With the earthquake that happened in Haiti yesterday, so many people are affected, one of whom is Elsie Lherisson, a missionary I'd featured on here a little while ago. (This is Elsie on the left.)
Please be in prayer for her and the children she serves, as they haven't been able to make contact with her, since the quake hit. Here is a note a friend posted on Facebook:
This is from the church who oversees Elsie's Ministry in Haiti - that we work to support:

The epicenter is in the same area that Elsie lives and where the ministry house is located and this is my greatest concern. Someone had been on the phone with Elsie and her adopted daughter Stephanie the moment the earthquake struck. She heard them scream and the line went dead. We have had no further contact despite hours of trying. The UN is saying right now that they can’t account for a large number of their own personnel.
In addition, the reports are that a lot of houses have fallen down the ravines and that a hospital in Petionville collapsed. Petionville is a few minutes drive from the ministry house. There are about 800 children and youth that go to Elsie’s ministry and most of them live in the poor shantytown ravines that are in that area. I’ve been up and down those ravines and I know that area well and if the devastation is as bad as it sounds….I fear the worst.
- Please pray for God’s mercy on Haiti and His Hand of protection over Elsie, Stephanie and everyone.
