In case you have not seen the news of the earthquake in Haiti today, we wanted to let you know that Haiti experienced another major earthquake this morning at 8:30 AM. It was registered as a 7.2 magnitude, the earthquake that hit Haiti in January of 2010 was a 7.0 magnitude and 100's of thousands died. They have reported 29 deaths so far today. The earthquake was in the southwest part of the Island, mostly in Les Cayes, Jeremie and Jacmel. The earthquake was felt strongly in our villages, but we have no reported destruction or injuries. They just removed the Tsunami warnings. But now there is a warning for a Tropical storm, Haiti just cannot seem to get a break.
Please pray for Haiti, they have had to endure so much trauma. There is so much fear when you are oppressed as a people, and things so far out of your control keep happening that affect you and your family. Only God can remove those fears, only He can be our secure place, only He can give lasting peace and hope to us regardless of the surrounding circumstances. In Romans 15:13 God promises "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Hoy Spirit you may abound in hope". We need to keep coming along side of the people of Haiti. In Psalms 40:1-3 God says "I waited patiently for God to help me; then He listened and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out from the bog and the mire, and set my feet on a hard, firm path and steadied me as I walked along. He has given me a new song to sing, of praises to our God. Now many will hear of the glorious things He did for me, and stand in awe before the Lord, and put their trust in Him".
Believing for the people of Haiti. Thank you for coming along side the Haitian people with us.
