WEI Center in Haiti
Thanks, in part, to contributions given in memory of our late brother, Clifford Yeldell (who had a heart for Haiti), the WEI Center at the Delmas 43 Church of Christ in Port-au-Prince is now equipped with a 3,000-watt power inverter.
Heretofore, WEI students from various parts of Haiti have come to the Delmas church building to study on church computers. In many cases, they have traveled a considerable distance only to discover that there was no electricity and no access to the Internet.
Now, with the power inverter, there is a dependable source of power all the time, and the computers at the center are up-and-running even when the local power grid has been shut down.
We express our sincere thanks to Brother Jean Robert St-Hilaire, the local minister, for serving as the Director of WEI in Haiti. We also express our thanks to the Delmas congregation for providing the WEI study room, a secretary, and a room full of computers.
It is a joy to have fellowship with Brother Jean Robert and the Delmas church. Brother Jean Robert is one of the most effective gospel preachers in the Western Hemisphere. By the grace of God, he baptizes literally hundreds of people every year.
In his September 16 newsletter, he reported that he and his team had baptized 170 people in the river in a remote part of Haiti where many people had never heard the good news about Christ. This month, Jean Robert is leading a WEI campaign in the Dominican Republic. Praise God.
“How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?” – Romans 10:14
