Earthquake Update: Tuesday, August 17th - 2021
Tuesday, August 17, 2021

Dear Praying Friends:

Once again, thanks for keeping Haiti and the relief effort in your daily prayers.

-It was a very wet night for our brothers and sisters as Tropical Storm Grace passed over Haiti. However, no dangerous flooding reported in Les Cayes. Praise God for answered prayers.

Road between Jeremie and Les Cayes-Road between Jeremie and Les Cayes was cleared late this evening. This means supply trucks can now get to those cities at the end of the southwest peninsula. Tomorrow, Lord willing, we should have an update on Jeremie. But tonight, several homeless families have found refuge in St. Helene Church, a Spanish River church plant in Jeremie. Count on your prayers for the next steps to help the thousands made homeless by this quake.

Ministry Partners: Give Hope Global and ESMI Board Member, Roger Braswell-Thankful for ministry partner, Give Hope Global, and ESMI board member, Roger Braswell, who sent a team of 5 military medical professionals yesterday from Team Rubicon. They worked tirelessly throughout the day assessing the medical needs in Les Cayes and the surrounding cities. Then today, they gave their services at the General Hospital in Les Cayes from early morning to dusk.

--Medical team of Haitian doctors that were in another part of Haiti are now in Les Cayes. Praise God! Bone surgeon from the US to join the team soon. Pray for his safe arrival and the logistics. All are being housed at Cambry with Louis.

ESMI made arrangements with a shipping company that will take weekly relief supplies from the Port of Miami to the port in Miragoane which is just a couple hours drive from Les Cayes. Once the ship leaves on a Friday, if all is well, it will be in Haiti by Monday, all pallets cleared on Tuesday and ready for distribution.
