iciHaiti – Insecurity: The Adventist Church hard hit
03/06/2024 09:24:50

Pierre Caporal, President of the Haitian Union of the Adventist Church, speaking to members of the Executive Committee of the Inter-American Division (IAD) during the biannual meetings of the IAD held earlier this month in Miami, Florida, drew up a grim assessment of the situation in Haiti

« 55 churches were closed due to the increase in the number of gangs taking over different communities and regions, and this number continues to increase every day

[…] More than 2,000 Adventist families displacedincluding 18 families of pastors and conference and mission administrators.

Homes of 305 Adventist families burned by gangswhich means they lost all their belongings,” added Caporal.

« […] Some churches are not able to meet in person, but members try to watch online to follow other churches or follow the church service on Voice of Hope Radio,” he said. Voice of Hope is the radio station operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church nationwide.

Port-au-Prince and the northwest of the country operate with 40 to 60% of their members, said Mr. Caporal. Some churches meet in tents or rent space, and most churches meet for worship in the afternoon because it is not safe to meet in the evening, he said.
