Yvonne Martin, Canadian medical missionary to Haiti (pictured on right), is dead. In Haiti with the Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada, Yvonne had arrived back in the country just 90 minutes before the quake.
"It is with a heavy heart that I share with you the death of our dear sister, Yvonne Martin. Yvonne passed away as the result of the earthquake in Haiti, where she had just arrived to do medical mission work for the fourth time," says a statement on the website of the Waterloo Mennonite Brethren Church.
She awaits the resurrection. Her good works go before her.
Meanwhile, Canadian Jason Krul describes the situation on the ground as "absolute, complete destruction". Jason is a pilot for the Mission Aviation Fellowship of Canada, a Christian aid organization that has worked in Haiti since 1986.
This world is a dangerous place. We should be kinder to each other.
And that's the way the Ball bounces.
