To help you pray, please read this field report from Cindy McMartin and Phyllis Schmid at Bolosse in Port-au-Prince with Missonary Flights (missionaryflights.org): "This is Cindy and Phyllis writing to let you know that we are all safe here at Bolosse. We were hit hard, though. The Bible School building collapsed all over the attic and the office floors. Students were in classes. Bruce, David and a bunch of students are still working trying to get the last two students out; haven’t heard noises from them recently so we’re not sure they’re alive. We don’t have the equipment for this. We’ve heard horrible rumors of the damage around the city. Students are all up here sitting around on the lawns, will probably sleep here tonight all of us outside. I’m typing this without my glasses so can’t see to find periods and hyphens, etc. Just wanted to let someone know out there that we’re alive so that if you get calls you can respond. We’ll try to email family now, too. Telephones are out of course, we've turned off water, gas, electric, etc. It was a terrifying experience and I know there are many dead outside and around.
