This update from Dr. Chuck Davis of Caribbean Vision Ministries was received late Friday:
This is a note of good news and bad news. The bad news is that Yolette’s niece died in the quake in Port Au Prince. We were with her parents last week in Cap Haitian. Our hearts and prayers are with them.
Pastor Herlin’s brother, Watson, and Herlin’s sister & baby have been found and are safe. The damage from the quake in Cap Haitian to structures and people is very minor. For that we praise God.
Communication is improving for some people. T-mobile is providing free calls to Haiti until January 31. But we still have no communication with Pastor Eddy in Port Au Prince. As soon as we can establish communication we will determine how best to help him and his congregation
Pastor Elysee Joseph will be leaving Haiti as soon as we can arrange passage.
Pray for him as he is exhausted. He has been in Haiti since the middle of December. Pastor Joseph went to Port Au Prince to claim the body of Yvonne’s sister but discovered that she had been buried in the mass grave of 7,000 people. The sights he saw has made an everlasting impression on him.
Thanks to all who have responded by financial gifts to help the people of Haiti. And thanks to those who have offered to serve on ministry teams during this time. Please continue to pray for the Haitian people. And pray that many will come to know Jesus as Savior and Lord during this time. That is the only thing that will truly change Haiti.
