Rendi…I am sending this to my prayer book and some of our warriors will get this twice…please send it out. The situation is dire. Blessings, Robbie
The earthquake that has hit Haiti, hit within 14 miles of Dr Dan and Dee Dee's house and right in the middle of Dan's hospital.
If you have not heard, it was a 7.0, with a 5.9 aftershock, and then a 5.5 additional earthquake. There have now been reported 12 more aftershocks since the original earthquake. We are not able to reach Dan in this hour but do know from Dee Dee's Mother that they are in Port as is their son James who has not yet left for college. In addition, of course, are our Pastor Charite Noel's family home in Port… where his wife Fe Fe and children who are still at home were present… while likely Pastor was in Dessalines… and finds himself unable to get to his family. We have not been able to reach him in this hour as well.
The reports are very dire. Homes falling as the mountainside literally collapses. One hospital is known to have collapsed. The pictures on CNN of the President's palace in Port is horribly collapsed into itself. This is an hour of great need for prayer. All flights into Port are canceled. Military transport aide is going in tomorrow morning. Razor wire is all over the street and the people are walking in the dark. This is a city made to house 50,000 and holds 2 million people. There is never a time when people are not living by the hundreds of thousands in the streets. Imagine what that means in this devastation. It became dark almost immediately after the earthquake. There is no appropriate infrastructure for such emergency in Haiti.
Please pray for the mercy and grace of our Lord over all the people and for the safety of our dear friends. This will be an especially difficult time for Dr. Dan of course…as he will want to help everybody. Water and food will be very limited and people will be desperate. Let's agree with the Word of the Lord and pray as the Holy Spirit leads us as we stand for our brothers and sisters in Haiti.
