Hurricane Matthew Recovery - March Update

From Louis Hudson:

One of the beloved quotations that my friend Becky uses a lot says:

Statistics are one thing, but friends are another. Numbers may challenge your mind, but faces will soften your heart. And names will stick with you over time.
— Jeff Shinabarger

It is in this way I also hope that  you will not forget  the face of  Orestal Beauvoit.   He is from Les Cayes.

Hurricane Matthew did great damage to him and his family, but God had a rescue plan for him. And this plan was us.  We all in  love have gathered together as one to put a wide and wonderful smile in his face again.   Even though we are not finished yet because we didn't have enough materials, Orestal was so happy, and he said:

Mèsi, Bondye. Mèsi, Ayiti Awake. Bondye ap toujou beni nou”.

This means,  "Thank you, God.  Thank you, Haiti Awake.  May God continue to bless you."

We are very thankful to the supporters, and we hope that we will find more money to help this man have a home again.

 

Hurricane Matthew Recovery - February Update

The men were working in Les Cayes again last week.  Unfortunately many people are still living like this:

Hurricane Matthew Recovery - December Update

If you've been following the blog, you know that we've continued to work in Les Cayes, helping rebuild houses through Pastor Joseph and his church.  We're thankful for the way God has provided funds to continue to work, and we're looking forward to the future . . . particularly a trip to Jeremie in January.

Here are a few photos from Les Cayes this week.

The work of rebuilding Moline's home began on Monday.

So many others are still waiting for help.

We were also able to have a short time sharing God's word through story and song with some children.  This photo was taken right behind Moline's house.  We're excited about returning to Les Cayes this summer to hold VBS and other outreach ministries with Pastor Joseph and his congregation.

Please consider a year-end donation specifically for the post-hurricane work in Haiti.  There are so many people who still need help.

All donations to Haiti Awake are tax-deductible.  Checks can be mailed to 4630 Mockingbird Lane, Wilmington, NC 28409.  

You can help us make a difference in Haiti.

A word from our ground director, Steeve Derard

Prayer request for our brothers and sisters who live in the South department right now. specially "Les Cayes" and "Jeremi ".

This morning it's start raining seriously in Port-au-Prince. For so many of you who know what does that mean when it's raining in Haiti may have an idea.

The Hurricane Matthew left so many people homeless. We can understand what does that mean for those people in Les Cayes and Jeremi . They don't know what they are going to do in this rain season.  There is no homes, no trees, no church ,no schools where they could go and stay during the rain.  Please join your heart to mine and pray for those people.


Pray for them ,help them, visit them.


American friends, when you send money in Haiti , you help a vendor ,a taxi driver, a carpenter etc... and you help Haiti.


Haitian friends, how are you able to help our brothers and sisters?


I want to ask you to specifically pray for my friends:
1) the Nerisson family in Les Cayes
2) Charles and Nathan Family in Fond-des-blancs (south)

 

My heart is hurting right now . Do we understand what does that mean Compassion and what God means when He said He has compassion for us?

Let's ask God to give us His heart so that we can have compassion how God does.

 

Thank you to those who have given so generously.  Because of your donations, our Haitian team has been working on the ground in these areas for the last 2.5 weeks.

They will continue to work to provide relief, aid, and hope to their brothers and sisters as long as Haiti Awake has funds available for this purpose.  

Below are some of the images that capture what your giving has provided for the last 2.5 weeks.

 

We hope that you will continue to show a heart of generosity toward the Haitian people in the weeks, the months to come.  Recovery will be slow.  This effort will be a marathon, not a sprint.
