ABOVE: Our students and churches use the benches weekly for worship and chapel services.

Seven Haitian workers are involved in the fabrication and installation of benches for our churches. Our church pews are made either 10 or 14-feet long (the 10 foot benches are for our smaller churches).

First, the metal legs are welded on by our welder, Luc Bertrand. The church pews are then bolted together, and a piece of angle iron is also welded at this time to the bottom of the church pew legs. The carpenters’ names are Litnier, Paul, and Sony. The benches are then varnished and the metal is painted black by our painters Ton Ton, Cartier, and Jeaune. Finally, the benches are delivered to the churches and bolted securely to the floor.     

Luc Bertrand, a graduate of New Missions from Neply, Haiti, is our welder who makes the legs for our church benches.

100% Haitian made by our carpenters and welder, church benches provide more seating in our churches.

We recently finished delivering benches to our high school chapel, which is also used as our Signeau church. On several occasions we have seen people praying and seeking the Lord in the churches. I am sure the villagers rejoiced in seeing the delivery of more benches for their church.  

New church benches have been installed at our church in Signeau, Haiti, and also at our high school chapel.
