Everybody has been working hard at making repairs to the house and property grounds of Coram Deo. The earthquake caused a lot of damage but in our yard the damage has now been reversed. This was all possible due to the efforts of the teams that came to help take down and rebuild the dormitory, the Canadian military who helped to rebuild a couple of the surrounding walls on the property, and the efforts of haitian workers and our "Coram Deo" community here in Haiti. These people all provided the "hand work" but this would not have been possible if we did not have financial support from people both in the United States and Canada. These financial gifts allowed us to repair and rebuild. Some people have sent comments and emails saying that they were praying for us here in Haiti. That has been a big support as well. We also give the Lord thanks for protecting and preserving us and showing us His grace. We know that those who were lost during the earthquake, Jackenmy and Samuel are now with the Lord.
For the last 3 years it has been difficult for Coram Deo as an organization. 3 years ago some influential people made comments that were meant to be hurtful. They were:
1. You are not Coram Deo
2. This is not your home
3. This is not your family
These 3 comments that people said was like an "earthquake to the soul".
I took a stand and paid a price, both myself and the haitian people that are part of the Coram Deo family. We have persevered and carried on. This week everyone here has been excited and saying that we now have a "new Coram Deo". Pray that this new Coram Deo will be an even more improved Coram Deo as we serve the Lord with all our hearts, strength, soul and mind. Thanks again for everyone's support.
