We thank God for His protection towards us (Destenor and Caleb) and the fact He allows us to be able to go to the fields despite the political crisis existing in Haiti. We were thinking the situation related to the end of President Jovenel’s term might be worse this year and could lead to everything in the country shutting down. We were afraid of what could happen and wondered what the future would look like. However, by the grace of God, we can continue normally with our activities in the North. We want to thank Lord for this!
