According to weather reports, Tropical Storm Isaac will blow through Haiti this afternoon and evening. While the winds do not appear to be very strong, they are still a threat. Even more, the storm surge and heavy amounts of rain expected to fall will present Haitians will incredible challenges. Many of our churches are situated in the mountainous region of the country.
Our youngest church plant in the city of Dhue had their building completely destroyed by a massive mudslide due to heavy rainfall. The churches in Port-au-Prince, Port-de-Paix, and Cap-Haitien are all near the coastline, while other churches in Nacafe (La Gonave), Saint-Marc, Desarmes, Duval, Verrettes, and other places are located in valleys surrounding by mountains.
Please join us in praying for the safety and welfare of all Haitians and in particular the churches in our network, for their protection as well as their providential to serve their community with clean water and other practical needs to commend Christ to their neighbors.
