We would like to take this opportunity to give a short update on the situation in Jeremie Haiti, in regards to Hurricane Matthew. Our team stateside lost contact with our staff in Haiti just after 7:00 am. Before that loss in contact, we heard of damage sustained at the mission compound including our fence, water collection system and satellite. We have also heard from Pastor Eldet Tine that his home was destroyed, and they have moved in with neighbors. Mark Stockeland and Marc Donald Germeil will be traveling to Florida tomorrow in order to begin purchasing supplies to send down to Haiti for the relief effort through Agape Flights, our partner in ministry that enables us to send supplies to Haiti. See below for ways that you can help!
What can you do to help?
- Pray. Please pray for the safety of our staff, students and the people of Jeremie. Pray that we will regain connection with our team in Haiti. Pray for the storm to pass over the people of Haiti with no further damage.
- Donate. You can donate to the relief effort by clicking here choose the donate button and choosing "Hurricane Matthew Relief" from the donation menu to help us in the relief effort.
- Do not contact our Haitian staff at this time. Though we know many have a personal connection with many Haitian staff, the calls and messages distract them and others from safety measures and prevent us from staying in contact with them ourselves.
