There is so much going on in the prayer world for Christianville (CV) in Haiti. Currently, Doug & I are in Ohio with our families and daily raising awareness of the needs in Haiti. We start by asking for these prayers to be prayed:

1. We are in need of an administrator/director to live in Haiti. We have a person that we are interested in bringing to the board however they are still in the praying stages of making a decision. Please pray that God is evident in His choice to work for CV. Also we are not closing the door to others to pray about considering this position.

2. We are in need for a teacher/director of the English Academy to live in Haiti. Currently, Amy is filling the position of the director and has a Haitian substitute teacher in the classroom. The position is a fairly simple position however we ask that this person also be willing to help with other programs going on at the mission. This person would be a teacher for ages 3-6 (Pre-K) from 7:30am -12noon, teaching a home school curriculum called ACE. They would also be in charge of 2 other Haitian teachers, disciplinary actions for students, as well as making sure all tuition is paid to the school on a semi annual basis.

3. US financial giving is down dramatically and CV members as a whole are fundraising and continually looking for sponsors for the school children. Please pray that new people will want to help financially that our current supporters remember how much we rely on their monthly commitments to keep our mission going.

There are no short term teams coming to Christianville in December. All clinics will close next week for the holidays and all missionaries should be leaving to be with their families for Christmas. YTD we have had approximately 200 decisions for Christ throughout Christianville in 2008. Hats off to the clinic, for being God’s tool for about 150 of those decisions. Starting Jan. 5, 2009 we will be busy with short term teams and the clinics and schools will reopen on the 5th and the 12th.

Satan is peeking wherever he can but God is so good to show us His power.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Update - Please excuse my choppy grammar…. Didn’t have much time to write this update but wanted to get some info to you.

In the past week, God has sent a helicopter team of Pilots named Samaritan Air. Missionary friends of ours at an orphanage named, Hands and Feet, out of Jacmel, Haiti, funded the fuel costs for the helicopter to arrive in Haiti to begin additional hurricane relief after hearing of many areas that couldn’t be reached by land. Samaritan Air is using Christianville as their home base since we are centrally located from the Airport to refuel. The pilots currently here are Brian, President and Visionary of Samaritan Air, and his two sons Travis and Hunter. As well as Matt & Beau, two other very talented pilots. They have been delivering beans, rice, oil, & soap to remote areas that vehicles can’t get to because of road damage from the last 3 hurricanes & tropical storm. I say road damage but what I really mean is lack of roads. There has been so much devastation here and many mountainous areas can’t get any food or supplies unless they walk to and fro. The south side of the island seems to be completely cut off. Just after Maragoave, there is a lake that has swelled so badly that the road is underwater for nearly ¼ mile. This is the main highway Rt. National 2, going to the south side of the island. As we flew over my heart just sank. Just thinking about all the people that have been affected by this lake…. And how desperate these poor people will continue to get because the lake has shown no signs of going anywhere.

The first mountain village we have been working on is Seguin. We have been told that it has taken anywhere from 4-5 hours to walk down the mountain just to get the much needed supplies that the people need to survive. Many of their crops were flooded or flattened and for most this is their livelihood. Unfortunately, the pilots have only been able to deliver supplies early in the morning starting about 5am till around 9am because then the fog and clouds set in the mountains. So far, over 2300 lbs of supplies have been delivered and they will be working on delivering an additional 4500+lbs, as well as more supplies as funds continue to filter in.

The next village was also a mountainous village and after dropping one load of food, we got word that the pilots were no longer safe to fly there. A group of people decided that they were going to ambush the chopper to get all the supplies after they landed. I just want to remind you that these people are not savages but at this point they are starving and are in survival mode. Fortunately, they told the wrong person and God protected our new missionary friends. He is such an awesome God!

Please continue to pray for the Haitian people as food & fuel prices raise…. As well as the urgency of raising funds for hurricane relief for so many areas throughout Haiti.

Dear Friends,

Thanks for the emails of concern… Doug & I are safe, however, there has been much devastation throughout Haiti. Across the country there are flattened and flooded trees, fruit trees, gardens, crops, homes, & markets and the people are struggling to survive. The price of food has increased and the people aren’t able to purchase what they once were able to purchase. After Gustav & Hannah, the roof on one of our planted churches’ is in very bad shape. A crew of men went out last week to try to get it patched but is still in sad shape. Our church roof is leaking as well. This has not been fixed yet but is on the agenda to get to it soon.

