Ben and Katie in Haiti

Our friends, Ben and Katie, are in Haiti. They were called from their comfortable, newly-wed lives in Dallas, TX to go to the impoverished, island country and serve the people there by teaching in a Christian school. They have been there for about 2 weeks.

You can see what they have been up to by reading their blog.
A post or two reveals that even though they have heard His call and are trusting the Lord daily, they have at times wondered, "What have we gotten ourselves into?" and "Why are we here?"
Yesterday, the largest earthquake in the past 200 years struck Haiti, with an epicenter just 10 miles outside the city they are living in. While we have had no direct contact with our friends, we have heard through the grapevine, that they are safe and unhurt. However, many of the children at their school have still not heard from their parents. With death toll estimates reaching into the thousands, some may not see their parents again.
B and K,
I truly admire yall's courage to step boldly to where you have been called by the Lord. While it may not be the only way He uses you while in Haiti, I am awestruck by His foresight to put you in the lives of those children in their time of great need.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
