Help for Haiti
Check out Baptist Haiti Mission - a worthwhile place to send your donation money for relief efforts. And, or course, the Red Cross. A local charity is taking supply donations at two grocery stores tonight here in town, and we are contributing to that one, and it was exciting to get my older two girls involved in it.
I explained as best as I could the situation to Charity and Lottie, how Haiti had just suffered a big earthquake, and how the people are poor. That they need food and clothes. That we need to show them Christ's love by giving them what we have to help meet their needs. And the girls understood. Charity has taken it to heart. Her mission this afternoon was to find things to give to them.
Of course, there's a list to stick to. And all the products must be new. But all of that CVS-ing has come in handy!
Please get involved. Donate. Give what you have. Thousands are suffering, children have been left orphaned, parents childless, babies suffering, many are grieving, homeless, hungry, thirsty, fatigued, and injured. But most importantly, pray for their souls. And I encourage you to send the bulk of your donation money to Christian organizations, who are not only concerned with the physical needs of the people, but also their souls. They are not only giving food and water, but giving these people the Bread of Life! Pray for the missionaries, for the people of Haiti, and that many souls would be saved!
God is good, and praise Him, He will be glorified.
"Whoever gives to the poor will not want,
but he who hides his eyes will get many a curse."
