From cover to cover, the bible is filled with example after example of God transforming disaster into something glorious. The Apostle Paul was wrongfully imprisoned, but because of it, he testified before Caesar. Joseph’s rat-bag brothers sold him into slavery, and because of it, Israel grew into a mighty nation.

Marc Honorat was born the son of a voodoo priest, and became a slave child at five years old. What the devil meant to destroy Marc, the Lord will use to defeat the poverty, hopelessness and demonic oppression of a nation. From the ashes of a broken people, God will cause Haiti to arise and shine for His glory.

After nearly seven years of hellish existence, young Marc was rescued from slavery. One of his brothers heard the stories of his abuse and came to investigate. When he saw how his little brother suffered, he took him away and placed him in an orphanage. While life in the orphanage was not easy, anything was preferable to the hell of his former mistress. At least he was given basic clothing and food.

Education is not free in Haiti. If a child attends school, someone must pay for it. Marc’s prayers were answered when the Lord put it on someone’s heart to sponsor Marc’s education. He poured his heart into his studies. Despite missing the first six years of school, he graduated high school on time.

Marc felt God’s call to ministry. He prayed that the Lord would open the doors to attend bible school on the neighboring island of Jamaica. God provided yet another miracle and a sponsor came forward to pay for his continued education. It was there at Bible school that he met Lisa. It was love at first sight. Within eight days, they were engaged to be married.

On Monday, I will share about the founding of the Haiti Arise ministry.

I'm not part of CW...Curm, you ok?

Father God, thank You for allowing us to come to You in prayer. Thank You for Your faithful love. We come to You on bowed knee for You are Sovereign. You are worthy of all praises. Only You have the mighty hand that can do anything and everything...things that are beyond the scope of our little minds. Lord, I plead with You in humility, please wrap Your arms of comfort around David. Please protect him from the traps of the enemy. Lay Your hand on him and give him Your strength. Raise him up. He and Marc are serving You, Lord, with diligence. Reward their humble hearts with Your awesome blessings. Protect them Father. Keep them from evil. Heal David's body and renew his mind with Your power. Holy Spirit please fill David. Be with him and comfort him. I ask these things in the name of my sweet Jesus, Amen.

Thank you to all of you who have left comments in my absence. Whatever it was that happened has left me very weak. It may take me a few days before I can visit your blogs again, but I do surely look forward to it.

God bless you all!
