On January 12, 2010, thousands of lives were lost, buildings destroyed and many injured and in desperate need of aid after a 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit the small nation of Haiti. I want to encourage you to both pray and send your support to help those affected. This news is very close to my heart as a Haitian American, as I have several family members there and I know many others feeling helpless and trying to make sense out of confusion. Let’s continue pray for peace in the hearts that are hurting and put action and love behind our faith.
