Prayer Service Held For Haiti Victims

A prayer vigil held Friday evening will benefit the victims of the Haitian earthquake.

The Functional Literacy Ministry (FLM) of Haiti will host “To Haiti With Love” at the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary to pray for physical and emotional healing for survivors of the disaster.

FLM of Haiti Executive Director Leon Pamphile says his organization will continue its mission of providing school services to Haitians at a time when the education system has suffered a major blow.

“The need there right now has multiplied,” says Pamphile. “A lot of the Catholic schools and the public schools have been destroyed, so the need for education is greater than ever.”

Pamphile says FLM of Haiti will also buy medical supplies and food with any donations they may receive Friday.

Pamphile says the service will feature music and prayer, starting at 7:00 p.m.
