A ministry dodges a hurricane’s blow and continues its work.

By September 21, 2004

Haiti (MNN)–2004’s hurricane season has been rough. For one ministry, it has been a series of close calls.

For Haiti With Love is headquartered in Palm Harbor, in western Florida. The team waited for Hurricanes Charley and Frances’ onslaught, but were spared damage.

Then, before a sigh of relief could go up, word came that Hurricane Ivan was barrreling down on Haiti, the site of For Haiti’s ministry.

The monster storm hit Gonaives, in the northwest, sparing the clinic in Cap Haitien. For Haiti’s Eva DeHart calls it “a blessing that we were spared.”

That means work at the clinic and feeding stations can go uninterrupted. At this point, DeHart says they are treating severe electrical burn patients–mainly people who were trying to restore power on their own.

DeHart says they’re standing by to aid where they can. For Haiti with Love shows God’s love by feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, helping the sick, and sheltering the homeless.

Giving freely of God’s love and gifts to help make life better for the poorest of the poor in Northern Haiti. Medical teams are welcome to serve in the FHL 24 hour emergency medical clinic, construction volunteers for building homes or village marketplaces.
