When Cross International Catholic Outreach was launched more than a decade ago in South Florida, we began much of our overseas ministry in Haiti—only 90 minutes from Florida’s shore, yet the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Today we continue to work with many of the same partners we first sponsored in those fledgling years. Together “we are co-workers in God’s service.” (1 Cor. 3:9a)
It’s been nearly two years since the earthquake devastated Port-au-Prince, Haiti’s capital city and metropolitan center. We still mourn the loss of friends and loved ones. We have a deeper appreciation for the Lord’s divine strength to endure. And we have a profound respect for Haitian survivors who continue to praise the Lord as they pick up the pieces of their lives.
Please…Keep Haiti and the long-term recovery efforts of our Haitian partners in your prayers.
