BIBLE STUDY MOMS MEET AFTER A 3 MONTH ABSENCE BECAUSE OF POLITICAL UNREST
By Marianne Boehme
On December 20, 2019 the Cabrini Bible study groups met together in front of the Cabrini Community Center for a prayer meeting. They celebrated and gave thanks that they were together again. All five members of the leadership teams that serve the Bible Studies Groups, Literacy program, Water Project, Chorus and Food Program shared with the mothers how important it is to continue to pray for each other and the Cabrini Community Ministries.
I would like to share with you the program they planned for this prayer meeting.
My only regret is that I can’t share the video with you, so you could hear their worship. The mothers greeted each other with hugs and gave a “bravo“ to the leaders for planning the meeting. They were so happy to be together again.
This was the LEADER’S plan for December 20, 2019 prayer meeting. (As written in their second Language- Bravo to them.)

I am so proud of them and all of you should be too. This is one sign of the fruit of our labors these many years. I hope the pictures will show that we are making a difference. We are restoring the families, we are giving them a hand up by building up the community and showing we care. The families saw their faithfulness in action. The desperation is still so great because of the complete shutdown of Haiti for three months. One of our contacts told me on the phone during those weeks, “The country can’t take it much longer.“ Prayers were answered the week after Thanksgiving. The gangs left the streets, road blocks were gone and people slowly came out of their shelters. Gasoline became available and the electric power was restored for a few hours each evening.
Cabrini’s five-member team is heading for Haiti on Feb. 6th. Please pray for our safety and that everything remains peaceful so that the cement floor can be poured and that the exterior of the building can be completed. Watch the bulletin, website and Facebook for news in February. We will have a daily mission work schedule published for the February News and updates.
Thank you to all who give over and over to this ministry. With God’s grace we will finish what we started. We are encouraged by your giving. Cabrini is a light in the darkness.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR HAITI. PRAYER CARDS ARE AVAILABLE IN THE NARTHEX INFORMATION CENTER PLEASE TAKE ONE AND SHARE WITH YOUR FAMILIES.
