It’s been one year since the earthquake struck Haiti. How do things look in Haiti today? Many things remain the same–rubble still lines the streets and hopelessness is still evident on some faces, but here and there a spark of hope flourishes. Rubble is being cleared, aid organizations are rebuilding houses, and hope is returning. But after one year, much remains to be done.
CAM’s current focus in Haiti is rebuilding. At the end of 2010, with the help of generous supporters, workers had rebuilt 189 houses, 3 churches, and 1 school. By the end of this year our goal is to have approximately 500 more houses completed.

Please pray for the people of Haiti as they rebuild their homes and lives. Pray that the seeds of the Gospel that were planted might take root and bear much fruit.
