I must tell Jesus

Haitian Staff Praying and Singing
Due to widespread public demonstrations protesting government spending, Haiti has been in unrest for the past couple weeks. There was a period of time where roads were blocked and schools were closed due to a lack of public safety. The protestors were organized and their goal was to cause the Haitian president to resign. On Monday, February 18, things calmed down in Haiti because Prime Minister Jean-Henry Ceant declared that he would investigate how the government was spending money.

From all corners of the campus they came – security guards, teachers, shop workers, administrators, pastors, church leaders, members of the yard crew, drivers, and clinic workers.

They came with one purpose in mind: to pray for the situation impacting their country, their ministry, and their families.  

The Haitian Lifeline staff lifted up their voices to God in prayer and songs. When Haitians sing, it is with a full voice and it’s directly from their heart.

Among the hymns they sang in Creole was, “I Must Tell Jesus.”

“I must tell Jesus all of my trials;

I cannot bear these burdens alone;

In my distress He kindly will help me;

He ever loves and cares for his own.

I must tell Jesus, I must tell Jesus,

I cannot bear these burdens alone,

I must tell Jesus, I must tell Jesus.

Jesus can help me, Jesus alone.”

What a powerful testimony. In a time of crisis and great need last week, these dear friends and co-workers called out to the one who said, “In this world you will have trouble, but take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

May we all join them in praying for Haiti. Let's continue pray for their safety, their families, and that God will use them to help others see Jesus as the one who can bring hope.
