There is so much going on in the prayer world for Christianville (CV) in Haiti. Currently, Doug & I are in Ohio with our families and daily raising awareness of the needs in Haiti. We start by asking for these prayers to be prayed:
1. We are in need of an administrator/director to live in Haiti. We have a person that we are interested in bringing to the board however they are still in the praying stages of making a decision. Please pray that God is evident in His choice to work for CV. Also we are not closing the door to others to pray about considering this position.
2. We are in need for a teacher/director of the English Academy to live in Haiti. Currently, Amy is filling the position of the director and has a Haitian substitute teacher in the classroom. The position is a fairly simple position however we ask that this person also be willing to help with other programs going on at the mission. This person would be a teacher for ages 3-6 (Pre-K) from 7:30am -12noon, teaching a home school curriculum called ACE. They would also be in charge of 2 other Haitian teachers, disciplinary actions for students, as well as making sure all tuition is paid to the school on a semi annual basis.
3. US financial giving is down dramatically and CV members as a whole are fundraising and continually looking for sponsors for the school children. Please pray that new people will want to help financially that our current supporters remember how much we rely on their monthly commitments to keep our mission going.
There are no short term teams coming to Christianville in December. All clinics will close next week for the holidays and all missionaries should be leaving to be with their families for Christmas. YTD we have had approximately 200 decisions for Christ throughout Christianville in 2008. Hats off to the clinic, for being God’s tool for about 150 of those decisions. Starting Jan. 5, 2009 we will be busy with short term teams and the clinics and schools will reopen on the 5th and the 12th.
Satan is peeking wherever he can but God is so good to show us His power.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Doug & Amy Reichley
