As another school year comes to an end, we are once again reminded how grateful we are for your support. Life in Haiti can be difficult, but the children you feed are incredibly blessed by the assurance that each day they come to school, they know they will receive a nutritious meal. For many of these children, it is the only sustaining meal they can rely on every day.
Life in Haiti is not getting any easier. Social unrest and instability is leading us into hurricane season. They still struggle with the pandemic as well. As a very poor, third-world country, the Haitian government has not purchased (or received) any vaccines. It is a very scary time for the people who live there.
Though times are hard for our Haitian friends, and for all of us, we are bonded by our Father. We seek Him first for comfort, rest, and provision. We must continue to pray for the people of Haiti every day. Pray that God will protect them. Pray that God will lead them out of this crisis and that the people of Haiti will turn to Him for refuge. (“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalms 46:1). As the body of Christ, we must also stand firm with our brothers and sisters, and not abandon them. The assurance the children in our schools have by knowing we are never going to leave them, and that they can rely on our help by providing a daily meal, is very comforting. Although working in Haiti remains difficult, we hold on to God’s words in 1 Corinthians 15:58, “Be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord.”
