We've all seen the stories in the news marking the six month anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti. The reality for the Haitian people is really worse than any news story or a photo can portray. Not only are so many still living daily with unbelievable physical losses; the deeper emotional losses will leave lifelong scars for so many.
My wife and I visited Passion City Church this past Sunday night here in Atlanta. As we sang "I believe in miracles... With God, all things are possible", I was struck with the significance of this for Haiti. He really is this country's only hope. In retrospect, I was also impacted by these words on a much more personal level. Upon my recent return home, I have gone to work for a home health company here in Atlanta in an attempt to help provide some of my own support for the work in Haiti. Noble? Perhaps. A sign of faith in God and His provision? I'm not so sure.
I have often lamented that by spending so much time in Haiti, I am unable to devote very much attention to the dreaded part of this mission - Fund raising. I am trying so hard to have the mindset that instead of asking for money, it is giving others the opportunity to help reach people until they are physically able to go themselves. Being home for a few weeks should be the opportune time to devote myself to this facet of my mission. Instead, I am working for enough to support the here and now.
Wrong road Randy! With God, all things are possible, and yes, I do believe in miracles. As we visited Community Church Sunday morning, our family was overwhelmed by their love, their prayers, and their incredibly generous support. For me it was a much needed slap upside the head from God saying "I will continue to take care of you", just follow Me. Or, keep saying yes.
I am praying that God will provide 400 people that will commit to supporting this work in Haiti with a $10 donation each month. While I would love to have you as part of this group, the impact it you will have on Haiti will be immeasurable. I will be providing frequent progress updates on this. If you or your company would like to act as five or ten donors, we won't refuse it!
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment below with your commitment, Then send your donation each month to:
