earthquake in Haiti

The photo above is from one of my trips to Haiti. A very emotional evening. A little time with some friends which was a good thing while I waited for more news. Then more time trying to find out how my Haitian partners and buds are. Things aren’t looking good. Our long term HAPI volunteer Lee Rainboth was building a new home of cement and its destroyed so what about those who didn’t have such a good foundation? Or those who were in collapsing buildings or by tall cement walls? Lord – be there for their peace and strength. Be here to guide us on how best to help. Spare your people Lord. PLEASE……

Landslides I’m sure, crumbled buildings everywhere and no funds to rebuild or repair. Lives are lost too early. How can we help? Some of our previous medical volunteers are ready to go and set up a first aid area and help in anyway they can. With the roads ruined, travel for commerce and provisions will be tough for a long time again. Food, medical, and prayers seem to be the first areas we can help.

PRAYER – a quote used the other day “Prayer does not equip us for greater works— prayer is the greater work.” Oswald Chambers. DONATIONS another. HaitianArtisans.com More info to be posted as we get it. Now to update our website with donate button for earthquakes….I don’t like the sound of that.

One thought on “earthquake in Haiti

  1. Linda Aronson says:

    My first thought is “poor Haiti”. Do their troubles ever stop? Hurricanes, homelessness, starvation, malnutrition, poverty, lack of education, and most importantly, a desperate need for God…and now piled on top of all that is a huge earthquake. Indeed POOR Haiti, in every way possible. I’m hoping people all across America and the world will step up and help–first and foremost with prayer followed by action/aid.
