False Alarm

FYI - we had a false alarm this afternoon where we were going to make a run for the airport to try to catch the return leg of a Canadian aid flight.  Some people may have gotten word about this, but we ARE NOT GOING RIGHT NOW.  We didn't have enough time to physically get there before the flight back.

For now, we're sitting tight til Monday morning.  Monday we'll go to the Port-au-Prince to the airport, send a couple of people to the embassy to check in with them physically (if we can't reach them first - still trying), and wait at the airport for a flight Tuesday.

Stay tuned, we'll let you know as information develops.  For now, we're not going anywhere.


  1. One night a man had a dream. He dreamed He was walking along the beach with the LORD. Across the sky flashed scenes from His life. For each scene He noticed two sets of footprints in the sand. One belonging to Him and the other to the LORD.

    When the last scene of His life flashed before Him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of His life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times of His life.

    This really bothered Him and He questioned the LORD about it. LORD you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me.

    The LORD replied, my precious, precious child, I Love you and I would never leave you! During your times of trial and suffering when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.

    I have tried to find words of encouragement and my thoughts kept going back to this poem. Always remember the Lord is with you. I pray for everyone's safe return home.

  2. Hi Gerry and gang

    We're thankful you and the team are safe. We are praying for you all and your safe return.

    Henry and Edna

  3. Hi Jim Steer: I am very very glad to hear that you and your team are safe. My thoughts and prayers go out to each and everyone of you. I was shocked when I heard Jim's name being mentioned on the radio! "Councillor Jim Steer from Lytton is safe." (on my drive home from work) I had no idea there was an earthquake! I just finished reading the articles and lookng at the pictures of the devastation, despair, hurt,pain and suffering my heart goes out to the people and pray that they find the strength to overcome this. Jim you are the talk of the town everywhere I go someone is buzzing about you! They are all wishing you a safe return home and so am I. Take care and bye for now.
    From - Rita McKay - Lytton, B.C.
