Hope for Haiti
On a busy weekday ten months ago, a devastating earthquake struck the tiny nation of Haiti. People were getting off work, children were finishing their school day, and citizens were in the street markets when the earth began to shake violently. A mere 30 seconds later, 530,000 people were dead or injured, and more than a quarter of a million homes and businesses were destroyed. For Haiti, already the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, the chaos and tragedy was beyond comprehension... But not beyond the reach of our God.
Meet the Missionaries
Don’t make Scott and Janet Daughtry out to be heroes of the faith: they’re not buying it. If they are anything more than ordinary Christians fulfilling a God-called task, Scott says, then other Christians will avoid taking on similar tasks. The Daughtrys are on-site coordinators for North Carolina Baptist disaster relief efforts in Haiti, operating from a rented house on a 66-acre missionary compound owned by Global Outreach. The duo has hosted numerous mission teams: feeding, housing, coordinating and transporting them as they conduct medical clinic and construction projects in the area north of Port-au-Prince.
