PLEASE PRAY FOR THE
FOLLOWING NEEDS IN HAITI : URGENT URGENT URGENT
EARTHQUAKE HIT PORT AU PRINCE, HAITI!
Dear Family and Friends,
We are writing this today with heavy hearts. Even though our hearts are heavy, our spirit and prayers are worshiping our Lord Jesus Christ because we know He is in control and He will never leave or forsake us.
We pray you are aware of the devastating 7.2 earthquake that his Haiti on January 11th, 2010, which has left Port-au-Prince, Haiti's capitol, in total ruin. There have been hundreds of people killed, children left orphaned and food and water that are in short supply.
In the past, we at Harvest Seed have asked for donations to help us supply the needs of the children and widows. With the urgency of our letter today, please help us with a donation so we can provide food, water, medical supplies, and necessities to the children, widows and the local community.
Back in September 2008 when the hurricanes hit Gonaives, Haiti, we had to evacuate our children down to Port-au-Prince which is where they have been living until the earthquake hit that area a few weeks ago. The children were relocated again back up to Gonaives to our pastor, Pastor Robert Compere's church, Love & Light Mission.
Our orphanage has been restored and the children moved back in the Mission House the beginning of February. We have also taken in an additional 12 children that were orphaned due to the earthquake and anticipate that we will take in more as the need arises. We currently have 22 children in our care.
Please continue to pray for our children and staff. They have been through some pretty difficult and emotional times. Thank you for your support.
