Update from on the ground in Haiti

I was just forwarded this email from our friends Mark and Aegis Stuart. Mark and Aegis are in Jacmel Haiti at the ministry they founded http://www.handsandfeetproject.org

Restoration Ministries is in the same town, Jacmel. It’s about 15 minutes away. We still don’t have official word on the status of our structures. We continue to raise funds knowing that there is an immediate and urgent need. If you feel led to give you can go to http://www.conduitmission.org we’re wiring our first round of cash this afternoon. Pastor Lafluer is enroute and once he’s on the ground I want him to have immediate access to financial resources.

Please pray. And please give. http://www.conduitmission.org

Here is the email..

Hi everyone….
Our internet is working finally. So I’m sending this to a few of you….
Everyone here is ok, but we are all very scared. The buildings held up great, but there are several houses right around us that have collapsed. Also, Hotel Cyvadier had major damage, while the brand new three story “peace of mind” hotel was demolished. Francine, one of our teenage nannies was in afternoon school and escaped while the building was collapsing around her because she was sitting by the door…however many of her classmates died yesterday. Many houses and and buildings have collapsed in Jacmel including the hospital. I know most of the news there is coming from PAP, but there is substantial loss of life here on the south coast. We need prayer for wisdom and strength. Its very chaotic here. We were able to buy diesel this morning and hopefully get more propane for cooking tomorrow. Last night was crazy…slept on the dirt in the center of the village…away from the buildings. Tonight we may venture back indoors, but that is yet to be decided. We go in and out to get necessities. The Haitian people are numb and sad to say very used to death, but this has created what seems to be a hypnotic state. I’ve never been in a situation were you feel SO helpless, fearful, and small. The tremors are coming again as i type this. Whoa!!!
Mark

With a heavy heart,