Our main concern right now is for our people. Just recently, the number of fatalities was over 550. As many as 50 deaths in our surrounding villages. Mom and Beverly Carter got here last week and brought much needed financial help, possibly from some of you. They were scheduled to be here to put on a Women’s Conference this Friday, yet God’s timing couldn’t be better. They have helped me put our house back together after dust, water, mud and debris. Dad and a member from their church will be in tomorrow. Through supporters, they are also able to purchase about 4000 lbs of rice and 2000 lbs beans and other supplies needed for the Haitian people.

Yesterday, we went to Grand Goave to check on our friends and sponsored children though Lifeline. They seem to be in the same boat, but we were told teams will be coming this month to help where they can. We were able to take beans and rice and peanut butter to them as well. We have also heard from friends at other missions and they are all hurting. Please keep all Haitian missions in your prayers.

Lastly, we have been told that there is a group of people that will begin riots or manifestations if the prices don’t decrease and schools throughout may not start until October because of these threats. Please be thinking of our government, police force and UN at this time. Continue to pray that perhaps God will move the path of the storms from Haiti so the people could have a little relief and time to regroup. Also pray that the Haitians continue to look to the Light for guidance in this time of tragedy.

Thanks again for your prayers & concerns!

Love to you all,

Doug & Amy

P.S. Please keep in mind that the internet service here is very inconsistent so if you write to us and don’t here from us promptly, please don’t worry! We’ll get to you as soon as we can.

The washer is broke...and Mme Exode hasn't even got to use it yet. We'll take it back on Tues am & pick up a different one. She is very happy though.

Please pray for the venders that we use to buy souvenirs from. We are making a few changes and they do not want to change anything. We decided to have them all come to us in the university yard on shopping day before the group leaves instead of us making 15 stops in the Reserve Village. Our team liked it better this way but the venders didn't because of the competition, I guess. After a small problem going to the Reserve with the last group, Doug & I feel this is the best for our groups at this time.

Smiley & Squirrely both got fixed is week. Smiley didn't take it so well but Squirrely was knocked out cold! She is like me on meds...trashed! She is slowly gaining weight and looks great. My dad will crack up at her..she could easily be an indoor outdoor dog...and loves to prance at the ball we got her (just like our niece pup Kady prances for FOOD!!) She and Smiley fight over it. I have 4 tiny tennis balls but they fight over just one. They are finally starting to act like dogs vs scavengers. They haven't gotten the hang of raw hides yet. I got them from dollar general so maybe they just don't taste good??

Yesterday I got to pray with a women that begged me for food at the produce market in Leogone. God took my eyes right to her necklace and was VERY evident she practiced VOODOO. I felt irry. She grabbed my hand and held tight. She put it to her stomach and told me in creole she was hungry. I asked her if she was a Christian and she wouldn't tell me. Within in 10 seconds of me talking with her a friend that could translate better (from the Lamb Center) came up behind me. God put him there so fast and there we introduced her to Jesus. i got to tell her that if she turned her life over to Jesus, He could fill her empty stomach. She just pressed my hand harder and harder into her belly. I wondered if she was understanding my words that were being translated and then she looked at me and smiled and said "Merci" (thank you) & off she went. I didn't even give her food. I pray that she understood.

Then yesterday Marie Mat (my GH PT cook) requested an advance on her pay so she could feed her children. Then Maxal, our gate guard, discretely asked Me & Doug for some food. He had worked with Doug from sun up until about 3 and Doug didn't think he had anything for breakfast, then Maxal worked through lunch. We think he has 6 kids...and oh so prideful. He didn't beg, he asked. Doug and I have tried to drill into their heads to just ask if they "NEED" something and we'll try to help them. i cried after this. I feel like we are here to help but even our own people are still hungry. In some families the dad and mom eat first because they are the bread winners... but I think he goes without the meal most of the time. I think he puts the kids first. i have to do something about this. I think we're going to buy beans and rice and oil for our staff that need a little extra help. we are really getting to know them and their needs. I have decided not to hire a house keeper for awhile. Many of the Haitians seem to think we need a housekeeper but I really think God is telling me to use that money on something else. I'm not sure what it is just yet... maybe it's this. We are going to work on more funding soon. I have to be able to help, and right now i don't feel we've found our purpose. I know God wants us here but He hasn't showed me what to do or how to do it. I know He is just starting to use us.

