PRAY FOR HAITI

The government of Haiti is struggling with riots and unrest as the people call for the president to step down and the officials who they believe have squandered millions of dollars in aid. Pastor Andre Louis and Sister Ghilslaine have been unable to get back into the country due to the political unrest, but the work of the churches and the schools have been safe and moving forward. Please keep the people of Haiti in your prayers as they struggle for change and peace in this needy island nation.

Christmas Greetings for 2018

Pastor Andre and Ghislaine send you the warmest greetings. They are so grateful for your love and continued support of the work or Independent Christian Alliance Churches and the progress of the Gospel in the nation of Haiti.

You have heard much recently about the unrest and troubles in Haiti as the people have been protesting the government’s attempt to increase prices and the corruption of government officials in robbing millions from the government. The unrest isn’t as bad now as earlier, but travel is still difficult and in places dangerous. All of the ICA churches have been safe from the unrest, but life has been difficult.

How badly the people of Haiti need to hear the message of the angels – “Glory to God in the highest; Peace on earth, good will to men!” Pray that many will come to know Jesus as Savior and Lord through the Christmas preaching and services this year.

The annual Bible conference is scheduled for January 3-6, 2019. The theme this year is “Biblical Preaching in the Modern Church” and a national speaker has been chosen instead of importing an English speaker from the States. Pray for a powerful move of Holy Spirit in the church and for the future growth of the gospel across Haiti in 2019.

May God bless you and yours with great joy in Jesus’ coming and His rule and reign over the affairs of all nations. May Jesus’ great gift of peace be yours and increase throughout 2019 - until Jesus comes again!

ICA Haiti Schools

Education is a high priority to the churches of the Independent Christian Alliance Churches of Haiti. Children in Haiti are not guaranteed an education as they are in the US, so the churches often build and staff elementary and high schools for the purpose of educating the next generation of citizens as well as future church leaders.

This education comes at a cost and many of the country’s poor cannot afford the tuition, school uniforms and school supplies that an education requires. That is why Independent Christian Alliance churches seek to provide education opportunities when they can. At the present time there are 14 schools (12 elementary and two secondary “high” schools). There are over 1,750 children in these schools.

The Mission has established a school sponsorship program where a person/family can “adopt” a student and help with the costs to provide that student with the opportunity for an education. At the present time there are almost 350 students in need of sponsorship so that they can continue or further their education.

The cost for sponsorship is $25.00 a month and covers the student’s tuition, uniform and school supplies. Among those students that are in need of sponsorship are these five: Carlens Mathurin (age 7), Ordely Joseph (age 9), Ramson Glode Paul (age 6), Christelle DeVole (age 6), and Raphael Joseph (age 4).

If you would be interested in sponsoring any of these children, please contact Rev. Terry Major (68 Talbott Ave., Martinsburg, WV 25405; oridwanyks@gmail.com) and he will forward you the picture of that student and support information for sending your monthly contribution to ICA. Feel free to contact ICA directly if you would be interested in sponsorship of older children.

You can also find more information about this program as well as providing meals for students under the “sponsor a student” tab.

History of the ministry

After being saved as a result of my mother’s being delivered and healed from the power of Voodoo sprits in Haiti, Andre J. Louis felt the call to the ministry of preaching the Gospel. He went to Prairie Bible Institute at Three Hills, Alberta, Canada. Graduated in April 1971, he returned to Haiti in September 1971 with his wife Gislaine Thevenin and his three children, Jean Ramy, Evens Handel and Ferl Jerry. Unfortunately his wife Gislaine Louis on September 29, 2007, went to be with the Lord and is now rejoicing in heaven with the saints.

In September 1971, Andre and Gislaine started a Church in a small room of their home 8’X10’, with 11 people including the members of their family. They began to hold services, and Andre had Bible studies with a few people, and could not get out of the ground, for not many folks were interested in his teaching and preaching which were not too demonstrative with signs and wonders. But around 1973, Ms. Rosana Dorceus was sick, had stomachache that made her suffer a lot. Her stomach became very big so that everyone was concerned about her. She was led to the Lord by the missionary ladies of our very small Church. We prayed for her many times, she was not healed until on a Sunday evening service, I prayed for many people by laying on hands on them. Ms Dorceus went home after she was prayed for. On the following Wednesday evening service, people were giving their testimonies. Ms. Dorceus stood up without the big belly she used to have and began by testifying, saying after she went home that night after that prayer, she went to the bathroom and passed through water 3 small dead snakes and three other smalls creatures whose English name I don’t know, but we call marocas in Creole.

Ms Dorceus was delivered from six evil spirits that took the shapes of small snakes and other creatures. The word went around and people who knew about her condition and that she was going to die came to the Lord when we witnessed to them about the Lord Jesus Christ.

Since then, the ministry started to pick up. When we preached, taught, people listened and got saved. The small room became too small to hold so many new converts. The Lord opened doors from foreign friends who sent their supports and we were able to buy a land at Carrefour where we built a Church that we entered in January 1975. Now we are averaging over 1,000 members in it.

Contrarily to our understanding to be the pastor of one church, the Lord opened doors for us to start new Churches in other areas in the country. This way we have been able to establish 53 churches, but due to the lack of fond, we could not continue with all them. About ten of them left us.
