Jesus wants all people to accept His Lordship. Also the people of Haiti. The earthquake made 300.000 people accept the gospel.
Two years after a devastating earthquake killed an estimated 300,000 people in Haiti, Christianity is fast replacing Voodoo in the lives and practices of the people, a missionary has revealed.
According to the Central Intelligence Agency World Factbook, there is a fusion of beliefs in Haiti – 80 percent of people profess to be Catholic, and another 16 percent are Protestant yet roughly half of the population still practices Voodoo.
However, it is no secret that Christianity has been expanding as a religion in Haiti – and a host of Christian missionaries and charity organizations who flew to the Caribbean nation to help the millions in desperate need have also contributed to a large conversion movement.
One such group, the Haiti Foundation of Hope, a Christian organization addressing the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the people in the impoverished rural communities of northern Haiti, has built a number of community health programs in local villages and has seen firsthand people giving up their Voodoo beliefs and turning to Christ.
“The background of the religious belief in Haiti has been Voodoo. This came from Africa, and has been integrated into Catholicism.

The Bible says that God do not want anyone to perish, but that all might turn to Jesus and be saved.
In a population where the majority practiced a mix of Voodoo and Catholicism, God needed to give people a stern warning.
It is fantastic news that 300.000 people in Haiti has turned to Jesus the Messiah. It is a prove that tribulation can be a good medicine for getting people to wake up.
1 Timothy 2:1-5
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus.
As a Norwegian national I would like to pray for a similar revival in Norway:
I hope and pray that the people of Norway will take their own disasters as a warning from God. Like the massacre that left 69 youth dead by a single gunman on July 22nd 2011. The large majority of the people in Norway need to repent or perish.
