There’s a new video about Mme Soliette and “her” orphans in LaGonave, Haiti. This video tells how Mme Soliette started the orphanage, but it goes on to tell us about the hope and future for these children. (“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD , “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” Jer 29:11).
Bill Cody went to Haiti, met Mme Soliette, and God gave him a burden for giving these kids a new home. Bill is now the Chairman of a co-op called Okipe (Oh-kEE-pAy), which is a Haitian Creole word meaning, “to look after”. They are working on The Children’s Village, and have purchased 4 acres for this village. See the video at: http://okipe.org/.

Dear Haiti Team…Just a little follow up information on the Accident Victims from Sunday. The two most critical patients are now in the U.S.A.. Both had pelvic fractures and internal injuries. There were many others treated for concussions, one fractured femur, one fractured wrist. As far as I know all are doing well at this point. One noteable mention is that on the day the accident happened a Canadian medical team specializing in orthopedics was on the mainland in Port-au-Prince, having only arrived the day before. They saw and treated all of these patients. Thank you so much for all the prayers on their behalf.
