If you want to help, first and foremost please make a donation via Lovin Life Ministries.
Second, you can join Helping Unification Church in Haiti on facebook to stay updated on their situation.
Below are two letters. This first is from Rev. Michael Lamson, the founder and administrator for "helping unification Church in Haiti" on facebook.
Haiti UC UpdateThis second letter is from the national leader of the Unification Church in Haiti, Theodule Paul.
Dear brothers and sisters,
I am sending information as it comes in so we can understand our members situation. I believe that even if we can not help financially we can use the power of prayer to send many absolute good spirits to help.
Phone and internet are difficult to come by at this time but our brother Paul is sending us updates as he can and our sister Evelyn Drake in Florida is also helping us collect information.
Tonight we learned that most members along with others are living in an open space behind the now destroyed church center. There is little food and no water. Most people have not been able to bathe since the quake hit. They have shared that the most prominent smell comes from those who have died. I can not imagine.
Theodule Paul the National leader, his wife Fugiko and their three children were in the center with members when the quake hit. When the quake hit Theothane their 6 year old daughter ran into the room where her mother was with their new born daughter. Fugiko could only run out of the house with the new born and one of the walls fell on Theothane.
Rev. Paul was able to escape with other members and his 3 year old son Theothile. It took them over an hour to dig out Theothane who was bleeding from her head and eyes.
The Japanese Embassy was able to relocate Fugiko, Theothane and their new born daughter to Dominican Republic. We are not sure how they are doing in Dominican Republic.
We are not sure how other members are but it looks like only Theothane was seriously injured.
It is possible that some of the banks will reopen in Port-au-Prince and we can start sending funds directly to the church account there. For now lets work together to help make sure the members can have basic food and water and help raise money to rebuild the church and mission in Haiti.
The sooner the Unification members and Church can stand back on their own feet, the sooner they can get back to their mission of helping the Haitian people to inherit God's heart. Please donate to help members get food and water and rebuild the church and mission in Haiti via the Lovin' Life Ministry's "Haiti Relief Fund". If you can't, and even if you can, prayers are of course also welcome to be sent their way, as well as for the entire nation of Haiti.
Dear Brothers and Sisters
9 days after the earthquake, we are still waiting for some help from the government or international community, we are about 100 people living in the yard of Unification Church with nothing: no water, no foods, no blankets, no tents, and we are on breathing death... our place is like a huge cemetery, children are crying but parents can not do anything.
We only listen on radio that help has come but we do not see nothing, the coordination is not made well, people must fight in order to find some foods or water.
we are living with many injured people who are also suffering from water and foods.
We do not have electricity, many of us do not take a bath since that tragedy, we are breathing all kind of thing particularly we are breathing the death.
we really need your help, your donation in order to face all this tragedy.
Many people are brcoming crazy because they have lost everything. they do see the value of life.
please help us.
may God bless you.
