Report from Rick Ireland

  -January 11th, 2011 @ 8:39 pm

Three Sundays ago, I worshiped at Faustin 1st Free Methodist. They are in a temporary church built for about 1,200. It isn’t big enough. Two Sundays ago, I worshiped at Parc Chretien Church. It can seat about 2,000. People were standing in the courtyard. This past Sunday, I worshiped at Puit Blain. This temporary church can seat 1,000. They, too, have outgrown their space. All three of these churches have grown substantially over the past year. In the midst of the chaos, God is at work

Video Update from Haiti

  -November 6th, 2010 @ 7:59 pm

It’s been ten months since the devastating that hit in January. My memories of that stuck with me the scenes of devastation, hurting people and the smell of death. I have heard good things of what has happened here in the months since but it’s hard to mesh that reality with what I saw during that initial trip to to just see how the children from the schools and the free Methodist church got through this disaster. Today I landed in a much different city. If you know what your looking for it’s still apparent they had a major earthquake. Like the airport terminal is a undersized warehouse since the terminal has been damaged. There are empty lots where there used to be buildings and of course scores of tent cities to house the homeless. But it was in the eyes of the people at the santo ICCM school that I saw the real hope for . The shock has been replaced with determination to help see this little corner of heal.

Katie Zook Talks From Hospital Bed

  -January 28th, 2010 @ 7:12 am

from Q13 Fox News, Seattle/Tecoma.

Katie Zook is one of the lucky ones who got out alive after the devastating in . She’s recovering in a Florida hospital and hoping to be back home in Arlington some time soon. It will take time for her body and mind to heal, but her spirit was never broken.

It was a very close call for her. Friends and strangers risked their lives and pulled katie from the wreckage. She was rushed to a hospital at the U.S. embassy in Haiti, then to Guantanamo’s medical clinic, then to Florida – all within 2 days.

“Hello? I see you,” says from her hospital bed near Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I reached her by Skype. The 22-year-old is recovering and remembering:

“I remember how dark that dark was when I was trapped,” she says looking off into the distance. “I have never been in dark like that before.”

Exactly two weeks ago, Katie was in Haiti volunteering as a missionary in Port Au Prince when her world crumbled.

“and there was this loud rumble like a jet headed straight for the building,” she remembers, “and then the building started moving.”

She had no idea of the massive devastation around her. Hurt and frantic, her co-worker Jack got out, but Katie did not.

“…and I could hear Jack screaming and every time there was an aftershock I heard everyone in the streets screaming.”

For hours she was one of many trapped under the rubble, curled up in the fetal position in darkness, but then:

“I had enough room around my right arm to grab the bottle and tap it against the table, so Jack could hear the tapping, but when I yelled he couldn’t hear me yelling so I gave up yelling and I just tapped…” she trails off.

The church’s Haitian driver John heard the tapping too, then started praying and digging.

The whole story is available at Q13 Fox News, Seattle/Tecoma.
