An Update from Pastor St. Luc in Haiti …
Pastor St. Luc does not recommend any travel to Haiti until after the March elections. Street gangs, road gangs, and violence are everywhere since the earthquake and the assassination of President Moise.
With the support that Pastor receives, he has been able to assist people affected by the earthquake in providing medical assistance and help in reconstructing damaged residences. He also assists with some schools in the Central Plateau and with Haitian schools started in the beginning of September. Over 200 students returned to Labastille to a celebration with all of them receiving a backpack, pens, pencils, and notebooks to start the year.
Continue to pray for Pastor St. Luc and his ministry in Haiti and for the country reeling from the effects of the earthquake and all the social unrest and violence in Haiti.
