Hurricane Matthew has weighed heavily on our hearts at LEAP. Forces of nature seem to be a constant cause of worry and devastation for the Haitian people. When the 2010 earthquake hit, we devoted every resource we had to aid in international disaster relief. It is what inspired us to start our International Disaster Relief program. We will soon travel to Port-au-Prince via our Mission Program with both joy at the new Emergency Room that we recently built at Hopital Espoir and sorrow for all that was lost in the western edge of Haiti in this latest weather event. Please join us in praying for those who lost loved ones, their homes and their sense of place. May they feel the mighty presence of God’s love.
Our construction team in Haiti arrived at the hospital to quickly begin work on the vacant shell that was soon to be the new Outpatient Clinic. In addition to our team, local Haitians also worked to begin framing the walls, sheet rocking, and framing out the doors by Day Three. The team completely embraced the heart of this project that was quickly unfolding to include a very fun work site.
