Haiti (MNN) — Since many people have forgotten about Haiti following the 2010 earthquake, ministries working there continue meeting the physical and spiritual needs. However, red tape is causing additional problems.
For Haiti with Love has been working in Haiti for decades. They often have difficulty getting shipping containers out of customs.
Today, however, they're celebrating answered prayers.
Eva DeHart, President of For Haiti with Love, says, "After six months, on August 24, For Haiti with Love finally has a freed container of food packs donated by 'Feed My Starving Children.'"
DeHart adds, "There are still two: one tied up in customs since February, and one at sea; but we thank God that we now have food and can resume the food program for the elderly, the recovering burn patients, the disabled, and grandmas left to raise grandchildren."
For Haiti with Love demonstrates God's love to those in need by hosting a feeding program, a burn clinic, home-rebuilding program, and more.
However, the ministry isn't out of the woods because funding has greatly diminished since the quake. "We need your continued prayers and donations because there will be dock charges for the time the other containers have been delayed."
Pray that God will provide funding for those changes and for additional ministry for the Haitian people.
