Grand L'eau


Grand L'eau is an isolated mountain village about 2 or 3 hours from Gonaives. 


Grand L'eau has only limited contact with the outside world.  In order to buy food or supplies the people have to walk or ride a donkey about 4 miles to the nearest town, Ennery. 


Since the only road to the village is so rough and crosses several streams, it is almost inaccessible by most vehicles, even with 4-wheel drive. 


Church and School


The church was started by Sainsurin's father. 


A new sanctuary was built in 2002.  About 150 people gather from their mountains homes to worship each Sunday. 

The school has about 200 students and meets in 6 new classrooms and the church building.

Elriste requests prayers:

-That he has the wisdom and knowledge to pastor the church. -That the church would grow.
