The Common Good

On the Ground in Haiti

Thank you so much for your concern, prayers, and gifts for people in Haiti. Here is a three-minute video from Haiti Partners co-director John Engle, who is in Port-au-Prince right now. I talked with John for 20 minutes this morning. This afternoon he is on a motorcycle trying to get to one of our schools in Port-au-Prince to see how the children and teachers are. He's assessing how Haiti Partners will best be able to respond. Thank you for your prayers.
