Precious Cargo Arrives in Haiti

After weeks of anticipation and a few bumps in the road, 10 containers of relief supplies from Cross being carried by a treasure-hunting ship reached our ministry partners in Les Cayes, Haiti.

The 20-foot containers — carrying food, water, medicines, and other urgently-needed relief supplies — were a welcome site to our ministry partner, who runs a home for more than 600 orphans and has been spearheading our efforts to help earthquake refugees pouring into Haiti’s southern region.
