Prayer of Thankfulness and Preparation

Soverign Lord, I praise you for your supremacy. All authority is yours. You are the rightful ruler of all. Thank you for prompting your church to help the poor and needy in so many ways. Thank you for those who have offered encouragement in the form of words, prayers, gifts, and service during this time of preparation. I pray that this tool might be a source of blessing for those whose heart is broken for our brothers and sisters in Haiti. According to your word, I pray for the Hatian people: answer them in their distress; protect them with your name; send help; grant support; help them rise up and stand firm; fill them with joy and peace as they trust in you; help them overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit; fill them with the knowledge of your will through all wisdom and understanding, endurance and patience. May your cause prosper among the nations so that in everything you might be glorified in Christ Jesus. Amen.

A DPC (displaced persons camp)

There are many of these camps all over Haiti. My translator, Marcus, is a 22year old university student. Now the university is not functioning and his family is living in a camp. He described the camp to me and told me about his dreams for the future. He is from a poor family but they did have a house before the earthquake. The people in the camp put their money together and buy food and share it. They meet to pray each morning. They shower by dumping water on their heads.


  1. Hi there Robin! So glad you made it! Sorry to hear you had to sleep on the porch but hopefully it was a nice peaceful night. Sounds like you have a very nice translator. Know you are all doing a wonderful job over there! Will keep you all in our prayers here. Sleep good tonight! Love you, Robin! We all miss you, too! Love, Susie (& John, Bryan, Kimberly & the "girls" (dogs).

  2. It truly is amazing to hear how others are working to survive together.

  3. As I drifted off last night, I thought about you sleeping there in a strange place after a very long day of travel. I admire your selflessness and passion to help others in need. You are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. Am looking forward to hearing about church there tomorrow.
