Strong Godly Leadership in North West Haiti
has been a while since our last update. These last 6-8 months or so in
Haiti have been challenging. The on-going political situation is
continuing to be a de-stabilizing factor for all Haitians and the north
west region has been no different. Until recently, communication with
the Duclos's and the leadership team has been difficult and during some
weeks nearly impossible. Along with this there have been skyrocketing
prices on all items from food, gas and other basic necessities. It has
left so many on the edge of the abyss, choosing which child to feed and
on a constant search looking for work and help. In the North West the
rains this year have been sporadic at best, only a fraction of the usual
rainfall. This has devastated the crops on which so much depends, for
food and market income. As we head into summer it looks to be a dry and
barren time for the farmers and their families here in the Jean Rabel
One of the few lights of hope in this region is the work of True Shepherd and its local leadership team. Antony and Marietta Duclos and the True Shepherd team have been working so hard to bring relief and hope to many. Weekly mobile clinics are reaching remote communities far from the main towns bringing much needed medications and medical help. The sheep program is blessing communities with animals to provide sustainable income. The church shops have provided income for churches to provide for teachers and pastors. Each of these programs is reinforcing that the Lord hasn’t forgotten them, and that He is close to the broken and afflicted.
“The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.”

Shiro Kano: Faithfulness at Any Price by Merritt Nielson
Originally told in 1948 by Alice Spangenberg, the story of Shiro Kano is a compelling call to faithfulness at any price. It is a timely reminder that in every generation, God needs men and women who will follow His call and who will faithfully render their service for the sake of the many who do not yet know Christ.
Not all stories turn out as we would expect or hope. But God is the Author and Finisher of faith, and the end of this story is not yet fully known. This book should draw a simple prayer: “Lord, give me such a faith in and for my generation.”
