January 12, 2010 – An Awful Day in Haiti

haiti1By Nathan White, BGAV Web Minister

Late in the afternoon January 12, 2010, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck the region, leaving total destruction in its path.

Hundreds of thousands lost their lives. Many more were left injured, homeless, and hopeless. Of those remaining, a great number were children.

Partnering with the Haiti Baptist Convention, Hungarian Baptist Aid and the Baptist World Alliance, Virginia Baptists are committed to restoring hope and a future to as many children as possible.

As a result of generous donations, the Source of Light Center, which serves as an orphanage, school and community center, was constructed and dedicated to the Lord in 2012.
