My wife sent me an email last week on the needs of orphans in Haiti. As she read certain posts online, her heart was moved with compassion for the needs of these. As we are urged by James, caring for orphans is the essence of Christianity working itself out in love (James 1:27).
Here are some interesting sites to consider for this need…
Here’s the questions my wife asked me in email (taken from the T4A site)…
• What can we do over the next several weeks so that we don’t forget about the people of Haiti?
• What will our church be able to do if/when Humanitarian Parole is granted for Haiti’s orphans?
• Where in Haiti can we send our people to serve on short-term trips come summer?
• How many people can our church send?
Oh Phil, will God call us to sacrifice greatly is the midst of this devastation?
I hope you can sense the compassion in her pleading. Let’s pray for God’s mercy and pray for wisdom in our actions.
