DOES ANYONE CARE ABOUT HAITI?

The protests continue in the streets of Haiti.  The protestors want the president of Haiti to step down because he is accused of corruption and the economy of the country is in shambles.  More than forty people have been killed in the protests while gasoline, food, and drinking water are scarce.  The schools have been closed for months so over two million children are at home.  I have attempted to send some funds to Pastor Charlie to help him and his family and the orphan children he serves but the funds are stalled at the Western Union office; most businesses remain closed.   The country is on the verge of collapse.  Humanitarian efforts are hindered  because the roads are blockaded with burning tires.  This is a very dismal picture of a beautiful nation.  The people are hungry and suffering while the nations around them seem to be just watching.  Does anyone care about Haiti?

 

I know that the Christian Church cares and New Covenant in particular has sent Mission Teams to Haiti for a number of years.  Bro. O.B. Samuel and I had to postpone our trip this month because it is simply too dangerous to travel there at this time.  We would go anyway but we have our own families and the responsibility of a church family to consider as well.  Other nations just don’t seem to be anxious to do anything to help the people of Haiti.

 

Nations are the fifth divine institution that God established in the Book of Genesis to help suppress or hold down evil in the world.  The five divine institutions are Individual Responsibility, Marriage, Family, Human Government and Nations.  The other nations in the world are failing the nation of Haiti.  Therefore, evil is flourishing in the little island nation just 800 miles south of Miami.  Bad things happen when good people do nothing, but good things happen when good people stand up for what is right.  I believe that the same can be said for Nations.  Please pray for the people of Haiti.

 

Blessings to All,
