RHEMA Needs a Truck!

In October, 2012, a work crew including Harry Gruits (President, RHEMA International), Chris Callas (a RHEMA volunteer), Chris’ friend Jeff and Brother G (from California) landed in Port Au Prince, Haiti.  They loaded up lumber and other supplies and headed out on the five hour trip to Bocozelle and the hospital.  The plan was to do some much needed repairs at the hospital and residence, help distribute food and pour cement for the foundation of the warehouse that RHEMA is building for food and other storage.  Unfortunately, on the way to the hospital that night, they ran into an abandoned semi-truck on the pitch dark road and RHEMA’s truck was totaled.  Miraculously, no one was seriously injured.  Shaken and bruised, they arrived at the hospital (through the help of an American missionary couple) and the next morning they set out to work and accomplish their goals for the trip.  However, now there is a new problem.  RHEMA needs a new truck!  Funds are currently being raised that will allow RHEMA to replace their much needed vehicle.  Harry Gruits will be making his next trip to Haiti at the end of February, 2013.  He hopes to have enough funds raised to meet this very serious need by that time.  Can you help?  You can donate online or contact the RHEMA office at 248.652.2450 or email@rhemainternational.org.
