My Heart is in Haiti

This morning my thoughts and prayers are for the people of Haiti.

I've been there.

I've lived there.

I suppose it is like hearing your hometown was leveled. I'm familiar with it. Friends still live there.

Are any of the victims the children that used to hang on my arms? The ones with smiles and laughter despite their living conditions? Do they have their own children now?

Are the people I bartered and joked with now pleading for help?

And so I pray. Will you pray for the people of Haiti today?

"But Jesus looked at them and said, 'With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.'" Mark 10:27

This picture is of the Haitian flag with tears or blood flowing through it. Both are flowing in Haiti right now.

I don't pray. But we donated to the Red Cross disaster relief fund last night.

Thank you, Marie and Holly!

While I'm thinking of it, these are some well-known organizations that have set up relief for the victims of the quake:

Caritas Internationalis: A Confederation of 162 National Catholic Charity Organizations


Doctors Without Borders:


International Red Cross:

I have been praying for them since I heard last night. What devastation. In a country already mostly devastated.
