Last year I had the privilege of teaching this story to kids in Good News Club and once again my heart went out to the people of Haiti.
Unfortunately, I don't have cable now, so have not been able to follow the story of the earthquake as closely as I would like to, but my heart is breaking for these people! It's funny that as I was sending an e-mail to my sister about the mission's efforts during this crisis, she too was busy blogging about her memories and thoughts on Haiti. She quoted Joel Rosenberg: "Scriptures tell us in Matthew 24 and Luke 21 that terrible earthquakes and other natural disasters will occur in the “last days”….things will get worse, but this is a catastrophe of biblical proportions….may followers of Jesus Christ respond with prayer and practical assistance."
Right now, my family is short on funds, but I am planning even now how to help. This may become a family and homeschooling endeavor to aid the actual mission that I learned about as a young girl. If I am able, I will be blogging about that effort and I ask you to follow along and perhaps help. Please pray for the people in Haiti. Pray for wisdom and strength for the missionaries that are there. Pray for God's peace to overtake the chaos. Pray that through this, God will be known.
