Heart of God International Haiti Update

Yesterday we posted a letter from Heart of God International regarding their presence in Haiti, an update, and prayer points. Here is some bittersweet news regarding the latest. Please keep the people of Haiti in prayer.

Pastor Dicksent Alive

Dear Partners, Family, and Friends,
Thank you so much for your incredible display of concern and support for our situation in Haiti.

Colonel Dave Young, Executive Director of Heart of God Haiti, just got off the phone with Pastor Dicksent who reported 160 children survived, and 40 children from the school were killed in the earthquake. Specific details are still sketchy but Dicksent said all ten of the teachers have made it through! The school building is completely destroyed. Dave will be communicating with him over the next few days to determine exactly what we need to do to help them.

Dave only had a few minutes with Dicksent, but in that time shared that the remaining 160 students' families are huddled in a tent in an open field away from the destroyed buildings and homes. Dave said Dicksent is in very rough shape (as you can well imagine) but covets your continued prayers.

Thank you one and all!
