Needs Met, Visit and Supporting Mom

Greetings in the name of Christ.

Needs Met
I continue to reap the benefits of your unceasing prayers. Although I have dedicated myself wholly to ministry and have not been working a regular job (receiving the steady income I previously enjoyed), it is exciting to see how the LORD continues to meet ALL of my needs. I was reminded of this yesterday when I went to get my prescription polarized glasses fixed, and they decided to give me a brand new pair for free! It is true as it says in Matthew 6:33 CEV, "Put God’s work first and do what he wants. Then the other things will be yours as well." I will share more news about this as the plans unfold for a property and a little mission base in Haiti.

Visit
I am currently visiting the United States with a Haitian pastor/friend (Nestor Pierre) and have enjoyed seeing many of you, and look forward to seeing the rest, if possible. I have two opportunities for this...
Supporting Mom
Last week, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Through God's divine timing, I already had my ticket purchased and plans made to be together with my family. Although I didn't know the importance of my presence to my mother and father at this time, God did. Thank you so much for your prayers, especially for healing of my mother (Miriam Arbaugh).

I am having a wonderful time loving, being loved and enjoying time with my family.

Dad, James, Nestor and Mom

Showing Movies and Amiga Island

I have been in the North of Haiti for a few days now.  I've been partnering with Joel Trimble (Haiti for Christ) to show movies in rural communities.

Getting to a Movie Showing at Labadie Village

Inviting People to Attend the Movie
I have also been able to do some fun activities during the day while here in the area.  One of those fun activities was sport fishing and snorkeling on the reef of Amiga Island.  Please enjoy this video of pictures and video clips taken while on the reef using an underwater camera enclosure.
