“I have just returned this past Wednesday night from a week of ministry in the Caribbean.  The first few days were spent preaching a series of services for Haitians living in Abaco, Bahamas—which number in the thousands.  There are also 3 growing Haitian Churches there that came together for these services.  The meetings were sponsored by our primary Caribbean partners in the BECA, or “Bahamas Evangelical Church Association” headed by Pastor Wilbur Outten.  After the meetings in Abaco, I made a brief visit to Freeport, then on to Port-au-Prince, Haiti—our oldest field of service dating back some 40 years.  I was accompanied in each place by NDI Board Member, Coy Tillett, who has led annual building teams to Haiti and the Bahamas for over 20 years.  He was down with me on a recon trip to scope out the next church-building project that we will tackle early in 2008.  I hope the following pictures will give you a quick overview of our time there.”

In His Healing Love,

This is the inside of the church where we held the nightly service for Haitians of the Diaspora living in Abaco.  This was one of the last mission projects that NDI Board Member, Wes Morgan, helped complete before God called him home to heaven.  It was a great joy to inaugurate this new church building in his honor.
