Prayer needed

I was getting ready this morning and thought about not putting up the post below and just writing this but then I thought, no God IS working and I need to post that, but I also am asking you to get on your knees today and to pray. I believe that our great might God IS AND WILL BE working through this as well.

The country of Haiti was hit with a horrible earthquake yesterday afternoon. I am not sure if you have seen anything about it on the news but it's awful. For those of you who don't know, I started going to Haiti in college and moved there for 4 years when I graduated. It's been almost 8 years since I've lived there and 2 since I've been back but it's home for me.

Many of my dear friends have reported that they are ok, but Haiti is not ok. The damage is horrific. The loss of life is overhwelming. I know it's hard to imagine a if you've never been there, but there really is little to no infrastructure and no red cross to come to anyone's aid. There really is no medical structure to help the sick or a way to get to the trapped. Like I said, I know that for most of you, it's a place far away, but just know that today there are people in utter devestation with little to no hope. BUT our God is good and I believe that He will work through this tragedy and be glorified. Please join me in praying.
Thank you friends,


  1. Shan-
    It is so hard to imagine what the people of Haiti are experiencing right now. I am praying for as many people as possible to be rescued, for aid to get there, for comfort to those who lost loved ones, for your friends there, and for you. I know Haiti is close to your heart. Like you said, God will work in this tragedy.

  2. I have been thinking of you all day as more information has been given. I am thankful that you have been able to confirm information on your loved ones there. I am praying!
