The CRC of Haiti has roughly 3,000 members in 48 churches.

St. Yves explained that four of the congregations’ church buildings were damaged. With the help of the CRC, he said, two churches will be repaired and two will be rebuilt.

St. Yves went on to explain the importance of Christian education and the efforts to minimize the influence of voodoo throughout Haiti.

Rev. Bruce Persenaire, vice president of Synod 2012, responded, “It [is] remarkable that even though buildings have toppled and infrastructure has been torn apart, the gospel is still strong and you are bringing the gospel in a holistic manner.”

In closing his greeting from Haiti, St. Yves said, “Thank you for your financial support. Thank you for your partnership. Thank you for your prayer. May the Lord Almighty bless you abundantly.”
