We have received word that Nicole has had contact with her parents who strangly enough live in Parker SD where we go to church! She is safe and we are thanking God for answering that prayer!
As all of you have probably seen and heard a devestating earthquake has hit Haiti near the capital city of Port au Prince. Just one week ago Isaac and my dad were in this very area. I am struck by emotions of relief and sadness at the same time.
Relief that it didn't happen sooner but sadness that it had to happen at all. Please join me in praying for the Haitian people. Isaac is very concerned about the people that he met while he was there and is worried that some of them may be hurt.
Specifically remember Fritz, Patrick and Nicole. They haven't been able to contact them to see if they are safe due to difficulity with communications right now. So as we wait to hear we are lifting them up in prayer.
Lord, we don't understand why devastation of this magnitude has to occur. But we ask today Lord that you cover our Hatian friends in a blanket of safety. Help us as individuals, as a nation to know how to best help. We place Fritz, Nicole and Patrick in your hands and pray that we receive word soon of their well-being. Amen
