|Broken community well in Petite Riviére de Nippes|
The donated World Hope supplies arrived last week and were released from customs in three days following a lot of hard work.
Four hard hit areas will be targeted for relief efforts: LaGonave, Torbeck [just West of Les Cayes] and the mountain areas south of Petite Goave and north of Bainet.
Each area will identify 150 families with the greatest needs to receive a bag of food [beans, corn meal, oil, spaghetti, dry fish and onions], water filter, personal hygiene kits. The tarps will go to churches and schools. We will also bring more boxes of Konsey books for distribution in the harder hit areas.

Saturday we may visit Love a Child and see their gardening and reforestation program, bringing some eggfruit trees and Konsey books. We plan to return to Ortlip Center for the rest of the weekend. Next week is a big training summit for 160 pastors, so we will attend the start of that on Monday to talk about the Konsey books, and meet/encourage the pastors before heading home on Tuesday.
We also heard from our adoption agency that they were hoping that F’s family would appear in court this week to sign the needed papers. He turns 6 years old this week.
