It’s heartbreaking to see the images that are coming to us from Haiti, and difficult to fully comprehend such devastation. But along with this tragedy comes an opportunity—our opportunity to be the Church. As fellow believers, we can stand together and actively display the love of Jesus to the people of Haiti.
At LifeChurch.tv, we’re joining forces with other churches to offer prayer and financial support for disaster relief efforts. We’re partnering with Convoy of Hope and Samaritan’s Purse in their response, and providing an opportunity for our people to give on top of what we’ve already committed as a church.
Also, Compassion International is raising funds to re-equip their local support structure and to provide for the needs of the more than 64,000 children that they assist in Haiti. Included in those 64,000 children is Staci, one of the several children that Craig and Amy support through Compassion.
We’re also taking part in a special night of prayer with churches around the world. You’re welcome to join us, either individually or as a church, and if you’re on Twitter, please use the hashtag #pray4Haiti to help spread the word. We’ll be meeting online at 7:00pm CST this Monday, January 18.
