JoinHaiti on my mind and Haiti on my heart.
As Hurricane Isaac twists towards Haiti, this resilient nation once again faces impending disaster. I met the people. I fell in love. I partnered with them for a week. I committed to pray for them for a lifetime, if nothing else.
My heart aches for these people. For little Kristine and our translator, Kinsley. For Elizabeth and Chelsea and Mission of Hope.
For the woman in Zorange, barely older than me, but victim to man's lust and mother of a beautiful baby girl. For the old pastor in the village, stooped in posture but proud in spirit.
For Gilbert and his young wife and the people of Titanyen, the village that means "least of the least."
How do we stop a disaster? I cannot stand in front of this hurricane and bear its weight. I can't change the winds or calm the waves. But I know the One who can. I join Haiti and those who love this country in prayer. For a better day. For change. And for protection.
God has great plans for this country. May my prayers be a ripple in the tide of change. Will you join with me in prayer for these beautiful people?
