Emergency Report from Haiti – October, 2016

Dear Friends,

This report comes directly from our ministry partners, Army of Christ, in Cap H’aitien. Pastor Cebien, the founder and leader of AOC is already on the road gathering aid for believers who have lost everything.

Your help can make a difference now.

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

After our recent terrible hurricane God has called me to be an ambassador for afflicted victims in Haiti. Because of the hurricane most of the Haitian people living in the hard hit areas are sleeping under the stars with their children because they have no shelter. They are exposed to serious diseases like pneumonia and malaria. Hundreds of thousands of people are living in terrible conditions.

Many people are asking, “What can I do to help?”  Here are some ways you can make a difference. $1,000 provides a small shelter made of wood and covered with a sheet metal roof.  Any amount that you send can help with this project. Many believers in our fellowships lost all their animals which they were using for food and as a livelihood. Two hundred dollars can buy 3 goats.  These goats can reproduce quickly and through this many people can receive hope for the future. It’s wonderful to be able to spread the seed of hope to some of these victims.

Another project is to help the families who have walls for their houses but whose roofs blew off. $4 will buy a 6 ft. piece of sheet metal. Families would be given the sheet metal according to the dimensions of their house. We are praying that the Lord will give us 4,000 pieces of sheet metal. Many could find a little relief with this help.

Necessities like food. soap, Clorox and medical supplies, are all needed and can be purchased here in Haiti. We would like to build a place to give free food to those who are without food. Through these efforts we are doing what we can to alleviate some of the suffering.

In all of these projects we are praying that the Lord will open doors for us to share the gospel. Thank you for your prayers and help.

Sincerely in Christ,

Pastor Cebien Alexis
Director, Army of Christ in Haiti
