I am so proud of our leaders at the Cabaret Baptist Children’s Home. Thousands of people in the Cabaret area are homeless. In the midst of their own personal suffering, our leaders are guiding our ministry to focus on the needs of the hurting people in our community. Here are just a few ways they have ministered in amazing ways:
The Cabaret Baptist Church put together a seven member committee today to start identifying and prioritizing those affected by the earthquake in the Cabaret area. They have already started helping some with food, clothes and shelter, even before emergency supplies have arrived.
Our Cabaret Baptist Academy will open Monday, Jan 18 (tomorrow morning as I write this) with more children from collapsed schools in the neighborhood villages like Vigner, Leveque and Cabaret city. This will not only get the children back into something of a routine, it will provide their parents with time to clean up and begin repairs. It will also provide the children with at least one meal per day.
The Cabaret Baptist Orphanage has opened its doors to all who are displaced and fleeing the devastation of Port-au-Prince. We have offered shelter to various assessment and media teams needing a safe and secure place to stay, some should be arriving soon.
Our Children’s Home staff have been busy responding to e-mail from frantic family and friends all over the world trying to get any news about residents in the Cabaret area who are stuck without any means of communication. Here are a few of the responses we’ve received:
“Thank you so much. It is a blessing that you are able to have contact in this time of concern and need.”
“We can not even begin to express how your compassionate actions have blessed our family during this time. It was an absolute gift to receive your email (and so quickly) giving us details about the unknown situation & safety of our adoptive childrens birth family in Cabaret, Haiti. It was an added joyful bonus to get pictures to visualize the damage they endured and to see Andremene smiling despite their situation. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!”
Please continue to pray for our leadership and staff members in Haiti as they continue to minister in a very difficult situation.

Haiti is the kind of place you have to see to believe. Surfing the web at work or at home in no way compares to the real thing. We invite you to join us as we travel to Cabaret and experience first hand extreme poverty. Come laugh and play with the children that desperately need your attention. Please consider getting away from what is comfortable and experience life in Haiti.
