I just got word from Pastor Wilbert Placide our director of operations. He is safe and his family.. Word from all our staff is they are safe but still a few we haven't heard from.. Still not phone communication... To summarize they have been receiving some relief help but the need is so overwhelming there isn't enough for everyone.. Over 3/4's of the houses are destroyed in Jacmel.. There are makeshift hospitals set up where people are getting help.. The are still receiving after shocks and people are afraid to go into any buildings even if they appear to be solid..they are still sleeping outside..
........ I just got a message from another friend that the last after shock measured a 6.1 which caused more damage.. It was too much for our Diquinni school which has now sustained damage.. .. half of the 4000 police officers in PAP have been killed.. Several were guys that I knew...

I was scheduled to go in on Monday the 25th and have called all reservations for the team that were going but I feel I will be going in ..... I haven't heard if my ticket with AC is still good or if they can even fly in there by next week... I will have a satellite phone with me to make contact back home... I will post as soon as I hear more...
