Haiti School Collapse, Death Toll at 82

On November 7th a school of about 500 collapsed due to poor construction in the shanty town of Petionville, Haiti located outside of the capital, Port-au-prince. The latest news at the time of this publication is that 82 teachers and students are dead. Many, many more people are physically injured or in the depths of morning the loss of a loved one who died at the Promesse Evangelique school.
Please pray for the injured and for the family's of those who were killed. Also pray for safety and guidance for the rescue workers who are still on the scene of the accident.
Haiti is especially close to our hearts at Go Do Something because we are associated with an orphanage as well as seven churches and schools up in the mountains of Haiti. While we are heartbroken for the people who are affected by this accident, but we are hopeful as well. Hopeful that God will use this incident to bring Haiti to the forefront of peoples prayers and ministries and that it will one day not be a country ensnared in Voodoo and darkness but full of Christians praising the living God.

    GDS Theme Passage

    "For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus
    Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for
    Jesus' sake. For God, who said, 'Let light shine
    out of darkness,' has shone in our hearts to give
    the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in
    the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure
    in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power
    belongs to God and not to us."
    - 2 Corinthians 4:5-7
