Helping Refugees

A sign where we distributed the food and water to a refugee camp in PAP.

This past Sunday we spent in Port Au Prince giving out water, food, clothes, and other supplies as well as sharing the love of Jesus with those living in the tent villages that have popped up all over the city. Thousands who have lost their homes now live in make shift tents made of sheets and tarps. We went with a group of young Haitians from Montrouis and gave out over 200 gallon jugs of clean water and 100 pounds of food. It was not always organized or safe but we were able to help many.




Sleeping under the tarps and sheet tents in the streets. A common sight right now in the city.


One of the thousands of houses that collapsed in the quake.



Cooking the food over charcoal the night before we went.

UN peace keepers on patrol to help keep order.


The boxes of rice and beans with chicken we gave to the hungry waiting in the refugee camp.

200 gallons of water we were able to give the thirsty people in the city.


People lined up to get the aid we were distributing. Thank you to everyone that has donated and given so we can continue to help with the needs of the people. We have 2 refugee camps we are setting up here in Montrouis to care for about 200 refugees that have left the city. We will be helping to feed them everyday as well as meet their physical and medical needs. Thank you so much for your prayers for these precious people that have lost everything and need to see the love of Jesus.

We wish we were there helping you everyday!!! Our constant thoughts and prayers are with you all. We may be "back at home" but we have certainly left part of our hearts in Haiti. Please be careful but do all you can in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!
