Cilem and Harley Suprint - Serving in Haiti
Mission Focus: To plant an indigenous church in the northern part of Haiti. Our ultimate authority is the Word of God, and our mission to create an authentic Christian community that effectively reaches out to unsaved people with love, acceptance and forgiveness so that they may experience the joy of salvation and a purposeful life of discipleship. To use healthcare as a means to initiate Gospel-outreach and discipleship. To follow the leading of God to secure a ministry site location for the express purpose of planting the church, and additionally a Bible school, medical facility, and vocational training facility as God provides.
Ministry Goal: Our desire is to glorify God by being and making disciples in obedience to His command in Matthew 28:19-20, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” As individuals it is vitally important to understand the mission of the church. We eagerly await the day when we will put the first rock into the ground and lay the foundation of the church that I (Cilem) will pastor, by God’s grace, in Cap Haitian, Haiti.
Throughout the book of Acts we see church after church being planted. In fact, the purpose was not to plant new churches, but to disciple the nations, reconciling them to the Father through Jesus Christ. It is the will of God that believers be built up in their faith, becoming equipped for works of service and reproducing leaders for building the kingdom.

Cilem & Harley Suprint
Cilem and Harley were married on September 22, 2018. They desire to follow Jesus Christ with their lives by planting a Church in the north of Haiti.
Cilem grew up in Haiti for the first 26th years of his transformed life that taught him a lot about humility, hardship, and faith in Christ Jesus. He came to know the LORD as His savior by the age of 15 and baptized two years later. As I was more involved in serving the Haitian people as a translator that God opened my eyes to see the need for the gospel in Haiti. Luke 10: 2 “And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” God used this verse to break my heart and to see the great needs of Haiti. From that point on, I felt the call of God in my life to become a pastor.
Cilem graduated from Montana Bible College with a pastoral degree in Biblical studies. Along the journey, he met his beautiful, loving, compassionate, aggressive, and tender-hearted bride Harley, which is such a blessing from God. Cilem would describe his marriage with that precious lovely girl as “AMAZING.” Cilem can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store for both of them as they serve the Lord together. The more Cilem learns about his great God and Savior Jesus, the more he has a passion to share the gospel with the lost. His spiritual gift is teaching, preaching, encouragement, discernment, leadership, and serving. Cilem interest is hiking, playing soccer, playing basketball, swimming, fishing, and love being around peoples.
Harley grew up in the United States on an island called Camano in northwest Washington. She was raised in a Christ-fearing household and started her own walk with Christ at a young age. She was in middle school when she first felt the call upon her life to be in foreign missions. She earned a minor in biblical studies at Corban University with a major in health science, followed by a nursing degree at Samford University.
We are learning what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ and the necessity/urgency of the gospel. The more we learn about our great God and Savior Jesus, the more we have a passion to share the gospel with the lost.
