Rubble after the Earthquake

In 45 seconds, 350,000 Haitians lost their lives on Tuesday, January 10, 2010. I remember our mid-week service the next day, and the heaviness we all felt. We prayed, gave and wondered what the future held for the immediate recovery.

Thankfully, the world responded. From my observations, the earthquake debris has been largely cleared, but its still a country of rubble. Broken government, education and values still victimize these precious people. The humanitarian and spiritual needs are so immense, that the earthquake of 2010 is just one story in a sad history of slow progress.

On a two hour plane ride from Miami, there is a different world called Haiti.
