For the next 2 Sundays our church...along with many other churches in America...will be taking up an offering to send to Haiti. We have partnered with a missions group called
It's awesome to see God's people come together and step up and help. We see that a lot during disasters...the world knows they can depend on the church to be there. To give...to love and to help heal the broken hearts. I pray that during this time many will see God's love and he will get ALL the glory. But let us not forget there are disasters right next door to us...a broken marriage...a sick child...lost job...depression...and hurting people who need us to reach out to them.
I challenge you to pray about what God is leading you to give to help Haiti in the next few weeks and pray for IDES as they minister to the lost in Haiti. I also challenge you (and Myself especially) to reach out to your neighbors...there might be a disaster that you can't see from your house.
p.s. does anyone else want to adopt an orphan from there every time you see them on TV?
