On May 16, 2019, the dream that in essence birthed the ministry of Haiti Awake came to fruition. Steeve Derard graduated from seminary.
We praise God for His work in Steeve’s life, and we wanted to share what Steeve wrote on the morning of his graduation:
I want to start by expressing my gratitude towards God for His faithfulness, His abundant grace and His unending love.
This is a dream that God had put in my heart 6 years ago, and it becomes a reality today.
And, yes, after 4 years God has done it. I do not complete it with my own strength, but "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me"(Phil 4:13).
This is the end of a short journey, and a longer one will begin. But I have no doubt that He who has begun a good work in me will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ (Phil 1:6).
I want to thank all of you, friends and family, who have been praying for me.
I am so thankful for Haiti Awake and my family who supported me in this hard journey.
Thank you very much!
- Steeve Derard
We are anticipating great things in the days ahead, as Steeve is able to fully devote his time and energy to being the Director of Church Ministry Development at Haiti Awake.
Glwa pou Bondye.
