during our travels. It was great seeing everyone and ministering in the churches. We were truly blessed by you all.

As some of you may know already, we are looking at buying a new 4x4 Double Cab Diesel pick-up truck for us and the ministry we are doing in Haiti. It will replace our present one. We thank all those who contributed to the present one we have. It has now 7 years old. Seven years of service here is like 12 years of service in the U.S.

We use our pick-up truck extensively. We carry up to 10 people sometimes with the two benches in the back. We haul construction materials for churches and schools. We have even put live stock in the back. It takes us to remote churches, that often require 4 wheel drive, where we preach and teach the Word of God. A dependable truck is a necessity in a country where mechanics shops are not the best, and parts are very expensive.

In light of all this, we would ask you to consider making a donation to our truck fund. The truck we are planing on purchasing is $33,000. We still need $16,000.

May the Lord richly bless you,
Roger & Margaret Clark
