Hurricane Update #4 – 10:46 PM Saturday

I’m in the Savannette (NW of Les Cayes), which is the first place I ever served in Haiti.

I came here knowing it got hit hard and that the school, clinic, and church lost their roofs.

I still wasn’t prepared for the fact that the majority of people lost their entire houses.
I could spend a month just doing chainsaw work, but instead, we will start building shelters with whatever we can claim out of the fallen trees.
Right now, we need tarps more than anything.
Actually, I take that back. We need wisdom that only god can provide. There is no good way to make a priority list. This is not the worst situation in Haiti right now, but, if its left alone, it could certainly start catching up.
We also need a miracle. Here I am with 8 sacks of rice, 4 tarps, and some scattered lumber. If Jesus fed 5000 with a few loaves and a couple fish, maybe this can work out, but only by His hand.

God I look to you, I wont be overwhelmed
Give me vision, to see things like you do
God I look to you, you’re where my help comes from
Give me wisdom, you know just what to do.
