Says Licia on her rescue-center blog, “This is Darlens. His age is unknown. He weighs 11 pounds. His mother was going into Port-au-Prince, the day of the earthquake, to give blood for a family member that was having surgery. She never returned. They never found her. The father was killed when a house fell on him. An aunt brought him to the clinic to see if we could take him. He is severely malnourished.”
“P’ap jamn sispann priye,” Licia writes. “Don’t ever stop praying.”
Licia offers us another Haitian hymn. This is #114 in Chants D’esperance (Spiritual Songs):
Cher Senge, kinbin min-m, ede moiun rete fem
Dear Lord, hold my hand. Help me to stay strong.
