We are most grateful that the Coronavirus has not hit Haiti. As of this writing, there are no reported cases.
The Haitian Government has cancelled all incoming international flights (except from the US) in an effort to further protect the people. I applaud their decision. Considering the poverty and unsanitary conditions, the virus would have a devasting effect on the people of Haiti.
I am shipping supplies to the orphange including masks, alcohol wipes and misc hygene items in an effort to keep our kids safe should the virus show up. Fortunately, the international flight ban does not include supplies.
Your continued prayer for our work is most appreciated.
We are grateful for a generous gift for new batteries for the orphanage. Our old batteries were worn out and we have been without electricity for several weeks. A faithful partner of the orphanage answered the call and sent $1000 for a new bank of batteries.
Our world is consumed with fear over Coronavirus. But as Christ Followers, our hope and faith is in One greater than this world.
Working with the effects of poverty and corruption in Haiti and Africa, we are accustomed to tribulation and distress. I and my compassionate donors are not shaken by fears of a pandemic disease for we fight the diseases of poverty, illiteracy and hopelessness every day. Our lives and resources are devoted to helping those less fortunate.
But we could not sustain our battle without a faith that can “move mountains”. Surely, we do not struggle alone or in vain. We have been called and our hope is in our Lord, the Creator of the heavens and earth. He is the Alpha and Omega, and He knows the Beginning and the End. The worries and fears of the day are microscopic compared to our Omniscient God. Nothing will deter us from our mission..not fear nor disease will keep us from our calling.
“Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?” Romans 8:35
