The l’estere Christian church has been planted by an all Haitian team under the direction of Pastor Lavaud Sauveur Cadevil.
l’Estere is a very unique place; this small community is located 160 kms to the northern regions of the capital Port-Au-Prince, and 14 kms to the city of Gonaives. But our Church is located about 3 miles from the bridge of l'Estere, about 11 miles to Gonaives, 1 mile after the Government High School (Lycee) of l'Estere.
The land of l’Estere could be productive, but no irrigation system while it rains less and less. Since the people there in order to educate and feed their children rely exclusively on the production of the land then you can understand that we have a big problem in our hands.
Promiscuity and immorality has given l’Estere a repulsive reputation. The word of the Lord need to be preached in an area of l’Estere such great spiritual needs. Please keep praying for the church of l’Estere. At l’Estere, when people are desperate they will hang on anything they can catch, and many times in Haiti voodoo and the voodoo priests are the only thing that permeates any substance for hope and they hang on to them even though most of the time fear and deception accompany such situations. The children are afraid, the adults are uncertain, and the voodoo priest reigns unmercifully.
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hinder the truth in unrighteousness. Because that which is known of God is manifest in them; for God manifested it unto them.
For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity; that they may be without excuse: because that, knowing God, they glorified him not as God, neither gave thanks; but became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God for the likeness of an image of corruptible man, and of birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts unto uncleanness, that their bodies should be dishonored among themselves: for that they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.”
We praise the Lord for being faithful to us, and He will be faithful to whoever helps this ministry move forward. The Area of l'Estere has no professionals schools, no Electricity, No purified water, no Hospital, many children in l’Estere are living with no mother, no father and nothing at all. So the community of l’Estere is devastated by hungry people.
We hold services twice weekly in our church. On Wednesday and Friday we have Bible Study and prayer meeting, and regular services Sunday morning and evening.
