The MH Haitian staff is divided into various areas of work and ministry but the afternoon meeting brought to light the humble collaboration that God is fostering among the entire team. An extensive list of programs and projects could be compiled from the updates each staff member shared but what stands out is the teamwork being demonstrated.

Pi bon ansonm --- Better together
Lumanes, MH Chaplain, has been connected to each area of ministry to complete the loop with follow up of spiritual development for people touched in some way by MH.
The PET cart distribution program was one area of collaboration for Lumanes as he accompanied MH 2-man PET team to the home of Fordue Pierre, a man receiving a PET cart.
Just in the past months since beginning his employment with MH, Lumanes has seen 16 people come to know the saving Grace of Jesus Christ. Earlier this week he made a follow up visit to a man, Francios St. Louis, whose family had received a gift of food from a team of college students that MH hosted. Lumanes demonstrates confidence alongside gentleness and humility while he shares common, ordinary parable type stories and examples as a way to introduce people to Jesus.
During the afternoon staff meeting Lumanes shared many encouraging thoughts. He said he certainly sees the hand of God on this work we are all doing together in and around the Sylvain/Pignon area. He thinks God has His plan and is using MH to execute the plan. He feels the various works of MH are tools in the extraordinary work being done, not with selfishness but with collaboration and humility because he sees MH following the way Jesus did His ministry.
Finally, our team of guys, in charge of security, are working selflessly to watch over people, property and belongings so that work can continue uninterrupted. We recently purchased a set of multiple two-way radios for use on the property. One radio is always on in the guest house and we can hear their collaboration as they communicate back and forth together making sure all areas are covered. One night we hear Kalo calling for Felix's attention. Felix responds...IN ENGLISH..."What's up?", translated into Creole..."Sac Pase?"

We feel God used this brief hour long meeting to develop and build unity among the MH staff as each could see the impact being made for the kingdom. That impact is magnified because we are collaborating together, standing together, fighting together, working together…for Christ.
