Haiti is on my heart...

This image is from my first trip to Haiti in 2004. It reminds of the wonderful people, and the beauty of the country that the world is rarely shown.

I am thankful to God that my family members who were caught in the Haiti earthquake are whole, and that we can help them regain what was lost. I am tearful for those who have lost lives, are trapped, and in need of support. As we know from daily reports, the disaster continues. There are many who survived the earthquake, but still cling to life. Relief is needed.

I urge you to donate to relief agencies, specifically those that had a direct presence in Haiti before the disaster. I am attaching links to two such organizations.

Friends of the Orphans
Doctors Without Borders
