Hoping all is well with you. We hope you are enjoying the early signs of spring.

We wanted to update everyone in regards to the current un-rest in Haiti. This past week the Prime Minister was dismissed. This was a good thing, as he was one of the major instigators of the riots taking place in Haiti. They now have an interim prime minister. Things have settled down for the most part. But there are rumors of more protests this coming week, and the US Embassy still has a level 4 travel alert for incoming visitors.  For that reason we have canceled our April team’s mission trip.

The common people of Haiti are not the ones wanting the political unrest to continue. Several times this past month, when there were dates of planned manifestations, the people ignored them and went about their business as usual, the best they could. The political unrest hurts the common people and does not help the country’s economy. There is still a fuel shortage and many other problems that the people of Haiti face on a daily basis, but the people are persevering against these odds. Please continue to pray for Haiti’s stability and security for the sake of the common people.

Please also pray for Mike, as he is deciding whether or not to go to Haiti on April 1st.  Because of the unrest it has been a longer time between visits than usual for Mike and they are really wanting him to come.

On another note there continue to be many salvations in our churches, especially in Pass Rein, Amone-Bout-Nat and Marose.
