You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.
You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Deuteronomy 6:5-9

Please Pray for Peace in Haiti

I got this email from our trip's organizer-who forwarded it from a board member of Three Angels in Haiti. It breaks my heart. Please pray for the people of Haiti.



Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Phl 4:6

Subject: Please pray!

Please pray for peace to return to Haiti. The following message has been posted with regards to the situation in Haiti. This could not only hinder adoptions but could cause devastation to the country.

This recent outbreak of violence has been caused by the rise in the cost of food, gas, etc.
Some basic examples of the increases that have been noticed here-

1 bag of rice (50kg) 1200gds ($31.37us) 2000gds ($52.28us)

1 bag or beans (50kg)2000gds ($52.28us) 3000gds ($78.43us)

1 bottle of cook oil 175gds ($4.57us) 300gds ($7.84us)

1gallon of gas 175gds ($4.57us) 230gds ($6.00us)

1 can of powder milk 1000gds ($26.14us) 1800gds ($47.05us)

As many of you know, Haiti is one of the world's poorest countries and even in peaceful times life is hard. So, please join us in praying for Haiti and for peace to return. Pray for wisdom for the government officials and pray for provision for the Haitian families.
