Real Quick

I just wanted to post the link for the Compassion disaster relief fund, set up for Haiti.

Compassion has been very good at sending updates to all of the sponsors with children in Haiti.
This is the email I received today:

Haitian Children and Families Devastated by Massive Earthquake
Dear Lindsey,
The catastrophic earthquake that hit Haiti yesterday has resulted in unfathomable chaos and devastation for hundreds of thousands of children and families. Compassion sponsors and donors serve more than 65,000 children in Haiti. At least a third of them live in the areas that were hardest hit.We know that you sponsor Love Woodshaina K Joseph and that you must be very concerned. Be assured that we are working to locate your child and determine her specific situation as quickly as possible. We will share this personal update with you as soon as we have that information.
We are working rapidly to assess the situation and determine the full extent of damage:
Sadly, we anticipate there will be many deaths.
We anticipate thousands of children and families will have lost everything.
We anticipate many of our church-based child development centers will have been destroyed. Without a doubt, the children we serve in Haiti are in shock and face immediate needs for food, water, medical care, shelter, and counseling. We have teams prepared to respond, and we are deeply committed to helping each child. We need your donation today. Please reach out in the name of Jesus to bring relief, comfort, love and restoration to precious children and families whose lives have been devastated by this crisis. Thank you for caring, Dr. Wess StaffordPresident, USA

Oh and just in case you were curious, here is a map of Haiti with all of the Compassion Child Development Centers marked.

Just wanted to update, please keep praying.
