Oh Lord, have mercy!

We just heard the news of the earthquake in Haiti - - - and our hearts are shattered - - - crying for the hundreds/thousands+ people in despair - as I am typing...

Lord, may you bring comfort to the grieving, hope to the despairing, healing to the hurting and practical help for all who need it. May your body rise up and be your hands and feet to the precious people in Haiti that are already so terribly impoverished!

Rich was asked by Rescue-Net if he was willing to deploy to Haiti.
Willing, YES, he would absolutely LOVE to go, but unfortunately it won't be possible.
Rich is more than busy for the next few weeks:
  • 2 days of training as ambulance officer. He has started a EMT-course with mostly online learning and occasional classroom time, the first of which will be this Sat/Sunday.
  • YWAM's 50th anniversary celebration, the JUBILEE, is starting here in Tauranga on Sunday.
  • Call2All Next Generation is starting next Tuesday - for 3 1/2 days.
  • Next: IWT leadership meetings from Sat next week to Monday
  • Tuesday, Jan 26: Auckland for more meetings - YWAM Pacific
  • Jan 27 - Feb 2nd: Great Barrier Island for yearly IWT staff retreat.
Rich is VERY busy with all these things and can't get out of his responsibilities.
Did I mention that we'll be hosting a few people at our home for these events?
A group of 10 Koreans will be sleeping here tomorrow night, and all of next week, we'll have the pleasure of housing 10 Samoans, Yehaaaaa!
