G.O. Help Haiti

(From an e-mail I received) Today we continued to fly in supplies to Haiti. Because other aid agencies have now arrived in Jacmel, we directed all flights to the town of Leogane. Leogane is located closer to the epicenter of the quake and lost the hospital located in that town. We continue to provide needed supplies to Leogane. Today, we learned that the planes were landing on a road in a valley between two mountains. There have been so many planes landing there that air traffic control has given it an airport designation.
Donations have begun to arrive in the warehouse in Louisville. Churches have been arranging collections of supplies for transport to Haiti via Santiago. Special offerings are being collected for assistance in the relief. All of this is possible because you have partnered with us.
This is a wonderful christian organization.

In 1988 Dick went on a two week mission trip to Haiti that changed his life forever.

We love these people!

Haitians are hard workers and don't deserve this happening to them..

1 Timothy 2:1, 3-4 (NLT)

I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people.

Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf,

and give thanks for them.

This is good and pleases God our Savior,

who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth.

Thanks for posting this video. What a tragedy. We had a second collection at church last week for Haiti. We also gave through Cory's employer. I wish we could do more :)

The people of Haiti have really suffered through this terrible tragedy. I have prayed for them continually, and have donated through my own church. It is good to see the response of caring people from all over the world going to Haiti to help.

Love and Blessings, Maree!
