Hear Our Prayers

In response to A Prayer for Haiti, several women serving there emailed WOTH. Here are their comments:

*Thank you, a million times over. My heart is blessed with your prayer & I am passing it to other Sisters in the Lord in Haiti.

*Thank you sooo much. Spent 24 hours sewing, and binding wounds, we are out of supplies and now trying to coordinate efforts as well as survive. God is sooo good. Please pray that the aftershocks quit. They are running 4-5 on the richter and houses will continue to fall since they are damaged.

*Thank you so much, it means everything to have people lifting us field workers and the nationals, up in prayer. We believe also that God will be glorified and many will cry out to him for saving grace.

*Thanks so much for your prayers on our behalf. Our compound in northern Haiti felt the quake stronger than I would ever care to do again. Our property and staff in Port-au-Prince are ok. The wall surrounding the property there collasped. We are working to get relief help to people there. We have had so much rain people in the north are being flooded and put in refugee camps.

*It is pitch black and we have neighbors and students all over the campus. We are sleeping outside because the aftershocks are still going on and they really are frightening too. This was the most terrifying thing I’ve ever experienced. You know there has been a tremendous loss of life. The building [school] will probably have to come down completely. All the homes are standing but not sure of structural damage. There is lots of damage with broken glass, etc.

I was walking on the treadmill and once it started I was thrown back and held on for dear life all my bookcases and things in my work room came down. Pray for all of us in the days ahead to meet the needs all around us. We have many friends we have no idea if they are ok or not and have no way to get in touch with them.

Our prayers will continue...

STORY BEHIND THE PHOTO: Picture Praise, 1/18/10
"I was in Vietnam to visit and encourage some of our friends. As I watched this woman weaving, I thought about all of the relationships that God has interwoven into the tapestry of my life, from America, Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East. I am constantly amazed at His goodness."
Photographer: Marcy Bentley Lemasters, Thailand--"I've been serving in Asia since 2005, full-time since 2007. I am the co-founder & secretary of Le Masters Hope Foundation, a non-profit organization caring for the widow, orphan, and taking the Good News of the Gospel around the world."
