From: Josué MICHEL
As you may already know, the earthquake that hurt Haiti killed many people and left many others homeless, hungry and very sick. And I'm one of them. My house is not completely distroyed but we can't sleep in it. One of my uncles (Pastor Michel) and many other cousins and friends are homeless.
Communication is almost impossible now, so I can't tell if all my friends and relatives are fine. But I know that I lost two of my cousins, and another one is terribly hurt.
To tell you some of the story of the nightmares from the past 3 days. On the night before I got some bad dreams and felt very uncomfortable but I didn't really understand was goin' to happen. I talked to my boss and told him to be carful 'cause he was goin' to pickup guests at the airport. I asked him to pray before he leaves.
I did the same thing at the school too. I told the teachers to pray a lot with the kids cause something was bothering me. I had the kids pray three time during the school day witch ended at 3:30 pm. But as I had to teach a class at 4:00 pm, for sunday school teachers, I waited until that time.
The school is in Montrouis (43 miles north Port-au-Prince), and while I was teaching, I heard a lot of things shaking around the building (I was on the 2nd floor), and the school started shaking. I ran down and stood in the middle of the school yard so I could watch everything. It stopped and I went up to the classroom. A minute later, it restarted again. I ran down and went home. At that time, I just figured out that my cellphone wasn't working anymore.
I came to understand that the earthquake was a serious one and I started being worried about my family. So we checked the internet (not even working well) and found out that it was a terrible situation in PAP. We checked the news and heard that PAP almost completely destroyed.
My boss and I went to PAP together and I found my house broken a bit but everybody was fine, I cried and cried cause even though I wanted to see my family alive, but I saw so many houses broken, I thought I wouldn't find them. I thank the Lord for letting me breathe again!
I visited PAP and saw thousands of people homeless and crying out for help, food, water and medical care. That broke my heart. And later during the day I heard about my uncle and my cousins. Now I'm like those many thousands of people crying out for help. To be honest, my house doesn't need a lot improvement but I cant stay in it anyway. We need food, which is very difficult to find in PAP now, to renew the houses and medical care. Any help would be welcome.
I you would like to contact me, please call on 001 37 31 43 32 or 001 25 11 74 73
I'll be blessed if you can help (prayers &/or money.
