SPECIAL REQUEST
Haiti Mission Employee Assistance
July 2020


Some of you have perhaps already seen the recent communication from Greg Edmonds (Haiti Missions Director) with an update on current conditions in Haiti.  That correspondence reads in part:
These are definitely unique days that we are in, but God is still in control.  I wanted to give you a couple of updates from the mission...

1.  Mission operations are still suspended.  We are not hosting any teams and do not plan to allow teams to return for the next couple of months.  Covid-19 is spreading rapidly now in Haiti, and both the food and financial difficulties continue to escalate.  The country has opened up the airport and some people are coming and going.  There are even some people on social media saying "C'mon Down"...literally!  This is not the time to go to Haiti.  We would greatly appreciate your prayers for both the mission and the Wesleyan Hospital as this crisis continues.  Most of our missionaries are out of Haiti at this time.  The Thede family is the only missionary presence in Haiti, and they are very isolated on their mountain.

2.  Most of you know that we pay our mission employees from the funds generated by the mission guesthouses on La Gonave and at Ortlip.  Due to the past two years of turmoil in Haiti the mission is out of money.  We had a meeting last month with the agenda of laying off part of the employees and only keeping "essential workers."  We prayed about the decision and talked it through.  We decided to make another plea for help and I am coming to you with that plea.  We need 25 individuals, churches, or groups to pledge $150 per month for the next 6 months in order to keep paying all of our mission employees.  Many of you have already given over the last 18 months and we are very grateful!  We could not have made it this far without your generosity.  If you would like to give...

Greg continues:
Thank you again for your continued prayers for Haiti.  One international group has predicted "a famine of Biblical proportions" in Haiti.  Please join us in praying for consistent rains on the summer and fall gardens, and that God would multiply the harvest!
 
God bless you all!
