It’s 86 degrees in Cap-Haitian today! It’s too bad the beaches are closed due to the Corona Virus. If we had air conditioners here at home, it would be more tolerable. We’d just ignore the heat outside and sit back, put our feet up, and read a good book. Unfortunately, our generator is not strong enough to carry the strength of an AC, so floor fans and ceiling fans will have to suffice for the moment ….. and cold baths! Living on a tropical island is not always a paradise as some may think. We are praying for rain!
How would you like to help us raise some funds for new solar panels? Our goal is $30,000 and we already have over 1/3 of it raised – $10,600! We’re $19,400 short and every gift counts!
10 reasons why having panels in place would make our lives more tolerable!
- Help our elementary and Bible students here on our compound to study better with cooler air in their classrooms. The other side of the compound has no electricity except that which comes from the city. This is very sporadic.
- No electricity means an inability to communicate with our family, friends, and donors. Having internet connects us with the outside world.
- All meetings and events scheduled will not be interrupted by a power outage.
- We spend a whopping $350 a month just on diesel fuel. The $350 doesn’t include money for oil, battery water, and an occasional need to call our electrician in case our generator is overworked. The money could be best used elsewhere.
- We could eventually provide a computer lab for our Bible school students. Maybe we could even move to online classes therefore inhibiting a Pandemic or anything else from ever closing down our schools again.
- Solar panels would enable us to purchase a refrigerator and freezer to start a small business and put people to work.
- As we add other rooms to our two mission houses on the compound for visiting teams or guests, we could provide them with a cooler place to stay.
- Since pumping water into our cistern requires electricity, we would be able to pump it when it’s needed instead of waiting on the city current.
- I may actually be able to use my crock pot that was given to me years ago!
- Last, but not least, we can get a good night’s sleep and not have to endure the insufferable heat.
