Bondye bon! (God is good!) For the past two years, Central has been partnering with the Church of St. Philip and St. Jacques in Trou Jacques, Haiti, to help them build a sanctuary. We have been working closely with the Montgomery family in undertaking this project in loving memory of Howard and Margaret Montgomery. This week, Gary Charles, Bede Campbell, members of other La Gonave Haiti Partnership churches, and children & grandchildren of Howard and Margaret worshipped in the new church building as it was dedicated on Sunday. The bishop of the Episcopal diocese preached, and Gary spoke on behalf of our congregation. We celebrate the goodness of God, the faithfulness of the Trou Jacques church, and the legacy of Howard and Margaret Montgomery!
Though the church building is complete, our partnership with Trou Jacques is ongoing! In the next phase of construction, they will build a new cistern to collect water: a rare and precious resource on the mountain. In addition, Central will continue to support a school lunch program in Trou Jacques, help with teacher salaries, and remain partners in mission and in prayer.
How can I help?
