Update (October 24, 2016)
In general, Haiti is in turmoil. Although there are other countries sending goods, there are reports of individuals stealing trucks that are bringing aid from other countries resulting in some of the goods not reaching their destinations.
After receiving information from Juan Pimentel, National Overseer of Haiti, we are grateful to report that we have not received any bad news regarding any of our Church members and friends. Brother Pimentel will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they are available. We are thankful for God’s hand of protection during this natural disaster. Let us all continue to pray for all of the citizens of Haiti as they work to recover from Hurricane Matthew.
One local church did suffer some damage and the pastor lost some livestock, however Emergency Funds were sent to assist him and alleviate the situation.

Please pray for the saints and residents of Haiti that are bracing themselves for Hurricane Matthew, a powerful Category 4 storm with winds of one hundred forty (140) miles per hour. Matthew is supposed to make landfall today, and there are concerns over damaging winds, flash floods, landslides, and lack of power, food, water, and supplies.
It was only a few years ago (2010) that Haiti was devastated by a powerful earthquake that killed over two hundred thousand (200,000) people. More information will be forthcoming as we communicate with the National Overseer of Haiti.
