Bondye ap Tande Lapriye, God Hears Prayers

January 31 2017

This month, you have read stories and seen photos of the exciting things God is doing through the ministry of SHEEP (Southern Haiti Evangelism and Education Program), One Mission Society’s child sponsorship program which provides tuition, books, and supplies to school-aged children in southern Haiti.

Through this compassion ministry, coordinated by Men for Missions and run by the OMS-related Emmaus Fellowship of Churches in Haiti, we desire to make disciples of Jesus Christ, equipping and inspiring them to share their faith with family and friends, multiplying dynamic communities of believers, which is right in line with the OMS mission statement:

“By God’s grace, One Mission Society unites, inspires, and equips Christians to make disciples of Jesus Christ, multiplying dynamic communities of believers around the world.”

“Bondye ap tande lapriye, Chak maten, midi, ni aswe, Bondye ap reponn lapriye” translated from Haitian Creole to English means, “God hears prayers—morning, noon and night. God answers prayer.” This simple children’s prayer is a good reminder to us that God indeed hears and answers our prayers.

Would you join us in praying for the SHEEP ministry?

  • Pray for the Haitian children attending College Mixte Evangelique de Gressier, that they will understand and desire to know Jesus personally.
  • Pray for the children to be witnesses to their families and communities.
  • Pray for each child’s physical and emotional health.
  • Pray for wisdom and guidance for the teachers and staff.
  • Pray for more sponsors.

If you have not yet responded financially … remember that by committing to two years of sponsorship, you will get the first year free, with the challenge grant made available through a generous donor.

Please contact our office at sheep@onemissionsociety.org or call 317.888.3333 for more information or to start your sponsorship.
