“Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Mathew 28:19-20.
Dear Loved Ones,
Greeting from Haiti. We hope that each one of you had a way to praise God for this Thanksgivings. Now we are all looking forward to a richly blessed Christmas and a wonderful New Year 2019.
From human perspective, if there is a legacy that can be called the Nzunga legacy, it is the training of young professors at our University, the Universite Chretienne du Nord d’Haiti. Way back now, when I privately started with my first assistant professor, Rigard Charles, I had no idea that this program was going to go wild. When Rigard moved on to work on his Master at Central Seminary, the president of the university then, Dr. Jules Casseus, asked me to train Henri Claude Telusma. Today Henri Claude holds a PH. D from France and is the Dean of research and the founder of Center of research in Ethics and Anthropology in Haiti. Then came Albertus Phucien who has two Masters from France and getting ready for his doctorate in Canada. Meanwhile Albertus Phucien is heading the Master in theology program. Many young people have gone to further their studies overseas and are coming back to take over the future of this university.
Today all the schools that we have here: theology, Education, Agriculture, Fine Arts, Business Administration, Nursing, Master in leadership and English are eagerly training the professors of tomorrow in Haiti. The youth are assuming their role and their responsibility of training their fellow countrymen.
This year I am training three gifted young people in my Motivation class with 334 students.
Looking at all those young professors today as they lead and teach at our university, our mind could not stop praising God for His wonders. We praise God for the missionaries He used to train us in Congo and now we can follow on their footsteps. We can say that our time in Haiti has not been in vain. This is our Thanksgivings.
Thank you for standing by our sides in training the leaders of tomorrow that Haiti badly needs.
Nzunga & Kihomi
Nzunga writes this journal while being locked in his house for a week. The country has broken out in riots once again over political matters. Please pray for things to calm down. Unfortunately this is all too common there.
When Nzunga arrived over twenty years ago the university lacked organization and a clear path for the brightest students to go on to further education. He was instrumental in organizing departments overseen by deans with clear goals. He has taught ethics since the beginning which is sorely needed in Haiti. He has written some of the text books. Many of you may not know he has a doctorate. He does not like me to ever call him Doctor when introducing him as he says it puts a barrier between him and people. He and Kihomi speak six languages. You cannot go anywhere in Haiti without being greeted enthusiastically by former students. He is going to be mad at me for bragging about him but I want to you to know what a great missionary you support. Haiti is lucky to have him and Kihomi.
There success is your success as I know many of you have supported them for their entire ministries. You are definitely storing your wealth where thieves and moths cannot destroy, Thank you.
