19Nov11

Been a crazy day. Nothing has gone as planned.
Woke up this morning to news that HAF-Jacmel was robbed at gunpoint last night.
Spent the rest of the day working to build a new place to house the kids and staff that are now being relocated.
It was great to see so many people working together to get the new facility up, but very saddening to realize why it had to happen.

Most of my friends from Jacmel are now in the U.S. trying to decide what to do next. It is just become too unsafe to stay around there.
To this point, the robbers have not returned to places they already hit, but it’s still a scary thought for all those involved.

Please pray for all of the missionaries serving in Jacmel, and throughout Haiti.
We thank God for being our protector. To this point, while two people have been shot, no one has been seriously injured. Both gunshot wounds were minor and healed quickly.
Stuff can be replaced.

Now I’m just trying to come up with ideas for better security. Walls and razor wire just aren’t cutting it, and armed guards don’t seem to be a good answer for many reasons.

Btw, I’m safe, no problems, just not going to Archaie right now to fix that welder. Too much to help with for HAF.

God Bless.
