Dreamt of Haiti...

After finally falling asleep last night I dreamt of Haiti. The rubble. The cries. The desparation. And it was only a dream. I cannot imagine what it is like in real life. The sights, the sounds, the smells. My thoughts are still with you Haiti. And if somehow I can lend a helping hand, a caring heart, I will be there. For now, you are in my prayers.

Today I am thinking not only of those injured directly by the earthquake but also about the men, women and children with other medical conditions unrelated to the earthquake but not able to get help due to lack of medical infrastructure etc. The children suffering from pneumonia. The women in child labor without someone to hold their hand or someone to guide them through the delivery. The people suffering from common illnesses, normally finding care in the hospitals or clinics, but now having nowhere to go. My thoughts are with you.

San, waar jij handen vasthoudt, geef je GODS handen en liefde aan de mensen. Als jij naar mensen kijkt zien ze in jouw ogen de ogen van God. Vol bewogenheid en liefde. Jij laat zijn troost en ontferming letterlijk zien. Je bent een prachtig instrument in zijn hand. Hij brengt je daar waar je samen met Hem zult zijn in dienst van Hem. Ik bid je zijn vrede toe.
