Pray for Haiti

The news from Haiti is staggering, almost unbelievable. As you probably know, a devastating 7.0 earthquake hit concrete-house laden Port-au-Prince yesterday and estimates range between 100,000 and half a million dead- unfathomable numbers.

I grew up hearing quite a bit about Haiti as one of my best friends is Haitian and his father, the son of a political refugee from Haiti, was my soccer coach and elder at the Bible Presbyterian church I was discipled at during my teen years.

I've not been to Haiti, but I feel like I know the place through my friend nevertheless.

Let us join in praying for Haiti, her people, and Christ's Church there.

Having come from my last church Christ Presbyterian(PCUSA) where we sponsored the local Haitian Fellowship Group, my thoughts and prayers have been with those devastated by this earthquake.

I can’t imagine that pain and suffering? We know He is sovereign and in spite of what we see, think or feel, His Hands control all things, even disasters. It is encouraging to know for years hundreds of missionaries have been spreading the Good News throughout Haiti. It is heartwarming to see how many countries have already began relief efforts. By faith, I know He will bring good from this horrible mess.
