Haiti

WAYS TO HELP:
From Switchfoot's Twitter:   Oxfam is on the ground  after 7.0 earthquake. You can help-please donate

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. 

-Largest earthquake to hit Haiti since 1770.  13 aftershocks 7 of those above 5.0
-President Obama asking all to pray and says the US Government will reach out with immediate assistance.  Lots of families in the United States are trying desperately to see if their loved ones in Haiti are safe.  The toll-free number to find out more or to report of Americans you know who are in Haiti:  888-407-4747 for the US State Department.

Lisa, I spent 10 days on a Mission trip in Haiti back in 1988.  It was life changing for me, and I've never been able to make it back, but I have a huge heart for these people.  One of the members of my team came back from that first trip, sold his house and he and his wife spent 20 years in full-time mission work there and just retired last summer.  Lifeline Christian Mission is who I went through and they still have a ministry there.  The link below is an update directly from one of the ladies I know who is there.  Please check it out.  I just can't imagine.  I know you said you have a friend there too, we ARE praying Blessings from Brownsburg, Indiana.

Since everyone spends so much time on their cell phones, there is a way to give from your cell phone. Text "HAITI" to 90999 to donate $10 to Red Cross relief efforts in Haiti. Prayers and thoughts to the Haitian people.

I did it myself. I saw it on facebook. This is a real site. Check it out at mGive.com/a.

My family, like many, have close ties to Haiti. My parents lived there for 8 years and my older brothers were born there. My Grandpa and Dad work for a company called Christain World Outreach. They do lots of work in Haiti and some in Africa. They have a feminine training center down that that allows women to become educated so they can have jobs and make a living. Many of the people that work for my Dad's company live in Haiti and are Haitian. They are suffering. My Dad heard from one of them but doesn't know how the other people are. Just keep praying. God is good and although I don't understand what he is doing he has a great plan. Thanks again for all the prayers.

Good morning.
we are not allowed to listen to the radio at work, but every morning on my way to work I listen to you guys. It touched my heart to hear you mention Haiti this morning. My uncle lives in his Haiti with his 4 kids and wife, and since all phone lines are out we don't know if he's ok or not. yesterday as the earthquate was happening a friend of mine said her uncle called to say the house he was in just collasped, then communication got cut off. we don't know if he's the only person who got out, or if his wife and their baby are ok.
Please pray for my mom so that she can be strong. My uncle is the only brother she has left. her youngest brother got carried away in a hurricane when I was just a kid back in Haiti, and his body was found 3 days later near the cemetary.
God bless you all

I just got to work and I turned on KLOVE, because I knew that you would be talking about Haiti. Then you read the letter from Cindy McMartin and I know her! I am best friends with her youngest daugther, Michelle. I visited Bruce and Cindy in Haiti in Dec 2005. I found out last night that they were safe, thank God. Please continue to pray for them. The city is just in shambles and as their moving letter describes they desperately need some hope in the midst of the devestation. Thank you for sharing their letter.

I adopted 4 children from Haiti 3 years ago,  I just wanted everyone to know that the children at Haiti children's rescue mission are safe.  I don't know how damaged the orphanage is but the children and the paster are all safe.  They slept outside last night.  Please pray for the children of Haiti,  There are many orphans and I fear there may be many more after this devastating earthquake.

My wife and I were just in Haiti in November with a team of about 10 fixing roofs on our churches schools. It is defintley heart wrenching to see and hear what has happened. We met so many amazing people while we were there visiting churches along with fixing roofs. My heart and prayers go out to all of Haiti!

I would like to challenge each person who reads this to reach out to friends via email and facebook/twitter/myspace etc to challenge others to donate to a relief organization for Haiti.  I know personally my donation isn't big, but if i can get at least 10 others to donate also, what a difference that can make!
God bless you all,

Please God be with all those searching  for the 'Why & How Could', show them your amazing love, fill them with the courage to keep moving forward, But, most of all God be the friend they need to listen to there hurting hearts, the shoulder to lean on..Please God use those friends that have given themselves to spreading your word in Haiti, give them the words to  share, the vision to see the path you have for the hurting souls in Haiti, so that they may help guide them to the path of your wondrous love, mercy, strength, encouragement, and that never ending Love of our Protector, Friend, Father.
God, I Pray that the all the friends of yours remember that you are not a God of suffering, But, a God of Unconditional LOVE. That you are with them holding out your hands to them, hoping to carry them. I ask this all in the name of Jesus Christ... AMEN
God be with all the suffering.

Good Morning KLove family:
My heart is saddened by the tragedy in Haiti.  We have friends who are in the process of adopting 4 children from there.  Mark and Kim have received information that their kids are okay, as well as the mission they are a part of.  However, they are still feeling the aftershocks.  Please pray for Grace Children Home (Lashbrook Family Ministries) in Port de Paix, Haiti along with Wally, Rose, Lily & Steve, that they remain safe.  Please also pray for Mark & Kim as this adoption process has been ongoing for 4 years. They are great Christian people who just want to bring their children home and I pray that they don't have to start the adoption process over again because of this.  I know God is in control as well as the awesome power of prayer.  
Thank you for partnering with me in this!

My heart is broken for all those in Haiti. I have been there on two missions trips and can't wait to go back; it is truly an amazing place for many reasons and has a special place in my heart. They have so little already, I can't imagine what it's like now. I'm praying for everyone and know God is in control and can use this for His glory. Thank you so much for keeping us updated.
God Bless,
