When Pastor Pritchett was called by God to visit Haiti over 26 years ago, he saw real life stories of poverty he had never encountered. He knew he had to do something. “When I went back to the states, I realized how blessed we were, how much we had,” he said. “I knew I had to do something with that blessing.”
Pastor Pritchett averages seven to eight trips a year to Haiti. Now more than ever, he’s looking to raise awareness for the natural disaster that struck the country. He has worked with Mother Eleanor Workman in Haiti for over 26 years and the Church of God in Christ orphanage. Pastor Pritchett also works with Pastors in the US providing assistance and knowledge for their work in home and foreign missions.
In October 2005, Elder Pritchett and Reverend Cooper took a trip to Georgia to aid the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
On Dec. 13, 2005, the Pastor, Deacon Stephan Lawson, Deacon Kenneth Farmer, Bro. Lenny Smith and Bro. Nelson Feagin took another trip down south to St. Joseph, Louisiana to aid more hurricane victims. The Pastor made a petition to the church for help; the people came together and supported the cause. The church property was used as the drop off point for donated items.
Thank God for the support of the members and the community. The Mayor of St. Joseph, La., has officially declared Dec. 15th “Faith Tabernacle Community Church Day.”
