MEARS IN HAITI
Crossworld was originally called Unevangelized Fields Mission (UFM) which had its start in 1931 by sending its first missionaries to the Congo and Brazil. The name chage occurred in 2004 to reflect the goal of taking the message of the cross to the entire world. Churches planted by their missionaries are now involved in cross-cultural missions themselves. Besides the church planting, their workers are involved in education, medical care, sports, and more.
A couple of those workers are Rich and Carol Mears. They were local residents of Northampton Township until they felt the tug of the Holy Spirit to enter the mission field. Currently, they are serving in Haiti under the Crossworld banner, reaching out to the youth by way of a sports ministry, training others on how to get business started, helping to plant churches, as just a brief description of all the work they are doing.
The Mears main goal in Haiti is to glorify God and to Him and His kingdom by being a Christian example through their live. They accomplish some of this by:
- Training AIS (Ambassadors In Sports) Haiti leaders to start evangelistic soccer teams at schools
- Teaching Haitians how to write a business plan and start a business
- Telling all whom they encounter that Jesis loves them and has a better plan for their lives
- Carol teaches at the Quisqueya Christian School
We partner with this couple by lifting them up in prayer and that through all they do, God gets the glory and praise. We also have assisting them finacially. Rich Mears maintains a blog that one can access and read all of the things that are happening with his work in Haiti
