The Long Road

The medical clinic and radio station are the two areas of MOHI that have been operating this week. RADIO STATION Much radio time is dedicated to prayer and to education about COVID-19 virus prevention and more. In between we are playing Christian music and trusting the Lord is visiting people in their homes, drawing them into worship. MEDICAL CLINIC Patients are washing their hands as soon as they come through the gate and are then seated with a good distance between them. The medical staff are using masks and gloves and the heavily used surfaces are being sanitized regularly. "REAL LIFE" IN HAITI Unfortunately, "real life" in Grand-Goave is not very conducive to social distancing. Food a

Haiti Lockdown Begins

Greetings from Haiti! I imagine most of us could very animatedly agree with this statement: The week started out with family time, beach time... ...a trip to Jacmel and an INTENSE hike (for me, that is) to Bassin Bleu - a beautiful mountain valley flowing with cool water falls and submerged with lovely blue pools of fresh water. I thought I might collapse before arriving (the picture below, all the way to the right), but I made it. We had several guides accompany us and you may see some in the picture helping me jump from stone to stone to cross a stream. Such brave souls! Pastor Lex is missing from the pictures, because he stayed behind to continue working on the yard in preparation for

Trusting

Preparations continue for MOHI's 20 Years in Haiti celebration coming up THIS Saturday. Benches were painted, dirt was moved, more dirt was moved, dirt was compacted, a work day was organized, supplies arrived (much gratitude to Chair City Church in Gardner, MA and All Saints Church in Belmont for their extreme generosity!!!), and meetings continued. We're so grateful for donations of goods that come to us regularly from World Wide Lighthouse Missions (Manchester, CT). From school supplies, to clothing, to peanut butter - it all goes to good use! From time to time our teachers will let us know when a student appears to be in need. We were able to bless this little guy with some new cloth

Desire Fulfilled

This week I was confronted with "hope deferred makes the heart sick". The US State Department raised their Haiti travel alert to the highest level, 4. This is the second time in all my years in Haiti that I've seen it raised to a 4. It's usually a very stable 3. Consequently, we found ourselves faced with a difficult decision. What about the teams coming scheduled this month? Our friends from Bless Back were scheduled to arrive today, but with the US Government saying don't visit Haiti, they didn't. Likewise, I reached out to the folks scheduled to begin arriving on Saturday to assist with the women's conference and the 20 Years in Haiti Celebration to inform them their trip had to be

20 FOR 20

Happy March 2020 everyone! Our planning meeting after church this morning had a theme: "20 days for 20 years". Yes, in just 20 more days we will be celebrating 20 years in Haiti. As I've been telling you right along, MOHI leadership is really pumped about this opportunity to not only celebrate what the Lord has done through this ministry, but to also let our lights shine brightly. This is our moment to show the people of our community that we love and care for them in a new and exciting way. Jesus told Peter, the fisherman turned disciple, that He would make him a fisher of men. I used to love fishing the Block Island Sound area in CT/RI. Sometimes I'd hit it just right and reel in lots
