A reported 40,127 Haitians have made professions of faith in Jesus Christ since the Jan. 12 earthquake hit the impoverished nation, according to pastors and the director of missions of the Confraternite Missionaire Baptiste d’Haiti (CMBH).
“Haiti is ripe for a spiritual movement from God,” said Craig Culbreth, director of the Florida Baptist Convention Partnership Missions Department, which coordinates the work of the CMBH, upon his Feb. 22 return from Port-au-Prince.
“For me it was a New Testament expression of what it looks like when the Spirit of God shows up,” Culbreth said. “I have never seen anything like it.”
The CMBH is the Florida Baptist Convention-funded partnership of nearly 900 Haitian Baptist churches serving across Haiti. Through this partnership the Florida Convention employs seven indigenous missionaries in six regions in the nation.
Since the earthquake the CMBH pastors have distributed 51 tons of rice proving 437,750 servings to Haitians in both Port-au-Prince and outlying areas where refugees have fled. Additional feedings are expected.
