“…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!
The pictures below represent such a beautiful Biblical model of the Body of Christ in action, through “Haitians helping Haitians” in partnership with Americans! Thanks for helping put the resources in their hands to minister to their own people.
Packing the "Family Relief Packs", each costing $50. At right, dried fish are
included with the distributed food - pray that Jesus will again multiply them!
Food items for the "Family Relief Packs" are packed by NVM staff and local
Dried beans, high in protein, are packed to go with
the rice. At right, soap is packed for washing and cleaning.
The NVM School children help out with the loading of supplies, and another
deployment is ready for delivery. Each of these deployments help around
4,000 Haitians, who have basically lost everything in the hurricane. And as
they receive these "Family Relief Packs" costing $50 each, they give
"...thanksgiving to God" because of your generousity!
We will send more pictures of this next deployment in the days ahead. We have also dispatched our last funding ($15k) to buy metal sheeting and 2 X 4s for roofing in the next phase of rebuilding. So please continue to give as you can.
Finally for now, please forward this email to any of your family, friends, church members, business associates, civic group companions...anyone who might like to help out. As always, you can assure them that we will honor a 100% deployment of every dollar given!
In His Love & Compassion for them,
JL & Patt
PS: We are also seeking to help our Haitian and Bahamian friends in Freeport who were hammered by Matthew, so please keep them in mind for your praying and giving.
