Praying for Haiti

Thursday, January 14, 2010

I know many of you can relate when I say that my heart is breaking for the people of Haiti following one of the worst earthquakes in history. Not only does my heart break - but I so desperately want to do more!

As I think through all these feelings of helplessness there are a few things that we can do to help.

1.) Pray. Pray for the people of Haiti – for the pastors and missionaries who already live in that country – pray for those providing relief efforts.

2.) Give. Find a place to give $5 or more. I know there are some wonderful organizations in which we can trust to use our money very wisely – organizations like World Vision, Samaritans Purse, Compassion, and even the Red Cross.

3.) Serve. All though it is true that all of us can’t jump on a plane and travel to Haiti this week to help – we can find a place to help here at home. Find a place to donate some time and give back to your community. You might even find a way to help volunteer for on organization sending relief to Haiti.

By praying, giving, and serving we can make a huge impact on the world around us! Don’t let this tragedy pass without allowing God the opportunity to use you to impact others for Him.
