November 2019 Update

Thank you for your response to the humanitarian crisis in Haiti. The people of Caneille are so blessed to have you standing with them. The situation has not changed there, except for the fact that they have been able to eat because of the rice we purchased by the $2,700 donation we sent! (Unfortunately, the email you received previous to this one was supposed to have gotten to you on Nov. 4th, but I must have forgotten to press "send". So sorry about that. It is important for you to know how your gifts are being used.)

Previously, Pastor Bastia had been giving rice to those who are part of the church and the school, but this time he was able to give to all the families in the community of Caneille! What a blessing and a witness of God's goodness to the people there as Bastia was able to share Jesus' love with them.

Last week we were able to send another $1,800 to buy more food! Praise God for His provision through His people here in the U.S.

More donations have come in, so we will wire more money in 2 weeks if you would like to help. We are also raising money for an ultrasound machine for the new clinic that we will need to begin training people to use.

God bless you for your support of this mission. We will continue to work on the clinic building as finances come in.

Giving Tuesday: The perfect day to show Jesus' love to people desperately in need both physically and spiritually. CHMM gives 100% of your donations to help the people of Caneille, Haiti.

October 2019 Update

As most of you know, we again had to cancel our trip to Haiti that was scheduled to leave this Friday. It is so disheartening to see what is going on there and not be able to go down and help. The civil war has brought the country to a standstill. Public schools have been closed since September, banks have limited funds and hours, government offices are closed, and anyone employed by the government isn’t getting paid. Major roads are blocked by the protestors and most hospitals have cut services or closed entirely. Food and gas are in short supply and prices make it unaffordable to most. The people say that the current crisis is worse than anything they have ever experienced. Pastor Bastia says that the people have “NO HOPE”.

It is no coincidence that our clinic will be called “Clinic OF HOPE”. This is something the people so desperately need. Currently everything is at a standstill with the building because we are unable to send any American teams there. We have sent $3,700 to help with the food and gas crisis there in Caneille. Pastor Bastia has been giving rice to all the families in the church. The School of Grace there at Calvary Chapel Caneille is managing to keep its doors open and today he began to help the school children’s families.

In the meantime, we would like to raise money to lay tile throughout the clinic and dig a septic system. This will be done by Haitians who desperately need the work right now. Secondly, I would like to ask for donations to help feed more people in Caneille and to buy gas for emergency transportation. I am hoping to wire money to Pastor Bastia by next week.

Things look quite bleak. We don’t really know how long this will go on, but we are packed and ready to go when the doors open up again. Please pray that the people would see God’s hand of love and grace on them as they see their prayers answered. Also, that this uprising would come to an end and that God would be glorified.

There is a rebellion going on in Haiti against the current President and we aren't seeing anything about it in our US news. The people are protesting because the price of food and gas has skyrocketed over the past year and they are literally starving to death. There are political agendas fueling the uprising, but the results are always the same--the people suffer. Please pray that the people will get the food they need to survive and that there would be peace so the travel advisory will be lifted. Currently we are unable to go to Caneille to work on the clinic, but we are sending money to help feed the people in that community. We are so blessed to have Pastor Bastia there, a man of integrity with a huge heart for his people. He has already used the $500 we sent to buy rice and distributed it to 140 families in Caneille! I will be wiring more money on Thursday. Right now there is no end in sight, so we will continue to help in any way we can. God sees and He hears the cries of His people!
