Looking Back on 2016
Dr. Phil Lucas, HMI President
As the year 2016 draws to an end, we at Haiti Missions Incorporated (HMI) would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our supporters, service providers, donors and prayer warriors for every act of kindness rendered to the people in Haiti. It has been a trying year but Haiti Missions Incorporated was able to accomplish much because you supported this effort to make a difference in the lives of others. Because of your continued giving, many orphan children are receiving educational support, rural churches are being constructed, medical clinics are winning the war on cholera and dysentery and fresh water is being provided. Thank you for your support to HMI. Haiti Missions Incorporated is recognized by the IRS as a 501c(3) charitable organization. Please consider making a year end donation by December 31, 2016. All donations are tax deductible. Thank you for your continued support.
RECENT TRIP TO HAITI
SURVEYING THE HURRICANE DAMAGE
Our recent trip to southern Haiti two weeks ago found much residual damage from Hurricane Matthew. Almost two months ago, Hurricane Matthew bombarded Haiti with extreme category 4 winds and rain which destroyed many of the poorly constructed homes and wreaked havoc on the fall harvest which was still in the fields. Hurricane Matthew left in the aftermath much starvation, disease, anguish and despair.
Haiti Missions Incorporated responded within days after the hurricane by providing food and water to the hardest hit areas in southern Haiti. Bi-weekly food caravans into hard to reach mountainous communities with massive destruction became our goal. Because the roads were impenetrable by 4 wheel vehicles, HMI solicited a six member motorcycle brigade led by Alex Syndal to transport food into hard to reach areas. Additionally, HMI was able to purchase and donate metal sheets for residential roofing to survivors without roofs on their shattered dwellings.
Haiti Missions Incorporated is making a difference because of you. The need is great. You may make a donation to the HMI Hurricane Relief Fund TODAY at www.missions2haiti.org or mail your donation to Haiti Missions Incorporated, Post Office Box 9108, Hampton, VA 23670.

HAITIAN CHURCHES NEED HELP
A PLEA TO REBUILD
Eglise of Prophecie, Port Salut, Haiti
The church serves as the primary means for education and evangelistic outreach in many Haitian communities. However, because of Hurricane Matthew many churches in southern Haiti have been destroyed or heavily damaged. Today many damaged structures without roofs, equipment or classroom supplies replace the former church but the commitment to teach children, provide evangelistic outreach, and serve the community remain the priority. Help HMI repair some of the churches that have been heavily damaged. Donate to the Hurricane Relief Fund (Emergency Support) at Haiti Missions Incorporated. (www.missions2haiti.org)
