Mardi Gras takes place during the week leading up to Ash Wednesday. Mardi Gras refers to a time of celebrations that include carnivals,parades and other activities that encourage participants to over indulge in eating, drinking and other sensuous activities before the season of Lenten begins on Ash Wednesday. Many of the celebrations are inspired and rooted in Voodoo. To offer a Christian alternative to these celebrations, Fishers of Men Ministries Int’l held their first Mardi Gras crusade in 1994. It is an outdoor evening event offering worship music, messages of the Gospel and time for hands on ministry to those in the crowds. Thousands attend and the attendance continues to increase year after year.
During the day, FOMM Int’l welcomes pastors and leaders from all over the country to their National Leadership Conference. Guest speakers come to impart the word of the Lord to the men and women serving the body throughout the nation of Haiti, to encourage and empower them to continue to take a nation for Jesus.
If you would like to be a part of what the Lord is doing during this time please prayerfully consider partnering with us. You may consider bringing a team (Short Term Mission) to experience first hand the crusade and conference or you may want to help financially with the costs of this outreach.
