A part of this team was my sweet friend!! She was so excited to go and counted down the days! Her heart was overwhelmed with JOY to be able to go. So she packed up and left her hubby and 3 small kiddos! When we heard about the quake.. we waited for word from her. Finally... she was fine... the whole team was fine! They were rescued from the beach by the US forces in Black Hawk helicopters and taken to the Dominican Republic. There they caught a flight home to Central FL.
Please don't forget Haiti!! This is a video put together that they showed at a recent fundraiser. It features our NEW MISSIONS team from Central FL and my dear sweet friend. She is the woman at the beginning! It also shows the moment the quake hit! It will move you, literally!!
I will certainly NOT forget Haiti.... her name is Jessica and we LOVE our sponsored child! She needs us now more than ever. We have been sponsoring her for almost 2 1/2 years now!! We love her sweet little letters!! We haven't heard anything from the organization about the status of our sweet Jessica, but we know she is in the Lord's mighty hands!!
If you can help visit New Missions website!! I know now more than ever... little ones will need your support!
I was told that if I haven't heard from New Missions re: Jessica then she was safe!! PTL!!!
Also ... if you go over to THE NEWLYWEDS BLOG she is donating $$ to relief for Haiti for every comment that is left on her post!! GO... such a simple easy way to help!
