"Nothing Can Stop Me From Doing the Lord's Work"

Written by Pastor Eddy Magloire; translated by Raynald Metilus, Haiti Together Manager

Greetings to you in the name of Jesus.

Pastor EddyMy name is Eddy Magloire and I am the pastor of Lifeline Christian Church in Mahothière, a section of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. I am married and have two daughters. I am pleased to share my testimony with you on how God has used me to do His work in my community. 

I was born in Port-au-Prince. My parents were not Christians. Although they did not believe in God, as a child I believed that there was a true God. 

When I was six, my mother abandoned me. My childhood it was very difficult. People in my neighborhood took care of me until, at age 15, I moved to an orphanage. This orphanage was in Mahothière and was run by missionaries. They were godly people who taught me the Word of God and how to become a Christian. There, I was educated and began to have a great passion for serving God. After a time, I got baptized and decided to live my life for Christ.  

Eventually, Lifeline Christian Mission took ownership of the orphanage. They continued to do the same crucial work the missionaries had been doing. Lifeline helped pay my tuition at a theology school when I was having difficulty paying; they helped put me on a path to success. These missionaries had such an impact on my life that I decided I wanted to be a pastor. I wanted to devote myself to doing the same work for others. 

I am the current pastor of Lifeline Christian Church in Mahothière. My mission is to serve and save souls for God. In my ministry, we do our best to help people reach their potential in life by teaching them the Bible and how to live a godly life for God. In the community, my ministry encounters many problems like unemployment and young people having difficulty going to school; but we live as brothers and sisters and support one another however we can. 

To accomplish this mission, God moves through us in tremendous ways. Our church has a program that offers a free meal after Sunday services to church families who are in need. We give lectures to our young people to motivate them to be good citizens for their country and to trust God. The members of the church are the ones who support these initiatives; this makes me happy because they believe in collaboration. Christ wants us to live as one family.

Even with all the problems we face in Haiti, nothing can stop me from doing the Lord's work and the work I am doing in my community. God has recently been teaching me to more fully trust Him in times of uncertainty. His love for us never falters. He is a good father and will always be by our side.
