Thank you so much for your prayers! We are convinced your prayers are what are getting us, and especially Scott, through each day! We are so grateful for those who are “bearing our burdens” in prayer.
I would like to share a few updates.
This is a common sight….. the Haitians continue to dry out their belongings in the sun.
As of late Saturday afternoon, we have running water!! Scott and his crew worked tirelessly to get our water back! It was a huge boost for us!
The next focus, is getting our compound’s electricity reestablished. This is a huge task, as there are so many wires down! Thankfully, we have Jon Zeller here helping Scott assess and plan on how to get this done. We personally have power, due to solar power on our house, but there are several missionaries who are still running generators intermittently . We are so thankful that the road from Port au Prince to Les Cayes is open, which allows food, supplies, and gas to be available!! Here’s a pic of Bri, helping put up one of the electric poles. She has been enjoying working along side her Dad. She has been getting up early every morning to start school, so she can help Scott when she is finished.
The big construction depot is being used as a storage point for oil, rice, beans, and other supplies. There is a group of 24 missionaries from other parts of Haiti, who were uneffected by the hurricane, that are working together to distribute supplies up the west shore. They are cleaning roads along the way and dropping off food to the hardest hit areas. It has been neat to support them in their efforts, by giving them a place to store their items. It’s a real picture of how the “body of Christ” can work together for the glory of God!! Each person/organization having their own function or jobs, but working together as one. Needless to say, the construction yard has been buzzing with activity from sun up to past sun down.
Please continue to pray for the Haitians. They are in such need of just the basic necessities of food and water. (They are accustomed to having breadfruit, bananas, avocados, vegetables, etc from the trees and gardens around their houses, which are all gone now.)
Pray for our continued wisdom, discernment, and safety as tensions mount and people become desperate.
Pray that God continues to give Scott, as well as the other missionaries strength, health, safety, and endurance.
