Responding After Tragedy
// New Missions
Words cannot express the overwhelming feeling of seeing the destruction in Haiti following the earthquake. However, at our High School campus, an international medical relief team comprising doctors from Japan, Canada, the United States, and Cuba are meeting the ongoing medical needs of those in the Leogane region. The medical needs are great, and the medical staff at New Missions is busier than ever.
Feeding our school children remains our top priority. Thankfully, we have helping hands with the U.S. military based at New Missions in Haiti. From MREs (meals ready to eat) to rice, baby food, and peanut butter, food continues to be distributed at all our 22 school and church locations. Can you imagine the excitement at the school when the military truck pulled up to distribute food? God has sent an army for such a time as this.
On Sunday, February 14, Charlie DeTellis (in Haiti) received 55 tons of food–including rice, beans, and cooking oil necessary to provide one month’s supply of food to each of our New Missions schools.
When it comes to tragedy, hope is right behind, and the love of Jesus never fails! Thank you for standing with us. Your faithfulness is truly making a significant difference. Please continue to pray. It’s time for all of Haiti to find hope in God.
