But I have to ask myself, what would I do if my brothers or sisters were starving? What if my friends did not know Jesus and were perishing apart from him? What if they were dying because of poor conditions or lack of healthcare? The answer to each of these questions is...
The truth is, I know that these numbers could mean nothing, but it does scare me for Haiti and for our kids. The country is so ill-prepared for something like Covid-19, and I cannot imagine what may come from this. That is the purpose of today's blog. To ask for your prayers. I know that our country is under attack, and even as things begin to open up, there is still an uneasiness about things. With that said, please continue to pray for America, but do one thing for me...
Add Haiti To Your Prayers!
Many orphanages in Haiti do not exist primarily to take care of children. In fact, many exist because morally corrupt men or women want to take advantage of the suffering of children and make money off of people who truly want to help.
Unfortunately, the information above is more of an understatement than a mere statement of truth. I would venture to say that the vast majority of orphanages in Haiti are at the very least a means of exploitation for money and at the worst something much more evil than that and this applies to Haitian and American run orphanages alike. To take advantage of and to exploit children, no matter the purpose, is one of the worst things I can think of, and it is important to call out this practice when it exists.
Covid-19 has come to Haiti, but it is really difficult to ascertain how much of an effect it has already had or how bad it could possibly get. The only thing we can do for now is pray and then wait for reports from people on the ground in the midst of it.
