Haiti (MNN) — Compassion International remains hard at work
in Haiti, as repair and reconstruction efforts are finally rolling–albeit

Finishing repairs on their larger office building at the end
of July, Compassion is now utilizing both of their office buildings.
Additionally, they sent 11 shipping containers for their nine International
Church Partners to use as offices in Leogane and Port-au-Prince.

After great efforts to send medical supplies, 100 percent of
the affected Compassion-assisted centers and hospitals now have the needed

Compassion has continued their collection and distribution
of hygiene and food kits, supplying 750 Child Survival Program caregivers and
70 Leadership Development Students with kits over the past month.

Working toward self-sustaining communities, Compassion
trained 130 more tutors on water treatment systems who will pass their new
knowledge on to Compassion-assisted children and families.

Additionally, Compassion supplied 13 of their International Church
Partners with much-needed supplies such as benches, boards, school desks,
office desks, chairs and filing cabinets.

Concerned about survivors' mental health, Compassion hired
two psychologists who will in turn train 30 tutors to reach out to over 750
kids and families.

In each and every effort, Compassion continues to share the
love of Christ with Haitians in such desperate need of it.

Pray that even more hearts will be open to the Gospel in Haiti.
Pray for Haitians who have already made decisions for Christ and for their
faith to continually grow and strengthen with each passing day.
