HAITI UPDATE by Renes Deciere May 19. 2020

Dear Friends,

I hope you are doing well! Our family is well.

As you know the focus of the media today is on COVID 19. People are infected and many of them died. This pandemic is a big challenge for the World. Le COVID 19, after 2 months of its presence in Haiti, appears to be picking up speed in Haiti. As of May 19th there are 596 reported cases and 22 deaths. Comparing with other Countries, it sounds good so far. But considering the potential capacity of propagation and transport in the street markets and in the industries, the situation can be hard for Haiti. There is no real isolation in Haiti. Only the schools and the Churches do not function. If we consider also the social and economic precariousness of Haitians, the possibility to have a lot of deaths is obviously there. What is really good, the Church leaders keep praying. They cry out for God’s grace and compassion for Haitian people. He is god, He is good. He is our comfort and our Hope. He controls everything.

We serve our congregation through the social media, phone calls and visits. They are doing well. We have shared some money with 30 families to buy food. The church are leaders teaching the congregation not only spiritually but also educating about COVID 19 to limit propagation. APCH Board and the beneficiaries of PWH support are grateful to our donors. Though, people in the USA are really touched by COVID 19, you keep sending faithfully your donations which are making a difference in the life of many people. Thank you so much! May God bless United States and Haiti! May He protect His Ministries in the both sides, USA and Haiti for His glory. Psalm 46:2-3

Are you familiar with these verses?

God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble (PS. 46.1)

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty (Ps. 91.1)

I know them by heart (in French)

But my brother Fanel and I have experienced these verses on Sunday January 12, 2020, on our way back from church.

Four men stopped us by surprise and one of them pointed his gun on us and said “Pastor you are dead today”. My answer was “In the name of Jesus you can not do anything with your gun. The power of the Lord will be showed today”. I could see their panic after my statement. They decided to leave and one of them shot while they were leaving. The projectile hit my pick-up truck. God got us out of this situation safe and sound.

May His name be praised and blessed! Our God is great.
Thank you for the prayers.
They have great effect!

Thank you to our partner Churches in the USA. We also want to thank the Lord for the success of our journey to the US in the fall of 2019, visiting our partner Churches. It was a good experience.

We praise and thank God.
