Occupying 200 Children During the Pandemic

Pastor Predestin, director of My Father's House Orphanage in Haiti, shared with us how they are doing during the pandemic:

It is a very, very difficult time in Haiti right now. Please pray for us! The virus is now infecting many, many people from all walks of life. The rich to the very poor have been infected as well as public officials and prominent people in Haitian society. Several of the pastors that we have been training have gotten COVID-19 as well. Most have a very high fever and difficulty breathing. They have no availability to be tested, so most of these “cases” are assumed. Most people who get the virus who have pre-existing health problems are dying from the virus. The hospitals are full and are turning people away. The government does not want people to panic so they are not stating a death count, and also they probably don’t really know themselves due to the fact people are dying in their homes.  So far only one boy in the orphanage has gotten a fever. He was isolated and eventually recovered. In addition to the virus, food prices continue to rise. Since the beginning of the pandemic, rice and beans have tripled in cost.

It has been a challenge for Pastor Predestin and the orphanage workers to keep the 200 children and teens occupied during the pandemic. They have been teaching them some extracurricular lessons to fill their days. Baking, cake decorating, pizza making, and computer lessons are what have taken place so far.

With churches closed due to COVID-19, it took innovative measures to get the Gospel out. Pastor Predestin is very excited about the broadcasting he and fellow pastors are doing through his radio station. 

They can’t go to church, so we bring church to them!!  What a blessing God has allowed us to use this for this time.
