Much Prayer is Needed
If you didn't read the article in the last post, then check that out. From what we are hearing there are some concerns for Michael's safety and the safety of all at the orphanage. The orphanage is keeping everyone in at this point to try to stay safe. Some of the statistics we are hearing from Haiti are alarming. Gas is running around $7-8 US per gallon. One family that recently brought their children home paid nearly $4 for a can of tomato paste while they were there. Food has gone up about 40% since mid 2007. Please pray that things would calm down and that the people would get some help. While all of this is going on, it seems that all or most of the government offices are shut down. That has not been confirmed, but the US consulate shut down at least one day and usually it seems the Haitian offices are forced to shut down as well for safety reasons. Please pray for us as we have hit yet another roadblock to bringing Michael home and PLEASE pray for the people of Haiti. People are starving to death and they don't know what to do to change things.
