Hurricane Matthew and subsequent flooding nearly destroyed our community – but it also brought all of us together. I wouldn’t have thought about pouring into these kids had I not watched their nightmare unfold before me. Beauty from ashes….

I realize that many of you are not on Facebook and several have been emailing and asking for information! Below are the latest updates since the storm started…..
To find out what our plan is and how you can help – please check out our ministry blog tomorrow – molehaiti.org . I have been trying to post it ALL day but still waiting for some pictures to upload.

I’m sorry if we’re unable to meet up with all our friends/supporters this time out but please know we love you! Also please pray for our sanity as we travel 12-17 hours at a time in a van full of crazy Castillos.
