taking the words of Jesus seriously

Three years after the earthquake, our hearts break still,
For those whose wounds of loss won’t heal,
For those who need far more than just recovery.

We stand with hope, but not forgetting collapse.
We commit to love, and so to both grief and change.

We seek God’s grace and presence, though in the midst.

We move forward with:
with people in Haiti,
with you,

with gratitude.

John & Kent and the Haiti Partners team
invite you to watch the following videos: an update from Haiti and song:

Words in English:

January 12th, a day of terror and tears.
Eyes and hearts of Haitians filled with pain,
January 12th, a day of terror and tears.
Eyes and hearts of Haitians filled with pain
A horrific disaster, followed by cholera, and misery
take so many to their death

Your blood spilled,
and your souls live on and you are with us,
Giving your fellow Haitians strength
for the work of rebuilding Haiti
