Pastors Interview with Elder Daryl Wilkerson

Elder Daryl Wilkerson, Evangelist with the DeWitt Hill Ministry traveled to Haiti with Saint DeWitt Hill and Ron A. Lee.  They attended the Jurisdictional Holy Convocation.  While in Haiti, Elder Wilkerson preached at several churches, toured some of the devastated areas in the city and mountains.  He took time to interview some of the superintendents and pastors about the needs they face and pled to the people in the United States for help.

The Ministry of Compassion

The Ministry of Compassion is the continuing mission of Saint DeWitt Hill.  Saint DeWitt Hill travelled to Haiti for over 50 years.  He has shipped by planes, boats, ships tons of clothes and non-perishable goods.  When he travels in person, he leaves all of his clothes except what he is going to wear back to the United States.  Haiti and the Bahamas were his last foreign mission trips before going home to be with God.
