This is Miraclid, a young single mom. Rebecca wrote of her walking down the street, her baby under one arm, her yarn under the other, crocheting as she walked.
(Edited to add: Louisson has been located and is fine.) I urge you to go over to Rebecca's blog and read a few posts about her take on this tragic event. And, I urge you to pray. Pray for the people who are grieving the loss of life, of homes, of family, of a life that, although full of hardship, is familiar to them. Pray that they will know God's love and peace.
We received an email this morning from Steve Nelson, a physician with HCJB Global Hands, the organization we worked with in Ecuador. Steve is the doctor who delivered our first daughter and was our family doctor during the years we were there. He, and a team from Ecuador, are heading to Haiti Thursday to provide medical relief. I wish I could go with them - I'm not a medical person, but I could translate for them. However, instead, I will pray God's blessing on them, that they would be His hands and heart showing love to a people in desperate need.
