Haiti pastor receives new house

Pastor Paul's home.

An 11-member Work & Witness team from West Virginia, USA, arrived in Haiti May 8 to finish constructing a parsonage for Pastor Paul Oulus and his family.

The group worked quickly to finish construction and present the house May 14. They started work in the early morning, painting the ceiling and building the furniture with help from the local congregation. A stove and propane tank were also provided to Pastor Paul's wife, who previously cooked with charcoal.

The property has a well built by the Haiti Water Project and sponsored by a group from West Virginia, but the water from this well is not safe to drink, so the team also provided the family with a water purifier.

The leadership and the team shared a special time with the family worshipping the Lord together.

Pastor Paul Oulus and his family now have a new home thanks to Darin and Tonya Kucey, Haiti Work & Witness coordinators, the U.S. W&W teams serving in Haiti, and the local congregation who participated in the construction.
