- GLOBAL MISSION
- WAYS TO SUPPORT
The following is a letter written by IM global servants in Haiti Kihomi Ngwemi, Nuzunga Mabiduga and Nancy and Stephen James to update IM on the suffering and relief efforts in the aftermath of the October 6 earthquake.
We pray you are well in our Lord Jesus’ love and grace. We are well here in Haiti following a 5.9 earthquake off the north shore of the island of Haiti on October 6th with subsequent aftershocks twice since then.
We are writing you to provide you with a response to this earthquake from the perspective of your global servants here in Haiti. We four IM global servants have met and discussed together the ministry dimensions of the suffering this earthquake has caused God’s people in Haiti and have prayed together for those most affected by the natural disaster.
We have asked God to grant us wisdom and humility to know best how he wants us to respond to our brothers and sisters in need at this time and wish to communicate our insights to you, should the wider body of Christ through the American Baptist Churches find themselves called upon to respond in some way to this event.
We hope this letter is helpful as a resource in your ministry to the suffering ones in Haiti.
In our Savior’s love and peace, your global servants:
Kihomi Ngwemi Nzunga Mabudiga Nancy James Stephen James
