Repairing the Hole in the World The Hole in Our Gospel
Haiti’s Dream “We see Haiti as an emergent country by 2030; a society of simplicity, fairness, and justice; united, living in harmony with its environment, culture, and a controlled modernity based on the rule of law, freedom of association and expression and national planning,
Haiti’s Dream with a modern, strong, dynamic, competitive, open economy and a broad territorial basis, where all basic needs of the population are met and managed by a United State which is strong, acts as a guarantor of the general interest and is highly devolved and decentralized.”
Evil Can be Defeated by Repairing the Holes in this World
Luke 10:17-20 (NIV) The seventy-two returned with joy and said, "Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name." He replied, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. I have given you authority to trample on snakes
and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven." Luke 10:17-20 (NIV)
Luke 10:1-3 (NIV) After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. He told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.
Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. Luke 10:1-3 (NIV)
Luke 10:18 (NIV) He (Jesus) replied, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.”
Luke 10:19 (NIV) I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.
Luke 10:20 (NIV) However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.
We Bring Jesus Joy When We Repair the Holes in This World
Luke 10:21-23 (NIV) At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure. All things have
been committed to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him." Then he turned to his disciples and said privately, "Blessed are the eyes that see what you see.” Luke 10:21-23 (NIV)
