A Need For Prayers & Help

7.0 maganitude diaster hits Haiti, hundreds of thousands of people feared dead in Haiti after a major earthquake hit the impoverished Caribbean nation.Thousands are trapped under rubble from the quake, bodies lay dead on their streets.

The first cargo planes with food, water, medical supplies, shelter and sniffer dogs headed to the Western Hemispheres poorest nation a day after the quake flattened much of the capital of 2 million people.

The quake brought down buildings great and small, hospitals, schools and the main prisons collapsed. Haiti's leaders struggled to comprehend the extent of the catastrophe, the worst earthquake to hit the country in 200 year.

I could go on and on about this disaster but I am sure we all are hearing it on TV. Let us pray for this nation in its darkest hour, God bless them and help them in their sorrow, no one can imagine their grief.

Mom, thanks for posting about Haiti. I searched Google and found some news stories on the earthquake. One Associated Press article began with, "The tiny bodies of children lay in piles next to the ruins of their collapsed school...."

Horrible. I started Tweeting about it. In fact, speaking of Twitter, I found this article, "Want to Help Haiti Fast? Many Send Donations Via Text" --

"The first tweet came through just two hours after a massive earthquake devastated Haiti's capital early Tuesday evening: "Please text 'Yele' to 501501 to donate $5 to YELE HAITI. Your money will help with relief efforts. They need our help." Sent from the Twitter account of Haitian born musician Wyclef Jean, the text message went out to the singer's nearly 1.4 million followers and kicked off what has quickly become the largest text-based fundraising campaign for disaster relief in history."

Everything is urgent, said the AP, so please pray for these people and help in any way you can.

Amen.

This is really a well laid out website. I like how you have presented the information in full detail. Keep up the great work and please stop by at my site sometime. Keep it up..

Studies using nitrile exam gloves have shown that they also greatly reduce irritations as well as infections.
They are very comfortable to wear and can actually be worn for extended periods of time.

My prayers are with the people of this diaster and all those helping both out is front and those quietly with their prayers.

I just can't imagine the devistation and the loss for this impoverished country.
Continued prayers will be going out to them.
There is so much help coming now that the airplanes can't land because of all the planes already at the small airport. They are circling above and running out of fuel.

Margaret, I am sure I cannot even begin to comprehend the devastation that has hit these people. Thankfully, God sees their need and hears their cries. I have appreciated your visits to our blog and I have seen your vintage cards that you shared. I enjoyed them very much. Twyla

I've been so happy that so many of our blogger families are contributing to helping the Haitians in their time of need. I've been watching the news and it's getting more and more awful everytime. I'm glad presidents Bush and Clinton are going over to help coordinate efforts. I hope they do a good job.

Thank you for posting this Margaret.The thought of children in such a state is unbearably sad. We'll do what we can for sure.

Our one daughter posted something on Facebook about donating, prayers and etc. And two of her so called friends really disapproved of what she was saying and asking. They sound like they are related to Rush Limbaugh or Pat Robertson. But neither one of them are dead yet either, they may need help someday. I can't understand some people and their negative way of thinking. Good for you and the post you've done.

Thank you for posting on this Margaret. It's so heartbreaking reading about what they are having to deal with over there and a reminder for prayers and to help in any way we can is so important. I've been donating through the Red Cross and I only wish I could do more.
