Haiti

On Tuesday, January 12, 2010, two weeks ago, an earthquake shattered the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in Haiti. As a Christian, our first thought is usually to pray for the people, for the rescue efforts, for healing.  But sometimes when something like this happens so far away, we can feel disconnected from it, like it isn’t really happening because it’s not happening to someone we know. Well, I have the privilege of knowing a sweet little boy from Haiti named Jonas, and was blessed to meet him and his adoptive mother, Rebekah, several months ago while on tour, and this is happening to them, to their friends and their family.

Rebekah adopted Jonas from God’s Littlest Angels Orphanage in Haiti.  Prior to his adoption, Jonas was cared for at the orphanage by a sweet woman named Anna Kagstrom, she took care of him for 9 months.  Since Rebekah and her family met Anna she has become a part of their family.  Originally from Sacramento, California, Anna has spent 15 years in Haiti and calls it her home.  Currently, Anna home schools the children of Licia Betor, a woman who runs Real Hope For Haiti, a rescue center and clinic that treats hundreds of malnourished children daily.

In the last two weeks, we have received several emails containing a link to Licia’s blog and we wanted to share it with you.  On January 15, 2010, Licia posted a blog entitled “I Am.” She spoke of the earthquake, of people in her life and what they were doing in Haiti right at that time, and she ended her post with this:

“This CD below has been playing everyday non-stop since the earthquake in the office.  It gives me so much peace to listen to it. I have no idea how to contact this group to thank them for their music.  But it has been a true blessing to me.”

We are so blessed and honored to know that our music has served as spiritual healing in this horrible time.  God is so great, and he shows up wherever and whenever we need him. Please take the time to read Licia’s blog, it will inspire you.

If you would like to help the people of Haiti, here are two great places to donate:

  1. Amy,

    It was such a privilege to have you guys do a concert for God’s Littlest Angels in Hudsonville Michigan back in November. So many of us involved have talked since then about what a blessing you have been to so many.

    As a board member for God’s Littlest Angels and an adoptive father of two kids from Haiti, I can tell you, it makes such a difference when people reach out and want to help.

    Thank you for what you do, it really matters and we appreciate it.
