Lord, Here I Am
// Tim DeTellis
What would be the ultimate hope and prayer for our graduates? May they pray: “Here I am Lord, use me.”
With the breeze blowing through the New Missions church in Signeau, Haiti, graduates from our Bible college began their processional line dressed in their caps and gowns. Family and friends gathered to celebrate this milestone of an accomplishment.
In a country where Voodoo is still prominent, the truth and hope found in knowing Jesus is shining brighter than ever. Today, we rejoice knowing each student in our high school began school with New Missions when they were preschool or kindergarten age.
My father, Pastor George, began our Bible college in Haiti with the purpose to equip the next generation to serve the local church and missions across Haiti. Today, we have graduates from our Bible college serving across the island of Hispaniola in roles such as pastors, mission directors, and church planters.
Pastor Joseph Elifete Eliane who serves at our New Missions church in TiBoukan, was one of those graduates. Today, he leads a church and New Missions Christian Academy. We see Haiti as a country on the rise, and at the center of it are these new Christian leaders. ~Tim DeTellis
