An urgent prayer request comes from Pastor Dumont Cardichon, pastor and church planter among the Haitians of South Florida.
He writes: “Haiti is waiting [for] Hurricane Matthew today. The sky is already foggy and all the country is so vulnerable. Your special prayer is requested [in this] emergency.”
Update (11:30 a.m.):
From Breathe Partners (formerly CPR-3)
As you may know, Hurricane Matthew is approaching Haiti and it a very large, potentially deadly storm. Breathe Partners will monitor this storm closely and will update our Facebook and social media feeds as needed.
Please be in prayer with us for everyone in Haiti as they weather the storm. Our hearts are heavy as we consider the impact this will have on so many families whose homes are simply made of tarps and tin and can barely weather a simple rain. The winds and the flooding will be the largest obstacles for those in our areas. The country will sustain a higher risk of further damage.
As a part of the family within the HaitiOne network we will do anything we can to provide necessary supplies as needed to those impacted by this disaster.
The safety of our teams is paramount. The team from Pennsylvania is leaving a day early (Sunday morning.) The teams from Ohio arrive on Wednesday, October 5. The storm should have passed and at this time all is a ‘go.’ If a team is on the ground it is possible that itinerary could change to include ‘Disaster eMERGEncy’ services to care for the people who had suffered any devastation.
