Being Christ's Hands - To Haiti

Missions.

Orphans.

The Poor.

The Needy.

The Lost.

....all are passions of mine. All are things that tug on my heart.



In light of the recent devastation in Haiti, those very passions have been on my heart a bit more than usual. A country already riddled with poverty, malnutrition, sickness, and Vodou religion, is in need of help. Since Tuesday, when the 7.0 earthquake hit, people have been sleeping in the streets alongside dead bodies, people have been hearing the cries of people trapped under rubble and there is no food or water to go around. On that horrifying day, homes and towns were destroyed and hundreds of thousands lost their lives. Where did they go? is the question on my
mind.

Looking at the country's history of negative response to Christ and Christianity, and its open arms to Vodou, it doesn't look good. Yet with a crisis like this, there is no better time to reach out than now! Of course, Haiti is in dire need of medical help and financial relief, but what they need the most is spiritual help. They need Jesus!

Pray how you can help! Pray how you can reach out to the broken, the poor, the suffering, the homeless, the sick, the orphaned, the widowed, the childless, and the LOST! Find ways to give. Find ways to go. Be the arms, legs, mouths, ears, eyes, and hands of Jesus Christ.

Help Haiti. Help the world.

James 1:27
"Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world."
