Help for Haiti

What can I do?   TV headlines, news articles, and live video feeds keep us informed about what’s happening in Haiti.  But beyond keeping us informed, we also begin to feel helpless.   These actions hardly seem original, but are, nonetheless, necessary:  

  1. Pray.  Pray for the children.  Families.  Missionaries.  Safety for relief workers, our Marines, EMTs, etc.  Successful relief efforts.  Clean water.  Medical assistance.  For the gospel to take root in the hearts of the Haitian people. Life. 
  2. Give:   This may be more difficult for some.  But in Haiti, a little can go a long way.  $10 is a start.   Here’s some organizations experienced in getting help quickly to the  needy:   Compassion InternationalSamaritan’s PurseWorld Vision  
  3. Make it personal.  I don’t know anyone in Haiti.  But as I read missionary updates, prayer requests, blogs from Haiti, or faith-based  reports, the story becomes personal.  Names, needs, photos.   So, as I read, my spirit groans… in deeper, more effective intercession.
