Today was the one year anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti. We went downtown Port-au-Prince to Champ de Mars for a memorial service. It was a large gathering of people in the road and preaching, remembering those who died and thanking God for our lives.

Later, we went for a ride to the mass grave site for those who died in the earthquake. Over 200,000 people are buried there. Rows and rows of small crosses were lined up, and a large cross which read “12 Janvye. Nou pap jamn bliye” (January 12 We won’t ever forget).
