Today is the two year anniversary of the disastrous earthquake in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The eyes of the whole world shifted to and lingered upon the tiny nation on the island of Hispaniola on January 12, 2010. Over the course of the past two years, many people have asked us to recount that day. Sometimes I can tell it without too much emotion, other times I remember too vividly the wild adrenaline pushing though my veins for hours afterwards. The fear, the instability, the ignorance that I had as I comforted my little Lotzes are all too real. We were completely unaware of the complete tragedy that had unfolded around us. With an attitude of humility, knowing that God’s hand was on each of us, we are forever thankful for the mercy that spared our family. May we continue to live in Haiti to work and serve where our lives were spared tragedy. May we forever be thankful for the huge blessings that God has supplied in our lives.
Today is a national holiday in Haiti so the people can grieve, fast and pray. Let us join in prayer for brothers and sisters in Haiti.
