3-19-19 Update on Unrest in Haiti
Gary Fulton, HOM Executive Director, made a quick trip to Haiti on Thursday, March 14, to visit Leon and Jacky Dorleans and our Haiti Outreach Ministries campuses. Gary writes, “Life seemed to be back to normal with lots of traffic and people on the roads. I visited two schools (Repatriote and Barye Fe) where students were in class. A mission team from Georgetown, IN was having a great experience working on projects at Repatriote. A lot of good things are happening in Haiti through Haiti Outreach Ministries and our mission partners. I hope and pray that Haiti will remain calm and the political situation stabilizes.”
3-4-19 Update on Unrest in Haiti
Pastor Leon Dorleans reports that all of our campuses are safe and Sunday worship was awesome on March 3. All four of our schools are open and the medical clinic is open. Leon says that Haiti has returned to business as usual. Our guest house is open and we are ready for teams to engage in mission work. Even with this good news it needs to be noted that the US State Department’s security alert for Haiti is level 4: Do Not Travel. Teams are advised to make the best decision for them when deciding about traveling to Haiti. We are grateful for your many ways of support.

2-16-19 Update on Unrest in Haiti
The situation in Haiti continues to be difficult and uncertain with street protests making travel difficult around Port-au-Prince. The availability of food and gasoline is limited. Leon was able to go to Petion-Ville to buy food on Friday. He reports while there was traffic in Petion-Ville, when he returned to lower Delmas there was not much traffic and less people on the street.
All of the Haiti Outreach Ministries’ schools remain closed, but all of the campuses are safe. We continue to monitor the situation and communicate with Leon and our other Haitian partners regularly. Please continue to pray for our mission partners, for all the people of Haiti, for an end to the unrest, and for peace and stability in Haiti.

Update on Wednesday, February 13, 2019
Based on updates from Pastor Leon we are cancelling all team trips to Haiti scheduled through at least the next week. At this time the grocery and building supply stores are closed and travel throughout the Port-au-Prince area is very limited. The guest house at Terre Noire is not able to supply food for groups and supplies for building projects are not available.
We continue to monitor the situation in Haiti and are staying in communication with Pastor Leon and our mission partners in Haiti. We will post updates regularly.

Congratulations Pastor Profaite!
Our very sincere congratulations are extended to Pastor Profaite Medeus, the lead Pastor of Cite Soleil church, on his recent nuptials.

Celebrating Making a Dream a Reality
On September 12, 2015 more than 100 people from the U.S. and Haiti gathered to dedicate the new secondary school in the community of Baryé Fé. For years our students had to travel to other schools to complete their education once they graduated from 6th grade. This marks the beginning of a new era in education for our students. With the completion of the first module at Baryé Fé, they can now continue their
education in a Christian environment under the same outstanding leadership of Jacky Dorleans, superintendent of our schools. Plans for the Baryé Fé campus includes classrooms for 7th through 13th grades and a trade school.
