A major earthquake struck just off the coast of Haiti late this afternoon, January 12. According to reports, the 7.0 quake has caused major damage in the capital city, Port-au-Prince.
Please urgently pray for all those impacted by this disaster. We will provide Hotline updates as soon as reports are received as to the welfare of Free Methodist missionaries, church members and children sponsored through International Child Care Ministries.
The 79 Free Methodist Haitian churches have a total membership of 14,642.
International Child Care Ministries sponsors more than 4,000 children in Haiti. ICCM has 53 schools across the island nation, many in or near Port-au-Prince. ICCM Haitian offices are in Port-au-Prince.
We join with the whole world in grieving this tragic earthquake in Haiti. Our hearts and minds cannot imagine the level of devastation, and we fear the news of the next few days will compound our grief.
