They asked for it. Over a year ago. The leaders from the nearby villages asked, "Could you help with the road?" I told them that was a tall order. The road was horrible. Terrible! It was destroying our vehicles and all other vehicles. I told them to pray that God would provide the knowledge and the equipment and the resources to fix the road. It would be harder, more complex than anything else we had done. And I didn't have a clue how to fix a two-mile road in the middle of nowhere on a poverty-stricken island.

So Much Suffering

Why do we do what we do in Haiti? One reason is because of the incredible poverty and suffering and hopelessness. A few weeks ago I was in Haiti walking through a tent city where 30,000 people still live. The needs are tremendous. They human suffering is enormous. The lack of hope is suffocating. The photos below were taken with my camera.

I returned home Tuesday night after having been in Haiti for several days. The trip included a civil engineer, two owners of construction companies, one of our Board members, the new Administrative Assistant for But God Ministries, the wife of our nurse, an electrician, and me. Much was accomplished on this trip:

 

Moved 6 families from the squalor of a tent city into their new homes at But God Ministries

Developed a plan to fix the road leading to The Hope Center

Hired a Haitian pastor for the community

Interviewed a caregiver for the orphanage

Continued the training of our new cooks and cleaning lady

Checked on the construction of the church/school and house #23.
