Extending a Helping Hand

As the world knows by now, a major earthquake rocked Haiti this past Tuesday, devastating the city of Port-au-Prince and leaving thousands, possibly millions without hope.  The effects of this quake reach farther than one could imagine. 

Here in Anderson, we have felt the effect of the ground shaking through the Radius Community in Greenville, who has recently partnered with a church in Pignon (about 60 miles north of the epicenter). 

While we may not be able to physically be present in Haiti to help, there are still things we can do to help.  

 – Pray.  Pray for all those affected, physically, emotionally and spiritually.  Pray for those who have been injured.  Pray for those who have had everything taken away from them.  Pray for the rescuers and citizens searching for survivers and loved ones.  Pray for peace in the midst of Chaos. 

 – While there are many different organizations doing rescue work in Haiti, Radius has partnered with Bright Hope International in the possibility of being the hands and feet of Christ for the people of Haiti.  Pray for those hearts that are willing to take the risk and go.

 – In addition, Bright Hope is distributing Med-Packs to a network of churches in Haiti that are capable of offering the physical healing of a neighbor and the comfort of Christ.  A pack of 20 med-packs is $300.  Pray about donating or purchasing one of these packs to help the suffering in Haiti.  (Call 224-520-6100 or go to Bright Hope to order)

Continue to pray for the people of Haiti, even after the innitial surge of media turns away from this tragedy.

God Bless and PEACE
