Haiti Update - August 2021
by Pastor Chris Hinckley
Dear friends of Double Harvest,
Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. We continue to be thankful for our sponsors and pray for you often. Many of you have heard by now of the assassination of the president of Haiti on July 7th. This shocking event caused further chaos to an already unstable country. We thank you for the many prayers for our ministry and staff. By the grace of God, our staff and the workers at Double Harvest were kept safe during the upheaval. Still, the threat of violence is ever present and your prayers and support are still needed.
Dieusibon, our principal, reported that the Double Harvest school had a good year despite all the hardships. The elementary class finished June 29th and the high school finished on July 4th with the 9th and 13th grade studying for state exams. The school is scheduled to reopen on September 6th. Of course, we would love to be there for the opening to see all the children and take pictures, but traveling to Haiti has not been safe for some time. We pray that the travel bans and covid will subside so we can visit Double Harvest very soon. We have been busy shipping needed supplies for the school, farm and clinic. We are so grateful for our partners and supporters like you. And we are also grateful for our wonderful leaders in Haiti. Please continue to pray for Philippe Moyse, Dieusibon, Dr. Peter and Pastor Gary. Pray for their safety, wisdom and guidance from the Lord. And please know that they are praying for you as well. In November a team of surgeons are scheduled to serve alongside Dr. Peter. It’s been two years since we’ve had a surgical team at Double Harvest. Please pray that the situation in Haiti will stabilize to allow for more ministry workers to arrive.
We are currently on working on updating our website, contact management system and communications in order to better serve the mission and connect with our supporters. Thank you for your patience with our back office while we undergo our systems conversion.
Double Harvest School – We are grateful to the many Sponsors of the students attending the Double Harvest School in Haiti! A contribution of $45/month ($540/year) links a sponsor with a student.
