“…through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.”

(II Corinthians 9:11)

friends at Double Harvest Haiti.


Dear Ministry Partners for Haiti,

   I have just received these pictures from Pastor Esperandieu Pierre. They are packing TODAY/Wednesday in preparation for their second deployment TOMORROW/Thursday. They have bought most all of the food items locally, thus helping the local economy – a “double blessing” for everyone, and will be leaving at 4:00 AM in the morning for another long 7-hour drive South to the hardest hit area. Do be praying for them, as there have been some attempted hijackings by thieves and thugs on UN trucks. So pray for “divine protection” on Pastor Pierre’s convoy of supplies!

“A father to the fatherless,
defender of widows is God in His Holy Dwelling.
He sets the lonely in families…”

(Psalm 68:5-6)


Kathmandu, Nepal

Dear Ministry Partner,

   In our last eNewsletter, we were in Delhi, India, at the Angurah Children’s Home. I was in the midst of writing this second report on another of our Children’s Homes in Nepal when Hurricane Matthew hit Haiti. So I put this report on the back burner in order to immediately focus on our on-going Hurricane relief work there. Now that those efforts are taking place on a daily basis, I wanted to send you this report on the Himali Children’s Home in Kathmandu, Nepal. I think you will be blessed and encouraged.

“All these are the beginning of birth pains.”

(Matthew 24:8)

Pastor Esperandieu Pierre meeting with Hurricane Matthew victims 
in Les Cayes, South Haiti.

Dear Ministry Partner,

   It is sort of ironic to me that this latest hurricane was named “Matthew” – an important Biblical name, as you well know. Matthew’s following Jesus was certainly a “hurricane event” in the world of his day! In His Mount Olivet Discourse in the Gospel of Matthew on “end times,” Jesus said that diverse and devastating natural disasters like earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados and floods – would happen more and more frequently on a global scale. Hurricane Matthew is but the latest – but not the last, in this “stormy forecast” for planet earth!
