Rehoboth

Today we had the privilege to join in service and worship with Pastor Jean and his church family. We loved hearing testimonials and experiences of the Haitian culture in Haiti and how that has shaped those of the church in America.

We loved hearing Pastor introduce us as family and welcome us back for years to come!
