Earthquake in Haiti

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Haiti as they struggle to recover from Tuesday’s earthquake. We especially pray for families who are still waiting to hear from loved ones and for the continued successful rescue efforts of survivors. The rebuilding may be tireless and long, but the United States will do all we can to help the people of Haiti move forward from this tragedy to rebuild their communities and their lives.
