  1. Hi Leslie and Chris,

    I was wondering if there are any long term volunteer opportunities available with your program? Is there still an opportunity for married couples? I am very interested in your program…you guys are doing amazing work!

    • Hi Liza,

      We are always looking for volunteers. If you visit the mission website – – and see the Volunteer page you can download our Staff Application package. Peter and Sara Craig will be arriving in early January, but we are always interested in hearing from people because the missions staffing needs are always changing.

  2. Leslie and Chris,
    I haven’t been on your blog for about a year but after the quake, I wanted to make sure that you were safe. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. My parents are from Haiti and I know they are devastated. I have only been there once in 2004. Haiti has much work ahead of it. I hope and pray everyone can work together. May God bless you.


  3. Hello Leslie and Chris;
    Greetings from Salmon Arm, BC!
    Very Good news that you are safe.
    Leslie, I just talked to your mom, Anne on the phone. My parents are in Port au Prince and we have not heard from them. Your mom said how connected you are in the local/missionary community and suggested I contact you. I will email you a picture of my mom and dad.(Al and Ev Hromek) They are bible teachers at the International Sentinel Good News School of Ministry 26B Rue Romain, Delmas 33. Port au Prince. If you have any suggestions as far as what else we can do from here, I would sincerely appreciate a response. THANK YOU SO MUCH – Sincerely, Jill Rempel

    • Hi Jill,
      I sent you an email. Let me know if you didn’t get it. I’ve forwarded this on to friends in Port who are working to locate others. Phones are still patchy and it’s difficult to get through.

  4. Chris, you did what God empowered you to do, no less, no more. The rest is in God’s hands. Thank you. I am praying for you all. Oh, and you do not know me. God bless you and all that you care about.

  5. Hi Chris and Leslie,

    Chris, just wanted to let you know our prayers are with you, your family, your ministry, and those whose lives you are touching. We looked for word of you right away. Our hearts broke reading the account of your first night with Jacqueline and the others. It is so hard to deal with the limitations of being human, but your passionate and focused response initially must have given her peace that someone was coming… and Someone did, you know. We will continue to pray for your heart, and so many hearts in Haiti.
    Drew and Cathy

  6. Hi we are the concerned relatives of Kim Kenyon who is on a yacht called KARAKA at Ile a Vache. It arrived on the 9th and your website is on their log. Could you tell us if you had any problems at Ile a Vache with tsunamis and is there any way to know if Karaka is still anchored there.
    Thanks Maggie Kenyon

    • Sorry, we’re a 4 hour drive from Les Cayes where you can take a boat to Iles a Vache. We haven’t heard anything about tsunami’s and the warning was lifted shortly after the earthquake.

  7. I am happy to hear everyone is fine and escaped the earthquake. I found this blog by coincidence when I entered the word Archaie. I have heard reports that Archaie may have been impacted. I do not know if you leave in Archaie but we are looking for our elerly relative who is visiting from Canada. Please email me if you live in the Archaie and hopefully, you are able to help. Thank you in advance.

    • Hi Marie,
      Archaie has been impacted, but no where near the magnitude of Port. I drove through there today and there were buildings broken and some down, but most people seemed to be going about life as much as can be called normal right now.

  8. Praise God you are all ok. My heart sank when I heard of all the devastation ,as your Dad Jerry always gives me an update but I have not had a chance to connect with him until I got his e-mail today. Ann and I have been praying for you and your work since we learned of it years ago. I purchase the wonderful FULL test coffee form your Dad when he has some. My pastor was in Haiti 15 years ago doing building projects and he was amazed at the distruction. Keep safe and thanks for all you do.

