This is the Day That I Pray for Haiti

Even as I sit here in rainy, muggy Austin, my heart is a thousand miles away.  In Haiti.  A place where I’ve never been.  A place where poverty and disaster collide.  A place where God lives and is working in his own way and his own timing.

Several of my friends– both from my real life and from my writing and blogging world– are in Haiti right now on the HelpOneNow Haiti Bloggers trip.  These women– Mary DeMuth, Jen Hatmaker, Jennie Allen, Mollie Burpo to name a few (ever heard of them?) are standing in the gap right now to fight for the orphans of Haiti.  And while I can’t be there in person, I can be there in prayer.

This morning, I spent some time reading the amazing words and looking at the incredible photos that this team is sending back to us from Haiti.  Stories of hope, photos of life, stories of God.  And through a veil of tears, I realized one thing:  God is moving in Haiti.

And I can’t wait to see how His plan unfolds.

And so, this is the day that I am praying for Haiti.  Will you join me?
