I got word from Compassion International that the area in Haiti where my child, St. Hilaire Germima, lives was “moderately affected” and no deaths reported. Thank God! And thanks to all who prayed for this dear child and her family. I am so relieved they are as safe as can be expected under the circumstances. There were only minor damages to the Child Development Center in that area. I still can’t send letters, but I can pray! And that’s most important.
Please continue to pray for relief work in Haiti, and for St. Hilaire and her family. Again, I am impressed with Compassion. Check out their blog for what they’re doing and how they do it. You can donate to the Haiti earthquake relief effort here, and any gifts before March 1 can be claimed as a tax deduction on your 2009 taxes. (Yes, it’s that time of the year again.)
And thank you to those who helped me raise funds for Haiti through getting some of the publishing coach products I put on sale . Your reward will be an everlasting one, and I can’t help but think you’ll also be blessed with what you do with what you bought.
