Episode 59: A Haitian Christian reports on what is happening to Christians and churches in his country. Also: How one ministry is using coffee to bring estranged Christians back together


Haiti’s government is all but nonexistent and gangs are in near-total control of the country, causing death and destruction, food and medical shortages, and spreading violence. Church of Christ congregations, members, and ministries are suffering along with the rest of the country. Hear Church of Christ minister and Haitian political refugee Roolite Religieaux talk about what he knows from his family’s firsthand accounts back home. Also hear Ken Bever, executive director and founder of Hope for Haiti’s Children, talk about that ministry’s ongoing efforts to care for children and orphans in the face of growing danger and difficulty.

Also in this episode: Dr. Drew Baker, executive director of Common Grounds Unity, talks about that ministry’s "caffeinated" effort to bring together estranged Christians to give unity a try.
