Update on Haiti


March in Port-au-Prince

I am finally getting around to updating after much busyness. Our team from Goochland, Virginia, flew out a day early yesterday due to increasing problems in the country. Thankfully, they all arrived home safely around midnight. I will post more about that later. It’s been a very busy and rewarding week and much has been done.

We are still waiting for our new batteries and the generator will have to go off soon. The transfer has been made and now it’s just a matter of getting the batteries sent up from Port-au-Prince to Cap-Haitian. Today has been one of staying home since there is a strike going on. 7 February 1986 marks the day that President Jean-Claude Duvalier was exiled and I suppose this memory only fuels the despair of the  Haitian people who continue to see escalating prices of gas and food as well as the mismanagement of funds concerning the petrol situation. The picture above was taken two hours ago of a huge march in Port-au-Prince. The citizens are demanding the removal of current President Jovenel Möise as well as his cabinet members. Pray that there will be a resolution to this maddening situation and that the noose will be loosened from around their necks. Life is very hard here and that’s an understatement. I can hear gunfire in the neighborhood. I don’t know if it’s vigilantes or police breaking up a disturbance. There’s much that one doesn’t know here which is a good reason to stay out of the line of fire and spend time in prayer.

In the midst of all the chaos, Rehoboth Ministries is here and making a huge impact upon this country. A silent work is going on of training up tomorrow’s leaders today. We are working to produce a generation which will throw off the restraints of lawlessness and poverty in order to embrace a future that’s filled with hope. As usual, your prayers and offerings spur us on. Thank you for partnering with us!
