Broken

I don't even know what to blog. I feel torn and broken by the events of the week.

My heart aches for the people of Haiti. For the friends I made while I was there. For the beautiful people whose lives have been ripped apart by this tragedy. Praying and desperately hopeful for the families in process that God will make a way for their children to come home now. Yet my little Haitian girl...I have no news of her. I do not know she is safe. I am not in the process to bring her home and I may never know if she and her mother survived. I am feeling raw and praying that somehow we will get word of her - good or bad. I am outsider to the events that are happening there and yet they effect me deeply and personally.

On the other side of the world I have a beautiful girl waiting for a passport so she can board a plane and come home.

I don't know what to feel and yet I must find a way to get through the days for my family here and keep looking to the God who sustains me.

The Lord is my strength and my song;
He has become my salvation.
He is my God and I will praise him,
my father's God, and I will exalt him.
Exodus 15:2

Please pray for Anchise. Please pray for Haiti. Please pray for Mercy's passport. Pray.

I have been thinking about Anchise ever since I heard about the earthquake. I don't know what else to say--the whole thing makes me feel helpless and sad.

My heart aches for you. It must feel as though you're being split by grief in two different directions. How I've been praying you'd receive GOOD news from Ghana in the midst of the Haiti nightmare! And I won't stop!

I'm so sorry. I will be praying for your broken heart. I know that our Prince can mend it; He can bind up our wounds. I will pray that Joy and Comfort will be yours and the Peace that passes undestanding will greet you in the morning.

Hugs to you, precious one.

Love to you today.

I am so sorry Mercy is still not home.

And I pray you get word on Anchise soon.
