Praying For Haiti
9/29/19 – The past couple of weeks have been difficult for Haiti as protestors have blocked many of the streets throughout Port-au-Prince (and much of the country), and largely shutting down travel. Haitians continue to face shortages of fuel and food. Our HOM/MICECC schools on our four campuses closed this past week and our medical clinic in Cite Soleil had to stop seeing patients on Wednesday and was closed Thursday and Friday. Two medical team trips and our economic development and pastoral leadership classes scheduled for early October had to be cancelled.
We are staying in constant contact with Leon, Profaite, Jacky, Nadege, and others in leadership in our ministry in Haiti to get the latest updates. While they report that the situation is difficult, they also tell us that they and our campuses are safe. Unfortunately, when our schools and the medical clinic are closed, the students do not receive the daily lunches and many people do not receive the medical care they need.
I ask that you join us in praying for the people of Haiti, for calm and peace, for availability of food and fuel, for stability, and for God’s grace, love, and presence to be known. We are grateful for God’s care and the many ways that we can be in ministry in Haiti. Thank you for joining us on this journey of faith as we serve with our brothers and sister in Haiti.
Grace and Peace,
