Your Prayers Are Needed!

For the people of Haiti.

Haiti is the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. This is surprising considering the natural beauty of the island of Hispaniola it shares with the Dominican Republic.  A series of dictators and 2 centuries of bad government brought this nation to this state of poverty.

Add to that the fact that the island of Hispaniola is directly in the path of Hurricanes entering the Caribbean Sea, yesterday's 7.0 Earthquake was rubbing salt into the wounds.

If you want to help you can donate via the American Red Cross here.  You can text “HAITI” to 90999 to donate $10 to American Red Cross relief for Haiti.

It is widely known through out the world that Americans are the most generous people in the world.  This disaster is in our own backyard, not thousands of miles away.  Open up your wallets for these our neighbors.

And keep them in your prayers, the authorities believe that the death toll will climb into the tens of thousands.

It's a terrible situation. But lucky for them the United States is a very giving country. We have aid and assistance there already and much more on the way.

I fear we haven't heard the worse. It looks like the world is rallying to do the best they can. The U.S. is leading the way, and yes, prayers are desperately needed.
