Just a quick update on the earthquake in Haiti.  First of all, thank you to everyone who inquired about friends living there.  We have heard that everyone in Ouanaminthe, which is 9 hours from Port-au-Prince, is fine.  The missionaries at Danita's Children were able to contact Pastor Alteese and he, his children, and staff members are fine.  However, many of those living in Ouanaminthe have friends and family in the capitol.  Pastor Daniel has a brother-in-law who went there to purchase books for the school; Pastor Alteese, whose wife passed away about eight months ago, has a son living there.  They have not heard from their loved ones and pray for the best.  It seems no one in Haiti is untouched by this catastrophe. 

Despite this grim situation, a little light shines.  The world has once again come together during a time of tragedy.  To quote my church's motto, "Love Wins."
