Ministry Update From Jeremie and Vacation

Being out of regular work has it's advantages.  One of them being freedom to do what I want, or freedom to do what God wants.  In my freedom, I spent a month showing movies in the Grand’Anse (Jeremie area) where I used to live.  This was super rewarding and super fun, but exhausting.  I stayed with my Haitian pastor as a base, but went out frequently on overnight trips.  I showed movies 34 times.  There were some kids programs during the day, which made for more than one movie showing per day on average!  I had a few free nights to rest too.  I am still trying to interpret the outcome of this time spent in ministry.  I saw amazing results like I had NEVER seen before while living there.  I don’t know why!  For example, in 2014, I showed movies 79 times and saw 59 decisions for Christ.  During the month in Jeremie, I showed movies 34 times, and saw 141 decisions for Christ. There were also accounts of new believers burning their voodoo fetishes.  I question if God is using the numbers and the testimony to steer me into full-time ministry.  Please pray for me as I'm seeking God's will in this.

Recently another missionary requested I translate the documentary on revival in Figi; Let the Sea Resound.  The trailer in English is here.  I translated the trailer to Haitian Creole already and have shown it a few times getting mixed results.  The initial trailer in Haitian Creole is here. Please pray for me as I'm seeking God's will in this.

I drew a home/mission base blueprint, in case I should branch out into more ministry and not have housing supplied by my work. When the thought of building a house first came to my mind, I prayed that if it was of the Lord, I would continue thinking about it. I have shared this with family and friends and can’t stop thinking about it.  Please pray for God to provide land at His perfect spot, if this is His will!

I returned to the US and have been visiting family in Virginia.  Next week, m
y mom and dad and I, plan to start a cross-country trip to Wyoming (Old Faithful Geyser).

Thanks for your prayers through this exciting transition in my life/ministry.  Please also pray that organization where I worked that we will soon be able to come to an agreement concerning final compensation per the employment agreement.
