Christian Aid prayer and action:

Continuing support for Haiti following the earthquake and floods

Mark Escott, Harold Taylor’s son-in -law, kindly offered to run the ‘Hitchin Hard Half Marathon’ on October 17 for the Haiti earthquake appeal. Then they cancelled the event! However, he is going to run it anyway! Please pray for Mark as half marathons are challenging but without the normal support structure this will be more demanding. You can donate to the appeal at: http://www.kings-langley-churches.org.uk/ChristianAid.html .

The latest update from Haiti gives some detail about the issues that those seeking to get aid through are facing. Please pray for them. ‘Extensive damage to infrastructure, as well as serious security risks due to gangs operating in the area, have made it challenging for aid agencies to reach the worst affected regions safely. There have been reports of hijacked aid trucks and kidnappings, which have hampered the ability to get resources where they are most needed. Our Security team are working closely with the team to manage the risk which have been identified to help them stay safe and minimise any risks involved.’
