The word on the street is that Aristide is supposed to be returning to Haiti today. Because Haiti isn’t already crazy enough. He claims that he only wants to come back so he can build a medical school, and is afraid that if he doesn’t come before the elections he may have his visa revoked. Apparently “Baby Doc” is still in Haiti as well. I wonder if they’ll be having an “ousted leaders” conference.
Please be praying for Haiti and the possible problems that could occur this weekend. No one has any idea what to anticipate with Aristides return and through the elections on Sunday. Could be crazy, could be calm. We’ve already filled our visitors in and warned them that they may need to delay their trip home if things get dicey. We’re also meeting another group at the airport early next week, so please pray that this weekend is one of safety and not chaos.
