Tragedy in Haiti
I'm sure you are aware of the devestation in Haiti after the earthquake they endured.
If you are asking yourself how you can help, I would suggest The Global Orphan Project, which provides care for just over 2,000 children throughout Haiti. About 200 of those children were in homes near the epicenter of the earthquake and although we don't know yet about the well being of those children, the remaining 1,800+ orphans appear to be safe, including the 120 children at our church homes in Cavaillon. The Global Orphan Project is assembling a team to get to Haiti by Friday to assist in relief efforts. We pray for their safe travel.
What can you do??? PRAY. Seriously pray. Pray often. Pray a lot. Pray that God will be more real than ever before during this time of desperation.
Please take a moment to check out the Global Orphan Project's website ... if you are able, please give from the heart. This very worthy organization commits to use 100% of these funds for the emergency relief needs and the fallout from this disaster. They will do so with care.
But most important than this is praying - for the help that is on the way, for the volunteers who will be working diligently around the clock and for God's protection to the People of Haiti. Please pray!
