April 2021 Update
The Haiti Bible Institute is moving full speed ahead! Module 7 in March was a glorious success, and we are greatly encouraged at the progress our students and Haitian teachers are making in their quest to learn and teach truth. I am so thankful for the Scripture that God gave us to direct our ministry and do His work in Haiti: 2 Tim. 2:2. And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. This verse has led to changed lives for the glory of God. Men and being prepared for ministry and learning truth that brings people to salvation and believers to maturity. Many of our graduates report
that their churches are growing both spiritually and numerically. Some of their churches
have even sent men full time to preach the gospel and plant churches in the small villages.
One of our star Haitian teachers is Franklin Robert. In Module 7 he taught two classes:
Joshua and the Book of Acts. The students responded well and remarked how great it was
to receive Bible teaching in their own language. Franklin graduated from the HBI Masters
Program in 2018, and he has taught in modules 6 and 7. He is an excellent teacher and takes the responsibility of teaching God’s Word very seriously. Using Haitian teachers that we have trained is the direction that we intended the school to take from the very beginning.
Now, after twelve years, we are seeing that plan coming to fruition. Presently, five men who
have graduated from HBI are preparing courses to teach in Cohort 4 starting next year. We
will be using all of them to teach courses and train the next class of pastors. Pray for them
as they develop their courses and prepare to teach.
God has blessed our school with excellent translators. Our head of translation is a former
HBI graduate, Spencer Bazile. Spencer has worked faithfully for HBI translating for every
American professor and preparing course materials for the students in French. Without this
valuable ministry, we would not be able to communicate in Haiti!
Graduation Day is coming in October 2021. After four long years of study in the Word of God, our students in Cohort 3 will reap the reward of their faithful study: they will earn their Associates Degree in Biblical Studies. We will graduate all 15 men, and we are happy to report that all of them are pursuing ministry. Some are pastors, some are Bible teachers in their churches, and some are planting churches in small villages in the remote provinces. Others have founded Bible training schools in their churches and are currently teaching pastors the same truth we taught them. Still others
are being prepared to teach Bible courses in HBI for the students of Cohort 4 which starts in 2022. On Target Ministry is making a great impact for the cause of Christ in Haiti. Good news! Already $4,400 has been received for the cost of Module 8, the Graduation Module. Praise God for this blessing! The total need is $20,000, so we have a great start. Please pray about sending a gift to help us continue our mission in Haiti. It is faithful and generous givers like you that make all this possible. Thank you for your support!
