As the Haitian people try and recover from a magnitude 7.0 earthquake that flattened many buildings and homes on January 12, Baptists are gearing up for service in a what appears to be a desparate situation.
Ten's of thousands have perished, and as aid only trickles in, many more are suffing beyond what we in America can only imagine.
Some ministries are on hold until they can safely enter the country to begin their service, others have had to pull back until logistical issues are resolved. But one thing is certain; the Haitian people will need our prayers, donations and service for many months and possibly years to come.
When life seems impossible, that's when God can do great things through His people. Psalm 46:1-3 says " God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear,
Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah"
