Haiti: Widespread Devastation
At 4:53 p.m. on Tuesday, January 12, 2010, a 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck Haiti 10 miles west of Port-au-Prince, the nation’s capital. With reports of the death toll climbing to 230,000 in February, many Haitians lost their family members, homes, jobs, and sense of peace.
Radio Lumière, World Gospel Mission’s key ministry partner in Haiti, is struggling to stay on the air. As the voice of the Protestant church, Radio Lumière reaches about 90 percent of Haiti as it spreads hope and help to countless in need. This station was largely supported by Haitian believers who sacrificially gave an average of $1 per month to keep Radio Lumière on the air. Of course, that is no longer possible, as many now have absolutely nothing.
ACT: You can support the ministry of Radio Lumière by offering a financial gift to the President’s Crisis Relief Fund. This will help keep the radio station operating and provide for the needs of our Haitian brothers and sisters. Please write account # 41116-CALL on the memo line of your check.
WGM’s Prayer Lifeline will feature a recording of a prayer for Haiti today. Call 671.7232 (Marion, Indiana, area) or 1.800.426.0846 (toll free) to join the prayer intercession.
