There's Always Hope

Pastor Lex reports a great week of clinics... outreaches... exam preparations... and this... (THAT is our attempt at regaining some drainage from our school to just past Brit's Way.) He's also seeing a light at the end of the tunnel for the political chaos that has overwhelmed the country for months now. While nothing has officially been declared, there is traffic on the roads again, businesses have begun re-opening and even schools in the third largest city began holding classes again this week. I appreciated hearing truck horns blowing in the middle of our Facebook Live video from the church service in Thozin this morning. Thank you for your support in prayer throughout these difficult m

Persisting

While traffic is picking up a little in Haiti, the unrest has yet to truly settle, as witnessed in this picture where a road block had caused vehicles to be backed up. We sent the bus to Port-au-Prince this week in search of food and to collect the 12 barrels of goods sent to us by World Wide Lighthouse Missions. (Thank you WWLM!)

Bringing Home Hope

As difficult times seem to become more difficult for the people of Haiti, Pastor Lex arrived in Port-au-Prince this afternoon. He has made it safely back to Grand-Goave, with Boss Harold and Pastor Hakine. It's very difficult to be far away while our friends, brothers, sisters, and neighbors are going through such turmoil and Pastor Lex has been very eager to return. I pray the Lord will use his presence there to reinforce a sense of hope and strength in our friends. Last night, rather than packing for the trip, Pastor Lex and I had the privilege of traveling to Marblehead, MA to attend Clifton Lutheran Church's annual fund raising effort for Mission of Hope International.
