If you read the news and stay up to date with current events around the world, you likely know that Haiti continues to struggle with violence and turmoil surrounding political affairs. These circumstances have been an ongoing issue for some time now. However, while the turmoil has seemed to be constant over the past couple of years, there has been an ebb and flow in the periods of violence.
We want to keep you updated with the events in Haiti and the operations at the LiveBeyond base. First and foremost, it is important to know that the vast majority of the violence and unrest is occurring in Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince. With the LiveBeyond base being located over an hours drive from Port-au-Prince, we have not been directly affected by this recent unrest. The base has been able to safely continue all operations at full capacity. Praise God!
Our hearts ache during this time of strife. Though the unrest brings us great sadness, we are thankful that the Lord has provided his hand of protection. Because the Lord provides security for the LiveBeyond base and the surrounding community, we can continue to serve the individuals in and around Thomazeau.
“The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” – Psalms 23: 1-4
Please join us as we pray for the Lord to provide peace and resolution for Haiti and its people. Through the many years that we have served the community of Thomazeau, the Lord continues to show us his steadfast faithfulness. He will deliver His will for His people. Thank you for your prayers in advance!
“Take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” – Ephesians 6:16-18
