The concerns right now are that the food, fuel, water, and supplies will soon be running out in Haiti. This shortage is what will directly impact the orphanages there. An easy way to help Children of the Promise (Jac's former orphange) is through Adoption Ark. By shopping online through the link provided, you are able to purchase items most needed by COTP, and ship them directly to Agape Flights in Florida. Agape flies into CapHaitian and delivers them straight to COTP. This not only saves time, but you are also able to ship any order over $25 for FREE. Just follow the easy instructions on the page. I know they would certainly appreciate it as supplies begin to dwindle and things become desperate.
Also please be in prayer RIGHT NOW for For His Glory Orphanage. Many of my friends are desperately trying to get their children home from this orphanage. For His Glory released this news bulletin a little bit ago:
URGENT CALL FOR PRAYER
We received word from Pierre this morning that the situation in the orphanage is becoming dire. We would like to ask EVERYONE that receives this to use this information to get on your knees before our Lord and ask Him to provide.
We have one nanny that is deceased and the orphanage needs her body to be removed.
The orphanage has no drinkable water.
In addition they need:
formula for babies
IV fluids (one child is currently on an IV)
charcoal to cook
cash to buy supplies if they find them. They are running out of cash and there are no banks open to get cash, so it needs to be delivered by someone already on the ground or by helicopter.
Others are beginning to rob them of what supplies they do have.
There are helicopters flying over the orphanage and they have made a sign on the roof that says they are an orphanage and need help.
The staff is also working to get together all the paperwork for each child that has an adoptive family in a way that it can be attached to their body if there is an opportunity to evacuate.
For His Glory is doing everything we can on this end to contact people who may be able to help. Please pray. Currently, that is the best thing you can do to help. Kim is doing everything she can, and respectfully requests that adoptive families do not call her at this time. We realize this is a very difficult time, however she needs her phone and time available to do everything she can to make contacts to try to help the children and staff at the orphanage. We will give you any updates we have as soon as they are available.
Trusting in Him,
For His Glory
God help us your people, as we become Your hands and feet to the people of Haiti....
