Haiti 6/11 Mission Trip Report

God’s Plan ” B “

Traveling in Haiti can be a challenge and an adventure. With few paved roads, our treks to provide medical clinics to the more remote and impoverished areas are always a reason for concentrated prayer.

We traveled to such a region our first day of clinic and made the 14 mile trip in 2 1/2 hours with only one flat tire. The weather held with no rain, so the creeks that we forded had not become impassable rivers. We were to return to the same area for clinic on our second day, but on the same treacherous stretch of rocky terrain, where we had our flat tire the previous day, a large truck had overturned, blocking the road, and preventing us from reaching our original destination.

One thing that is stressed on every mission trip is to stay flexible. We turned the vehicles around and in about 10 minutes arrived at a church/school where we had held a clinic 2 years prior. The pastor directed us to a small concrete block building with a tin roof. After a cow was removed from the building, it was swept and we set up our clinic. One young man was sent out into the surrounding neighborhood with a megaphone to tell the people we were providing a free medical clinic. We saw 187 needy patients that day and shared with them that it was God’s love that brought us there.

The gospel was presented to over 250 people with 15 accepting Jesus as their Savior. God’s plan “B” was actually His plan “A” and we are grateful to have been a part of it!

BRIDGES One Day Conference

Date: October 8, 2011
Location: Idlewild Baptist Church

About the Seminar

It Will Inspire You Over 10,000 people have experienced Bridges One-Day, formerly known as the Sharing the Hope Seminar. This dynamic one-day seminar taught by Crescent Project founder and author Fouad Masri will inspire and motivate you to take the gospel to your Muslim friends and neighbors.

It Will Equip YouWhether you encounter Muslims in the grocery aisle or are preparing for full-time service overseas, Bridges One-Day will expand your knowledge of Islam and equip you to bridge the gospel to the Muslim heart and mind.

As a LIVE version of the 6-week Bridges small group study, the one-day seminar gives you the opportunity to experience and interact with Fouad, live in person!

Fouad’s fun and energetic style will keep you laughing and engaged as you explore:

• The History of Islam
• Islamic Beliefs and Rituals
• Attitudes of an Ambassador
• How to Bridge the Gospel
• Practical Tools for Reaching Muslims

It Will Empower You As Fouad often says, “You don’t have to be an expert in Islam to reach Muslims. You need to be an expert on the gospel and simply know enough about Islam to build a bridge.” Alumni often walk away from Bridges One-Day saying “Wow…God can use me to reach Muslims.”

Discover how God can use YOU to have an eternal impact on Muslims.
