Show Notes

Thank you for joining us for a bonus episode of On the Ground with Samaritan’s Purse, hosted by Kristy Graham. In the early morning hours of Saturday, August 14, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake rocked the southern region of Haiti—destroying communities and trapping people underneath the debris.

On August 15, the Samaritan’s Purse DC-8 cargo plane airlifted more than a dozen disaster relief personnel, along with 31 tons of relief supplies, including emergency shelter material, water filtration units, and critical medical supplies.

In the moments before the DC-8 departed from Greensboro, North Carolina, Ken Isaacs, the Vice President of Programs and Government Relations, shared current updates to encourage listeners to pray specifically.

Please be in prayer for our teams on the ground in Haiti and for the many mourning families in the wake of this devastating earthquake.
