Please pray for the people of Haiti.
Pray the people who minister there.
Pray for the families adopting children from there.
Pray for the missing birth families.
Please just pray for the people of Haiti.

From Tara Livesay-
The sun is about to come up. The aftershocks continue. Some more noticeable than others. There is no way to even begin to share the things we’ve heard and seen since 5pm yesterday. To do so would take hours that we don’t have to give right now. Some of them feel wrong to tell. Like only God should know these personal horrible tragedies.

The few things we can confirm – yes the four story Caribbean Market building is completely demolished. Yes it was open. Yes the National Palace collapsed. Yes Gov’t buildings nearby the Palace collapsed. Yes St Josephs Boys home is completely collapsed. Yes countless countless - countless other houses, churches, hospitals, schools, and businesses have collapsed. There are buildings that suffered almost no damage. Right next door will be a pile of rubble.

Thousands of people are currently trapped. To guess at a number would be like guessing at raindrops in the ocean. Precious lives hang in the balance. When pulled from the rubble there is no place to take them for care Haiti has an almost non existent medical care system for her people.

I cannot imagine what the next few weeks and months will be like. I am afraid for everyone. Never in my life have I seen people stronger than Haitian people. But I am afraid for them. For us.

TexasHeather took my exact words.

At some points, my prayers turn towards their need for a Saviour. Some times, I'm totally sad for those who grieve.
I cannot imagine the chaos as people are found, but there is no medical aid nor food & water. So, then I pray for humanitarian efforts to be able to get into there.

I have a good friend who travels there frequently for business. Maybe he can give me some info as he finds out.

My heart & prayers go out to the Haitians.
