1997, a bright eyed 17 year old named Philip Peters left the farm of Indiana
for a 3 week mission trip to Jamaica with Teen Mania. The teams hit the
mission field during the day and spent the evenings at Caribbean Christ
For the Nations Institute in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
While there he met a Haitian student named Jean Gerald
Lafleur. As Philip went back to finish secondary school and attend university
their friendship stayed in tact. He would send CDs and letters; and as
the world progressed to internet the communication continued as it was
a Kingdom Partnership.
In July 2004 Philip really felt stirred
to bring a group of 20 year olds to visit and assist Pastor in ministry.
“Every time I spoke with someone there just seemed to be a
need to do mission work and with Pastor Lafleur’s promotion
of the 365 beaches in Antigua; it wasn't hard to pull a team together”
|I understood that Pastor has a special
heart for Haiti, his homeland. Although many people discouraged me
from going there, God was constantly calling me to take a trip to
Jacmel Haiti in 2005. Having obeyed the voice of God, I am now hooked
on the country and plan to lead more teams to Jacmel.
Working with Pastor Lafleur, Elsa and Jeremiah,
I see God and I see how everything that I do can and will affect
