Visit to Jako Church

Today Pastor Baker was able to visit the Jako church affiliated with the Baptist Haiti Mission.  This is a small church in the mountains outside of Port-au-Prince with a congregation of about 30 people.  Their church building is made from sticks and plastic and they have a couple of benches and rocks for people to sit on.  As more people came to the service today, the preacher brought in more rocks for them to sit on.
It was a great encouragement to see these people worshiping God together even amongst such simple conditions.  God is at work and visiting churches like this encourage us to see how God is working even in small remote villages like Jako.

Pastor Baker was asked to preach once he got there.  Jeff (one of our drivers) was willing to help translate.
