Subject: Haiti Earthquake

Greetings in Christ's name,

I just wanted to let all of you know that our team is ok. As many of you know, the largest earthquake to hit Haiti in 200 years hit this evening about 10 miles from Port au Prince and you can read the details online at the news sites. As of right now, the airport is closed in Port, but we are all safe in Les Cayes, which is about six hours away. (Haitian speeds) We will have to play it by ear as pretty much all communication is out from here to Port. You probably know more than we do.

I just want you to know that God has been watching over us and we have had many miracles. Even today, there were several times when we felt his hand guiding and keeping us from harm. We started this morning around 8 am and had a rather uneventful trip on a road that been very eventful. We arrived in Les Cayes at 6 pm after traveling around 70 miles. We had a fair amount of rain and had to cross moving water that could have swept us away, but a Haitian was there at just the right time to tell us where to go over the bridge to miss the holes. This is just one of several examples of how the Lord has watched over us.

Please keep praying for our safety. When we get out is in the Lord's hands. Pray for the Haitians and the destruction that will be present. We are still feeling aftershocks here regularly. I look forward to getting home and seeing all of you.

God Bless you and keep you until we meet again. Feel free to forward this on to anyone you think may need to know. My time is short in writing this. I will try to stay in touch via email.


In Christ,
Tim
