Folks here are beginning to talk about setting up their Christmas trees and decorating for the season. I truly love this time of year and am usually at the forefront of decking the tree early. But, all I can seem to think of lately is the moment when my husband and son will walk through our front door. I will breathe easier knowing they are stateside and I long to have them near. Then….it will be Christmas for me.
Haiti might as well be on another planet. Gas shortages, gang activity, and the closing of our schools and Bible institute are at the forefront of the minds of those living there. In addition to this is a 3-day fast taking place on the part of missionaries already on the ground for the release of the 17 kidnapped men, women, and children being held hostage by the 400 Mawozo gang. Can you imagine what Christmas will be like for these hostages provided they return home safely? Then, there are the hospitals which have run out of fuel while its workers have no other choice but to send the sick home to die. This is exactly what is taking place as the fuel crisis complicates the humanitarian attempts to help those who can’t help themselves. Don’t forget, that for many folks in the post-earthquake area, daily life is still in upheaval.
Our son, John, and Gary (who works for Rehoboth), made a video yesterday. While, for some reason, I have not been able to upload the video onto this website, I have posted it on my Facebook page. You can also click on this link to watch. They give a firsthand account of life on the mission field.
Would you join us in prayer for the release of the hostages? Would you also pray for the missionaries and Haitian people on the ground who are in very dangerous circumstances and dealing with outrageous prices which affect their own survival? Due to the port crisis that we have stateside, our feeding boxes have never arrived to Cap-Haitian and all food is having to be purchased in the outdoor market at mind-boggling prices. Christmas is the last thing on the minds of those who are in survival mode.
While you are praying, would you also consider becoming a regular donor to Rehoboth Ministries so that you can help us help them? I’ll be more in spirit for Christmas when my loved ones are home. But giving is always in season!
