30 DAYS AND COUNTING…

Dear Friar Suppliers,

In 30 short days we leave to go to Haiti! Each day I wake up and I think of all the things that I have not done. My list has lists!! Daily I go into my emails and there are letters from the different missionaries who are coming asking all of their questions. Each question is a good one. After all, I put myself in their place, remembering back to my first trip. I remember thinking and saying to Fr Conrad; “oh, ok I’ll go ONCE.” That was 15 trips ago!

Our nurses had a Medical trip in the middle of November. When I asked how it went they said that it was sad because so many of the people that they were treating are literally starving to death! As Friar Suppliers we send barrels to Haiti each month. Each barrel is filled with food and medicine that gets donated to us each month. We did not know it, but after checking with the shipping company they told us that the Department of Customs was on strike for 11 weeks. Since there were no inspections being done, nothing was able to be delivered! However, finally last Monday 27 barrels filled with food and medicine arrivered at the Little Brothers of St Therese. Our Nurses also shared that even the Brothers had little to no food. We are taking care of that problem.

As it gets closer to the departure date of our trip, our needs for the trip seem to increase. Last year we had a total of 23 people including Friars and Sisters going on the 2013 trip. This year including Friars and Sister we have 19 volunteers from various States and 8 Friars and 2 Sisters coming. That’s GREAT! This means that 29 people will get to meet Jesus Christ in the poor this year. The potential for what we can do is just awesome!

I would like to share with you some the financials that are involved with this trip. Some people have asked me to be specific so that they can choose which aspect of the trip they would like to concentrate on.

The list below is just a small part of what I need money for.

Houses cost $400.00 to construct with walls, ceiling of tin and a door with 3 hinges. Building 100

Latrine cost $250.00 to construct with walls, ceiling of tin and a door- no TV! Building 25

Rice and beans 50lb bag cost $50.00 to purchase, we need at least 200 bags for the food handout

3 Security Guards that we must employ just to watch over us. That’s $150.00 each.

19 Translators that we need just to get the work done and communicate with the people in both the

Medical Clinic and the Construction Crew

35 Haitian workers will be helping us finish the job $150.00 each

8 Friars and 2 Sisters will be coming on the trip. I need people to help pay for both the airfare and

their lodging. Airfare is $675.00 and lodging is $30.00 per day per person. The Brothers in

Haiti do not have the funds to let them stay for free.

2 generators- brand new $750.00 each!

5 ladders $75.00each– brand new.

Additional tools that need to be purchased before the trip $500.00

So as you can see the list of items we need is large. The budget for this trip is about $120,000. We send letters begging to everyone we know. Each person going on the trip is required to do some fundraising. Please see Friar Suippliers.com because our Web Master Maryellen Barret will be putting up the show I was on with Fr Andrew Apostoli on EWTN.

So please I REALLY NEED YOUR HELP. During this Christmas season could you please sacrifice something so that I could build a shelter for someone, or a latrine so that they do not get Cholera or give some children who are hungry some food. All things are possible with God and You!

All checks can be sent to our treasurer, Eileen Garbe. Checks should say Haiti in the memo column and if you want it for a specific purpose right it in the memo section. If you have any questions please call me at 631-226-0015.

Yours truly in Christ

Charlie Moran

UPDATE FROM THE FRANCISCAN FRIARS OF THE RENEWAL
Houses for Haiti

MISSION PROJECT 2014 HOMES FOR HAITI

January 2-11, 2014

EVANGELIZATION – This project will be run by 2 CFR Sisters. Sr Collette and Sr Maria Grace. They will have 2 laypeople assisting them, Helen Hartmann and Judy Sabo

(Judy’s daughter is Sr Francesca. They will be going into the little villages and the St Therese School each day and spreading the word of Jesus Christ. They will have a translator with them each day. They will talk about Divine Mercy, give each person a rosary and teach them how to pray it and talk about different Bible verses that can make a difference in their lives.

HOMES AND TOILETS- We have committed ourselves to building 100 homes. Our version of a home and yours are HUGE differences. We build 20 x 20 structures of 2 x4, strapping wood and a tin roof. Each house gets a door that can lock. We do this through a lottery system. Each Villager is allowed one ticket to win. BUT if you already live in a house you are voided out when we get there. My guidelines are strict because EVERYONE in Haiti thinks they need a new house. We give first preference to those living in tents, mothers with children who live in run down houses, and houses that look like they will fall down. These families will all get new homes. If they live in a house that has a bad roof we will repair or replace their roof. There are some exceptions to the rule but we try and stick to these rules.

MEDICAL MISSION- We have 8 Doctors and Nurses coming down to minister to the poor. We treat everyone for free- thanks to you! The medical mission teams goes to Haiti every 3 months so we can give enough medicine for 3 months until our next visit. We have about 350 people that we see every 3 months so they are given appointments’ ahead of time so they know when to come. If our doctors and nurses cannot treat them, we bring them to Haiti General hospital and have them treated and we pay the bill. Thanks to You! We built a Medical Clinic 4 years ago and it was probably the best $4000.00 I have ever spent- Yes four thousand dollars for a Medical Clinic. Purchasing the necessary medication to keep it going is an ongoing “fund raiser.”

FOOD HANDOUT- We give out 45lbs of food to about 600 people. Each family gets bags of rice, beans, flour, sugar, spaghetti, oil, plus a rosary! Food is given out by a lottery system set up at the church and in the school. Parents who are the most in need get first preference. Unfortunately there are always hundreds of people who we can’t help. But the more financial assistance we get the more we feed. When deciding who to give food to, woman who are pregnant are always at the top of our list, as are the older men and women who have trouble finding work, and those families that come to our Medica Mamba line for staving babies.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS-Since 2003 when we started we have built 2 Medical Clinics, rebuilt a School in Port au Prince, rebuilt a Church after the Earthquake. We have built 250 desks for the school. After the earthquake we built 375 houses for people to live in. We built 250 latrines in Rivere Friode, Carrefour, Haiti. Because of the latrines built we received an award last year because the number cases of Cholera went down severely. We built 9 houses and 9 latrines for the 9 families who are blind. We also feed these 9 families weekly through a generous benefactor in Duluth, Mn. Our medical staff goes 3x a year and treats about 1200 people each time. We charge nothing to be seen by the doctor and given out medicine. We currently have 58 children on our Medica Mamba program which feeds staving children. On each trip we have given 600 people an average of 65lbs of food each. In our 7th and 8th grades we are teaching Haitian kids how to grow there own crops. We hired an agronomist who teaches them how to clear land, plant seeds, water the crops. We pay for the water rites, seed, land usage, and the Agronomist salary

GOD BLESS ALL THOSE WHO SERVE CHRIST.

Pope Francis on Wednesday reflected on the great gift we received when we were baptized.
Speaking to the crowds gathered in St. Peter’s Square for the weekly General Audience, the Pope began a series of catecheses on the Sacraments, starting with Baptism.
He said that the Second Vatican Council tells us that the Church herself is a “Sacrament”, a grace-filled sign which makes Christ’s saving work present in history, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
And speaking of Baptism, the first of the Church’s seven Sacraments, Pope Francis said “it gives us new birth in Christ, makes us sharers in the mystery of his death and resurrection, grants the forgiveness of sin and brings us new freedom as Go …
