WILL YOU PRAY WITH US?
UPDATED JULY 14TH, 2021
“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (John 1:5)
We’ve been overwhelmed by the outpouring of encouragement from Healing Haiti supporters. Thank you for praying for Haiti.
While the path ahead remains shrouded in shadows, we will continue clinging to the hope of Christ (the “Light of the World”). There are many questions at a time like this, but we believe that Christ is ultimately the answer to all of them.
Whatever unfolds over the next days, weeks, or months, we will continue to continue living out our mission: Levering resources to elevate and unify Haitian families, so that the cycle of poverty is broken and the fabric of the community is strengthened.
Mounting challenges will only deepen our resolve. After all, it’s Jesus who showed us—the darker the night, the brighter the light.
UPDATED JULY 7TH, 2021
News broke overnight that Haitian President Jovenel Moise was assassinated in his home. While there remain many unknowns, we can report that all Healing Haiti staff are safe. We thank God for that.
This tragedy only deepens the sense of uncertainty surrounding Haiti. There are no easy answers that can “fix” this heartbreaking situation.
We simply need God’s intervention.
Over the past few weeks, the pastors and lay leaders of Hope Church have been praying fervently together. Their prayers have echoed the words of 2 Chronicles 20:12, which has become an anthem for their congregation. We invite you to join them in praying this prayer:
“Our God, will you not judge them? For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.” (2 Chronicles 20:12)
God, we confess on our desperate dependance upon you, especially in this moment.
While it may be tempting to look at the headlines and abide in fear, we will look to you, to your power and perfect timing. Loving Father, our eyes are on you.