  9. Hi Chris and Leslie,
    We’re thankful for your safety and that God has you where you are – in His timing and His will. We’ve been connected in a very small way with Clean Water for Haiti since it started, donating when we’ve been able, inviting participation at a couple of mini-missions fests that we’ve had at Community Baptist in Vernon. We always appreciate receiving your newsletters in the mail – we’re still the old fashioned type – like reading the ink on the page. You were very much on our hearts and in our prayers as news of the earthquake hit – I went to the Clean Water for Haiti website to find any news. It took some manouevering to get to your ‘Rollings in Haiti’ page. I’ve appreciated the heart and the wisdom that has gone into your postings on your blog. I’d like to suggest that you keep the Clean Water for Haiti website updated as I’m sure many people, as I did, will go there first to find out about the ministry — comes up first when you google it — but the updates show nothing newer than 2008 and the blog links don’t link directly to you. — It’s just hard to find you!
    There was a CBC news reporter that mentioned Clean Water for Haiti on the world news shortly after the earthquake struck. I don’t remember his name, but he had done a documentary piece on your work previously and said you’d be well situated to help with the vital clean water supply. CBC has links to organizations to donate to for relief, and I didn’t see Clean Water for Haiti on the list. I see from your blog you’re encouraging people to donate to relief organizations that can supply medical and emergency relief at this point. Blessing to you for that – but you are will be helping people long after the emergency relief is gone. We pray for continued strength and support for all God has in your days ahead.
    Uta and Michael Van Ziffle

    • Unfortunately our web designers computer crashed last year and took with it all of the needed stuff for major website edits. The most we can do is some basic text changes until he finishes school this year and is able to do a redesign for us.

      Thank you for your encouraging words and desire to see our work supported. Please pass the word.

    Good morning my brothers and sisters.

    That was a terrible moment on the 01/12/10; we all suffer an inexplicable moment of terror. I was in Haiti at that time, I am a survivor too and that’s affect me all the way, my partner and I, need to be a part of the recovery, I know you guys doing a perfect jobs. By the time you the only radio station on the air to inform about the tragedies. I never stop crying; now it’s time to contribute to the process. My company ruling to provide a huge empty space that we have on National #1 to relocated does victims and also provide some generators and portable toilette that can accommodate the victims. If you can pass this message to the local government or any other organization that do need space, please let us know, we will be glad to assist them as a part of the contribution for the recovery process. Keep on doing what you doing the best, inform and protect our people. We with you 100%. Peace and love for you and others who do sacrifice their times at the moment where all of us suffering.

  11. Excellent blog you have Leslie. As long term Haiti residents ourselves (Lance and Nadia Durban), I think we may have met somewhere down here. Nadia is a teacher in Union School, a U.S. accredited K-12 school here, while I manufacture electronic components which are are all exported, mostly to the US, the UK, and Canada.

    Keep up the good work, and if either of you are readers, do stop around the English language library club over at the old Petionville Club any Friday afternoon, 4 – 6:30 PM. It’s a weekly social hour where an interesting collection of English speaking residents gather at the end of each week.


    • Hi Lance,

      We did meet you a couple of years ago through Dennis and Nancy McCarthy I think. If I remember correctly your factory was right next to Eko Depot?
      It’s nice to hear from you!


  12. Oh Leslie, It sounds like you have gone through a tough situation with someone who thinks they know better than you. I am so sorry that you had to be “judged” especially when you are 8 months pregnant! What you and Chris do and have done is beyond my comprehension, and for someone to negatively react to that is also beyond comprhension. I am doing a study of Proverbs, and it sounds like a few others need to as well. What you say, how you say it, and when you say it are covered extensively. And of course-some things should just NOT be said. Sending you lots of love-Susan (we have never met, but our family has contibuted a little to your ministry)

  13. Hi Leslie! My husband and I are in the process of adopting two kids. I’ve been enjoying your blog, reading about the process with Olivia, and suddenly I read a post where you mention Elsie and Caanan… and then I read a post about Pierre Payen and I realize that I know who/what you are talking about!

    We’re working with the same creche as Elsie. Met her at Club Indigo when we visited in October. I’ll be back down to Montrouis next week to visit with our kids. We’re at the very early stages, I don’t think the dossier is even in IBESR yet, so it will be a while.

    Blessing on you and your family. I’m a new subscriber, especially now that I can get “local updates”
