Hurricane Matthew Update

UPDATE FROM KATE: Here safe and sound. It's worse than we thought. It's terrible. Funds are needed badly. Please please help. Pass this message along. I'm super happy I'm here. The people say they are greatly encouraged and they can't believe we made it there this fast. The most commonly asked question is how did we find out they had a hurricane and how did we know Jeremie was destroyed. They don't know the whole world is watching them. The rain is pouring on us tonight. Cholera is everywhere and there are so many people with it. We are in a tent so I guess it's pouring on those that don't have one. Breaks my heart quite a bit.
UPDATE: Bryan Bartow, his daughter Katelyn and pilot and friend John Fussle are on the ground today in Port-au-Prince, loading a plane with medical supplies, locally purchased food, and water purification systems. They will have landed in Jérémie by the time you read this. Thank you to those who have sent in donations.
UPDATE: Reports are coming in that there are 400+ dead in Jeremie. We are currently in fund-raising mode and will be traveling to Jeremie to help in financing reconstruction efforts according to the most severe needs. We are also will be putting together construction teams for the near future and will keep you updated on dates and duration. Please consider donating to this cause.
We are now collecting money for a relief effort directed toward the most serious needs in that area.

In 1965, Full Life Crusade was founded out of necessity. It began when Wesley Smith, a 26-year-old school teacher from Flint, Michigan, began leading many of his students to the Lord. These students began taking the good news of Jesus Christ into the streets. Wes rented a store front building where they could all meet along with other adults for Bible studies. He began to feel God calling him to preach the gospel. He married soon afterward and started financially supporting his father-in-law, George Clérié, who was a pastor in the country of Haiti. Pastor Clérié had been preaching and pastoring in Haiti for 30 years, starting 14 churches, 5 schools, and leading nearly 10,000 people to Christ. When he died, Wes quit his job and began taking groups of people to Haiti to expose them to the needs there. These were the simple beginnings of Full Life Crusade.
