Helping the People of Haiti

How to even find the words to say about the devestation in Haiti...  It would be so easy to just not look at the pictures or to read the stories...  But if we don't do something, who will?...

As some of you have already said on your blogs, oh, to be there to use your arms to help.  This rarely happens, but today T woke up crying inconsolably for a bit and I wasn't quite sure what was wrong.  While holding him I thought how blessed I was to have him safe in my arms, and secondly to know that whatever was bothering him, I could easily take care of it  (he had a sore bottom and was hungry).  But today in Haiti so many (even more than usual) don't have access to the necessities of life.  Shelter. Food. Water. Health care.

So what can we do?

We can pray.

We can give money to help provide the basic needs and support needed to recover and rebuild.  Here are a few of the relief organizations that are on the ground or are on their way to Haiti now...
Food for the Hungry
Samaritan's Purse 
World Vision
Compassion
Salvation Army
American Red Cross
