the day after, but the work is just beginning...

The earthquake took people's homes, families, and affected everyone. Last night short after the quake a woman was carried in on a bed from down the street and brought to the clinic. She was an older woman who died later that night... she has many more broken bones and internal injuries from her house falling on her.

Some pics from the improvised outdoor clinic in the yard today:

Thank God for the clinic here. For Lori and her staff in the clinic whom not only do their work in times of crisis, but every day of their lives. And for Licia- the kids and all of us evacuated to outside last night for safety and are tonight as well. Many of the walls have cracked in both the clinic and the Rescue Center and things were a mess last night. Aftershocks are still occurring now and then, we are all going to try to get some sleep tonight. Many of the staff have lost their homes and some family members were in Port. Many people all over Haiti are unaccounted for and the stories we hear of Port are horrid. People are dead and dying all over the streets and it is not pretty. A couple of the patients who came today had come from Port- it'll be a long time until this country even begins to recover. Please keep Haiti in your prayers- thats the best thing we can do right now.

"But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you."
Psalm 39:7


  1. Wow- I wish we were there to help and to give all the kids some extra hugs! We wanted to let you know that there are so many people from our church praying for you guys!

  2. My heart and thoughts are with people of Haiti. I am a journalist and if any of the survivor wants to narrate his or her experience of the earthquake pls contact me-

  3. Anna -

    Thank you for being such a support to Zach, Lori and Licia and the children.

    I pray you are okay, I can't think of anyone better to be there helping.

    PEACE to you. I am sending e-mails to everyone I know to send money to Real Hope For Haiti.
