Just got home from church and pulled up Licia's blog. Here's what she said:
Ike hit us hard here in Cazale. We had to run with the children to the second story of the houses. There is much destruction. I have not slept yet. Everything everywhere is a mess. They are removing bodies from the river that has been washed down from other villages. It is very serious. Lori and Charles house has a least 1 foot of mud in it. Most of their belongings are destroyed. The water level in their house was waist high. The main bridge in Cazale washed away. Please….I am asking you from the deepest part of my heart to pray..pray for us..pray for the kids….pray…pray…pray. All the kids in the RC are safe. My family is safe. Amos, Story, faith, hope, Rosena, ronel all safe. Unbelievable pictures to share.
If anyone here in Haiti is reading this and can send me some phone cards for digicel I would greatly appreciate it. My cell phone number is 3761-9464.
So, my heart is hurting for Licia and the workers there. They are no doubt exhausted both physically and emotionally. I'm thankful they are all okay and thankful that the kids are okay.
Please remember to pray for Licia, the kids at the RC and all the people in the village of Cazalle.
Thank God the children are okay. I will pray, pray, pray.
Oh how I am praying.
Praying and asking our friends and family to pray.
Please e-mail me – I have a question on your upcoming trip to Haiti. amy dot feldman at zimmer dot com
I have been praying for the kids and licia and laurie and the rc. When do you leave? Isn’t it this week? I wish I were going with you? Maybe next time we can take our whole family. We will be praying for you while you are there.
Guess what our kids told us last night? We were all sitting on our bed, getting ready to pray and jared said, “I want to move,” the girls both said, “We do too, to Texas!” Jared agreed that he wanted to move there also. What’s up with that?? Of course my prayers are that God is getting ready to open up something there and He is preparing their hearts for that. Wouldn’t that be cool! We’ve never had all 3 of them want to move the same place at the same time. Who knows. Praying for Amos and Story and all that are in Haiti. Love you.
