NOTE FROM ANDREW:  As I said last week, David Servant is a
friend of mine who runs Orphan's Tear and Heaven's Family. The
difference with his charity work is that he seeks out truly 
CHRISTIAN orphanages and ministries to support - and makes 
sure personally that everything is above board. That is why we 
trust him to get help and money to the right people when a disaster 
occurs. If you want a truly reliable way to get aid into the right 
hands, we recommend David's ministry very highly. Here is his 
latest update about Haiti-

GOOD NEWS from HAITI
-by David Servant.

I'm glad that I have some encouraging news to report from Haiti.
He is Alive! Yesterday morning I learned that a dear Haitian friend 
of thirty years, pastor Preval Meritil, is alive. He is not only alive, 
he is well. He has been using his old Land Rover to transport 
believers from Port-au-Prince, where relief efforts are bottlenecked 
at the airport, to his church compound up in the mountains, several 
hours away. Residents of Port-au-Prince are streaming from the  
city to escape scarcity of food and water, the stench of death, 
continued aftershocks, and the escalating violence. 

Safe Water for 10,000: 
HF International Director Chuck King successfully delivered 100 
Sawyer Water filters to our primary representative in the bordering 
nation of the Dominican Republic ($4,000 worth). Those filters can 
provide enough safe drinking water for 10,000 people each day. 
Initially, they are being distributed to several field hospitals where 
the need is so great. 

Food and Meds Delivered: 
Area representative James Jones traveled overland into Haiti to 
deliver some of those water filters, as well as food, bottled water 
and medical supplies provided by Heaven's Family. He has shipped 
similar supplies by air. He has also helped set up a MASH unit 
on Haiti's border that is treating the injured who are flown in by 
helicopter. He is bringing in thirty medical interns and ten surgeons 
from the  Dominican Republic. 

Our Orphanages: 
Until I spoke with pastor Preval, the only news we had about our 
two orphanages in Haiti was an unconfirmed report that eight 
orphans were found alive in Port-au-Prince. We anxiously waited 
for more news, but feared the worst. Praise God, however, pastor 
Preval reported that all the orphans are alive and uninjured, as 
well as the orphanage directors! He said their greatest need right 
now is for food. I'll let you know more details as further news comes 
in. Please keep praying for them.

Heading to Haiti: 
I'm currently in London on ministry business, but will arrive home 
this evening. I'll be leaving for Haiti early tomorrow morning along 
with HF staff member Jeff Trotter. We're hoping to reach our 
orphanage in Port-au-Prince (although that may be too dangerous 
at this time), as well as assess where we should focus next. 
Thanks so very much for your help once again. Your compassion 
is making a difference.
