Please be in prayer...I just read that a terrible earthquake has been reported in Haiti - possible magnitude 7.0. The epicenter is said to be just west of Port au Prince. Two strong aftershocks followed, 5.9 and 5.5...I'm sure there will be more to come. These people are so very poor, they have so very little. But there is a piece of me there.

Years ago, my Sweet Hubby and I began sponsoring a little boy in Haiti. Our little Guithe. Our hearts melted when we saw this sweet, scared little face...how could they not? He was born into our hearts that very moment.

Just yesterday, I received this Happy New Year card and drawing from him. I melted...again.

As I do every time I get something with this postmark:

So, I am devastated by this news. And on my knees in prayer...Abba Father - please...

And now that you know someone in Haiti too...

I was wondering if you'd join me?

Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. Matthew 24:7 NIV

Oh, I pray he's safe! I pray for all the people there! We sponsor a young man in Uganda and I know how close they are in our hearts!

How old is he now? I know we talked about this yesterday, but it amazes me how Haiti never gets a break! And the Christians there are so many and so joyful. Christ is all they have.

I hope you hear soon that your "son" is safe!

Thank you, Nancy Grayce and Dawn...I would love to hear something soon, but with the amount of chaos down there, I don't hold out any hope of hearing something specific for months.

Dawn, Guithe turned 9 last month. I think he was 3 or 4 when we began sponsoring him...it's been a while since he joined our family!

Hey Gigi,

I just saw the news online too. I pray that Guithe and his family are okay. I pray that those who need assistance will get it, that above all, those who need Christ will get HIM.

Blessings to you,
