One of the churches Borderless works with in Chicagoland is Eglise Evangelique Bethel. Most of the congregation members have roots in Haiti. Pastor Franco also helps lead a ministry called Hope for Haitian Youth and Elderly (HOHAYE).
Haiti was already suffering from extreme poverty before the devastating earthquake in 2010. HOHAYE, which is about to celebrate its 15th anniversary, has been bringing Kingdom transformation in Haiti through many different avenues, including health clinics, a trade school, sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with words and actions, and training church leaders.
Praise the Lord for the hearts of compassion He has given to many for the people of Haiti and for the leadership which Pastor Franco and other Haitian-Americans can provide in steering ministry efforts. Praise God that the Body of Christ is sharing its resources and skills to offer hope to those in difficult circumstances.
Pray that many families will know the power, provision and compassion of the Lord Jesus through HOHAYE’s ministry. Pray that godly leaders of influence in various spheres of society will be raised up as a result of the education and training offered.
Pray that as people in the States travel to Haiti to work with HOHAYE, they will encounter the Living God in fresh ways and embrace His purposes for their lives. Pray that God will make a way for the anniversary celebration dinner on June 4 to spur on spiritual revival in Haiti.
