"First, our teams here are safe. And we have been in touch with all of our teams and they are doing okay.
"We have heard that all flights in and out have been cancelled through the weekend so we are making plans to hunker down for the next few days. We are in touch with our folks in the field and will stay apprised of the situation and begin to plan accordingly. We are calling the airlines to see what the options there are for moving people out. So, we'll play that by ear as well. I'll let you know what we come up with. We are also in touch with some of the Methdodist Church of Haiti (EMH) leaders who are monitoring things for us and keeping us posted on what they hear and know.
"Our general plan is to try and get out tomorrow and bring in our teams in the field. There is a little more traffic on the main street but even if things open up a bit, we'll give it another day. And, we need to hear what places like Carrefour and Leogane look like.
"Teams in the Guest House are keeping busy - painting, preparing for a Christmas party for the children on Sunday, and more.
"I spoke with Pastor Maude and she said the teams in Petit Goave are safe and okay. I spoke with Ruth Depestre (Manager of the Methodist Guest House in Petionville) and she said one of the lay members from Mellier is looking after the team to see that they have adequate food, water, etc. So we are good there.
"There are alot more sirens going on around us, some tear gas was shot off around the streets here, the streets were impassable yesterday, but all in all, at least around here everything was of a non-violent nature. I was out on the streets a number of times and again there was no real violence. I know it is different in other places.
"We will also be in touch with the Embassy.
"I'll keep in touch as the day goes on."
