Haiti (MNN) ― There is need on every corner and in every face you see in Haiti.
"The needs are never-ending," says Ron Sparks of Baptist Haiti Mission (BHM). "That's the nature of the country, the nature of the circumstance that the Haitian people find themselves in."
Sparks says sends teams are sent regularly to help Haitians in dire straits.
"Whether construction teams, medical teams, or evangelistic teams: whatever they may be," Sparks says, "sharing the Gospel is always at the heart of people's efforts."
In fact, a team just got back from a 6-day kids' camp in northwestern Haiti. Click here to see pictures of the trip on our Facebook page.
Team members told the story of Jesus, and many children accepted Him as their Savior.
"Eight children on one day, 14 children another day, and then 21 children another day, then another child the next day," Sparks describes.
More than 40 children came to Christ as a result of the outreach. Many came from voodoo backgrounds, so pray that they would share the Gospel with their families.
"Being Haitian automatically gives you a voodoo influence or background to some extent," says Sparks, adding that many Haitians grew up learning the voodoo teachings.
"The light of Christ that comes into people's homes and lives…can be life changing."
Pray that many lives and communities would change as the Gospel spreads in Haiti. Pray for BHM missions teams, too.
Pray for "safety and encouragement as they go through problem after problem with the political unrest," Sparks requests. Pray also for "weather problems--hurricanes, earthquakes."
