thanks for your help in saving the lives of haitian orphans!

the other day i posted a desperate cry for help. an orphanage i’d visited in haiti, and that teams from my church have visited and helped many times over the past year, was discovered to be trafficking children. i asked you to click through and sign a petition to apply some pressure to those who had the power to shut the orphanage down (the 6 churches and ministries involved — my church being one of them — had already prepared placement for all the kids in the orphanage). many of you clicked through, and many of you passed along the need on facebook and other social networking sites. we met our goal of 10,000 signature (passed it, in fact).

and…

i just got this facebook message from a woman in my church who’s there right now!

It’s done!! You guys, we won! After a morning full of police, guns, and arrests the kids were loaded up and they are now on their way to safety! Praise you Jesus!!

thank you, jesus, indeed.

and thank you, whyismarko readers.

  1. We were part of a team with the Nazarene Church that went To Haiti in June. I am here but my heart is definitely there. Isn’t it amazing to see what happens when we put God in control. Thanks to all of those who God worked through to make this happen. As I write this tears stream down my cheeks for the children that were not saved and at the same time tears because so many were able to be placed in safe places.

  2. Amazing. Seriously praise Jesus! I shared the original plea with many friends, and it’s just incredible to see an answer to prayer that quickly. Thanks for raising the awareness, Marko.
