Last week, Prit and I joined our church committee in Petite Anse to meet with our Zone Leaders. These leaders oversee the communities where cell groups are located.
The reason for the meeting was to discuss the distribution of the food boxes which have been sitting in our school’s depot all this time since schools are still closed.
We were in awe as we listened to them share from their hearts.
Not. One. Complaint. was uttered concerning how difficult life is here or the havoc that the Pandemic has wreaked upon a land that was already bearing up under a measure of untold suffering.
All we heard were humble, heartfelt thanks for the funds that Orphans Promise approved for them to hand out to hungry families.
I wish you could have been there, for it was a humbling experience. There was a feeling of awesome reverence in the room – of US towards THEM.
Friday, food boxes (loaded on the back of motorcycles) found their way to each zone leader’s home and then they were distributed among the families that gathered there. There was not enough food to give each family their own box, yet it was free food. We prayed that somehow the Lord would multiply the contents in each bag.
Rehoboth also gave an additional $1,000 to alleviate their suffering, thanks to the monthly giving of our own donors into the feeding account.
Dana – When I send a worker to the marché, it is costing 3x what it used to because the prices have drastically increased. Each time, I wonder how the members of our churches and the average Haitian can even afford to put a decent meal on their tables.
(These are the most basic essentials in life!)
Food and Water
Yet, even here, staying alive has become a necessity. Thank you, Orphans Promise
and friends of Rehoboth, for enabling us to put food in the mouths of both adults and children.
You can help too!
Won’t you become a partner with Rehoboth to help provide this basic need?
There will be no complaining. Just a simple ”thank you.” 🙂
**Boxes were also sent to our other two church plants in Sainte-Philomène and Belle-Hôtesse which are also a part of the feeding program.
