Haiti Orphanage Update Oct. 16

Here's the latest email from Pastor Sam Wiseman about Pastor Daniel Paul's orphanage in Ouanaminthe, Haiti.

Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ--our Lord and Savior. Amen.
We are so thankful for dear souls who share in this ministry of caring for people in a terribly deprived country. Please remember that as you are led by the Holy Spirit to be involved with "good works" that in those works God is at work in you as one of His dear servants (children, friends). I am honored to have you read about, pray for, and serve with the Nord Est Haiti Lutheran Mission.
Rev. Daniel Paul had a cold for several days, yet is now feeling much better.
They have received some good rains, therefore there has been a lot of work going on in their gardens. Rev. Paul and Pepe (the twenty something year old who does a huge amount of physical labor at the complex) work hard to have the available land produce food. The orphans are often called on to help.
Please pray for Rev. Paul as he is "shopping" for a generator and refrigerator. He was sent funds this past week through Fonkoze--a banking system that allows him to receive funds is USA currency. He can barter more effectively with the US dollar.
Please consider or encourage the sponsorship of a student ($240.00 per year) or an orphan ($600.00 a year) as you prepare for the Christmas season. We have received several sponsorships as gifts for someone else.
The Lord be with you as you keep these dear souls in your thoughts and prayers,
Rev. Sam Wiseman
