Good News from Haiti! But…

I can’t tell you how thankful I am for all of your prayers.  Within the last hour, I have learned that Jamalyn’s team has been confirmed to be OK.  I understand no one from the States has actually spoken to them yet, but this comes from a trusted, reliable third party.  I praise God for this.

I also got word this afternoon that the Haitian boy being adopted by a Suncrest connected family has been confirmed OK also.

Sometimes the words of this song haunt me when I sing them because I’m guilty of them, “Many men will drink the rain, then turn and thank the clouds.”  Not here.  Not now.  I thank our God for his answers to our prayers.

Alongside this wonderful news for us is still very troubling news.  While word came that Jamalyn’s team is OK, it also seemed to indicate that 2 Haitians had died there.  Our moment of Joy is real.  So are the days, weeks, and years ahead of grief for so many there.  Please don’t stop praying now.
