First things first
Prayer is central to the success of missions. We devote an entire day to praying in strategic locations, avoiding being mechanical, but “stopping for the one” as the Lord directs. You will be provided with a prayer guideline. We will also have pre-prayer time to ask the Lord for words of knowledge and wisdom as we open ourselves to divine appointments. Expect the Supernatural!
Serving in word and deed, these opportunities are matched to a visiting teams specific skill set. The most important aspect is not the production, but the spirit of the service. Serve with love overflowing…. Your act of service can transform a heart!
Serving in the Arise Healing Center
Depending on your skill level, you may be asked to serve a variety of ways in the Arise Healing Center. More
skilled/qualified practitioners will be directly involved with patient assessment with oversight from the director of the Arise Healing Center. Translators will be available for those who need extensive dialogue with patients. Others will serve in the intake area, (vitals, heights, weights, measurements, arm
circumference as needed) pharmacy area (medication preps.) and the labor and delivery area (general assistance). The goal is to create an atmosphere of unity and a spirit of worship in the Healing Center that is optimal for divine and natural healing.
Variety of projects this year that include construction of the Arise Vicky Stommel Memorial Feeding Center, Centre de Vie Church Plant, church/school benches, shelving, painting, cleaning, community clean-ups, house fixes, etc. This will include working with cement, block, wood, paint, stain, minor electrical, plumbing, as appropriate. Construction projects are also based on project funds available or raised by the visiting team.
Healing Rooms Prayer Time
Praying for the sick, an open time of worship and prayer for those who are sick in the community. Visiting teams will be asked to lay on hands on the sick and pray and expect healing.
Feeding Center Times
A time of feeding the Unveiled Sponsorship children in addition to others in the area who suffer from malnourishment. Vitamin distribution, weights and measurements are taken at this time. Visiting teams engage in the feeding set-up, distribution, weights and measurements and loving
on kids. Teams are encouraged to bring 2500 Children’s general vitamins.
Worship Service- In Every Language
A corporate worship service in English, Creole, French and whatever other languages where we invite the Glory of the Lord to invade the earth. Spontaneous words and praying for the sick is encouraged.
Water Filtration Community Set-up or Follow-up
The Arise Team has a clean water initiative in the communities we serve with the Assemblies of God Haiti. We
dispense the Sawyer Point-1 Filter System for household water filtration. Visiting teams may engage in the dispensing of water filtration systems or re-checking the household system. A primary objective is always meeting the felt need while looking for divine opportunities.
Kidz Kapab Club
A weekly Kid’s Club that gathers each Friday at the Transformation Center to worship and apply God’s Word to their lives. Over 350 kids ages 4-16 gather each week. Visiting teams may engage in the lesson, a special song, skit and praying with children. The Unveiled sponsored children are a part of this group.
The Arise Haiti team places a strong emphasis on seeking the presence of God corporately and privately. We are convinced “we can’t give what we don’t have.” Our strength to minister effectively with the full power of the Gospel comes from times with the Father. It is our desire to be directed by the Father. In our corporate times we will be refreshed, unified and empowered for what unfolds during the day. Most sharing is spontaneous and Spirit led, although we may ask team members prepare a devotion at times.
