Haiti: Prayer plus action

Today I have chosen to repost a blog from our Arlington Campus Pastor Edward Hunt.

God’s compassion is to flow…

It is time for the church to rise up! We are to be the conduit of God’s love and compassion for the Haitian people. By now most of you have heard about the devastating earthquake that stunned Haiti.

Here is a brief description from an article I just read, “Haitians piled bodies along the devastated streets of their capital Wednesday…death was everywhere…bodies of tiny children were piled next to schools. Corpses of woman lay on the street with stunned expressions frozen on their faces as flies began to gather.” Their President, Rene Preval, believes that thousands were killed.

We have to respond with prayer and care. I know many people are asking how they can help. I urge you to pray diligently and pray specifically about giving financially. Over the years I have worked with two amazing organizations that care for people in the name of Christ. They both share and show the love of Christ to people all over the world.

Global Aid Network (a part of Campus Crusade)

Samaritan’s Purse

Please don’t allow the comforts of our lives here to numb us to the pain there!

Additionally, thanks to Tyler Braun, here are four additional ways that you can give:

World Vision

One Day’s Wages

MercyCorps

Medical Teams International

  1. Lot’s of great places to give. I’m glad so many organizations are stepping forward to meet the urgent need.

  2. Hi,
    I am interested in joining a group of people who are going to travel to Haiti to assist in the care of children.
    Please advise of info you have.

    Thank You
