Encouragement Came Like This Today

As Eastside Baptist in Twin Falls, Idaho continues to ask God for help in the ongoing work in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, we find that our dependence upon the Lord increases as we pray. February marks the tenth month of obeying the Lord to fully support a church plant, a home for abandoned, orphaned, and neglected girls, and a school to educate the girls. I am thankful to the Lord for a believing people who will trust the Lord. This is not easy. It is not natural to the natural man to do when he doesn’t see.

I post today, to encourage the Lord’s people who pray. We do not ask for financial help from anyone or anywhere to fund what God has called us to do. Yet God is pleased to prompt His people from many places to encourage. Renee and I will depart soon for another trip to Haiti. We will be blessed to see the girls and the faithful caregivers at New Horizon Home.

GiftsFromGodLast week, before we were aware of the need, God prompted two people from different parts of the United States to send Eastside Baptist Church money for New Horizon Home. Today, after praying this morning for what appeared to be a financially tight month for funds the mail man delivered two envelopes with provision enough and encouragement to press on.

To the Lord’s people, be encouraged…


1 The LORD is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the defense of my life;
Whom shall I dread? 2 When evildoers came upon me to devour my flesh,
My adversaries and my enemies, they stumbled and fell. 3 Though a host encamp against me,
My heart will not fear;
Though war arise against me,
In spite of this I shall be confident.
Psalms 27:1-3 (NASB)

    I find that the same thing is happening here regarding Hatian college students. We are continually amazed as God prepares the way step by step, penny by penny. We have not asked for money either and people are coming forward and writing checks.
    I think eventually we are going to have to get our two ministries together and compare notes and share! i think it’s interesting how God is drawing both our hearts to Haiti.

      Janis, Yes, It would be a blessing the hear of the God ordained work of God with you guys among the Haitian college students.

      Are there current needs to house any of them for the fall semester of 2014? Keep me informed.
