We got 10 gallons of gas left for the generator and there is no more gas in Cabaret.

There is no gas in Port-au-Prince.

Food and water are very scarce.

Prices for everything have

Charles went to PAP today. He could barely describe what he saw, “The flood was nothing.” He said that the houses on the side of the mountains either collapsed or completely fell through the ground as the ravine opened up. He said road were blocked by piles of dead people pulled from the wreckage. Our school in PAP collapsed on itself, they think people are still inside but no one can help. Most government buildings, a lot of the U.N. force and many, many people… gone. As the earthquake passed through yesterday, any infustructure Haiti had… gone. “PAP is down… everything… no food, no water, no gas, no help.”

I can’t sleep.  I keep having this dream of falling and violently wake up.
Our medical clinic was packed all day, still is. It is a very bloody scene. Compound fractures, giant gashes and they keep flooding in. On beds, backs, wood. They are now getting here from PAP, at least a 20 mile hike.

The team from Savannah has a man named Jose who is an engineer for Gulf Streamliners. Friday morning, the team will have a military convoy escorting them to PAP and they will fly out on one of those planes. 14 seats, 14 savannahians.

We still don’t know what will happen next here. We just keep trying to help people in the clinic. I think the plane coming will bring us some aid. 

We need intentional prayers. Contact your friends, get together and pray hard. PAP prolly will turn in a refugee camp whenever help finally gets here. There are many dead and far more dying.

I’ve never felt sorrow like this.

I just took an hour break from writing. Another huge aftershock. Everyone ran out of the house.

I think this sorrow is making me physically sick. The Earth keeps moving. My head keeps spinning.

I feel so much distress that my heart physically hurts and seems to skip beats.

I switch from tears to goosebumps, back and forth.

No where more will his voice be hear louder and his heart be felt deeper than where you are now.

1 Corinthians 10:13

"No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it."

1/14/2010 03:07:01 am

Praying won't do anything. Stop living in a fantasy world.
God, what stupid concept. Earthquakes happen because of shifting teutonic plates.
I feel bad for these people, so please help them--but stop living in a fantasy world! If you think prayer will help--and genuinely want to help--actually go to Haiti and help!

1/14/2010 09:35:54 am

I don't know you personally, but you're my brother in Christ. I visit a home for girls in Delmas 3-4 times a year. My heart is in Haiti even though I'm safe at home in New Jersey. May God give you supernatural peace, strength, hope & rest. I rebuke the devil who would try to come against you. May you hear God's voice & may He prepare the way before you.

Dearest Jeremy, I was forwarded your blog by a Precept bible study leader who sent it across the world to studies who will be keeping you in prayer. I want to encourage you to be courageous, and as we know, courage doesn't mean not being afraid, but facing the fear and moving forward while you are in it. Whether you were able to escape, or decided to stay, your life will forever be changed. You will now have a compassion that you never before possessed because of your experiential knowledge, which is so different. You became "one of them" the day the earth shook, instead of one just helping them. Pay attention to what Ben wrote on Jan 14, and keep him in your prayers. Yes, people should not "just" pray, people should help, but those who can not get to Haiti, or those who do not have the funds are doing what they can and praying is a powerful tool. There are MANY who believe there is no God, and you, in all the horror you have lived through these last few days, have a life blessed wayyyy beyond what Ben can even imagine in his limited understanding of life, and our Eternal, Omniscient God. You have been blessed with living and surviving the experience and it will equip you to handle more than you know in the future. You will not be the jerk in line at the supermarket who loses his temper when the lady in front of him can't find her money in her purse. You won't be the idiot who cusses out the cars who cut him off on the freeway. You have seen real terror and real destruction and you will forever be aware of what real trials are and not just from the perspective of a rescuer, but from a victim as well. God bless you as you seek comfort in your heart and mind and start to process all that has happened. Jeremy, you are being more than prayed for, you are being fashioned by God, Himself, for a purpose. Walk in faith and know that you are loved and valued as a precious jewel in His crown. Most sincerely, Antoniette Saunders

1/15/2010 08:44:24 am

Jan Priddy, from Precept, sent me your blog. I am sending it on via facebook to all my friends. Prayer is our greatest weapon in the war we face on this world. I am praying for your faith...that it would be strengthened. Please let us know how you and your kids are as soon as possible. Praising God for you.
