Asking your prayers and donations for our missions in Haiti as we prepare for the Great Feast of Pentecost.

This is the end of the school year in Haiti, as elsewhere, and teachers have to be paid.  I have a safe way to transfer money to Haiti set up by Fr Gregory.  However, donations have dwindled because people do not know what is happening or who is responsible for the HOM.  Bishop Gregory of North and South America is responsible, but so far no one Has been    specifically assigned.  

HOM has a dedicated bank account and money is sent directly from the account at the bank to Fonkoze’.  Fonkoze'
is a non-profit org. which handles financial transactions for a VERY small fee.  The HOM bank acct. has only $1300
Hopefully  The transaction will be made next Monday

Until someone takes over that responsibility I will continue to receive, deposit, and transfer the HOM funds.

In Christ, I thank you for your prayerful attention to this and future requests 
Matushka Anastasia

PS Very soon we will be asking for donations for the transfer of the free food to Haiti.
      READ mail below from Bishop Ambrose GOC.
      Also i need some one to translate messages from Haiti without having to ask Bishop Ambrose

  Dear Matushka and fathers,
I have received several urgent messages from Haiti (this is just the latest one). Several years ago I visited Haiti twice, at the invitation of Metropolitan Agafangel, as there was no bishop of the ROCA who spoke French. Unfortunately, with my responsibilities in Africa (I have 47 priests there under my pastoral care) and with my advanced years it is totally impossible for me to assume the care for these souls, let alone for the material subsistence of the Haitian Mission. I therefore implore you to do whatever you can to keep things going there; if this is impossible, then at least they should know definitely, in order to wind down operations of the schools. This would be a great pity, but even more if the parishes to were to close!   +A. 
Honorable Évêque Ambroise, je vous salue dans le nom de notre Seigneur Jésus Christ. Souffrez de vous écrire ce matin pour demander à tous les bienfaiteurs de l'Eglise Orthodoxe ou autres bienfaiteurs de quelconque tendance religieuse de venir en aide avec notre école ici en Haïti plus précisément ICOSA à jacmel qui se trouve dans une situation difficile de payer ses enseignants depuis le mois d'avril. ICOSA a l'habitude de recevoir une subvention de 2000 dollars us chaque mois afin de faciliter le payroll des professeurs qui viennent directement de matushka par transfert chaque mois, sommes reçues de quelques volontaires de l'église mais depuis le mois d'avril, rien n'a été reçu pour le payroll des professeurs et on a écrit plusieurs lettres aux responsables aux États unis depuis lors pas aucune réponse, père Amboise les a ecrit aussi pas de réponse alors que ICOSA se trouve en difficulté de répondre à ses obligations. Sur ce, honorable Évêque Ambroise nous vous prions de faire quelques interventions auprès des responsables des États unis afin de nous venir en aide. Quelques emails des responsables : celui de Matushka, celui de père Dimitry Weiber à new York, celui de père John.    Nous comptons sur vous notre cher Évêque Ambroise. Que le Seigneur continue de vous protéger dans vos travaux spirituels.Merci!
