Your weekly five-point summary of what's new with Nadege.
1. What's Coming:
We've been talking to a few people in the know in terms of construction in Haiti. We've got a small team planning their trip to Haiti next month. So, what's coming? Phase one of construction- the security wall!
2. Prayer Request:
As we sift through the work of restoring hope to survivors of sexual violence, we recognize that our safe house will be treating a symptom of a larger problem: a cultural undervaluing of women in Haiti. Women are seen as inferior to men, and poorly mistreated as a result. Join us this week in praying for a change, both in the culture as a whole and in the hearts of individual Haitian men.
3. Photo/Video of the Week:
4. Thankful Thought:
Our hearts swell with gratitude when people take the time to share a word of encouragement or support with us. This week, we've gotten an extra dose of love and support, and we are feeling so thankful. Knowing the community is behind us is a wonderful feeling!
