.@HillaryClinton, PLEASE HELP ME get to my friends in #Haiti

7 Oct

Secretary Clinton~

 

I need your help.  You regularly say that we are “Stronger Together.”  I couldn’t agree more.  I’ve found such purpose in serving a small village in Haiti, named Marfranc.  The joy of my friends there is unlike any joy I’ve seen in my American friends and family.

I first went to Haiti in 2009, right before the earthquake.  That was all it took for me to fall in love.  In 3 weeks, I hope to make my 8th trip with New Life for Haiti to bring medical care to some of the poorest people in the world.  Here’s the problem…we have no ability to connect with anyone in the southern peninsula (near Jeremie).  It’s been several days, and no communication, whatsoever.  I even exchanged tweets with Haiti’s First Lady.  She was kind and gracious, but said that even she had no information about the fate of the people of Marfranc.  CBS Chicago interviewed me last night about it, but I still have no more information.

Would you be so kind as to help me find out what happened in Marfranc?  Are our friends alive?  Are they injured and desperate?  Do they have clean water?  Were their crops washed away?  Is an outbreak of cholera just around the bend?  All of these issues are keeping me up and night, and that’s why I’m reaching out to you.

Would you help us?  We need to do a survey trip next week, but we don’t have the logistical expertise that you have access to.

I’m stronger with my Haitian brothers and sisters.  Please help us get to them.

 

With hope & prayers, together,

 

Pastor Neil Schori
