How can we go on with business as usual when there is so much suffering in Haiti?
I am asking you to do something to help our brothers and sisters in this poor country.
What can you do?
2. Spread the word on giving to help.
3. Give. Just this morning I sent an article about ADRA to my sister in law and she responded. She has been praying the Lord would show her where to give her contribution.
I am adding the information I received this morning and in this article you will find a link to donate through ADRA. If you don’t like ADRA find another place to give of your money.
- Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) is heavily involved in response to the disaster in Haiti . Contributions are needed and can be made at www.adra.org/haiti or by calling 1-800-424-ADRA (2372). We have 1,000 Adventist churches in the area and about 330,000 members. We know that two of our largest churches near the presidential palace were destroyed. Five congregations met in these churches. One of those churches had a school and there are serious concerns for the children who were attending school at that time. It is believed that the Union president is alive but contact has not been made. The Union office is not damaged seriously. One Union worker was killed when a wall fell on him. There are two Adventist missionaries in Haiti and they are alright but shaken. Serious damage has been sustained by our university but the lawns of our university and hospital campuses are being used by many for a sleeping area as a place of safety. Fortunately, despite the economic challenges, our churches did take out earthquake insurance and that will help some. ADRA will be working to assist members and the public alike. Your prayers for the people of Haiti and those who are working to assist them would be much appreciated. DO NOT gather food or clothing as it will be impossible to get it to Haiti . ADRA will use the cash to accomplish what is needed at this time.
