Thank you for your continued prayers for Haiti as we begin to deal with the aftermath of this storm. Port-au-Prince received almost no damage. Praise God!

As you may be seeing, reports from the south are bad. The damage in many places is being compared to the earthquake of 2010. Homes have been washed away. Roofs have been torn off. Roads and bridges have been washed away. STEP has alumni serving in the south and preliminary reports from them show extensive damage.

Additionally, there is significant damage in the north where our organization here in Haiti, the UEBH, has many churches. We have a group traveling there as I write this and we should have info back from them soon.

Compounding the issue is that many of the hardest hit areas are now only accessible by plane or boat. Our friends at Mission Aviation Fellowship are flying supplies into the hardest hit areas and other crews are working to open the roads up.

Many have asked us “Where do we give?”

Crossworld has set up a Haiti Relief Account so we can have funds to begin helping our UEBH churches and our STEP alumni get back on their feet. If you are interested in giving to this effort, Becca and I would love for you to give there.

Thanks for your partnership as we serve our brothers and sisters here in Haiti, we’re so grateful for the opportunity to serve here.

Watch the video below to see an update from our Haitian leadership here on the effects of this storm. We shot this yesterday on the STEP campus.
