From Dr. Anthony Paul, via e-mail (Wednesday, January 20):
We are OK. It was a real one—all systems went down. Everyone here is on edge since that aftershock. No one wants to go inside their houses or even close. We were unable to communicate with you until late last night.
There are so many testimonies as to how the Lord is working in this mission of mercy. We had a very good day yesterday and a beautiful evening when three young men appeared at our compound—these three young men were baptized when NAPS came in 1998. They had remained faithful and are now studying Theology and medicine. However, their testimonies bring chills to our bones as to how they escaped the quake. One of them was in the third story of his school building in a class of 70--he was the only one that survived. We had a very good evening with them, and they all have dedicated the rest of their lives to working for the Lord. We are taking them home today to La Chapelle, where we built the elementary school years ago.
Please give my regards to all. Thank God for my Creole; it is getting me into places that most cannot get to.
The NAPS team returned safely to Huntsville, Sunday evening, January 24. They departed from the Dominican Republic, arriving at the Huntsville International Airport, in Huntsville, Alabama, at 8:15 p.m. Please continue to keep the people of Haiti and the many Adventist disaster relief efforts currently underway in your prayers.
