Thoughts on Revival And Haiti
What a way to start of a New Year! Two powerful weeks of revival meetings in Beauregard Alabama at Beauregard Revival Center! Many were saved, filled with the Spirit renewed in their walk with God and I believe great encouragement was imparted from the Father! Thank you to Pastors Johnny & Jean Hamby for allowing us to partner with you in the Great Commission.
And then Haiti. I can't even watch the news anymore because I know I can't get there to help. No matter the reason for Haiti being in the situation it is in, it could be any of us lying under the pile of rubble!
This is not going to go away in a week. This will take years to recover from. And what people are not realizing is, there will be THOUSANDS OF ORPHANS left to care for! THOUSANDS! Before the earthquake happened, orphanages would find children and babies lying abandoned at their front doors because Mom's and Dad's couldn't feed and care for them. Churches and ministries have been on the frontlines serving in Haiti long before this happened; and they remain on the frontlines, long after CNN, FOX and MSNBC is gone.
Thank you for the giving to us toward this project. Thank you for the millions, if not billions of dollars that have been channeled through Samaritans Purse, Food for the Poor, Compassion International…all these organizations are doing a tremendous work reaching out to the Haitian people. Not just because of this disaster, but they have had on going works there for many years.
It will never make the news; but the church IS arising to address the needs there; and He is using people like us!
We have chosen to funnel any relief money that comes to us through World Harvest Missions, God's Plumbline Ministries and Heart of Jonathan Ministries. I know these people personally, we have partnered together on many outreaches to both Haiti and Guyana, and I know they will use the money wisely.
These groups combined have orphanages, Women's homes, a Sewing School for Ladies, adoption ministries, and regular medical clinics. They are not newcomers to Haiti but have been in the country for many years. They know how to get the job done!
In the midst of tragedy and turmoil, Jesus is STILL Lord and God will take the worst thing that could happen to anyone and make something good come out of it!
