Haiti Earthquake - Red Cross

Recommended Posts

Ladies -

 

Please be in prayer for the people in Haiti and the rescue efforts.

 

One way to donate financially and immediately is to donate $10 to the American Red Cross by texting Haiti to 90999. The $10 charge will appear on your phone bill.

 

Here is a link with details: http://www.redcross.org/portal/site/en/menuitem.94aae335470e233f6cf911df43181aa0/?vgnextoid=15c0c5a210826210VgnVCM10000089f0870aRCRD

 

Thank you,

 

Carla

Many still trapped a day after Haiti quake

The first cargo planes with aid arrive in Haiti, while many of its citizens remain in peril. Thousands feared dead

Father God we pray right now in the name of Jesus.

Come Lord Jesus, come.

Holy Spirit come.

In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior Amen.

A start could be made in teaching these people how to build properly. When the presidential palace collapses like a house of cards, it says a lot for the rest.

Interestingly enough i was just thinking about architectural differences of the East Coast of USA verses the West Coast this morning in light of this Earthquake. As Pennsylvanians we are used to old 3, 4 and 5 story houses and it has been difficult to adjust to the look of the houses here that are no more than 2 stories high. My husband and I have often complained about how they have built "out" instead of "up". In light of this quake I was thinking this morning how they must have done this because earthquakes as we know are more common on the West Coast.

It is my understanding however that Haiti has not suffered an earthquake in 200 years (I could be wrong, that is just hearsay) so perhaps that would explain no thought being given to a building surviving a quake in their building structure.

Not to mention the poverty level of this nation and lack of education!

They are in our prayers. And I also know there must be missionaries there too that need our prayers.

There are many different organizations to give your help financially, all good I am sure, but I just wanted to spread the word that the Mennonite Central Committee was one of the first ones to be there with help responding to the earthquake that struck Haiti. If interested in helping through them please visit http://www.mcc.org.
