Haiti (MNN) — Another organization is dealing with a major loss in Haiti.
News is beginning to trickle in to Grand Bassin, Limbe, Camp Coq, and Cap Haitien about family members from these places who were living, working, or visiting in Port-au-Prince on Tuesday when the earthquake struck.
According to Rodne Romeus, Director of AMG ministries in Grand Bassin, "We learned about Joseph Algais, a member of my church and a resident of Grand Bassin, who was in Port-au-Prince Tuesday for a meeting. The building in which his meeting was held, collapsed. Today it has been confirmed that he died in the earthquake. "
Romeus says, "Our Brother Algais was superintendent of schools for the entire Northeast department of Haiti. This man's death is a tragic blow and will have a significant impact on the AMG educational ministry."
Romeus also says, "The family living just two houses away from the 'guest house' in Grand Bassin had a son in Port-au-Prince. The family has learned that he died in the earthquake. A young man who led the choir in [my] church several years ago was in Port-au-Prince. His death in the earthquake also has been confirmed."
Please be in prayer for all churches who have lost members of their congregations and ask God to give them wisdom as they continue their work.
