No matter what else might be happening, our attention MUST go to the events in Haiti. Our hearts HURT seeing all the wounded, including tiny babies, and piles of bodies. Already the poorest country in the western hemisphere, Haiti is the size of Massachusetts with a population of 9 million. It is difficult for me to fathom even their normal daily existence, let alone THIS. We are ALL extremely blessed in the US, even those who are struggling and have limited funds have great blessings here.
Many countries and organizations have jumped right in to take aid as quickly as possible. God BLESS all those in Haiti and all those assisting! We are all children of God, and only sharing HIS love.
From Joyce Meyer’s Hand of Hope Ministries, here is a link: joycemeyer Get involved: Supplies are needed immediately in #Haiti. Here’s a list of items and shipping information. http://ow.ly/WPOc Print off the list and the address. Feel free to share this information.
Anything and everything helps! As little as 7 cents will purchase a small nutrient packet to re-hydrate someone; $700 will purchase a tent. Donating through Joyce I KNOW they already have people on the ground helping and money is used to the best advantage.
Remembering that Jesus said “If you have done it for the least of these, you have done it to me.”
We don’t have to look far today to know how we can be a blessing!
