Haiti and Earthquake

The above picture is of the children sleeping outside because of the aftershocks being felt.

I know that you have been hearing about and watching the devastation experienced by the country of Haiti as the result of the earthquake. Watching what has transpired in Haiti has weighed heavily on my heart. My prayer since Tuesday, day of the earthquake, has been, God what can I do?. My prayer has been answered and I am heading back to Haiti and in particularly to God's Littlest Angels Orphanage. Praise God for opening the doors to allow me to go and offer my support for the people of Haiti, and the Children & Staff of the orphanage.
I will be in Haiti on Tuesday of this week. Praise God! I will post if possible while I am in Haiti.
If you do not see a post, please know that we are in need of additional prayers. I have been told that the supply of food, water, and fuel is extremely low. All water is brought into the orphanage by truck, normally they receive at least 10 truckloads in a week, this has been compromised as a result of this earthquake. Their food supply is also very low and is being rationed. Pray for some relief concerning these matters.

The orphanage building is intact, still experiencing aftershocks, which I understand are a little unnerving. The children are all safe and as of this morning all of the Haitian Nannies have been accounted for. Some have lost family members and some have lost their homes. Pray for them, please.
This is information provided by Dixie Bickel, director to the orphanage:
If you would like to help, here are some suggestions:
We are collecting donations now and will be sending a shipping container to Haiti as soon as we can. For the orphanage, we always need powdered formula, diapers, baby wipes, baby cereal, infant tylenol, infant and childrens vitamins, and baby care items such as lotion, powder, baby shampoo. We also hope to be able to assist the surrounding community with clothing, medical supplies, household items, hygiene items such as soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, blankets and towels. We have also set up a fund for earthquake relief for our staff and surrounding community. Many of our staff will need assistance with home repair and funeral expenses. Donations should be sent to:
