One of the founding members of our Prayer Furnace – an initiative of this blog – is a couple in Haiti. They are Michael and Andrea Brewer. They care for 21 children and are looking for a new house, now that their orphanage has been destroyed.
Please come to our Prayer Furnace and publicly support them in prayer. Post your prayers there so they know they are not alone. They are obviously very busy, but I will contact them when we have some comments and prayer listed and invite them to read and respond.
Please pray for what God is doing. The Kingdom of God is breaking out there. Have a read:
“PORT-AU-PRINCE — At night, voices rise in the street. Sweet, joyful, musical voices in lyric Creole. A symphony of hope in a landscape of despair. “It doesn’t mean anything if Satan hates me, because God loves me,” sing the women at Jeremy Square, their faces almost invisible in the darkness of this powerless, shattered downtown. “God has already paid my debt.”
Port-au-Prince has become a kind of multidenominational, open-air church.” – Washington Post
This break out amidst terrible trauma and devastation MUST be supported in prayer. So please visit our Prayer Furnace and pray! And please do it in public so that others can follow you as you take your stand publicly.
God bless you!
From Haiti’s ruins, a chance to rebuild a nation – Washington Post
Even as rescuers are digging victims out of the rubble in Haiti, policymakers in Washington and around the world are grappling with how a destitute, corrupt and now devastated country might be transformed into a self-sustaining nation.
But the leveled capital, Port-au-Prince, must be rebuilt, promising one of the largest economic development efforts ever undertaken in the hemisphere — an effort “measured in months and even years,” President Obama said Saturday in an appeal for donations alongside former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. And those who will help oversee it are thinking hard about how to use that money and attention to change the country forever.
“It’s terrible to look at it this way, but out of crisis often comes real change,” said C. Ross Anthony, the Rand Corp.’s global health director. “The people and the institutions take on the crisis and bring forth things they weren’t able to do in the past.”
