THE HARVEST GEORGETOWN STORY
God led us to Harvest in 2011, and right away we got plugged into the different ministries, from worship to adult ministries. One of the things that impacted us while serving is the level of high impact worship and sound preaching pointed us vertical for the first time in our lives. We were so encouraged by the way we saw others serving. We knew we really want to be a part of that.
Monique and I met in Cuba in 2000 and our marriage was shaken by the reality of two different cultures and languages. But at Harvest we understood that God is above every culture and language, and with unceasing prayer our marriage grew stronger. What has really changed for us is our prayer life. Praying together daily has changed our relationship at the deepest and most significant level. We are now more open with each other, our communication is better and we cherish every moment we spend together. Laughter is a regular ingredient in our everyday life much more than before.
God has blessed us with two wonderful sons: Loïc and Lorenz. They are always excited to come to church and be a part of whatever we are doing. Being exposed to the teaching of God’s Word has immensely impacted us. We learnt how we can practically apply it to our daily lives and more so tell others about it.
In 2014, we had the privilege of being part of our 1st Mission Trip to Haiti and partnered with Harvest Indy West to conduct a marriage conference in the village of Merger which was affected by the 2010 earthquake. At the end of our time there, we felt that God was calling us to be part of something greater than ourselves. That same year, after attending HARVEST UNIVERSITY in October we attended an elective “Reaching Latinos” and on our return we expressed our desire to Pastor Al and the elders to start a Small Group in Spanish, which became a reality in December that same year.
God was orchestrating everything for us without even being completely aware. We began praying earnestly about going into fulltime ministry and God just moved in miraculous and marvelous ways that we cannot put in words. We are here today to plant another Harvest Bible Chapel in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
When I see how God has transformed the lives of people who have been bruised by different circumstances of life and are now preaching the good news of Jesus with boldness; I said to myself, why not me? When God placed the calling on my life, I felt unequipped and undeserved. However, through His word, He began to remind me “I am the one who chooses. I am the one who equips.”
We pray that God would give us wisdom as we seek to build His Kingdom here in Georgetown and glorify Himself through our ministry and that Harvest Georgetown would be a place for people to come to worship, walk and work for Him.
