Houston police busted a local pastor in a massive prostitution sting.
The Houston Chronicle reports First Haitian Community Church pastor Ermonte Moliere was one of 139 men netted during a 10-day operation at a massage parlor turned brothel.
According to the church website:
Pastor Moliere graduated from the Theological School of Boulvard on October 15, 2004 located in Tabarre, Port-au-Prince, Haiti where he studied Theology. After working for 5 years for the "Conseil National de Financement Populaire, (CNFP)" he traveled to Fort Myers, Florida, in January 2010 to rejoined his wife. Once arrived in Fort Myers, Florida he started preaching the Word of God to his people. In late 2010, with Cenel Benel, he founded the church "Riocher de Delivrance" at Fort Myers, Florida.
Pastor Ermonte Moliere is committed to winning souls for Jesus-Christ and uses preaching, and formation to provide God's Word to help people understand how important it is to have Christ in their life. His ministry is based in the scriptures "God has saved us through his only Son Jesus-Christ who accepted to give his life on the cross for our sins", this is how we know what love is when Jesus said: "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep", John 10:11.
While he was collaborating and serving people, the people at the Church of Rock deliverance, He had a vision of God, in which God asked him to go to Houston, Texas to work in a ministry he reserved for him. Pastor Ermonte Moliere and his family accepted to travel to Houston, Texas where they did not have any family members, but God has planned everything because he gave the vison. When God gives vision, he provides means for it.
After 3 years of ministry in different churches in Houston, Texas God guided Pastor Moliere through the ministry he has prepared for him. He is now the Senior Pastor of First Haitian Community Church, an assembly where the people are dedicated to serve God and help spread his words according to Mark 16.15-16. Pastor Moliere's emphasis on the need for spiritual growth and development through the teaching of God's Word, has resulted in dramatically increased attendance at Bible Study and Sunday School. In addition, the Church School curriculum has been expanded to accommodate the participation of all age groups of the Church.
The sting was orchestrated by police, who went undercover as "new management" at the brothel.
"These 139 individuals are part of the reason the sex trade is alive here in Houston," says Houston Police Department Chief Art Acevedo. "These men should be ashamed."
