Dom Sciortino, Paul Liephart, and pastor Larry Cunnings made the leap of faith to come and live in the community of Pasbwadom at the end of 2013. They arrived two days before the end of the year and stayed until January 5th, I think.
They did an amazing job of immediately blending in to the ASAPH community. It was really an impressive and blessed thing to see. One of our goals for the trip was for the 3 foreigners to get to know 10 Haitians because I believe Haitian people are more people than Haitian. We see pictures of people and feel so different, but we're really so much the same. Cultural differences often create walls, and our goal was to remove those walls so that people could minister to each other in the name of Jesus.
The guys at my house immediately got attached to the humble Americans. The day after they flew home, we gathered around the kitchen table and laughed over the many fun and 'real' moments we had shared together. They said the visit ended way too soon, and they look forward to another.
Dom, Paul and Pastor shined the light of Jesus into the community where ASAPH ministers. That is ministry. That is our mission on this planet. That is the focus of ASAPH Teaching Ministry...presenting Christ in a rural Haitian community one lesson at a time.
