Standing in Solidarity

As a resident of Florida, I often jest about our state’s seasons, from Snowbird Season to Hurricane Season. Yet, amidst the occasional inconveniences, we’re far from crisis. However, just 700 miles away lies Haiti, a nation grappling with a political crisis.Haiti, aptly named “the land of mountains,” is not only geologically prone to earthquakes but also burdened by systemic poverty, making it one of the world’s poorest countries. Presently, it faces a dire political...

A Glance Back at 2023

Merry Christmas!As another year comes to a close, I’m optimistic and hopeful. There have been many difficult times in Haiti, but 2023 has been one of the most challenging years ever. BUT GOD has continued to bless. Since the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse on July 7th, 2021, the country has descended into chaos. Ariel Henry, the much-contested Prime Minister, has been largely ineffective against the violent gangs that are ruling much of the country. In 2023 alone, nearly 2,500...

Our Hope is in Christ

The assassination of President Moïse will bring more chaos in the days ahead.  These have been some very difficult days in Haiti.  The political unrest continues to escalate, with trouble coming from every direction it seems.  Kidnappings and senseless violence are on the rise and continue to plague the people.  Add to that the threat of COVID spreading in this island nation, and it can feel overwhelming.  It’s easy to lose hope, if our hope is in anything but Christ.  When we feel lost, we turn...

Update On the Situation in Haiti

I wanted to update you all on the situation in Haiti concerning the Covid-19 pandemic. Initially, the overall belief was that it would not reach Haiti, but the first two cases soon followed. Much like the U.S., panic alongside total dismissal, followed. We, at CHM, began taking precautions as soon as we heard about it. There was still hand sanitizer in the market where we shop – and yes, even toilet paper! I bought as much hand sanitizer, bleach, and soap as we could afford, along with 5-gallon...

Priorities

It is amazing to me how often you come across something new in the Bible. There is always a new way of looking at a passage, a new truth waiting to be revealed. I have been going through Ephesians with the kids and morning staff, and I came across Ephesians 4:17. Paul is writing to a group of gentile (non-Jewish) believers. He tells them to no longer live like gentiles. But wait, they are gentiles. That’s like telling me to no longer live like an American. Isn’t that exactly the point, though?...

Snider’s Update

Dear friends and supporters of Cabaret Haiti Mission: I, Mike, first visited Haiti in 2007 with my home church, Mandarin Baptist Church. I was immediately drawn to the work and ministry of CHM. I had previously studied mission work at Liberty University and felt as though I could make a difference. In August 2009, God called Bonnie and I to move to Haiti to be the full-time onsite directors. After meeting with the Board of Directors in October 2009, the call was confirmed. We took a year to...
