A new letter is available from Pere Kesner Ajax, Coordinator of the Partnership Program and Director of the Bishop Tharp Institute in Les Cayes:
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Please let me take some time to give you some update of the situation of Haiti and your beloved partners in the Episcopal Church of Haiti. God has saved the lives of the Bishop, the 32 active priests, 9 retired priests, the 6 deacons, the 17 seminarians, 3 nuns and the 4 missionaries and their families. All private houses have been damaged to some degree, but all churches, schools, rectories clinics, and hospitals from Croix des Bouquets to Miragoane are not permitted to be used.
In Port au Prince and Leogane, all structures of the Episcopal Church have been completely destroyed. We cannot evaluate how many parishioners and staff members we lost. In the south, BTI is OK but the Saint Sauveur rectory is not safe to sleep in. The seminarians went back to their home town; one of them is a physician, and he has stayed at College St Pierre in Port au Prince to give first aid to the people. The Episcopal Church of Haiti has set up more than 7 centers (by the time of this publishing, the Diocese had 21 centers caring for 23,000+ people) to support victims, mostly in the worst hit areas where the Bishop is based with whatever supplies they have been able to receive.
