On Feb. 1st, 2010 Mr. John Merschat and I left for the devastated nation of Haiti.  We had to fly into the capital of the Dominican Republic and then travel a couple of hundred miles to get to our destination.  Our purpose for the trip was to meet the founder and director of the "Haitian Mission Seervices", Pastor Preval Merital to evaluate some of the immediate needs that we might be able to take care of while we were there as well as upon our return to the states.  It didn't take long to find out that the most important needs were food and shelter.  Most of the Haitians have no money or jobs to buy food because of the earthquake and no shelter because they have abandoned their homes  due to government order and they are afraid of being inside after the destruction that they witnessed.  We were given a tour throughout Port Au Prince and the outlying areas.  If the people are not living on the streets they are living in some kind of church compound where there is a bit of safety because of the multitudes there.  We visited one where 1500 people were living and trying to survive.  There were a few tents put up and a make shift shanty that housed some of the women while the rest lived out in the open.  The pastor of this community told us that it cost his church about $1000 to feed these people and the surrounding community daily.  Their food consisted of rice, beans and corn.  We were also told that the pastor's church was running out of funds to continue this enourmous task.  I praise God, we were able to help them by providing funds for additonal food that would last for about five days before we left.  We also visited two orphanages where 100 children ages five to twenty are living outdoors.  The churches sponsoring them have the same problems, very little money, therfore very little food for the children.  Once again we were able to assist these two orphanges and hope to continue to support them until they get back on their feet once again.  I am looking and praying for those of you that would like to help us feed these orphans.  I would love to visit your church, Bible study or organization in order to show you a slideshow of what we experienced.  This will give you and understanding of what we are proposing to do.  If you wish to contribute please pull up our pay-pal account.  Thank you so much for all that you have done and are doing to help these people in their desperate times.
