TWINNING – COMMUNICATIONS – LIFE IN HAITI
“TODAY, MORE THAN EVER, WE NEED TO PRAY FOR THE LIGHT TO KNOW THE WILL OF GOD…FOR THE LOVE TO ACCEPT THE WILL OF GOD…FOR THE WAY TO DO THE WILL OF GOD ”
. . . essential teaching of Mother Teresa
TWINNING- A witness of faith
BENEFITS OF PARTNERING AND TWINNING FOR OUR PARISH will be at the beginning of each month update.
- Parishioners can identify with their contributions to MISSION. Our Parishioners will know the missionaries, the mission grounds, the country and its political problems. They know the people; they see pictures of their donated items, the children whose lives are changing and how their money is being spent. DVD and photos will help to put “Flesh” on the faces of a people beyond our borders. We have given them a safe way to give to God’s poor and help them to fulfill the call of the gospel.
ASK YOURSELVES IF WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED THIS IN OUR
Twinning relationship with Haiti.
POSTPONING MARCH 2023 MISSION TRIP
After months of preparation and planning God closed the door to our traveling to Haiti at this time. Since we began Cabrini’s outreach to Haiti in 1988 and started traveling in 1994, we have had to alter our mission trips five times. The Holy Spirit continues to show us ways in which we can continue to do the ministries. Look what the Lord Provided. With all of the new technology we are able to continue our work in Haiti. Personal time is always important but we can continue building on the seeds we planted during those in person visits.
We have applied and been accepted to start receiving the services of the satellites that are now in skies above the Caribbean. Soon the center will have its own web connections for IPADS, NOTE BOOKS, Cellphone, etc.
If anyone has an Apple or Android Cellphone that they are upgrading and your phone works and, there is still life in the battery please call Marianne. (262- 338-8845 Leave a message). The more memory the phone has the better. They need to be unlocked, not just cleared by the service company you have.
WATER FILTER MAINTENANCE
On March 17, 18, 19, 2023, Director of the water project, Gephte, accompanied by Director of Ministries, Carmelo, visited the homes of 40 of our families to service their water filter systems and provide them with cleaning supplies for several months to keep their buckets clean. The water testing was to take place but it was postponed until the testing kits arrive in Haiti via DHL transport. The Mission team had planned to bring them but could not travel to Jacmel. The testing will be done in July.
Food Distribution will take place in April. We are thankful for a donor that gave us a grant for the complete distribution. God sees the heart of His people and gives blessings abound.
Maintenance continues on the large gate this next month. It needed repairs and scraping of rust and repainting. Jacmal is close to the salt water from the Caribbean Sea so that painting is very important.
All the ministries are continuing through these turbulent times. We continue to help our families with medical care as well. Our Partnership with CCH continue to work alongside of the families of the Cabrini Community Center.
Please note we are planning for the Cabrini Haiti Outreach Spaghetti dinner on September 23, 2023. We hope you will reserve the date on your calendar and if you wish to volunteer please email or call Marianne and she will pass it forward.
LIFE IN HAITI . . .
PRAY, PRAY, PRAY!
NO ONE HAS EXPERIENCED WAR IN THE HOME LAND OF UNTIED STATES. SO IT IS DIFFICULT FOR US TO REALIZE THE IMPACT IT HAS ON DAILY SURVIVAL. I PRAY THAT WE NEVER WILL. SO PLEASE CONTINUE TO REMEMBER OUR HAITIAN FAMILIES ARE LIVING IN AN UNDECLARED WAR ZONE AT THIS TIME IN A SMALL ISLAND NATION.
