If you have not read the previous blog.... read it first, then come back to this one.
There are many organizations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and people working together in Haiti to combat the bacteria that is infecting Haiti - Cholera. You know we (Kevin and I) have expressed concern for our children's safety.
Bad news is the town about 15 miles from us, Arcahaie, now has a contaminated river. The bacteria is getting closer to us in the water supply. The good news is, we have spoken to the epidemiologist doctor that came in with Samaritan's Purse (SP) and he seems to think there is no need to evacuate our children at this time. From what I understand, this doctor has worked with Cholera for over 30 years, all around the world. He also said that because we have deep water wells (over 50 ft.) here on our property an we chlorinate our water, he is not concerned about our water becoming contaminated. PTL!
However, I have been in brainstorming meetings all morning with SP and I am concerned a little. My concern is not that our water source will be contaminated, but that flies can also carry this disease from one spot to another and I don't want to put them at risk.
Keep praying for us for wisdom and discernment. We want to be wise and not overlook our currently safe situation until it is too late and someone becomes ill. God bless and have a great Sunday worshipping our Lord corporately. We love you all.
