The situation in Haiti is still dire and at this time
we can only send money to help our brothers and sisters.
We have distributed two weeks of food to over 1200 families/individuals from seven different churches/ communities and one orphanage. The people who have received the food were determined by local pastors or elders as the most nutritionally vulnerable whether they were church members or not.
One elderly gentleman in a rural village told our Field Director Lophane Laurent and Security Director Noel Duffault that he had not eaten in three days and he was praying for an angel to bring him food because he was too weak to get up to find someone who might share a little food with him. He told them that they were surely the angels he had prayed for. Both of these men have lived in Haiti all their lives and have seen and experienced hunger, but they both were greatly moved by this elderly man. Lophane and Noel are doing their best to find those who are the most in need and get food to them safely.
We would like to express our deepest thanks to all those who are supporting the people of Haiti through prayers and resources. Please ask people to not weary of doing good, these gifts of love and mercy do make an eternal difference."
Mission:Haiti Facebook post from November 4 reads: "This is Pastor Mario, aka 'The Happy Pastor' because he is always smiling. He has a congregation and orphanage in a very difficult part of Port-au-Prince. The children are some of the 38 he has in his orphanage. They were very grateful to receive food from Mission: Haiti. We were very blessed to be able to help.This food will feed the orphanage for several weeks as well as the elderly and the most needy in Pastor Mario’s area.
We want to thank Tim Hetzner of Lutheran Church Charities and all the donors that are making it possible for us to help so many people!"
Please prayerfully consider making a monetary donation to enable Lutheran Church Charities continue to send emergency funds to Haiti to help provide food for Haitian adults and children.
Thirty dollars will buy enough rice, oil, maggi, canned fish, spaghetti, and soup to feed one person two meals a day for three weeks. LCC Haiti mission partners are helping the most nutritionally vulnerable but need financial support to do so.
Join LCC as we pray for the protection of the Haitian people and our mission partners, and for peace in Haiti.
