Pray for Haiti

Urgent Request: Please pray for Haiti and neighboring/near-by nations in the Caribbean.

A 7.0 earthquake hit Haiti about an hour ago, with a 5.9, and 5.5 aftershocks right outside of the capital city of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Since the break happened so close to the surface, it caused much damage and shaking. Reports are that hospitals and homes toppled, with people inside.

This earthquake was felt very strongly into the Dominican Republic. We ask that you please pray for the people in Haiti, as darkness has fallen and rescue efforts will be difficult. The countries of Cuba, Bahamas and the Dominican Republic are under Tsunami watch.

Please pray for our missionaries in these countries, for God's protection upon them, our churches and our people.
