Ways to Serve our National Church 

  • Hospital Lumiere at a Critical Juncture - There is a critical  missionary staffing shortage which threatens our ability to continue management of the  hospital. A minimum of four important missionary roles must be filled in Nursing, Facilities,  Administration, and Operations by mid 2021. Without that, HarvestCall will need to find another organization to take over hospital operations.  Our plea to the church: 

    • 1. If you have been contemplating a desire to potentially serve as a missionary but have  not contacted HarvestCall yet, now is the time! Email amiller@harvestcall.org today.

    • 2. If you know someone who would be a fit for one of the open roles, please encourage  them to prayerfully consider applying. 

    • 3. Please pray! If the church is praying, we can have confidence that God’s will be done,  no matter which way this ends. 

To be clear, whether HarvestCall continues to be contractually responsible for the operations of  Hospital Lumiere or not, our financial support will continue. Your ongoing donations are still  needed.  For more information about this situation and the open positions, please visit  www.hospitallumiere.org

Thank You from the Delgrange Family - Words cannot ever begin to express the deep  heartfelt thanks we have towards our friends and family we have in Christ.  God truly watched over our family that night and granted His protective mercies over all the children.  Craig is beginning to move about a bit more each day but is very dependent upon his dad, employees, and our sons for all the heavy labor that comes with his carpentry business. Kailee has begun the process of physical therapy to regain her strength and lessen the intensity of the headaches.  She had some heavy impact on her and would love continued prayers as she tries to move forward each day….(for more info, the  thank you note is on the bulletin board)
