On 6/18/2003 at 1316hrs., Rev. Hansen received this prophecy:
"Haiti: a land drenched in the blood of goats, and sheep, and chickens, and pigs. Yes, the blood offered to please the gods of hell will not save you for what is coming upon your land. Only my precious blood from my Son Jesus can protect you from the wrath coming in the future.
Yes, blood is coming and only my blood can spare your soul from the justice that is coming against the gods of hell. You worship other gods and spirits, but 'I AM that I AM Jesus Christ' is returning to judge the nations and returning to judge Haiti.
Yes, your leadership, whose bodies have been baptized in the blood of animals (pigs and goats etc.), will not help you now. The gods and spirits from other lands far away across the oceans will not help you now, for I am coming back to judge all. Thus saith the Word and the Spirit of the only God that lives, Jesus Christ."
On February 6, 2004, Rev. Hansen received another prophecy:
"Aristide, Aristide, you have led the people in the ways of Satan. I have had about enough of your demoniac blood sacrifices/baptisms. Unless you turn to me (Jesus) the God that has the authority over heaven and hell, I will remove you from office.
You have mocked my precious blood with your practices of witchcraft and sorcery and now I will mock the power of your gods and allow you to loose your grip on power.
Understand only I can keep you in power."
Prophecy immediately comes to pass March 1, 2004:
Haiti President Jean-Bertrand Aristide was chased from office into exile.

History of Haiti:
Explored by Columbus on December 6, 1492, Haiti's native Arawaks fell victim to Spanish rule. In 1697, Haiti became the French colony of Saint-Dominique and a leading sugarcane producer dependent on the importation of African slaves. In 1791, an insurrection erupted among the slave population resulting in a declaration of independence by Pierre-Dominique Toussaint l'Ouverture in 1801. Napoleon Bonaparte suppressed the independence movement, but it eventually triumphed under Jean-Jacques Dessalines in 1804 , who gave the new nation the Arawak name Haiti. Haiti became the first black republic to declare independence.
After a succession of dictatorships, a bankrupt Haiti accepted a U.S. customs receivership from 1905 to 1941. Haiti's high population growth made it the most densely populated nation in the Western Hemisphere.
In 1949, after four years of democratic rule by President Dumarsais Estimr, dictatorship returned under Gen. Paul Magloire, who was succeeded by Francois Duvalier, nicknamed "Papa Doc," in 1957. Duvalier's secret police, the "Tontons Macoutes," ensured political stability with brutal efficiency. Upon Duvalier's death in 1971, his son, Jean-Claude Duvalier, or "Baby Doc," succeeded as ruler. In the early 1980s, Haiti became one of the first countries to face an AIDS epidemic. Fear of the disease caused tourists to stay away. Unrest generated by the resulting economic crisis forced Baby Doc to flee the country in 1986.
The country's first elected chief executive, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, a Roman Catholic priest took office in February 1991. The military took control in a coup nine months later. A UN peacekeeping force, led by the U.S. arrived in 1994. Aristide was restored to office and Rene Preval became his successor in 1996. U.S. soldiers and UN peacekeepers left in 2000.
In 2000, former president Aristide was re-elected president in elections boycotted by the opposition. Aristide grew more authoritarian. Violent protests rocked the country in January 2004 with protesters demanding Aristide's resignation. By February, an armed revolt was under way. Aristide was ousted on February 29. A U.S.-led international force of 2,300 entered Haiti to attempt to restore order, and an interim government took over.
In September 2004, Hurricane Jeanne ravaged Haiti, killing more than 2,400 people. Lawlessness and gang violence were widespread, and the interim government had no control over parts of the country.
Haiti held elections on February 7, 2006. Former prime minister Rene Preval was seen as the favorite. When the election count indicated that Preval's lead was dwindling and that he would not win an outright majority, Preval contested the election and charged that "massive fraud and gross errors had stained the process." On February 14, the interim government halted the election count. The following day, after the votes were re-tabulated, Preval was declared the winner.
In April 2008, Prime Minister Jacques-Edouard Alexis was removed from office by the Senate, which held him responsible for the poor economy. President Rene Preval designated Ericq Pierre as the new prime minister, but the lower house of Parliament rejected Pierre. In July, Parliament approved the nomination of Michele Pierre-Louis for prime minister and she became the second woman prime minister of Haiti.
The Senate voted in November 2009 to oust Prime Minister Michele Pierre-Louis. The Senate claimed that she had not done enough to lift Haiti out of its state of misery. She was replaced by Jean-Max Bellerive.
In January 2010, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck 10 miles southwest of Port-au-Prince. It was the region's worst earthquake in 200 years. The quake leveled many sections of the city, destroying government buildings, foreign aid offices, and countless slums. Prime Minister Preval said, "Parliament has collapsed. The tax office has collapsed. Schools have collapsed. Hospitals have collapsed." He called the death toll "unimaginable." According to a draft report commissioned for the United States Agency for International Development, the number of fatalities were between 46,000 and 85,000 people. International aid poured in.
Already a victim of regular hurricanes, Haiti faced a cholera outbreak. In November, the Haitian government said that the death toll had reached 1,034, with 16,799 people treated for cholera or symptoms of the disease.
In November's presidential election, there were widespread allegations of irregularities. Opposition candidates called for a re-vote, but their requests were rebuffed. On December 7, 2010, the country's electoral commission announced that Mirlande Manigat and Jude Celestin would face off in the second round of voting. These results seem to contradict what election observers conducting exit polls had expected. Early results had Michel Martelly coming in second behind Manigat. The results set off protests.
In January 2011, Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier, a former dictator, returned unexpectedly to Haiti, where he was questioned by prosecutors who charged him with embezzlement and corruption before releasing him. Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the former president of Haiti, also returned. He returned home to Haiti from exile in South Africa.
In a leaked report reviewing Haiti's presidential election, the Organization of American States found that Michel Martelly had obtained more votes than Jude Celestin. The report said that Martelly, not Celestin, should face Mirlande Manigat in the run-off election. Following pressure from the United States, Jude Celestin withdrew from the run-off election. In April, it was announced that Martelly won the run-off election in a landslide. Martelly took office in May 2011 and named Daniel Gerard Rouzier as Prime Minister.
On October 5, 2011, Garry Conille was appointed prime minister by the Haitian Parliament. His confirmation came months after Jean-Max Bellerive's resignation from the position and after the Senate rejected the nominations of Bernard Gousse and Daniel Rouzier. Conille became the 16th and youngest Prime Minister since the country's 1987 Constitution.
In January 2012, several Haitian police officers were convicted in the prison massacre that happened after an earthquake in 2010. They received sentences ranging from one to 13 years in prison.
In late February 2012, Prime Minister Garry Conille resigned. Conille decided to resign after he called a meeting with his cabinet ministers and none of them attended.
On April 12, 2012, cholera vaccines began. More than 7,000 Haitians had been killed and more than 530,000 infected with the disease.
On May 3, 2012, Laurent Lamothe was approved as Haiti's new prime minister by the Chamber of Deputies.
In late August 2012, Tropical Storm Isaac hit Haiti causing flooding and mudslides. At least four people were killed, including a ten-year-old girl who died when a wall collapsed in Thomazeau.