I'm glad your tummy is full tonight. (and mine is too) I couldn't bare to see my family hungry or struggling like this. We are so blessed. As strange as this may sound... i think i know where the saying "I'd sell my soul to the devil" came from. It had to come from a mother watching her children starve to death and she could do nothing to help them. Well, I refuse to sell my soul to that nasty old devil because I know My God will prevail & He will show us the way.

I love you!

After dad talked to Marlaine (the director of the orphanage, Faith & Love in Action) on Wednesday, he decided that we really needed to get to the orphanage as soon as we could since she said they were almost out of food. We left at 7:30am to travel 2 hours South over the mountains to Jacmel. Jacmel is a city on the south side of the island and it is so beautiful, right on the water. This time I took motion sickness medicine, Bonine, which helped tremendously. It can be found at Wal-Mart & am a walking billboard for this medicine! When we got to the orphanage we were greeted with smiles and hugs. Most of the 65 children were in school but a few of the older ones had exam week so they were home by the time we arrived. There was a drum set that had been donated and few other instruments setting near. Dad picked up the guitar and another boy started on the drums and Henry picked up the clarinet. It was awesome that though dad couldn’t communicate with the boy, they could play the same song. We got to walk through the orphanage that was under construction while we were here in Oct. and they have made much progress. The floors were beautiful shinny, pink, grey and white tile and many of their rooms were coming together nicely. We also saw the girl’s house behind the boys and it too was coming together. It’s very obvious that there have been some great construction teams & churches donating time and funds for these projects. The most impressive project that I saw was a huge wall right behind both buildings. As you may remember, when we were here in Oct, a tropical storm hit Haiti pretty bad and erosion was a huge problem for the land the orphanage is on. They decided to prevent this in the future and it looks as though it will work. I also took photos of all of this so you can see what I am talking about. Before we left to get the food Mom & Dad where going to purchase, Mom sat down with Marlaine to calculate how many of each item they would be able to purchase with the money that was donated by many of you. As Marlaine continued to name items needed she kept saying “the money is multiplying”. This was our prayer before we even left the states. We also asked many of you to pray this same prayer and you did. God heard our plea and He multiplied the money donated. Tears filled my eyes and I had to leave the room with emotion. It’s amazing how these people including the children are so faithful in their prayers. Marlaine mentioned that all of the children are allowed to walk through the food depot at anytime, as they notice the food decreasing, their prayers continue strong. They continue to thank God for His many blessings, and ask that He continue to provide. She said, as a mother, she wishes that they didn’t have to have the stress of wondering if they will continue to have the food that they need to survive. Yet on the other hand, she also said it was awesome for the children to witness their prayers being answered right before their eyes. I look back on my childhood and as an adult I am thankful that my parents protected me from the stress of knowing we were down to our last $5.00 or that short time we utilized food stamps so my mom could raise us instead of a day care. She said that had she put us in day care, her whole paycheck would have gone to pay for the day care, & she wanted to be home with us instead of paying someone else to raise us. She told me that daddy worked so hard, but sometimes things broke or things happened that we needed a little help to get though some hard times. Mom said this was God’s way of humbling her. My prayer is that these children never stress over how much food is in their depot. I pray that people continue to see the importance of their donations and continue to protect these children. Next, we went to the Dr. Phillip’s clinic. Dr. Phillip was the Doctor that stapled Doug’s knee in Oct. While we were there we asked him what he needed for his clinic so we could help him the next time we came. He remembered us right away and he was very pleased with all the supplies that we were able to bring to him. We thanked him again got the opportunity to pray over him and his clinic. Next we went to buy pinto beans, black beans, rice, cooking oil, spaghetti, sauce, laundry soap, propane, flour, corn meal, sugar, children’s milk, formula, canned herring, & goats. We took one trip to get half the items and then mom & I got out so they would have more room for the second trip to the store. As we came inside the children still weren’t home from school. I think this was the day that our traveling caught up to me. I laid down on a few chairs side by side and took a snooze. As I heard the children start to come in, mom woke me. They all gathered and thanked us through song. They sang songs in Creole and in English. I truly felt, as tears filled my eyes again, that they knew exactly what the words meant that they were singing in English. They sang, “Give thanks with a grateful heart, give thanks to the Holy One, give thanks because of what the Lord has done for us. Give thanks with a grateful heart, give thanks to the Holy One, and give thanks for giving Jesus Christ, His Son. And now, let the weak say I am strong, let the poor say I am rich, because of what the Lord has done for us, Give thanks.” If you really look at these words, it really says it all. We give thanks to God because of his Ultimate gift, the sacrifice of His Son… and that through him all things are possible. The weak can be strong, the poor can be rich in Him, and only though Him. After observing this orphanage Doug and I were completely convinced that because of the way that Marlaine, Henry and the other adults raise these children God continues to care for them. The children are taught on a daily basis by example. They teach them how to be faithful, how to pray, how to trust that God will provide, how to be servants, & how to love one another. These children have the structure and discipline and their instruction book is the Bible. Many of them can play drums, guitar, clarinet, tambourine and other instruments as well. They are getting a well rounded education and skills that they will need in the future. God has blessed this orphanage and I pray that you continue to help support this cause.

