I remember when I was a kid and a Baptist church congregation started in Cayes - Jacmel my municipality of Haiti.
There was always a lot of rivalry between the heads of the various evangelical churches in the community. This rivalry has created divisions among members of these churches and that had a negative impact on the spiritual life of the people.
I stopped going to church for that situation, but today I think that was a pretext used by the devil to keep me away from the path of God.
In my reflection in my teens, I said I could not attend any of these churches because they were all working for Satan because of the division that existed between them. If they really were working by the same God they should unite and cooperate with each other so that the Kingdom of the Lord could progress in the community.
Years later, God has performed a miracle in the community because many of his servants, saddened by this situation, implored His intervention.

Truck for San Juan, Guatemala

I learned on my first trip to Guatemala not to take the road system in the United States for granted. I must admit the truck ride made me motion sick as we descended a mountain with 18 hairpin turns, deep ruts and potholes. Our destination was the Luke Society ministry in San Juan.
These are daily driving conditions for Dr. Jose Israel Hernandez as he ministers to San Juan and 13 surrounding villages. We learned recently his truck broke down and it’s been difficult and time-consuming to travel between villages.
Dr. Hernandez manages a medical clinic in San Juan and also oversees a staff of nine who travel between the adjacent mountain communities. The change they are bringing to the area is evident everywhere. Continue reading...
