Help for Haiti

We are all watching the news about the earthquake in Haiti, and our hearts break for those who have lost loved ones and have been injured and left homeless. There are many charities we may turn to to give help, and a good website to go to is: Charity Navigator. There you will find a list of charities that have a history of working in Haiti, along with some very good tips for donating safely and effectively. We need not feel helpless, for we serve the God of the universe, and He was not surprised by this earthquake. We may go to Him in prayer and He will hear our pleas for help for the Haitian people as well as those from other countries who were caught in this tragedy.
Some quick links: Compassion, Samaritan's Purse, American Red Cross, World Vision, and Mercy Ships.
He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
Psalm 91:4

Well, I have been praying for those poor people. My heart just goes out to them. I feel so helpless, not knowing what I can do besides pray and donate money hoping it gets to the right people. It is so sad to see them going through this.

You are so right - pray we must and help however we can. My heart breaks and at the same time feel very blessed with what I have around me. God is good and he will work in their lives. Thank you for visiting my little blog. We have a lot in common!
