Now 53, Phaliemy has been married to a pastor since she was 17. She thought she would be able to begin sharing the Good News when she and her husband moved to Haiti’s West province to start a church. She and her husband, William, found out quickly how difficult it can be to plant a church without finances and resources. They knew they could not give up, and their determination and passion to expand God’s kingdom would be the fuel to keep moving forward.
“I read about the Church Planter Training ministry, and we signed up immediately,” she exclaims. “I knew it would be meaningful for our church, and for me!”
After they completed Church Planter Training, their church grew to nearly 200 members. This is particularly significant because most Christian churches in Haiti struggle to retain their members because of the lack of available resources. “Seeing how we have been able to grow, gives us even more strength to keep sharing the Gospel. But we could not do it without your help. Thank you for providing the Bibles and training that help us to grow our churches!” she says.
