Haiti on my Heart

A 13-month-old Haitian boy who weighs 5 pounds.

God drew my heart toward Haiti just 3 days prior to the earthquake.  I didn't know why, but now I do.  I had NO clue how bad things are for Haitians.  I had NO clue of how bad things were PRIOR to the earthquake, much less what things are like now for Haitians.  This 13-month-old boy who weighs 5 pounds didn't get this way from the earthquake.  He was suffering of malnutrition far before the earthquake ever hit. 

I won't get into a sermon about Haiti here.  If God lays Haiti on your heart, He will open your eyes to the painful truth of life in Haiti. 

I would love for you to join me in prayer for the people of Haiti.  I've learned far more than my mind can handle about Haiti.  It is hard to live our comfortable American life knowing there are people all over the world suffering more than we can even begin to fathom.

Today Haiti is heavy on my heart...and it's been this way since January 12...and I'm afraid it's not going away anytime soon.

Please pray for Haiti!

Here are 2 painless ways to offer life-saving help and eternal hope to Haiti:
Give .30 cents to feed a Haitian a healthy meal along with the gospel!
Give a $5 Donation! to offer Eternal Hope to Haiti!

Help Haiti!

I was wondering where you got the shirts you are wearing in the pic. My 9 year-old daughter has been trying raise money for Haiti since the earthquake and I think she would wear a shirt like that with pride. We've adopted from foster care and she is lobbying for a sibling from Haiti. It has been heartwarming to see her response, from her giving her Christmas money to soliciting for donations. Thanks. rsloup@cox.net

I feel EXACTLY the same way! We are in the process of adopting from Bulgaria and are bringing our daughter home in April...this all happened on our first trip to visit her, and as our church had some adoptive parents going through the process in Haiti, it has really hit home!! I too have never felt such distress over the situation...IT IS CRITICAL for God's people to stand in the gap for these little ones, who have NO VOICE! We're praying for Haiti!

Lorriane- hope over to my blog and help me help Haitian orphans. I'm doing a formula drive right now- you can donate on my blog (Paypal) or send me POWDERED formula directly to my house. We are taking a team in a few weeks to deliver formula to Pignon Haiti. The photos you show are exactly why I'm working so hard for this particular orphanage- Haiti Home of Hope. Let me know if you want to help spread the word on your blog!!!! The blog post title- 1 Bin + 1 Orphanage + 1 Heart= Crazy Love
