Matthew 28:18-21

Jesus said, “ All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Therefore go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them
in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

 

As God’s children we are all called to the Great Commission Jesus gave us in Matthew 28:18-21. Where ever God has planted us, together as the family of God it is our corporate mission to spread the good news of Jesus Christ within our own community and to all the world.  Some are called to leave their homeland and family and go to other nations.

 

PHCC  has been blessed to partner in a small way with the following missionaries and the ministries God has called them to in other nations. To read more about these dedicated servants of God, check out Ray Phillps encouraging book, Tracing the Fingerprint of God.

Rod and Debbie serve with Harvest International in Haiti. They began a weekly ministry to the children of one of the poorest areas in Les Cayes, holding a Sunday School and feeding program for about 1500 children every Sunday. In 2009 they were given  the large camp property and began work on the Camp Mahanaim project.

This quote from Rod and Debbie Wray, is an encouragement to all of God’s children.

“Luke 16:10 says that: ‘He who is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much.’

It seems that God doesn't necessarily always choose the people who are most qualified or skilled (we certainly aren't), but rather, those who are faithful. If you truly want to be used by God, be faithful and honest in even the smallest of matters, and little by little God will entrust you with the "Great Riches." Each Sunday when we shake hands with about 1000 little children we thank God for entrusting us with the Great Riches of Haiti.”
