We want to inform everyone that our UP Missionaries appointed to the nation of Haiti, Brother Ron & Sister Teri Brian are on deputation here in the United States and fortunately were not in Haiti at the time of the 7.0 earthquake that rocked the country yesterday. Many have asked about them and we want everyone to know that they are okay. All attempts to contact our National Leader in Haiti, Pastor La Port, have been unsuccessful so we are unaware of any physical or material losses sustained by our ministers, saints or church buildings. We are asking you to please pray for our ministers and saints in Haiti.
They need God’s protection and comfort at this time. A Strategic Management Assessment Response Team (SMART TEAM) made up of Rev. Ron Brian, Rev. Danny Wilkerson and Rev. Mark Hattabaugh will be leaving tomorrow for the Dominican Republic. They will meet there with Missionary Steve Shirley and attempt to enter Haiti from the Dominican Republic. Once they are on the ground in Haiti they will assess the situation. Many have called requesting how they can help. First and foremost you can help by interceding for our ministers and saints in Haiti and secondly you can help by making a donation to Compassion Services International at the following web-site: (clicking on this will take you directly to the site) Compassion Services . If you prefer you can also send and offering to Compassion Services International, 8855 Dunn Rd, Hazelwo, MO. 63042 designated for Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund. Let’s continue to pray for the church in Haiti and for the SMART team that will be going in to assess the situation on the ground. ~
