Report from the MEBSH Church at Aux Coteaux

September 13, 2008,

Dear Grace Lutheran Church,

I am Pastor Romelus Jean Tatho, the Pastor of Coteaux Baptist church. I am taking this opportunity to share with you about the damages caused by the different hurricanes that affected Haiti. We have had a lot of damage in Aux Coteaux. The town was flooded and we had about 16 houses that were damaged with two of them being destroyed. Many of the church members lost their gardens and lot of animals. They also lost many of their personal possessions.

Many people are concerned because they don’t know how they will provide for their families and school will star soon to add to their financial burden.

The same thing happened at many of the district churches too. I was talked to several of the pastors by phone and they said that they have suffered a lot of damage as a result of the hurricanes also.

I know there are problems almost everywhere in world, but the situation in Haiti is very difficult. Please lift Aux Coteaux in prayer, not only our church but the whole town. Please pray that God will provide our needs and protect us from any more storms.

May God bless you and protect you.

Pastor Jean Tatho Romelus
