Naturally, everyone is aware of the earthquake in Haiti. If you’d like to read a few blogs on the current situation through the eyes of people who live there or are planning a mission trip there please feel free to visit, read, pray, and possibly donate to these sites.

This is a blog that our pastor is following:  http://livesayhaiti.blogspot.com/

The following two sites are from a college friend who has been planning a mission trip to Haiti since before the disaster.

This following site is a friend of a friend so Jon and I don’t know her directly, but she and her husband (newlywed!) recently moved to Port-au-Prince on DECEMBER 29th, 2009.

Here is part of their inspiring bio:

Friends,

We are moving to Haiti! After today we’ve shared our news with both employers, so at long last we’re  ready to share with everyone!

So here’s the story – Ben and I are moving to Port-au-Prince, Haiti on December 29, 2009.

Why?
Jesus said, “God’s spirit is on me; he’s chosen me to preach the Message of good news to the poor,
Sent me to announce pardon to prisoners and recovery of sight to the blind,
To set the burdened and battered free, To announce, ‘This is God’s year to act’.”
– Luke 4

Jesus said these words in his hometown to announce the beginning of his ministry. It’s become our theme verse too as we prepare for Haiti. As Jesus-followers, we just want to imitate Him. Love like He loved. Meet needs like He did. We’ve been hearing a specific call to serve overseas for some months and have been praying about it ever since.
