Since I last wrote, all our children and grandchildren have gone their separate ways. This was the first post that John wrote on his Facebook page since leaving. I know that some of you who read this blog are not on Facebook, so I’m posting it here so you can pray for him. John has taken it all in stride, yet life in Haiti is hard. This week, he is busy preparing for his students to return next week for classes.
I got home and our security guard half-jokingly said, “Welcome to hell.” The generator’s broken so there’s no electricity and no Internet at the house. Two months of dust and cobweb buildup left the house filthier than I expected. Thirsty, I took a glass and filled it with tepid water from the unenergized water cooler. I didn’t notice until I was halfway into my first swallow that the glass had been completely coated in dust, even though it had been sitting upside down in the cupboard. I spent the afternoon dusting and sweeping before cutting my finger on some of the new rust in the shower. Now I’m enjoying an overpriced Coke at a local hotel. It’s good to be home. – John
We ask your prayers for:
- the piece for the generator’s alternator will come quickly from the Dominican Republic so the generator can get repaired. Unfortunately, John’s had no electricity except for the sporadic city current.
- protection for John as he goes to and comes from school, town, etc.
- that John’s vehicle fund will be completed.
So far, we have raised $27,073 for John’s new vehicle. Our goal is $35,500. The reason for this is that a heavy-duty vehicle will last much longer on bad roads and diesel fuel is more abundant in Haiti than gasoline.We still need $8,427. By the time the paperwork is finished and the truck is driven 8 hrs. to Cap-Haitian, $9,000 would be a reasonable gift. Prit and I hope to go to Port-au-Prince to purchase is when we return to Haiti soon. Meanwhile, John’s driving our pickup.
