I received word late last week from Daniel that one of our pastor friends in Haiti was killed Friday night. Pastor Simon was the current president of the Union of Evangelical Baptist Churches of Haiti (elected after Pastor Diogene’s term was up). He arrived at his home late Friday night after attending a two day pastors’ conference and was confronted by several men. We don’t know why but just know that a ransom was initially demanded. When the police checked they found Simon dead from a gunshot wound in a field behind his house. His wife was also shot, lost quite a bit of blood and is in a hospital in Port-au-Prince. Their children are all living in the US, going to school. Please prayer for the family and all affected by this tragedy.
