Continue to Pray~

Hello, well nothing has happened since Tuesday and we are all very grateful. Thank you Lord. Apparently the mayor of Grand Goave held a meeting with all the persons involved and well nothing was resolved. Supposedlly he gave us the go ahead to continue working on the wall but we aren't doing anything at the moment. All work has stopped even work on the Haiti Arise compound. Marc asked for that to happen until he comes back from Canada on Monday. So it's really quiet around here with no work going on, no classes or school too. It's really different for sure.
Marc went to Canada to meet with some of the board members for Haiti Arise. Pray for him and the board for wisdom and that he would recieve a lot of encouragment during this short trip.
You wouldn't believe the rumors that are going around Grand Goave about this situation. I will just give you a few examples, some lady from our church called Lisa this morning asking if she is okay. She heard Lisa had been beaten up. The other rumor is that Marc and Lisa have packed up and headed back to Canada. So it's interesting. :)

People in Grand Goave continue to protest the political situation. Apparently there was no final announcement about who the deputy is going to for Grand Goave so both sides are upset. They like blocking the roads with big trucks and piles of rocks. Hmmmm we don't quite understand why these things continue happening....... But we trust that God is in control and things will settle down soon.
We had a great prayer service last night at church and God spoke to my heart and told me not to be scared because he's watching over me. It was very comforting.
We thank you for all your prayers and concern. We are safe and continue to prepare things here for the next team and will head to the beach tomorrow.
well that's the update for today. Thanks for reading.


  1. Dear Chris & Rebecca:
    I've been reading about the trials you are having right now. I am reminded of Nehemiah 4 when the enemies came against the people of Israel while they were building the wall. Just as God was faithful to his people then, I know that He will be faithful now. We are standing beside you in prayer and I hope our group from the Father's House will be able to come to help again soon.
    In Christ, Jim Parmer

  2. Hi Chris & Rebecca,
    Thank you for posting pictures - we were all very shocked and saddened by the events that have happened since we left. We are praying for you and will continue to do so - "The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him". We are grateful that all of you are safe and unharmed and we are trusting God to continue to protect all those at Haiti Arise.
    LeAnne & Rod
