Please read the following update from Caleb. We ask for your prayers during this time. 
 We are experiencing one of the worst moments in Haiti right now as widespread protests have now turned violent.  In the capital, politicians homes and some businesses are being attacked and looted.   Everything is on hold and we do not know for how long.  “No fuel, no food, no fun”  is how someone described the situation.  The past Saturday night someone paid $175.00 for 5 gallons of gasoline from a vendor on the street and the vendor told him it was a favor.  Roadblocks are everywhere and as of this Wednesday morning, September 14th, no one knows what the next day will look like. Schools have yet to open and businesses are closed.   As you walk through the streets of Cap Haitien, everyone looks suspiciously at each other because no one knows who to trust.   Frustration, uncertainty, despair, poverty, anger, depression are the sentiments being expressed.     To make things worse, the government has just announced a 65% increase on fuel prices.  We are moving towards a dark part of the history that will be written for Haiti as banks, gas stations and individual’s homes are being destroyed.  The banks in the metropolitan area have announced their closures and the different ones in the provinces are following suit as everything in this country is centralized.  Stores are closed, streets are empty, restaurants are closed and no one knows for how long?  We are still holding church services and I’m glad to report they are packed! My prayers:As I woke up this morning I prayed for protection for God’s children,*I prayed for protection of the innocent ones that are being manipulated by the schemes and tactics of the evildoers. *I pray for God’s justice to be executed towards those who have brought the country to the dump into which it has fallen.*I pray for God’s provision for those in greater needs who can’t even afford the basic necessities of life. *I pray for God to strike the unconscionable politicians who continue year after year to keep the country in bondage.  The international community of nations continues to maintain the position that it is a Haitian thing that needs to be addressed and solved by Haitians and yet they continue to empower the same immoral politicians in Haiti.  The people have become tired of this continuous cycle.  While my plans change daily, our team will continue to reach out providing help as we can.  But please pray for the people of Haiti, that God will spare lives and draw them to Himself.  It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in Man. Psalms 118:8
