It’s always predicted that hurricane season will peak around mid to late August. We are right on schedule, dealing with the aftermath of the high winds and devastating flooding in the wake of tropical storms Laura and Marco.
We are grateful that our HCM staff and pastors are safe, and our campus, churches and school buildings are mostly unharmed. However, many in our congregations are dealing with severe damage to their homes and businesses. Rice fields are flooded, making our food distributions more important than ever. We can only help because of your financial gifts.
If you are moved to help financially with the rice distributions or other outreach efforts, we would gratefully appreciate anything you can give. Aside from the past 10 days, the rest of August was a time of progress and blessings. With the lack of fuel, we added some alternative energy sources to the campus to help supplement the much-needed electricity as we welcomed back hundreds of children to in-seat classes at our schools. Practices started again for our PIF sports program. We continued distributing food to those in crisis due to the impact of the COVID shut-down. Our medical clinic staff continued to see patients and deliver healthy babies. And most importantly, we started limited meetings again in our churches, sharing the Good News and baptizing believers into Christ. Kingdom work continues, despite what trials might come to Haiti next. Thank you for believing in the work we are doing here. You are our partners in eternity!
