After the massive earthquake that ripped across Haiti in January 2010, Living Water International’s work there went into overdrive—and that’s an understatement. The need for clean drinking water was more desperate than ever, with cholera running rampant through overcrowded tent cities and water trucks unable to keep up with demand. After the earthquake, Living Water’s output for rehabilitated wells more than doubled (from around 175 to around 450), plus the addition of a new drilling program in Port au Prince and another drill rig headed to Cap Haitian for a new drilling program there.

Cordelia Morales lives in El Danto, a Nicaraguan community in Somatillo. Their open well with a rope pump was always broken, and when it didn’t work, they suffered. That's how Living Water International met Cordelia. She told us about their broken well, and we replaced the pump. But the work didn’t stop there. We began to visit again.

Next week, some of us will hop a plane (or two) to Haiti. We'd love your prayers. Ask God to introduce us to those he wants us to meet. Ask him to show us what breaks his heart there, what brings him joy there and where he's already working.
