Cuba update 2022
We sent money to buy bibles for many Haiti descent. They reported 75 baptisms and 80 baptisms. We have 68,000 Haitian descendants in Cuba. Some are hungry to read the word of God, . Many obeyed the gospel. In Cuba some of the northern places have a local tradition where the preacher delivers the message sitting down. Also, if you wish to pay the preacher you have to pay him privately or the congregation will expect the preachers to share the money with them .Money is needed to help buy bibles and many Christians who are in very bag share lack of foods, medecine.We plan to go back in 2023 we need help for them .Arnold will pay his way, he needs money for the church , preachers and people.

Arnold was shoot and wounded by robbers in 2009 when he was returning from the bank after picking up money to bury the wife of elder. In 2010 he was almost killed by the earthquake and Teresa his wife fell from the third floor to the first, which broke her leg and hand. again in 2011 he almost lost his life in front of the church by a drunk driver.
Arnold Garcon and his wife Teresa are Haitians who speaks English, French, Spanish and Creole. Arnold is a graduate from David Lipscomb University and from Tennessee State University and Emmanuel Theological Seminary. He holds a Doctorate in Ministry.
In order to minister the gospel in Haiti, Arnold has escaped many dangerous and difficulty situations. He has gone without sleep, food, has traveled many rocky roads, has been shot, and was almost in a plane crash. He is continually attacked by false teachers and so called brethren with lies because of jealousy and envy.To raise money many so called preachers and elders in mission field they had to destroy others preachers and elders sometimes they did not know and never them. matt7;12 None of this has moved Arnold because the attackers have done more to Jesus (to advance the gospel then harm) than Arnold. Arnold and Teresa survived the devastating earthquake of 2010. We did not receive a penny from any government , organization , any Haitian church, we did with love of some Christians like you and investment Arnold did for 35years. we are self supported,
we do many things to support us. like taxi driver, Farming, Investment, and construction.
Many denominations are asking us for literature, bibles, and bible courses. Fortunately, they are using all this material to teach in their congregations. The radio program reached more people then ever. several hundred were baptize each year. we reach them by social media. we have in Air for 20 years, we need funds to keep us on air
Voodoo Temple Ministry
Arnold and others have gone to many voodoo temples in Haiti to distribute bibles, literature, and bible courses. It is amazing to see so many voodoo priest hungry to read the word of God. We have conducted some studies by telephone, email, and text messages. Some have been baptized and most of the people we talk to want a bible.
Haiti and Dominican Republic Border Ministry
Thousands of people go to Haiti and Dominican Republic border to a market every Monday and Friday to buy and sell, for business, voodoo rituals, and many other things. We go to distribute literature because many are looking for something to read and everyone want a bibles Some will pull from others and some will fight to get a bible. Arnold receives many calls, e-mails and next messages from these people for baptisms. If you can help us get some money for bibles or if you know any company who could help us, we would be very happy. There are three groups of people at the border; Haitians who speaks Creole, those who speaks French, and Dominicans who speak Spanish. The Creole bible is $11 the French is $7, and the Spanish is $10. If we had many thousands of bibles, it still would not be enough.
Another way that we help in this region is to help sick family members go see a doctor. We use the family relationships as a opening to preach the gospel. This work allows us to continue to build relationships and when family members get sick they come to us for help with burial arrangements. In some cases we are able to baptize them.
Unfortunately, the mission field is ripe with corruption. In our work we come across many people that should be our allies but have become enemies. As Paul experienced in I Tim 4:10 some have forsaken our work. We ask for continued prayers and God's wisdom. May God help them to remember and live by Matt 7:12 "So Whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the prophets."(ESV)
Thanks be to God we are safe And Covid-19 Negative! Many Haitians observers have reported infections from the virus and many have died in Haiti, Dominican Republic, and surrounding countries. We have sent donations to help many families see the Doctor and help with Burial expenses.
Even though the pandemic has slowed our movement, we still receive many request for bibles. We are excited by this tragedy because in moments of weakness people seek god. After the 2010 earthquake we baptized more people than we normally do. We have seen a similar trend since the beginning of Pandemic, more people are requesting the word of God. People are requesting prayers, literature, and bible studies. We THANK YOU for all the moral, spiritual, and monetary support.
