Hopes high for Haiti’s elections.

By February 9, 2006

Haiti (MNN)–Results of this week’s national elections in Haiti could be known as early as Friday.

Although polling has been delayed four times for security and administrative reasons, all the major players now seem committed to the process.

The elections took place as the result of a public revolt in 2004 that sent the sitting President into exile. 3.1 million identity cards were issued voters, who will choose from a field of 33 candidates.

The future of OMS International’s work there hinges not only on the immediate security, but also on whether the election results are deemed credible.

Haiti’s instability may overshadow efforts for peaceful outcome. Sporadic violence broke out at a few of the polling stations, mainly because the polling stations were overwhelmed by eager voters.

Pray that the work of ministries like OMS International would be effective in revealing Jesus Christ to people trapped in voodoo, idolatry, and atheism.
