Pray for Haiti

Haiti experienced a major Earthquake just about one hour ago and we are reaching out to our network of supporters and asking for your prayers. The earthquake's epicenter struck about 10 miles southwest of the capital, Port-au-Prince. It registered at a 7.0 and has already caused major structural damage in the surrounding area. Pray for the Haitian people who have lost their homes, are seeking their loved ones, and are fearing the effects of a possible Tsunami.

We have been attempting to reach our Haitian staff by cell phone, most of whom are located 40 miles southwest of Port-au-Prince, and have not been able to connect yet. Please continue to pray and check back for updates on the situation in Haiti and on the Plant With Purpose staff in the surrounding areas. We have a praise that we received an email from a staff member in the Dominican Republic who said that they are fine there.

Please pray specifically for our in-country staff: that their families would be protected and that they would have the ability to reach out in their communities to provide the necessary relief and shelter to their neighbors.
