Answered Prayers Orphanage Haiti

Share it Please

From my colleague, Rev. Frances Lorenz
________________________________________________________________

Answered Prayers is an orphanage just outside Port au Prince. It is an organization members of my congregation have supported in the past. They do wonderful inspiring work in Haiti and place orphans in homes in the US.

The orphanage was affected as per intermittent input and  twitter as well. One of the caregivers at the infant orphanage was killed in the quake. The American directors/caregivers of the infant/toddler house, Alli and Jamie, are 2 hours away (on a good day) by car, but the roads are impassable. They will probably have to abandon their vehicle to get back there. We have not received word of them today.

The 3 orphanages are standing right now but  they are all in danger of collapse. No one can get in right now, and no one can get out. Only the military and those with boats.

The orphans are the most vulnerable. The caregivers have their own families and worries to attend to. There are 3 American women caring for the children in 2 houses and then there is Margarette directing the other house. We don't know what is going to happen, but we want to make sure that the kids have the support they need and that their caregivers do too.

They expect that many more children will become orphaned as a result of the quake and that their caseload will increase.

I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
