Our MFI Conference is over and we are here in Tilamook, Oregon, getting ready to minister at Living Waters Fellowship in the morning. John was due to fly back to Haiti tomorrow, but delayed his ticket due to the great unrest that is taking place at present in Haiti. Tomorrow, we head back to Portland.
Haiti, as most of you know, has been through its ”ups and downs” enduring violence, hunger, and hardship that most of us cannot fathom. But, it always has an end. Things settle down to a sense of normalcy after a while and life goes on. This time, however, it seems the crisis just continues to mount. There are so many different factions warring against each other and some of them are determined to run President Jovenel Moïse out of office or bust. The fuel crisis continues to cripple the nation, schools are closed down, and people are suffering needlessly. All we can do is sit by, watch and, of course, PRAY. It’s hard to enjoy the beauty of the Pacific Northwest knowing that our folks back in Haiti are wondering when, and if, they will return to life as they know it.
Here’s a post our son, John, put on facebook after speaking with some of our friends in Cap-Haitian:
”One of my Bible college students wrote to say that he’s hearing that schools won’t be open until January. He’s probably going to go to the Dominican Republic to find work just so he can pay off what he owes on his house for the rest of the year. The guy who works in our Bible college office told me it was a good thing I didn’t come back this weekend. He said an area near where we live has turned into a war zone with people from rival neighborhoods fighting each other with guns. I can’t imagine what life must be like for those at the bottom.”
We weep for Haiti. January will make 37 years of ministry there. The folks who have worked alongside of us during this time, who have prayed us through insurmountable odds like the kidnapping and going to the brink of death in 2010 in Canada, now need our help. Your prayers, as well as your giving, mean so much at this time. You probably will not read about this on the news, but Haiti is in dire straits.
