Bringing Hope to Haiti

God is our hope in times of adversity. He is the true source of love, truth, peace, and all that is good. We pray that God will redeem the current situation in Haiti by bringing many children and their families to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

We wanted to provide the CEF family with updates on the situation with our workers in Haiti, how they can pray, and how they can help. We have included that information here and thank you for joining us in prayer for our workers and the children of Haiti.

Latest Updates from our National Director of Haiti Jacky Gilles

How is the violence in Haiti affecting our workers and their ministry?
Currently four of our workers are obligated to leave their houses because of gang violence uprising into their areas. It’s a serious situation that impacted sadly our ministry. We were obligated to cancel at least three training courses. Two Teaching Children Effectively 1 (TCE1) and one course for CYIA.

What is the biggest need of the children in Haiti?
Currently children in Haiti are facing many challenges. In many areas in Port au Prince, the capital of Haiti, for almost one month children couldn’t go to school. A lot of children are in need of physical and spiritual food. We strongly believe we must stand with them, in order to bring the good news of Jesus Christ, which is the only hope for this generation.

We believe, in each dark situation, God always use His servants to show up and bring hope. We want to take advantage of this situation to mobilize church leaders and other stakeholders to invest into the life of this generation and the next. It’s an opportunity to use this nightmare to shift our perspective, in order to equip parents, children, and ministry leaders to reach the next generation for Christ.
