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.

One More Wednesday Story

There are 3 teenage girls who volunteer at the clinic. They hand out baby food and formula and children's vitamins to those who need them and organize supplies. They are given lunch for working. Today there were some tortillas missing and the pastor searched her backpack and they were there. He also found some soap and deodorant that she took from the clinic. We think she is not going to be allowed to work anymore. We have cell phones and cameras with us but she only thought of taking food.

IT is very sad to see how desperate the people are. And at the same time how generous they are to share with one another.


  1. Robin,

    This is Thursday morning and I want you to know how much I appreciate your pictures and stories, as I cannot imagine how tired you must be by the end of the day.

    I know you are a blessing to those you are caring for, and I am praying for you and the others in your group today.

    Love, Dotty

  2. Wow, Robin - what an experience you're having in Haiti. You put it all into words and pictures so eloquently that we feel like we are right there with you. You've definitely touched MANY lives with all your prayers and support! We pray for a safe return for you & the others.

  3. Oh, that I could just give her a package of tortillas and soap and deodorant...