Doug, Amy, Rita & Sandy headed out of CV at 7:30am to get into to PAP at a decent time. Doug drove and I rode shotgun so we could get used to the city and where all the stores were located. I had a map that was pretty detailed & Sandy wanted to be sure I could navigate confidently. We arrived in the city around 9:00am and we missed most of the traffic.

Doug learned quickly what a vehicle looked like without break lights. We were about 6 inches from their bumper! He did great driving and maneuvering around huge rocks, man holes with no covers & pot holes that will swallow you, pedestrians that DON’T have the right of way, and crazy drivers with little traffic laws or speed limits. I think running on the fire department really gave him experience he needs to drive here. He knew exactly where the edge of our truck was and seemed to want to show me how close he could get before I would say “woe woe woe” or “Douglas” and then he would laugh at me. There are always close calls in Haiti, but in the city you really aren’t going fast enough to hurt anything maybe just a fender bender.

Our first stop was Mega Mart, where I will be buying bulk food for our groups before they come in. There is a nice array of American, Dominican, and other countries food. You have to really pay attention to the prices because one country isn’t consistently the cheapest. Kraft Mac & Cheese was only $.79 US so I had to pick up a few boxes of that!:) There are a lot of different items at Mega Mart. We got some plastic Rubbermaid “dressers”, hangers, canned goods, pasta, dishes, pots and pans, silverware, mop & bucket, BLEACH and cleaning supplies, & hardware supplies for the mission. Stop #2 was called One Stop. This is where we could exchange our money form US to Haitian and found some fresh apples, meat, and rat/mouse poisoning. Stop #3 was lunch time. We went to a restaurant called Epi Dor were it had hamburger combo meals that cost 99 gourde which is equivalent to $2.71 US, pizza, and ice cream. We all got a cheeseburger, coke and fries and Doug tried the bubblegum and Mom tried the dark chocolate ice cream. The hamburgers were very thin and the buns are firm and very thick…It was all very tasty, nothing to complain about. Stop#4 was right across the street at Deli Mart. It had lots of groceries, Baygon (insect killer) to spray our rooms at night, and a fresh deli. We got some salami and cheese… and I even asked for one lb. without Sandy translating for me. Stop #5 was at Casami. They sell furniture and appliances there. We found a small microwave here then priced a padded rocker and a grill. They seemed to be priced high and we decided to look at other stores. ALMOST everything that we bought all day was price double or triple what you might spend in the US. Stop #6 was at ERF, which is a hardware store down stairs and a furniture store upstairs. We thought we would just look at prices since we only had a tiny bit of space left in the truck. After looking we found a chair that looks like an office chair but it reclines a little and includes a padded ottoman and a cloth chair with a metal frame that also has a slightly padded ottoman. We decided to get just these two cheapo chairs instead of getting a lazyboy type chair or couch since it is sooo expensive to buy real furniture here. We were just happy to be able to get our feet up at the end of the day. We determined that we had just enough space in the back seat of the truck to put both boxed chairs, as long as I rode upfront between Doug and Sandy and then Mom rode in the backseat. The way home was pleasantly uneventful. We arrived right around 5:30pm just in time to put all the groceries away before a potato soup supper at 6. We were gone for about 11 hours and I enjoy shopping but my little puppies were crying. Everyday shopping in Haiti is like shopping on Black Friday, something you won’t find me doing in the states!! (Brittany, Megan & Lisa could have handled this with no problem!!) Our refrigerator still wasn’t working properly so we put all the cold items in the little chest freezer. Sandy passed Doug with flying colors for his first driving day! While we were gone all day Dad, & two strong Haitian men, Michelle & Vaddy (calls my dad “daddy”) continued to paint inside our house, then dad built a shelf in our bathroom and our bedrooms. You will see these in the pictures.

