On the Ground in Haiti

I posted the other day about my friend Kent and his work with the organization, Haiti Partners.  Kent has written a book on his years that he and his wife spent in Haiti entitled Following Jesus Through the Eye of the Needle: Living Fully, Loving Dangerously.  I have begun reading this book and highly encourage your reading as well if you want to know more about Haiti, but also want to be challenged in your faith journey.  Kent’s words have been very moving and have really pushed me as I have read.  I’ll post a larger review in a few days once I finish the book.

In the meantime, Kent has returned to Haiti to help with the relief and the work of Haiti Partners there following the earthquake.  HaitiPartners has set up a blog describing their efforts since the earthquake and Kent and others have been posting videos about the work they are doing.  They are also posting videos regularly about what is taking place.  These have guided me in my prayers for Haiti in recent days and I encourage you to view them as well.  The most recent is embedded below.
