Prayer Request: Haiti

As you've probably heard already on the news...

Haiti experienced a 7.0 magnitude earthquake late yesterday afternoon, just a few miles outside the capital city of Port au Prince.

As I've seen firsthand from our trip this year, Haiti doesn't have the infrastructure or resources to deal with this catastrophe. My heart is absolutely broken for what I know my friends are experiencing right now.

Here's an update, from those of you who remember my posts about our trip this year on some of the missionaries we worked with:

We have heard that Dorothy Pearce, director of Faith Hope Love Infant Rescue is ok. We aren't certain of her orphanage and children and nannies yet.

Marie Prinvall, another orphanage and school director is also ok, as well as her compound and children. Praise the Lord!

We have NOT heard any news or been able to make contact with Sherrie Faussey, director of the school and orphanage in Port Au Prince. We have heard discouraging reports about the Delmas 31 area, which is where the school and orphanage are located.

I'll post again whenever we hear something more about Sherrie.

Some pictures of our trip this year...

"Good" housing on a "good" day...














Just some of the children at Sherrie's orphanage...














They don't get any sweeter than this...

































Again, "good" houses on a "good" day in Haiti...















Please pray.

This just breaks my heart. I keep praying they're all ok.

some good news though is that on dorothy's facebook page someone posted that her house and children are ok but theyre not sure if dorothy and the people she was with got home or not.

We are lifting the people and children up in Haiti... I hear your heart and hope for some good news soon about the children and friends in Haiti.. as well as prayers for Jim and Debbie as their hearts must also be heavy with this news.

It is so heartbreaking thinking about the whole situation, especially all those children. We're praying.

Please pray also for staff and children at His Home for Children. We have three families in our church adopting children from there and they are out of the orphanage right now because of damage...the security wall is also parially down, which is very dangerous for them.. All children are okay though, praise God!