Bean’s and Rice, Beans and Rice…I already miss the food and the thought of a pizza makes me hungry! BUT, Tonight all the missionaries had a welcome home Party for us and they invited a lot of our Haitian friends.... they (missionaries) already taught us that we can buy a lot of different American food and sometimes milk in PAP!!

Currently, there are 6 missionaries at Christianville (CV)

Dr. Ryan Price, is an optometrists from Alabama. He is 26 and he and Doug get along great. Ryan has been here since June of 2007 and does a great job running the optometry clinic here.

Stacey Bloomer, is an RN from Pittsburg, Kansas. She just arrived in January 2008. She is 23… I finally know someone that is always colder than me! When it is breezy or rainy she gets cold. Yet, cold here is only about 70*.

Teresa Murphy is a P.A. from Wisconsin. She is a little older than us….& has been in Haiti for about 7 years. I have already learned a lot from her. She has a great laugh and it is very contagious.

Jim and Sandy are the Doctor & Nurse couple from Kansas. They have lived in Haiti for about 10 years and know the culture very well. I’m guessing they are a few years older than my parents. Sandy has played a huge role in helping us get to Haiti. She has given me lists, ideas and info that were much needed.

Miss Sue is the wise ol’ owl. I’m guessing she is almost 70 and is a great example of a faithful servant. She is the director of the orphanage. She has 7 babies ages 3 and under and about 25 older children.

All of the missionaries here have already reminded us to pray and ask God’s guidance in all that we do…The encouragement and hospitality they have shown us is more than I ever expected. God is so good to put us in this place.

Tomorrow Doug learns how to drive in the city and I have to navigate for him. We are going to the market and all of the shopping stops in Port Au Prince. (PAP) You know how I told you that I emailed the missionaries that were here before us? … She told me that she had left so many supplies especially KITCHEN supplies that we will really need? Also a fridge & washer.... well most of the supplies were taken and we have NOTHING!! The fridge isn't working right now but it is fairly new so I think Dad can fix it. The washer is also sick right now but hopefully we can nurse it back to health soon... I am SO thankful for the mattress pad… we have a pretty decent mattress only purchased last year but a little too firm for Doug and I. The pad we brought makes it comfortable.

We started painting the house today. All the walls are nasty since the orphanage babies lived there and we think they loved to finger paint with their food?? So the paint was necessary! We cleaned so much and the bathroom was FIRST on the agenda. Now we can actually get clean taking a shower. Dad and Doug cut about a 1/4 inch off all the doors in the house because you could only open them about half way and then they would get stuck… funny huh? We pulled all the drawers out of the kitchen and washed them out.

Tomorrow after shopping we will try to finish the kitchen and that may be all we get finished but we hope to have the painting done by the weekend so we can play. We want to go see Ivanithe in Grand Goave and go to the orphanage that Mom and Dad helps in Jacmel. It feels so funny sleeping under a mosquito net… very romantic feeling though (wink)! Just ask Mike & Patty H. about their mosquito net!! I am really excited for tomorrow so I’m going to bed but we’ll write and send pictures soon.

We woke at 2:45 am to leave the house at 3:30. Before leaving we prayed for safe travels, the safety of our family and friends in the US, and we prayed that all of our bags that we attempted to weigh on a bathroom scale the night before would be 50 lbs or less so we wouldn’t have to pay for the additional weight. Pap took us to the airport and we arrived around 4:45am. After unloading all 8 duffel bags and 4 carry-ons we weighed them with our fingers crossed. Every bag was 47-52 lbs so we could transfer some of the items to the underweight bags. Every bag ended up being 50 lbs or less. God is so good. We really didn’t want to use money to pay for overweight bags that we could use buy beans and rice to feed hungry children in the orphanages.

This trip was the easiest trip to Haiti that I had ever experienced. Every time we would get off of one plane, the next gate would be right in front of us. We were so tired and God really protected us and prevented us from running like crazies through the airport to catch the next flight. In Miami we had plenty of time to gather our bags and we ate “our last supper” at Chili’s. We slept on most of the flights and took a landing approach in Haiti that I had never taken before. It was kinda like we were in a tornado. I don’t think that our pilot had ever landed in Haiti before, or maybe he was just as exhausted as we were. Regardless, God landed us safely and down the stairs and onto the tarmac we walked. The hot windy air blew in our faces and the smell of Haiti began.

