Haiti ACTS Temecula Team April 30 – May 9
Temecula is home safe and sound… The ministry went very well.
Temec will send in a trip report overview (in their own words and we will post it as soon as it is in)
As of right now this means all ACTS teams are back in the USA – right in time of the OK tornado’s…. Keep Haiti in your prayers we understand from our last team – that all relief efforts have stopped. Regular shopping is re-opened and while this is good for business – it does not promise a meal, a drink of water, or a shelter from the storm. Jobs are still unavailable as most buildings are gone; homes are still piles of rubble. Pray for Haiti, my friends pray.
Our Next team in is planned for July..
Note from Bill Paquette – May 3rd
The next team is in route Croix des bouquet, Haiti…
right now at LaX, we are praying for smooth travels right… the plan
is to keep you posted with prayer requests and updates… So stay tuned
Deuteronomy 12:5 But you shall seek the place where the
LORD your God chooses, out of all your tribes, to put His name for His dwelling place; and there you shall go.
Pastor Bill leads the next team from his home Church – Calvary Chapel Redwoods.
Pastors Eric and Bill, return to Haiti carrying supplies & gifts. With the needs changing and Haiti’s utilities being reestablished they also did a new assessment for the incoming teams… setting up new transportation contacts, ministry ports and locating supply stores. Both me shared in the midweek service and testify the revival DID take place in Haiti!
The verse God gave us to confirm our “going” is OOO so real!!!
Deuteronomy 12:5 NKJV But you shall seek the place where the LORD your God chooses, out of all your tribes, to put His name for His dwelling place; and there you shall go.
Vancouver ACTS Team accomplished many things during the February trip. The team learned that simple things seem to matter the most. They decided to clean a trash pile that had accumulated after the earthquake. The team met some unwelcomed rats and a bug haven, but, once the task completed and they came out on the other side a bit dirty, the Pastor looked and saw, these ACTS people come to serve and not to be served… the bond of fellowship grew tighter and the LORD was glorified in simple acts of love.
March 8th a small Dallas based team is going back to Haiti to follow-up with the Pastor to see how the ACTS network can come along side to serve him and the Haitian people most. The team will be working to establish plans, lay the groundwork for more ACTS teams that will be arriving in Haiti over the next few months.
Here’s the latest from Randy Foster:
We had a great day today. We went into port au prince and teamed up with another Dr. Who needed extra manpower to operate a clinic outside of one of the large tent cities. Hundreds were served to meet their phyical needs and 12 received or recommitted their lives to Christ as we prayed with them before they left. Long day. Little sleep. So tired but satisfied.
A team of ACTS servant responders arrived in Haiti at 3AM (EST) on February 9, 2010. It is a small team from Calvary Chapel Vancouver. They, along with 2 other teams will pick up where the team from Calvary Chapel West Grove left off.
We will post more information as it comes in from the teams.
Please continue to pray for them and the people of Haiti.
This morning at 0503CST a 6.1 aftershock earthquake hit 35 miles WSW of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. I was contacted a few minutes after the quake by our assessment team. They are all ok. They have moved outside and are safe. Please join us in praying for the team and those who still live in Haiti.
The EOC will post more information as it becomes available.

The assessment team made it into Haiti yesterday afternoon. They were able to secure lodging and begin looking at the areas around PAP. The team is in good health and praising God for the work going on there. Today they will be talking to many survivors and assessing the needs.
Please continue to pray that GOD will protect the team, provide the needs of the people and lead them to the least, the last and the lost.
When the assessment is finished, we will know more about what is needed, but for now you can help by prayer and with donations of any size. All donations will be used in the relief effort currently going on in Haiti. You can donate

The ACTS assessment team is currently in the Dominican Republic on the way to Haiti. Last night at 2240 the team arrived in the Santo Domingo airport. They were able to get to the hotel for a meal and some rest before leaving this morning. Already, the team has seen God’s hand moving. In Miami, they were able to pray with people who were from Haiti. They have met several other friendly and thankful people along the way.
Please continue to pray as the assessment moves forward. Today will mainly be a day of travel. The estimated trip is long under “good” conditions. We are unsure of the travel conditions along this route, but we serve a might God.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
An ACTS Disaster Relief assessment team will be flying into the Santo Domingo airport in the Dominican Republic tomorrow night. From there, they will be traveling to the city of Jacmel, Haiti. As you can imagine, Jacmel has as much damage at PAP, but very little news coverage. Many times areas are severely damaged outside of the major cities, but no one hears about them. Saving lives and bringing hope to the least, the last and the lost has always been the vision of ACTS.
Please continue to pray as this team follows the leading of the Holy Spirit in this assessment. As you can imagine, things can change quickly.
Proverbs 16:9 A man’s heart plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps.

Hello fellow servants of the Most High God,
As you already know, the situation in Haiti has gone from bad to worse. As the hours pass, more and more need becomes evident. Rescue workers are doing all that they can, but time is our enemy. Every day the chance of survival for many grows smaller and smaller.
As the cry for help increases, ACTS Servant Responders and many other Christian brothers and sisters are preparing to minister to those affected. There is an assessment team preparing to leave on Monday to be on scene and begin relaying first hand information back to the EOC so that as God leads, lives can be saved. Once contacts are made, we will begin sending responders, supplies and most importantly the love of Jesus Christ to the people who so desperately need it now.
The ACTS Emergency Operations Center is calling on you for prayer and financial support. Even the smallest amount can make the difference in someone’s life.
Only God can minister to the needs of the people He loves so much. Please help send His “ministers a flame of fire” to those who need to know He is still there.
