The devastation visited upon Haiti last fall by Hurricane Matthew has faded from the minds of many, but the gratitude of the many survivors helped by Heaven’s Family has not!
Below are just a few of the many testimonies we receive about lives being impacted and transformed by the Disaster Relief Ministry of Heaven’s Family.
“Apocalyptic,” was how one local, a former prime minister of Haiti, described the devastation wrought by Hurricane Matthew last October. Thousands of cobbled-together homes of the poor went up against 145 mph winds and lost—roofs were blown off cement-block homes; most other homes simply disappeared.
Heaven's Family has been busy this summer helping victims of natural disasters in little corners of the world where no news reporters have ventured—and no government or other aid has reached. Several months ago record monsoon flooding caused widespread destruction in Chin State, Myanmar. Homes were lost, including the school where the three children of Za Tial attended.
BOOM! Deepa's home shook violently, then went quiet. She cautiously peered into the next room of her small, cement-block home to see the cause: A huge boulder had tumbled down the rain-soaked slope behind her house and was now sitting inside her home—right where her 4-year-old daughter had been just moments earlier. It wasn't the last rock to batter their home that day.
In January, each of Heaven's Family's 21 Focused Ministry Directors gave a short, 10-minute presentation about their accomplishments in 2015 and their upcoming goals for 2016. We're excited about what the Lord has done, and what He has in store for the remainder of this year!