As we walked to the airport mom & I noticed a “white” women traveling by herself. When we got into the Customs line she came up behind us. We asked her name and where she was going. She said her name was Dixie and she was going to an orphanage that we weren’t familiar with & she really wasn’t sure where it was since she had never been to Haiti before. She said an American women, named Barb was going to be here to pick her up but she didn’t know what she looked like. After talking to her, she seemed to be very independent and has gone on several mission trips but we were still concerned that she was by herself so we told her to tag along and we would help her find her ride.

If you have never been to Haiti before then you wouldn’t know exactly what to expect. I will try to explain. After the long walk on the hot tarmac, you then walk into a narrow, cool room where you wait in a long line for Customs to stamp your passport. Then you are shuffled into a huge, hot, crowded, nasty smelling room and expected to find your luggage rolling by you, while being told to move over, move over, move over in a language that you can’t understand but a body language that you can… very impatient and rude. You have to stack your five-foot long luggage on little carts that may only be one our two feet wide. Remind you, we have 8 duffel bags and 4 carry ons. Dad and Doug each grab a cart while mom and I guard the carry on bags. After sweating profusely, we find all of our luggage and then Dixie’s and head toward the exit.

Now we get into another line that requires the Customs form that we filled out on the airplane and also the luggage stickers that lets them know how many bags you should have. They then ask you what is in the bags and hope that your answer is correct so they won’t pull you aside and search through all your bags and confiscate anything they think they should. Next is the fun part! You walk outside and it may as well be a billion people trying to touch your bags so they can say they helped and they should get a tip. There are also “big bosses” and you are to pick one. They have a group of men that help you get the luggage loaded into your truck and keep the other men back, then you are to tip only the “big boss” and he is to divide the tip fairly. This is so crazy because there is usually a fight between Haitians trying to get your business. It’s awful that they have to argue over something that we see as so minute, yet this may be their only chance to have enough money to feed their families. Please thank God today that you have more then enough food in your pantry and clothes in your closet… and if for some reason you were to lose your job, there are programs in place that won’t let you and your family starve. As much as we complain about our government, we have the strongest most blessed government in the world. Thanks be to God.

Dear Supporters,

You are a Blessing!! Because of you, we have reached our two year financial goal. We would like to thank you so much for all your support but it doesn’t stop here. Here are a few ways you can contact us with updates on how God is working in your lives, and you can also see how your gifts are being used to help build the Kingdom of God in Haiti.

  1. Our email address is twobuckeyesinhaiti@yahoo.com Please email us with praises and prayer requests. We would really like to hear what is going on in your lives and would like the opportunity to pray for you too!
  2. Our blog site is www.twobuckeyesinhaiti.blogspot.com this is where you can see what we are up to in Haiti. This site is under construction but within a few weeks you should see pictures, prayer requests and journal entries. Warning! This could cause you to love more, laugh more, or push you to do more for Jesus. Don’t view if your heart isn’t willing to be “transformed”.
  3. Please Note that any future or MONTHLY donations can be made out to HCP (Haitian Christian Projects) for tax purposes. Please continue to mail to the address at the bottom of this letter.

Our Latest Update:

On April 13 we departed Ohio. We are in South Carolina and met up with Amy parent’s (Jeff & Rita) to complete accounting information and last minute “to do” lists. Since Jeff and Rita will be joining us for a few weeks, we will also be able to use their luggage space to take an additional 200 lbs of supplies needed during our move. On April 22 we will fly out of Charleston, SC. Please keep the Haitian people in your prayers as they are going through very hard times. The cost of food & goods have sky rocketed and demonstrators have been rioting the streets of Haiti in attempts to bring the costs back down. They don’t realize that these demonstrations are just hurting them and looters are out in full force. To give you an idea of some of the price increases… in Haitian dollars, Rice was $260 and now is $550, Cooking oil was $36 and now is $90 and Gasoline has raised to $70/gal (about $10 US/gal) Can you imagine paying $9 US for a gallon of milk?? Our prayer is that God will multiply their money or multiply their goods. We also pray that they get through these hard times acknowledging daily that God is in control and through Him all things are possible.

Many thanks and blessings to you!!

Lots of love,
