Thank you so much for your prayers for Haiti. We have watched with anguish and sadness how more than one million people have been trying to put there lives together after the devastating earthquake that left more than 200,000 dead along the southern peninsula of Haiti from Cayes to Port-au-Prince. Your support to me and my family has been amazing. We appreciate so much the fact that with have friends like you that we can rely on for psychological and spiritual comfort in times of crisis such as we have suffered the past month.
All of those working for Grace Corps have been accounted for. We were able to talk to all of them.
Mrs Rachelle Gervais Mathieu Has given birth to twins: a girl and a boy.
Mr. Marc Isma (Principal) last time we talked was recovering from dysentery. His wife and Child are fine.
Mr. Michel and wife was fine
Mr Masié was also doing well. (School accountant)
Prayer Meeting resuming next week
Regarding our prayer meetings at the end each month, they will resume on Wed. Feb 24th. All former attendees are invited. We welcome those who preparing for the coming Haiti trip. Please come and be part of this good time. Feel free to invite a friend to the meeting as we will also be talking about the last events that took place in Haiti and consider how best to contribute to relief efforts. We will also take some time to talk about the coming trip and what we will be doing. (I am hoping that by the time we meet my passport would have already reached me).
1) The rebirth of Haiti (That Christ will take the center stage)
2) Grace Corps's Impact on the land especially through Education
3) The lord leading for it to be effective and efficient (Having the most impact with the least expenses)
4) Healing for the people's souls who have lost love ones and/or are traumatized by the events
5) That the steel building will be purchased or donated (However the Lord wants to do it)
6) Safety for the upcoming trip
