haiti

I'm off to Haiti tomorrow.  I've been reading for months, watching news reports and online clips all week, and praying all along.  I don't think I'm prepared.  Honestly.  I think there's no way for me to prepare myself to encounter such suffering.  My prayers have all started with, "God, you're in control." I think that as long as I keep praying that, it'll be all the preparation I need.

I'm sure I'll have a lot more to post once I'm there (look for updates and pictures here and on twitter -- @bpcrook), and certainly once I return, but for now, I'm just too filled with emotions to put down a simple thought.  So pray for us, pray for the people of Haiti, and get to know more about their situation, because we're going to be helping them -- and they will be helping us.

Heavenly Father,
You are in control.
I pray that we trust that completely.
I pray that we receive your love,
and that we empty ourselves of love for others.
Amen.

  1. I just found this blog. Good job Brian. I hope you and Father are doing ok. I do not tweet! Remember that God is with you. Just lift up evrything---that is what I tried to do. It is not about being strong and courageous like some people think. It is about admitting our weakness and that we are nothing without him. TP
