Genesis 2:15 Ministries Welcome to Our Website
Wow. What a couple of days! Yesterday everything in Haiti pretty much came to a standstill. There is upset over a price hike in fuel. Gas has been subsidized 38% and diesel 51%. The government reversed the subsidy and was met with a lot of anger. There have been roadblocks throughout the country. We had a team that was supposed to come in yesterday. I left at 5:00 am to go get them. The first 1.5 hrs was on a dirt road. In the next 5 miles I was stopped at three roadblocks and saw the remnants of 8-10 more. At the third road block, I heard the team's flight was cancelled. So I turned back. Demonstrators were throwing bottles and coconuts at any vehicles who approached too close to the roadblocks. On my return trip, I got caught between roadblocks and couldn't go either way. A trip that normally takes 4 hrs took 9. The team's flight has been cancelled again today. Please pray for them as they return home. We appreciate so their willingness to come even in rough circumstances. They spent months preparing for this trip and we know it is not for naught. Pray that God will comfort them through this time and we hope they can come at a later date. Please pray for the country. I shared what happened to me to give you a small taste of what is happening in rural areas. It was minor indeed to what people are experiencing in the cities. Pray for calm and for just solutions.
