Wednesday was inspiring, to say the least. (Click here for the Convocation Address Manuscript) With the mountain setting the stage for the glory of God, Emmaus staff, students, visitors and the board of trustees came together to commit our first year students and new Master's students to His Word and His Work. A church from Cap-Haitian sent a fabulous men's singing group, the EBS worship team filled the campus with songs of praise, Dr. Ray Easley preached a...read more
Church Planting News
Seminary evangelism & church planting efforts around Haiti.
The church plant in DuFour (Dee-Foo) will be celebrating a year soon, and while I have rejoiced to receive so many pictures and powerful testimonies, (remember "The Narrow Path" or "God at Work?") I have not been. Once again, it's been one of those precious and precarious new plants that didn't need the distraction or the diversion of foreigners, frequently seen in Haiti as money-money-money-money-MO-NEY! and not as spiritual support. We didn't want to hinder all...
Oh, these are my (Stacey) favorite kinds of days. The ones where precious photos from somebody's cell phone come across my desk, and I can hear the water and I can feel the Spirit and I am touched with emotion, and I drop all the cash count forms and bank statements and cough drops and go find the story....wondering if it is as rich as it looks, and it always is. More. Praise the Lord. Many of you have been asking about Difou, one of the several areas where our...
Last week seven (not four!) individuals were baptized at the new EBS church plant at Difou! The church is growing quickly for a bright future. We have a pastor in place along with a church committee and a draft for a church constitution. They currently need: (1) land on which they can worship, (2) benches, (3) a small generator, and (4) a sound system for services. Give now! More stories from Difou to...

A year at EBS costs students about $500US. Because of the economic hardship in Haiti, EBS substantially subsidizes student tuition and fees so that students can afford it. As a result, we depend heavily on donors like you.
They always tell me that when my mom was pregnant, the whole pregnancy, every time she went to the doctor, they said there was no sign of life. The doctors told her I was dead, and everyone told her to have an abortion. For some reason, she always says that she wouldn’t let me go. When the time came for her to deliver, I was born feet first, and I was very sick and weak, but I was alive.
I'm not quite sure how to wrap words around this, but you know me...I'll try! Today I was sitting down with Camille, one of my favorite first year students...soft-spoken, clear-eyed, sweet-smiled, slow to speak and always visibly rolling his words over in his mind before he speaks them. He was telling me his story. Start to finish, highlights and prayers, dreams and visions. I've been asking a lot of questions of students lately and gathering up lots of little...
