About Jacque & Marie

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010
 
After graduating from Arlington Baptist College in 1988, Jacques and Marie Alexandre set their compasses toward Haiti and began their first work in Port-au-Prince.  They began their labor for the Lord in 1989 out of their living room after two weeks of intensive soul winning.  God honored that labor with 31 conversions and provided the foundation of an independent Baptist church that now averages nearly 900 souls each week in attendance.  From that meager beginning, God has given much fruit for their labor with over 4,760 conversions and 4,856 baptisms during the last 19 years.  Many of those who have been saved were involved in voodoo in various ways.  Bro. Rolinx, a practicing voodoo priest and worshipper of the god of this world, could not resist the power of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  His testimony is tremendous how that God brought Jacques into his life at the very moment of his greatest need with the message of life through the God of Heaven.      
God has opened many doors of ministry opportunity for these servants.  They have started works in Port-au-Prince, Hatt, and Pernier.  Jacques hosts two radio broadcasts that reach most of Haiti and even into the Dominican Republic, a nation which shares the island of Hispañola with Haiti.  In 2002 they began a ministry which feeds and educates 95 needy children on the island.  The Lord also provided a vision for the very first “Children’s Churches” in Haiti.  The church in Hatt averages 253 children each Sunday and the church in Pernier averages 45.  A local prison ministry has yielded much fruit with many women being led out of a life of bondage to Satan and into a life of liberty through Christ.  Jacques understands the Bible command to disciple men to carry on the ministry.  He has educated and personally trained 40 national missionaries who are all currently active in evangelism.  These men will become church planting missionaries in the rural areas of Haiti.

No Place Like Home Orphanage. Haiti

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010
“Let the little children come to me” Matthew 19:14
This is a ministry of Jacque & Marie Alexander who returned to Haiti a few days before the earthquake on January 12, 2010. Their lives were changed that day and God placed it on their hearts to begin an orphanage for the many children that were effected by the tragedy that day. It is estimated that over 50,000 children became orphans as a result of the earthquake. On a piece of land in Clarcene, in Port au Prince that they owned, they were able to immediately care for three orphans. As you can imagine things were very tough in those first few months, but with the help from relief funds they were able to construct temporary living quarters for the children and for Jacque and Marie. They have come a long way through the prayer and donations of the many believers who support their ministry. They now have 10 orphans in the facility. Plans are being made to construct a permanent structure and the need for funding is critical. The children need sponsors to fund their on-going needs and for the construction of the building.
