That is not the case in Haiti, where one year ago today at exactly 4:53:10 PM ET, the landscape changed dramatically both literally and figuratively. If your year consisted of mourning lost loved ones, being fitted for prosthetic limbs, searching desperately for food, water, and shelter, trying to avoid rape, murder, and kidnap, and suffering cholera, it could not have passed quickly enough.
Those are the issues our friends in Haiti have lived with day in and day out. To us here in the U.S., a difficult time is a snowstorm that melts away eventually and gasoline prices that make driving our gas-guzzlers more of a hassle. While it has never been easy in Haiti, since the quake it must seem like a bottomless pit of despair.
While Servants for Haiti is in the process of changing the way we operate in Haiti, we are unwavering in our commitment there. We cannot become discouraged because too much is at stake. We are determined in the name and power of God to make a lasting difference. We hope you will continue to stand with us as we stand with the Haitian people.
Today, in whatever way you deem appropriate, please remember our Haitian brothers and sisters and all they have gone through in the past year.
