Friday afternoon David realized that Storm Fay was heading to Haiti. He called Dinel (assistant mission director) to tell him to warn everyone. Dinel had not heard anything about the storm. Dinel and his wife just returned from harvesting their corn. After Dinel heard from David he went back to continue his garden work, storms destroy gardens.
Sunday morning it was still raining on the mountain. Madam Dinel reported to David that gardens and animals were lost. A large cargo truck fromwas washed down the Ice River, killing 37 people. The river is a 45 minute drive from our mission. When we are out of water David goes there to fill out water barrels.
You may remember that last year the hunger was worse than ever due to gardens and animals being destroyed, by storms, in October and December.
From January to May we added 100 severelyto the nutritional program. When gardens are lost hunger increases. multiplies.
We will be returning to Haiti on August 28. Please pray that God will give us wisdom as we return to this situation.
Partners for Haiti,
