Please Pray for Haiti and Our Sponsored Child
We've sponsored a child in Haiti through Compassion International for almost 4 years. His name is Kensly Pierre and his 12th birthday is tomorrow. An email we received today read as followed.
"The catastrophic earthquake that hit Haiti yesterday has resulted in unfathomable chaos and devastation for hundreds of thousands of children and families.
Compassion sponsors and donors serve more than 65,000 children in Haiti. At least a third of them live in the areas that were hardest hit.
Be assured that we are working to locate your child and determine his specific situation as quickly as possible. We will share this personal update with you as soon as we have that information."
Please pray for:
1) The rescue and recovery efforts (protection & guidance).
2) The people as they recovery from this devastation (comfort & healing).
3) That even through this tragedy God will be glorified and that many hearts will turn to Jesus.
