Pray for my friends in Haiti

Map locating the epicentre of a 7.0-magnitude quake that hit ...One of the things that happens in this ministry life is that you end up knowing people literally around the world because of many missions connections.  Whenever something big happens in the world, there is almost always a face that comes to mind of someone I know there.

So when the news of a devastating earthquake in Haiti came…my mind went two different directions:

-Our children’s ministry supports  some children there at a great school outside of Port-au-Prince.  There are lots of suncrest connections with this including a wonderful young woman who now lives here after being adopted into a suncrest family.

-I have a friend who lived in Haiti for some time and now leads mission trips back there regularly.  I was sure he would know people there personally.

As the evening developed, I learned that my friend’s wife is actually leading a trip in Haiti right now.  Could not believe it.  He has yet to hear from her tonight, though he says it is quite reasonable to assume she is OK and just unable to communicate since they are in a town 20 miles from Port-us-Prince.   That’s where my prayers are centered right now (Jamalyn and her team) while I’m thankful some other colleagues who were on trips there (Bill Hauser and Mike Baker) have been able to make contact and are OK.

Please stop to pray with me.
