We’ve received some good news this afternoon. All of the children from Val’s Orphanage have been accounted for and are safe! I don’t know the exact details of what happened there, but here’s the story as far as I know…
Our missionary friends were visiting the orphanage and had just left when the earthquake hit. They returned to find the building collapsed, and couldn’t get any response from the rubble. They couldn’t stay long, as they had to get back to Christianville and check on their kids and grandkids.
Today, all of the kids are accounted for, but some of the adults are still missing. Among the missing is Val, the orphanage’s director. Val was on his way to Port Au Prince to pick people up at the airport. So far, no one knows if he was in Port Au Prince when the earthquake struck, or if he was en route.
Please continue to lift up the nation of Haiti, the humanitarian workers, missionaries, and doctors who will have more than their share of work to do in the coming months and years.
Peace, and praise God!
