I’ve posted a letter from some friends of ours below, please read their story and help if you can.
“Dear Friends, As all of you know Haiti is very close to mine and Jason’s hearts. Not only is our daughter there, but we have also grown to love and respect the Haitian people. There are no words to describe the hurt and anguish the people of Haiti are going through right now. The destruction to Haiti is massive. And Haiti on it’s own, has no way of recovering. Jason and I are asking for your help. Please pray. On your knees pray. Naomi and the other children at the orphanage are safe and being well taken care of. But you cannot take away the chaos that is all around them. You have seen the horrible conditions in which the people are fighting for their lives in. Please, these children and thousands more are among this. Pray for them. Pray for the people of Haiti. We are also asking you to give. Our sweet Naomi’s home was destroyed by the earthquake. Maranatha Orphanage is a part of Heartline Ministries. Heartline is an amazing ministry that provides much needed help to the Haitian people. Several other buildings of Heartline were also severely damaged. Heartline needs your support. They need your prayers and they need your donations to rebuild. Right now they are facing a shortage of food for the children, shortage of fuel for the generators and vehicles, and they need medical supplies and water. Please go to their website and help them. There is a donate button that will get your money directly to the earthquake relief. Please give as you feel led. Even ten dollars can help in a huge way. Take the time to read the blog and see the devastation from someone who is living in it. Go here to donate: http://heartlineministries.org/default.aspxAlso there is a great need for medical teams. Haiti is in no way equipped to care for all the injured and dying. Whether you are a nurse, doctor, fireman, etc. Haiti needs your help. Please if this is something you would consider doing let Jason ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) or me ( email@example.com ) know. These are urgent needs. Please let us know if we can give you anymore information. Troy and Tara Livesay are missionaries in Haiti. They are updating their blog as they get internet. Please check their blog for any more needs that need to be met. livesayhaiti.blogspot.com Jason is keeping our blog updated with needs and information also. Anything we hear in regards to Naomi and the other children are being updated. ( four2six.wordpress.com ) If you have a twitter account, Jason is tweeting info as he receives it. Also, Troy Livesay is tweeting when he is able. Help us get the word out. Send this email to as many people as you can and let’s help Haiti. Thanks to you all”, Jason and Sarah Hyatt
