Proud and tall, Pastor Jean Guillaume walked his daughter down the aisle. Not only was she a pastor’s daughter, but also a graduate of New Missions. Nearly 500 people attended the wedding celebration on Saturday, January 24, 2015, at 3:30 in the afternoon. They gathered at the New Missions church in the town of Leogane, Haiti.

In the country of Haiti, where marriage is rare and polygamy is still practiced, we are thankful and celebrate the marriage of Jean Valantin Edmond and and Guilene Guillaume. “He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord.” Proverbs 18:22

The bride is a school teacher at our Leogane Elementary School, where she herself attended school as a child. Her husband is a teacher at our high school. As role models, both husband and wife are helping to grow a new generation of Christian leaders for Haiti.

Together, we are changing lives—because each child matters to God. Both Jean Valantin Edmond and Guilene Guillaume are fruit of a steadfast commitment we have to our mission. Thank you for standing with us as we continue to serve strong and raise a generation of Christian leaders.  ~Tim DeTellis
