Caleb is our son from Haiti. Only a year ago in August they were married. Two weeks ago Fastina gave birth to their first child Caiden. She passed away Saturday morning. Now this family has to go on without her. Right now they need your prayers and help with hospital, funeral expenses and lost wages. Please find a few minutes to pray for them and a few dollars to help with financial stresses. Thank you
