Desperation leads to riots

Dear friends,

I have been in North Carolina meeting donors, thanking benefactors and speaking at clubs and churches. It's been busy but fruitful. I've been in touch with my staff down in Les Cayes and the situation remains tense. Various reports from this area indicate that several Haitians were killed and many more injured as the people protested the new increases in food costs. Please continue to pray for the safety of our children and that a solution can be found to appease the Haitians in these troubled times.
Am heading to New Jersey from here and should be back home in a week. Needless to say, your support is essential and greatly appreciated. Help us get the word out by emailing all your contacts and linking them to http://www.freethekids.org/. Thank you and God bless.

Father Marc

for God is not unrighteous to forget your work and the love which ye showed toward his name, in that ye ministered unto the saints, and still do minister.

I hope peace can return to the area and you can continue your work :) Prayers go with you guys and our thanks for helping the kids :)

I know that the current evil and unrest won't stop the good you guys are doing.
