Haiti Earthquake Captures World's Attention

After many calls, many conversations, and interviews it is apparent that people are interested in the status of the situation in Haiti.

Like many in the World I have tried to glean as much new information from the International News Media, as well as, from my many contacts in and out of Haiti. CNN has done a good job of giving as much information as you could possibly hope for, in a country that for decades has been devoid of international coverage.

We are able at this point to have regular cell contact still with some difficulties, but at least it doesn't take a 50-100 tries to get through. In Gonaives, Luc and my friend Maula have told me that the flow of people from the south appears to be a steady stream of injured and destitute people. Many will be Village people who had gone to Port au Prince over the years in hope of finding a better life, for themselves and their family. Now it appears that hope is gone. Shattered by an earthquake that has brought the city of over 2 million to their knees, and destroyed their homes.

Scripture teaches us to always be ready to give the reason for our Hope, Jesus.

Pray that the only Hope for Haiti, will be brought to light through this disaster.
