December 11, 2011 was not your typical Sunday for Williamson Church. Williamson Church was completely damaged to the point of needing to be rebuilt after the 2010 earthquake. There have been a variety of pressing needs since the time of the earthquake and BHM has been working diligently to meet these needs. It was not more than 3 months ago that the work to rebuild Williamson Church started.
Many long hot days were spent rebuilding Williamson Church. It is fair to say the work was not done in vain and December 11, 2011 will hold a special place in the hearts of the people of Williamson Church. This church places a high priority on reaching out in other communities to evangelize and start new churches. BHM Field Director, Pastor Baker, and his family along with other leaders from the Fermathe area traveled to Williamson to be a part of this re-dedication celebration. It was indeed a very FULL service of praise.
The service began at 9 a.m. and concluded at 1:30 p.m. There were special music groups that performed from surrounding churches. A message of thanksgiving was presented by Pastor Edrice Romelus, Pastor of Thomassin Conservative Baptist Church. Towards the middle of the service a plaque of appreciation was presented to Pastor Baker and BHM. Pastor Jean Claude Smith, Pastor of the Williamson Conservative Baptist Church, acknowledged the many needs of the people of Haiti. He was quick to state that he was incredibly thankful that God had chosen to bless his church family through the gifts of the supporters of BHM for a new building. Spirits were high and the name of God was praised yesterday at Williamson Church.Thank you, our sponsors, for your generous giving that enables BHM to assist pastors and churches in Haiti. Continue to remember Williamson Church as they seek to share the good news throughout Haiti. Also, pray for the variety of other churches in need of a building after the destruction of the devastating 2010 earthquake.
