Please Help

As all of you know, disaster has struck in Haiti. They are expecting over 100,000 people to have been killed by the horrible earthquake. There are SO many ways y'all can help, an easy way is to text "Haiti" to 90999 to give $10 to the Red Cross. It will be on your next phone bill. OR you can text "disaster" to 90999 to give $10 to Compassion's disaster relief program. They will be working directly with the local churches who know where these families live and will be providing immediate relief to them. OR, and probably most importantly, we can PRAY. The power of prayer can be unbelievable.

A very special woman by the name of Kelly, has been a part of compassion and is doing an INCREDIBLE thing on her blog. For every person that comments on her Haiti blog AND HAS DONATED, she is giving $1 to the compassion organization. This will be up to $1000. How many of us can say we're giving away that amount of money?? I know I sure can't. To learn more, go visit her blog at $10 doesnt seem like a whole lot, but think about it, if 40 us of did this, that little amount of money could be a WHOLE MEAL to a family that has lost EVERYTHING. Here's a direct Bible verse from Kelly's blog: "If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth." 1 John 3:17-18
