Official Statement on Haitian Earthquake
We are shocked and crushed with the news of the tragic loss of life caused by the recent 7.0 earthquake in Haiti. Our prayers cry out with heart felt pain for the families who are missing loved ones. As we see Satan’s tragic devastation we look forward to the soon coming of Christ. Then catastrophes like this will never occur again. Our loved ones in Haiti who have lost their lives will be reunited with us again.
We are declaring a day of prayer for Haiti in all of our churches this Sabbath, January 16, 2010. In addition a special offering will be collected this Sabbath, January 16, 2010 in all our churhces in GNYC. February 7, 2009 is designated by the Atlantic Union Conference as a union wide day to collect a special offering for assistance in disaster relief.
We met with a special Haiti Disaster Planning Committee to plan our response. Our effort is to send a team of three experts to Haiti this weekend to establish communications and assist in enabling the Church to function there for the relief effort.
Richard A. Marker, President
