"7.0 earthquake hits Port au Prince Haiti"
On January 12, 2010 at 4:53pm a 7.0 earthquake it Port au prince Haiti it lasted about 30 to 45 seconds but in that time over 200,000 people lost their lives. I was eating dinner with our new pastor and my friend’s mom posted on Facebook that an earthquake had just hit port au prince. I got up from the table and started googling all I found was “7.0 earthquake hits port au prince” I had no idea if the missionaries we stayed with were okay or if anything was okay. So we kind of brushed it off like it can’t be too bad 30 seconds what could happen in that time. It just got worse from there, I remember that Sunday Mrs. Tracey crying and I so naively asked why and my mom said “That earthquake in Haiti for her is like an earthquake hitting our town for you”. Then I got it that weekend the Herrera’s left a long with their son Tony Jr. (Ti-Tony). They were gone for at least a month and that whole time I just wanted to be there with them helping just doing whatever I could do, which was basically nothing cause all they needed at that point was Medical attention. I still just felt the urge to be there to help anything. Haiti will never recover from that earthquake, they will move on but they will never recover. Because of that earthquake an estimated 350,000 NEW orphans are in Haiti 350,000 kids without parents if you can just think about that for a moment then you will understand why I want to go there. Right now all I ask for is prayer, prayer for the Herrera’s , prayer for ALL the orphans, prayer for all the missionaries already down there, and I finally ask prayer for me and that everything will just come together smoothly and the same even more so for the Herrera’s. All I need right now is prayer, for the people who can give money give prayer most of the time prayer is more needed then the finance. So just pray and keep up with the Herrera (theherrerasinhaiti.blogspot.org) and I’s blogs (compelled2care.blogspot.com) and with Harvest through their website (harvestinternational.org). God Bless =)
