EASTER SERVICE - PASTOR OCTAVE

video

Today was a special Easter service at Pastor Octave's church, which is located across the street from us. Several choirs sang today. The service lasted for 3 1/2 hours and at the end of the service a meal was served for everyone who attended. Different pastors participated in the service. This short video is part of a song translated into english which means: "Do you want to go, to my Father's house?". It was great to see the joy inside this church. I have seen in other churches the cliques that are formed in congregations. If you are part of their inside circle you get invited to activities and if you aren't you get ignored. It is good to see a poor haitian church welcoming everyone without distinction. This is how a church should be. Pray for the missionary community here in Haiti. Haiti is known as the republic of NGO's. It is also the republic of missionaries, and I have seen first-hand when people decide to exclude someone and that it hurts. I wish that all the reformed missionaries could have been in church today. Pray for unity in the reformed churches here in Haiti, amongst the congregations, and amongst the missionaries. Where there is shunning, let there be fellowship instead. That is my prayer for today and every day until it is a reality. I will post it on my blog when it happens :)
