Curt is in Haiti.

After much prayer and God’s clear direction and guidance, Curt was asked to go into Haiti and will begin emergency water relief.  He will be working in collaboration with various ministries to begin providing safe water sources to those suffering from the devastating earthquake of January 12th.  He will be using the Free Methodist Mission’s drill rig and initially will need to find adequate fuel for the drilling efforts and some security provisions to have in place for the equipment and crew.  Healing Hands International has sent in bits and other supplies that should arrive in Gonaives in a few weeks.  Redwood Church and other partners are supplying and channeling the needed funds to the project initially.

Curt and Mary have been overwhelmed at the kindness and generosity of friends and strangers alike, who have purchased supplies, prayed and given support to them and their family as their hearts have been touched so deeply by the tragedy in Haiti.  For those unaware, Curt has spent over 30 years drilling in Haiti and serving the poor there.  He and his family worked as missionaries in La Gonave when his children were young, during part of that service.

Curt sent this  this message the day before he left for Haiti (2 days ago):

“I ask for your prayers. This is a very challenging and daunting task, so as you think of me, please say a prayer for me, and also for Mary and my family. This affects us all, even though I am the only one going on this trip. And Jan 31st will be our 40th wedding anniversary. But as we think about it, this is appropriate for us, to try and help the needy, many of whom are our friends, after 30 years of involvement in Haiti. Thanks,  -Curt King”
