HBM September 2019 Update

Gas Shortage in Haiti –
Romans 8:28

Life in Haiti isn’t easy and this past week has reminded us that at HBM. The government in Haiti has been unable to afford gas from outside countries which has created a massive gas shortage in the entire country. The gas shortage has left people without transportation, electricity, food, and water.

   Without gas, some people have to walk for hours in order to get to the market and buy food. Many of the roads are being blocked and people are unable to leave their homes. The cost of food has gone up by 40% and majority of Haitians are unable to afford food due to this increase. The lack of gas has left the country hurting and most importantly, peoples lives are at stake. 

   At HBM, our staff are feeling the weight of this crisis. The people you know and love are having to remain at home due to lack of transportation and the dangers of leaving. We ask you to join us in praying fervently for Haiti’s government and the people. We know that God works all things together for good and we are resting in this promise. 

   We want to ask you to join us in praying every day for the next week at 8:28am and 8:28pm. The reason for this specific time is the verse in Romans 8:28-

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

Join us in praying for God’s children all throughout Haiti.

   The Haitian staff at HBM have asked for their friends in the States to pray for them as they struggle through this difficult time. 

   If you are interested in helping financially or by sending supplies, let us know! We know God can use this for good!
