Chris & Cassie | Haiti
Psalm 2:8 "Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance, and the very ends of the earth as Your possession."
Thank you for your willingness to pray for all that God is doing among the nations through First Baptist Rogers. As many of you know, we had to cancel our mission trip to Haiti over spring break due to the violent protests that have been happening in their capital city. The situation saddens us, but we know that God's plan will not be thwarted. We are so grateful for the constant work of Chris and Cassie Myers in Haiti and would ask that you join in praying for them.
Below are some excerpts from their latest newsletter and some prayer points.
"Well, we are writing our first official newsletter from the kitchen table of our very own home!! A little after three months of work, our "ti kay” (little house) has mostly been completed. Chris has been assembling furniture while Cassie has been putting her new kitchen in order and we are so thrilled to be in our own living space now! This afternoon we finally got to hook up our stove. With all that had been going on in Haiti the past several days we hadn't been able to send for supplies and refill our propane tanks but thankfully as things have begun to calm down throughout the country, Pastor Kenan was able to get to Port de Paix yesterday to get propane and some other needed things. We are extremely thankful for all of you who reached out to us and have kept us in your prayers over recent days.
Also because of the generosity of others, we were able to buy fabric and pay a woman in our church to tailor school uniforms for some of our preschool kids who have been attending school all year without one. Because school uniforms are a really big deal in Haiti, some of the kids had stopped coming to school out of shame and embarrassment because they cannot afford one. We again express our sincere gratitude to those who gave and made it possible for us to help these kids buy uniforms.”
Pray for God to calm the hearts of the Haitian people and bring to justice those who organize, provoke, and fund violent protests.
Pray for the development of partnerships that will allow for the consistent financial support and advancement of our mission.
Pray that we would find the funds to complete and operate our school kitchen that will be used to feed hungry students.
Pray as we seek an effective method for Cassie to learn the Haitian Creole language.
