Church of God world Missions Director Douglas LeRoy has released the latest information concerning the Church of God in Haiti. This update follows an update posted on January 17.
Lovell and Ginny Cary and Lloyd Frazier arrived home safely Saturday January 16. They will under go medical tests this week. When a wall fell on them in Haiti, the roof of the car crashed on to them pushing them downward. They worked themselves out of the car, but the overseer of Haiti died from the crash.
Dr. Elysee Joseph, national overseer, was removed from the car when the top was cut off, and they could reach him. His body is currently being held in a mortuary until a proper funeral can be prepared.
The Canadian group of four that was ministering in Haiti will arrive home tomorrow. The Ohio group arrived home on Saturday. We do not have authenticated information on the Southern New England group as of yet.
The first relief team, led by Bishop Fedlyn Beason, will go into Haiti from the Dominican Republic on Thursday. They will take food and medical supplies. Some of Brother Joseph’s family from the States will go with the group. They will meet with those ministers they can and have a brief memorial service.
Elvis Medina, overseer of Dominican Republic, is already in Haiti and reports that 6,000 people are living on Church of God compound and of those there are 250 people injury and 100 dead. Please continue to keep Haiti in your prayers.
If you would like to contribute to the Haiti Earthquake Relief effort, please indicate Project Number 7650042.
–Douglas LeRoy, General Director
