PASTOR ELYSEE JOSEPH AND HIS FAMILY ARE TAKING THE GOSPEL AND A "HEALTH FAIR" TO HAITI.
Pastor Elysee Joseph is usually a soft spoken man but he is a man who "walks the talk." Pastor Elysee is the Field Director of Haiti for Caribbean Vision Ministries, President of several non-profit organizations in Haiti, and Pastor of Eglise Evangelique de la Paix in Lauderdale Lakes, Florida. He and his wife Yolette have a heart for ministering to Haitians in the U.S. and especially in Haiti. This summer from August 4-11 they and their three adult children will head a GO2Haiti Team to minister in the Cap Haitien area of Haiti.
Daughter Loudrige will head the Team as they host a Health Fair on the campus of House of Hope Orphanage in Devarin, Haiti. This will be a new endeavor for the Joseph family as they seek to bring local volunteer Haitian medical personnel to the Hope campus for five days to share knowledge of health practices to the people in the surrounding communities. Pastor Elysee will head the Team in the evening as they use students from Grace Theological Institute and Pastors from the local community to host evangelistic meetings at Grace Church on Hope campus. We are excited about the possibilities of this week.
THE HEALTH FAIR WILL SHARE KNOWLEDGE, PRACTICES AND AIDS THAT WILL HELP IN CHANGING THE HEALTH OF THOSE WHO ATTEND AND THEIR FAMILIES.
Many people in Haiti are uneducated and illiterate and many have never had any instruction in hygienic practices. Most of the people who attend this Health Fair will probably never have seen a doctor before. Many will have experienced the death of a young member of their family in recent days or years. Many will be suffering from health problems that could have been prevented by simple hygiene practices. Devarin is a very poor rural area of Haiti. The Fair which will run from 9AM to 3PM for five days will share seminars and expertise instruction by local volunteer Haitian medical personnel. There will be no cost to those who attend the Fair. The workshops will include the following topics:
PERSONAL HYGIENE****DENTAL HYGIENE****EYE CARE****NUTRITION****SEX EDUCATION****
HEALTH AND WELLNESS (MEDICAL EXAM INCLUDED)****ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITIES
