The team is here!

January 18th, 2013

The team is here, let the work begin.  We are excited for them to complete some projects in the upcoming week.  May God bless their time here as they teach, as they have many conversations with the young students at Adoration Christian Centre.  May God keep them safe as they travel and as they work.  Thanks for coming and taking the time out of your schedules and leaving loved ones behind.

ps: lots of pictures tomorrow

The Parachute!

January 17th, 2013

Recently a parachute came from Canada for Phys. Ed. classes.  Just this past week I spent some time teaching the teachers how to use it.  As you can see it was a lot of fun by teachers and students alike.

Almost three years ago the LORD in His wisdom decided to shake Haiti a little bit more then the rest of the world that day.  At 4:53 pm the country of Haiti would never be the same again.  Peoples lives were thrown into disarray, lives were changed, people lost loved ones, and many buildings were destroyed.

On Friday we had two services at Adoration Christian Centre.  We had one in the morning with the students from Adoration Christian School and the one in the afternoon with the secondary students.

Pastor Delfius focusing on Psalm 46.

Psalm 46

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Come and see what the LORD has done, the desolations he has brought on the earth. He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire. He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

The heart of Adoration Christian Centre!

January 10th, 2013

Our secretary, Stephanie, joined our staff this year in September.  It took Adoration a long time to find a good secretary to fit the role that was needed here at the Centre, because we were picky when choosing a person for this position.  Secretaries do a lot of grunt work behind the scenes; the typing, the organizing, the administrative work and keeping the students in line.  The Lord has blessed Stephanie with many great qualities that make here a good fit here.  She is a hard worker and she is dedicated to her job.

Stephanie was born in Port au Prince and still continues to live in the capital city of this country.   She now lives in the neighbourhood of Bon Repos with her mother.  Stephanie is in school right now working on her diploma in Office Administration.  She has one year left.   She has been a great fit with the organization and gets along with all those that work here.  She has a good sense of humour, which is something she needs when she works at the Centre.  She likes being a secretary because she is given a lot of responsibilities which helps her grow intellectually.

Stephanie is very involved in her church as well.  She is responsible for the children’s program at her church and as well she is the president of the young peoples.  In her spare time she loves to read both novels and books with a lot of information.

If there is one thing that she could do it would be to find some money so that she can go back to university and learn more about the all the different things in creation.
