I left Omaha, NE for Chicago then Fort Lauderdale to Port-au-Prince. On this trip I carried funds from Messiah Lutheran Lincoln, NE to buy food for an orphanage, plus funds for food supplies for our other supported churches, as well as other requested items including a security system andcameras for Pastor Thomas Bernard’s church and school.
Immediately after arriving in Haiti I attended the evening service at Zion, the church that meets outside of the home of Leonard Isador. This wonderful service was attended by approximately 200 people. On Friday, Leonard and I met with Pastor Thomas and Josie, who runs the House Of Hope and Love Orphanage, to talk about needs of the orphanage and transfer the needed funds to her for support. We learned that the orphanage is still without reliable electricity which affects their ability to use the pump on their well. We promised to visit the orphanage on Saturday to meet with her further about this problem. We spent the remainder of this day purchasing and delivering supplies to the neediest in the congregations and to the supported churches.
