This month, I (Lynn) have the pleasure of introducing my husband by his newest title, Pastor Lance Anderson. Yesterday, Lance was officially received as a licensed pastor with the Assemblies of God fellowship. Lance has been taking classes for two years and completed two sessions of internships leading up to this new title. He also had to complete a licensing exam in November.
I am extremely proud of him, as this required countless hours of reading, studying and report writing. He has worked very hard and he has put in many extra hours to complete all of the requirements.
Becoming a licensed pastor will really help us as we continue to serve as the Mission Directors for Haiti Care Mission. With the title of pastor, more churches and schools in Haiti will be accessible to us. Most people in leadership appreciate knowing that the people who are coming in to speak with their congregation and children are well prepared and trained. It is our prayer that this will open up more doors in Haiti.
It is also our prayer that this will help us to broaden our scope of churches in the United States. We hope this will bring increased opportunities at churches to share about the mission of Haiti Care Mission and increase awareness of how others can get involved.
We are very pleased to make this announcement as we feel there will be great increase brought to Haiti Care Mission through this accomplishment. Although, Lance’s holds a license through the Assemblies of God, Haiti Care Mission will continue to operate as a non-denominational ministry.
This spring we are already planning for two trips to Haiti. Lance will be leaving for Haiti during the first week of February. He will be serving alongside of Pastor Tom Brumbley and completing projects for their ministry. Lance will also be helping to prepare the connections and projects for our next trip.
In April, we will travel to Haiti as a family and spend 5 days serving. We are not sure of all of the details yet but we will keep you posted as they develop. Please pray for both of these trips as we long to get back on the ground and get back with the people we love.
If you have any items prepared that you would like us to bring to Haiti on the April trip, please mail them to us prior to March 30th so we have ample time to prepare and pack the items. Thank you very much for your service and hard work.
· Praise God for faithful supporters who share in the work of Haiti Care.
· Praise the Lord for His provision and direction for this ministry.
· Praise God for divine connections that He continues to bring to us.
· Please pray for Lance’s February trip to Haiti. Please pray for favor, divine connections and safety.
· Please pray for the people of Haiti. Pray for safety, protection and peace.
Living victoriously in Christ, The Andersons
