Haiti: Beloved Chldren of God
Thanks to Jesse at The Trailblazers blog for pointing this out. This video brings some sanity after the words of Pat Robertson and others rather sick theology that God is punishing Haiti for their sin.
Also, I recieved great news from Luceanna at Oasis for children, an orphanage in Haiti. She wrote:
(Luceanna if you do not want me to print this I will remove this) Please help in any way you can. There is a donation button at the site.
GREAT NEWS FROM HAITI; AFTER MANY CALLS, TEARS, AND WORRY, WE FINALLY GOT A CONNECTION IN HAITI AND THEY FINALLY DID CONFIRM THAT THE CHILDREN IN THE ORPHANAGE ARE ALL STILL ALIVE. I WAS TOLD THAT IT IS A MIRACLE HOW THEY MANAGED TO COME OUT OK.
THE ORPHANAGE, THE CHURCH, AND THE SCHOOL WAS DESTROYED SO THE CHILDREN HAVE BEEN STAYING OUTDOORS. WE HAVE TO STILL BE IN PRAYER BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO ACCESS TO WATER AND FOOD HAS JUST ABOUT RUN OUT COMPLETELY.
OUR NEXT CHALLENGE IS TO SOMEHOW GET TO THE CHILDREN WITH WHAT THEY NEED. WE ARE BUSY WORKING AROUND THE CLOCK LOOKING, MAKING CALLS, AND TRYING TO GET THROUGH TO SOMEONE THAT IS ALREADY ON GROUND TO GO BRING THE CHILDREN FOOD AND WATER UNTIL I CAN GET THERE. I'M STILL HAVING TROUBLE GETTING INTO THE COUNTRY. MY GOAL IS TO GET THERE AS SOON AS I AM ABLE. I PRAY THAT WHEN I DO GO THAT I AM ABLE TO GO WITH ENOUGH FUNDS TO TAKE CARE OF THE CHILDREN.
GOD IS STILL GOOD! THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS. PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY AND I ASK YOU TO PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING A DONATION, WE ARE CERTAINLY GOING TO NEED IT IN A BIG WAY.
