In December 2010, our trainers led a class on evangelism with the agents in the mountain village of Fontina. The way the program works is that once an agent is taught a lesson, he/she is responsible to go door to door to about 10 families and pass on what they have learned. This day in December, one agent, Rosier, heard the Good News of Jesus and confessed that he could not continue as an agent in Community Health Evangelism because he was unable to live right. He then talked to Joseph, our head trainer; he told him he couldn’t be in the program because he was living with his girlfriend, the mother of his children, and could not afford to marry her.
Weddings are big celebrations in Haiti and to do small and modest is an insult to the bride and an embarrassment to both families. Joseph counselled him and prayed with him and Rosier accepted Jesus. CHE bought him a goat and suits and dresses were borrowed for the occasion. In April 2011, a wedding took place.. Jump ahead one year to April 2012. Rosier’s wife has accepted Christ and Roiser, himself is a Sunday School teacher. He is on the Leadership Committee in his village and is growing in his faith. He shares the Good News with anyone who will listen and has lead many people to Salvation in Jesus Christ. He has been blessed with another child who will grow up in the church and know about Jesus. This village now has latrines, Bibles and Health Books for every family. God is doing great things in Haiti!
