On the Sunday after the hurricane devastated their country, Haitian survivors of Hurricane Matthew put on their best clothes and made their way to sing praise and pray in ruined churches. Authorities were still unsure the extent of the damage, but that tens of thousands of homes were destroyed and hundreds were killed. Despite health issues and a lack of food and other basic necessities, Elsie Pierre said she believed it was a divine miracle that she and her loved ones survived. She said, “If God wasn’t protecting us we’d all be gone today, blown into the ocean or up into the mountains.”–By Jim L. Wilson & Jim Sandell
