Reaching Out to Haiti

My heart is breaking as I look at the pictures of devastation from the earthquake in Haiti. I have had several people ask how they can help. The quickest way to help is by sending money. They will also need food, water, and supplies as the relief effort continues. We are working at Cornerstone to see how we can help. For now, here are some ways you can contribute.

  • We have several connections to Harvest International based in Ocala, Florida. They are a missions group based out of Florida with missionaries already in Haiti.  Todd Shaw from Cornerstone has been on two mission trips with them to Haiti.  You can go to their webpage to donate and contribute directly to their missionaries who are there now.
  • Locally God’s Pit Crew is gathering water and supplies to transport to Haiti. You can find out more at their website and at SpiritFM.
  • Samaritan’s Purse is also gathering supplies and donations to help. Find out more at their website.
  • Water Missions International is working on providing clean water. Find out more at their website.

There are many organzations and churches providing relief, but don’t let that lull you into not doing anything. Let me ask you this question that I shared last Sunday.  Do the things that break God’s heart break your heart? Let’s show the love of Christ by loving and serving as Jesus demonstrated for us.  Here are some pictures from the Red Cross. Watch them and pray for the people of Haiti.
