Help Needed for Haiti!!

Please be in prayer for the country of Haiti and the work that Brent Gambrell Ministries has been doing there for many years. As you know, a 7.0 earthquake struck near the city of Carrefour, which is close to Port Au Prince.

What you may not know, is that Mike and Missy Wilson's "daughter", Katie Erie, left last Monday for Carrefour, to do a six month internship at the orphanage where Mike and Missy are adopting a five year old girl named Tia. As of 1:00 a.m. on Wednesday, we have not been able to contact Katie or the orphanage where Tia is staying. You can only imagine how these parents are feeling knowing that their children are possibly in harm's way. But, we are trusting the Lord to be our Hope and Peace and give us the grace to move through the steps required to locate Katie and Tia.

We do know that the New Missions Team that is currently in Haiti is safe. We have received an email from Dr. Bernard, who runs the orphanage. He was slightly injured but is safe. He does not know the state of the orphanage at this time, but plans to set out at morning light to travel from Port Au Prince to Carrefour to see if there is any damage/injuries there. We are praying the Lord will give Dr. Bernard strength and wisdom and that God's little angels at the Creche are in good health and good spirits.

For the BGM staff, please be in continued prayer for them. Brent and Mike will leave for Miami tomorrow afternoon with hopes of getting into Haiti as soon as possible. We are still not certain of the condition of the airport in Port Au Prince. They are willing to go through the Dominican Republic or even get there by boat if possible! (Anyone out there with a private plane that can get them there?)

Please go to to see how you can assist us in getting relief materials to Haiti. You can make monetary donations through any Regions Bank. Simply make deposits into the BGM Haiti Relief Fund.

We also need medical supplies. Those can be sent to us at Brent Gambrell Ministries, 501 Metroplex Drive, Suite 112, Nashville, Tennessee 37211. A list of items needed can be found on the website.

Please also share this page or the Brent Gambrell website with your friends through Facebook, Myspace or Twitter. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much!
