Steeve Derard

Praising God for His Goodness

Thanks for all your prayers and support for the school year. I have learned so much for the first year.

Last night of the 2015-2016 school year

 

We often commemorate firsts in life and forget to acknowledge lasts, so tonight we want to acknowledge Steeve's last night at STEP for this school year.

When Haiti Awake was founded in October of 2014, we knew one thing:  Steeve felt called of God to pursue his education.  And we knew that God was calling us to walk alongside him on the journey.

Last year Steeve went back to high school and graduated.  And then he was accepted into STEP for this school year.    We thank God for so many things as we look back.  And as we look forward.

Thank you to those of you who have supported Haiti Awake with your prayers, your time, your donations, and your finances.  Without you, this night would not have been possible.

 

My mouth will tell about Your righteousness and Your salvation all day long, though I cannot sum them up.
— Psalm 71:15

 

 

 

Happy 1st Birthday, Caleb!

We love the Derard family.  Simply love them.  They are part of OUR family.

And today, as they celebrate Caleb’s 1st birthday, we can’t help by think about the goodness of God in their lives over the past year.  God is faithful.

Caleb's first day at Bible school, March, 2016

For You, O LORD, have made me glad by what You have done, I will sing for joy at the works of Your hands.
How great are Your works, O LORD! Your thoughts are very deep.
— Psalm 92: 4-5
Standing on this mountaintop
Looking just how far we’ve come
Knowing that for every step
You were with us

Kneeling on this battle ground
Seeing just how much You’ve done
Knowing every victory
Was Your power in us

Scars and struggles on the way
But with joy our hearts can say
Yes, our hearts can say

Never once did we ever walk alone
Never once did You leave us on our own
You are faithful, God, You are faithful
Never once did we ever walk alone

Every step we are breathing in Your grace
Ever more we’ll be breathing out Your praise
You are faithful, God, You are faithful.
