Dear Evangelical Friends,
You have probably seen in the world news that the southern part of Haiti experienced a powerful earthquake on Saturday, August 14, and that there are thousands of people who died and thousands more injured. Many buildings and roads were either destroyed or badly damaged. It has been very difficult for relief efforts and medical aid to reach those who need help.
We have received inquiries from Friends in the United States about Friends in Haiti and our missionaries, William and Marie Bertrand. We are glad to report that they are all safe. There are no Friends churches in the area where the earthquake struck. Nevertheless, they are deeply concerned about what is happening in their country and are doing what they can to help, especially through prayer.
At this point EFM is not raising funds for relief efforts in Haiti, but we will definitely let you know if that changes. In the meantime, let’s continue to pray for Haiti. This country has suffered so much for so long. May the Lord have mercy and bring order out of chaos. And may his people be on the front lines of what he is doing.
Thank you for praying.
Your fellow servant in Christ,
