PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Several teams of students from Baptist Collegiate Ministries around the state took part in evangelism opportunities in Haiti’s capital city months after the devastating earthquake there.

Prior to the students’ arrival, the Haitian Baptist Convention identified local churches needing evangelism teams. Those teams spent the day with children using Evangecubes, Jesus bracelets, and soccer balls with the Gospel imprinted on them as tools to spread the Good News.

“We watched as one girl read a Creole Evangelistic soccer ball,” said Mercer University BCM director Chris Fuller. “Other children were listening to her read and present the Gospel. Who needs teachers when God’s children proclaim his glory?”

The North American Mission Board coordinated the trip with the GBC Student Missions Department as well as Florida Baptist Convention.

“In a place where there has been so much death and destruction, it’s wonderful to see the Gospel so eagerly embraced,” added Fuller.
