UPDATE ON SITUATION IN HAITI FROM DOUG:
"I arrived in Port-au-Prince on Sunday after 59 angry men from Delmas were throwing rocks and chanting inflammatory things. Fr. Tom invited them into the chapel and gave each the equivalent of $6 and a rosary, then they left peacefully.
Travel has been impossible till yesterday, as roadblocks were lifted. Fr. Tom & I are in no foreseeable danger at the moment. We have met several times with leaders in the Cite Soleil neighborhood. Schools remain closed and we are using this time to work on building projects which we will share soon in upcoming posts.
School re-opened after the February incidents, but the atmosphere is still tense. At present we closed the school for a couple of days as the violence is happening again. We continue to trust God to protect us as He always has.
We are grateful for all the prayers & notes of concern & folks reaching out. We are very good & filled with holy optimism. Thank you all!"
