Due to the multitude of problems facing Haiti, which are driving many to despair, the believers in our churches have committed themselves to 21 Days of Prayer. The situation there has become so desperate that the World Food Program is warning that if the present blockade continues, Haiti will have a full-fledged famine. The rise of gangs in Haiti has proven to be a menace that no one can control, even on the national level.
In September, the largest gang in Haiti blockaded the main port in Port-au-Prince, refusing to allow fuel shipments to pass through — unless the prime minister resigns. The prime minister, himself, is suspected to have had a part in President Jovenel Moïse’s assassination. These gangs began under the presidency of Jean Bertrand Aristide and have been fueled by political leaders in the Haitian government. Rival gangs have fought for control of the nation’s capital. Port-au-Prince has been dubbed the ”kidnapping capital of the world.”
Our schools and Bible institute in Cap Haitian remain closed since the beginning of September due to the strife caused within their borders. God graciously made a way for us to pay the teachers in the main school who were hungry, but were prevented from teaching because of the present situation. The children, (many of them who survived on the one meal a day received in school), have not been able to participate in our feeding program for several weeks now.
We are faced with a huge dilemma of knowing how to help so many who are in need. Many of those who did have work have not been able to circulate and are going hungry.
Please pray for our Haitian brothers and sisters in Christ as they have set aside a solemn time for 21 days to implore the Lord’s mercies on behalf of their nation.They have already started to pray since last week.
Since the writing of this blog post, the Haitian police have taken over the fuel terminal mentioned in the above article. Below is the link. I would love to think there’s a connection between the 21 days of prayer and this victory.
”If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” II Chronicles 7: 14
