Thank you so very much for your prayers for the team, as they traveled home. They ended up leaving for the airport in Haiti at 3:00 A.M. Saturday morning. They made it to the airport by daybreak. They did pass through about a dozen blockades of rocks and tires, but a large truck ahead of them was breaking through each of the blockades, so they were able to maneuver through them. Thank you so much for praying.
As I shared in the previous email, the Haitian government has said that the opposing political group backed by the former ruler Aristide, is planning major riots in an attempt to cause a coup this coming week in Haiti. The manifestations are supposed to start in Cap Haitian Monday, tomorrow.
Here is a little bit of the history; The Haitian Revolution officially came to an end in 1803 when rebels defeated French troops on November 18 at the Battle of Vertieres. On January 1, 1804, Governor-for-Life Jean-Jacques Dessalines declared the island free and renamed it 'Haiti.'
Because of this, Aristide's followers have chosen this date as the day to initiate a coup. They have already unsuccessfully tried to initiate a coup with issues revolving around gas prices, bribing and coercing senators and the prime minister to join their side. The coup is supposed to take place between the 18th and 21st of November. Please be praying for the country of Haiti and its people. They have already walked through so much hardship. This manifestation has the potential to set Haiti back as a country. Please pray for safety and stability. Pray against property loss and loss of life. Pray for God's peace.
Thank you so much, blessings,
