Hello, my church family!

Bonjou, fanmi legliz mwen an! Mwen tounen soti nan nèf semèn an Ayiti. Mwen te sonje yo anpil! (Translation: Hello, my church family! I am back from nine weeks in Haiti. I missed you all so much!) It is nice to be back and see everyone. It is very hard though because Haiti completely stole my heart and became my home in those nine weeks. I got to create many deep and intentional relationships with the community. The people in the community I lived in and the church I attended became my family. I was adopted as a Haitian after the 4th week when multiple people...


Haiti Short Term Mission Update

Serving on a short term mission trip (typically a week) is always such a great experience. I wish more people could go on them. It opens your eyes and heart to what living conditions are outside our fortunate country, gives you the opportunity to serve in different ways, allows God to move in you, and leaves some kind of impact on your heart and life. I am of the opinion that those trips often do more for the people who have the opportunity to serve than the ones who they go to serve. All of that rings true about my week trip to Haiti last summer,...


Operation Christmas Child: Round 2

We are having Christmas throughout the year here at LifePoint. All year round we are collecting items that we will culminate with a box packing party in November. Last quarter we collected hair items and this quarter we are asking for flip flops, socks & washcloths. These items get shipped all around the world to various children who basically have the clothes on their back and bare feet. Their parents or caregiver work hard to feed them through the year and the extras that we take for granted in the states, toys, shoes, toothbrushes and more, are far from their financial grasps. OCC is a great...


Internship in Haiti

Haiti is a small piece of a small island in the Caribbean, about the size of Massachusetts, where complete poverty is the norm. The resources are very few, the people are many, there is no established medical care, and basic needs are not getting met across the country. People are going hungry daily, many areas drink unsafe water, and a lot of those who have homes barely qualify as adequate shelter. Haitians are often dying of preventable or treatable diseases and conditions, but they don’t have the resources or knowledge to prevent/treat them. This nation is still heavily influenced by voodoo practices, though the official religion...


Medication Fundraiser for Haiti

Haiti is a heavily populated island in the Caribbean, neighboring the Dominican Republic. The population of Haiti is approximately 10.8 million people, which makes it the most populated country in the Caribbean. To date, Haiti does not have any kind of government healthcare system, and due to the corrupt government they do have, many of the citizens are left to figure it out on their own, which means they often die from some of the most common illnesses that we can be healed from in the United States. Why are we mentioning this to you? In September a group of 12 people from LifePoint Church will...

April 2019 Haiti Medical Mission Highlights

I knew that it would be a good week when I felt the Holy Spirit‘s presence surrounding us as we landed in Haiti. As we traveled to very endemic villages in northern Haiti, our cohesive team of 12 walked in the midst of the Holy Spirit every step of the way. We provided medical care, love, hope, prayer and even a little evangelism. Our team was comprised of one Physician, two Nurse Practitioners, four Nurses, and five non-medical / pharmacy team members. In addition to the 12, we also worked closely with our five translators and driver. We started every day with devotionals and ended every...


Easter, the local Mission Field!

At LifePoint we emphasize the need and our desire to go throughout the world helping others and bringing the gospel. This weekend the part of the world we are focusing on is right here at the church. We will have hundreds of guests flowing through our church for the first time, many of whom do not know Jesus as their savior. We need you to assist in the many areas of volunteer needs. Parking lot attendants, usher/greeters, and Kidzlife are the areas of greatest need. We have four services again this year. Sunrise service at 6:30 will be in need of set up, tear down, usher...


Celebrate Together

Celebrations are the most joyful times of the year.  From cake at birthdays to dancing at weddings, nothing is as special as when we celebrate the good things in life.  Easter is the day we celebrate the most miraculous event to ever have occurred, the day that Christ rose again.   It’s not a solemn day that we remember in solitude, but a day to join together in praise and worship and rejoice in what He has done for us.  The grave is empty!  Jesus has given us life and life abundantly!  Because this is a celebration for all people, don’t forget to invite your neighbors, family,...


Living Out the Great Commission in Haiti

How many of us would like a step by step instruction manual for how to live out our Christian lives? Wouldn’t that be the easiest way to be certain that we are living out God’s calling? Imagine if we did not have to analyze each season in our life or listen intently for the calling that God has placed upon our lives- it was just presented in black and white in front of us. Unfortunately, God does not work in that way. He requires us to step out in faith and as we take scary and uncertain steps from one season to the next, and as...
