June Update 2024
True ministry is demonstrated by perseverance and remaining faithful. The CMSH Mission continues its work, thanks to the unwavering support of our dedicated contributors. We praise God for all His blessings that keep our ministry alive. We are especially grateful for our Board of Directors and our President, Pastor Jim Johnston, a great servant of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
We have faced many challenges over the years, but we continue to serve the people of Haiti. We have established church congregations in many cities across the country. While there are dark times, we know the bright light of Jesus is always with us. Evil may be present, but it cannot stand against Jesus, our Savior.


Currently, our schools are closed and will reopen in September 2024. It is always difficult to pay our teachers. To keep our churches functioning, we need preachers to spread the Gospel of Christ. Some preachers need transportation to reach their congregations. This month, we planned to purchase a motorcycle for each preacher. Each motorcycle costs $1,500, and we hope to buy one for another preacher in the coming months, in Jesus Christ's name. Amen.


Pastor Jim attempted to secure a loan from PNC Bank for $20,000 to buy motorcycles, but we were denied. This is a significant challenge and sacrifice, especially for me and my family. Please join us in prayer, asking God in Jesus Christ's name for this provision. We hope to have a praise report in our next update. I constantly pray for our beloved supporters and their families, asking God for protection and blessings, both physically and spiritually.
I am also facing dental problems and need help. Speaking requires teeth, and as you know, family, you are the ones Jesus Christ has put in contact with us. Please pray for me. God is good and loving, despite the persecution we face from many evils in Haiti. My wife and I remain steadfast in our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Our congregations have lost many members, and many families suffer due to these losses.
The Kenyan military forces have finally arrived in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, to help with the gangs. We hope mission trips can restart soon. The Port-Au-Prince airport was closed for three months but has now reopened. Remember, every second week of March is the gathering time for all CMSH churches. We perform repairs on church buildings, particularly those damaged by the 2021 earthquake, which also damaged many benches. We are currently working on those repairs.
My wife Leonie sends her greetings. We hope this update is clear for all. If you have any questions, please contact us using the phone numbers or email provided above.


Blessings,


Pastor Jim Johnston
