Tonight I'm sitting here watching the images of devastation and horror coming out of Haiti. When I see these people, who have suffered so much already, living through this earthquake nightmare, it is hard for me not to wonder why God would allow this. But I must hold to what I know to be true - He loves these people, He is in control, and He has plan that I can neither see nor understand, but it is a plan for good - not evil.
Samaritan's Purse is a trustworthy ministry that has a heart for showing God's love to the hurting. They dispatched a team just hours after the quake to help with water, shelter, medical care, and other emergency needs. Their focus will be on medical help, shelter, clean water, and hygiene supplies. An initial shipment of emergency relief items including rolls of plastic shelter material, hygiene kits, and water purification kits were flown into Port-au-Prince today.
If you feel led to donate even a small amount, you can do so at the Samaritan's Purse website.
