Enough


Yesterday I participated in a Haiti drive. We were collecting sleeping bags, tarps and medical supplies for people affected by the Haiti earthquake. Then again, is there anyone in Haiti that was not affected by the earthquake? It would be like Washington basically collapsing. And even that does not begin to describe how it is. I close my eyes to try and picture it so I can have a better understanding of the plight of the Haitian people, but nothing can compare to the stench of dead bodies laying everywhere, no running water anywhere, no electricity or blankets, sleeping on a hard street with nothing underneath me. Owning nothing. Nothing.

So, we collected some sleeping bags and medical supplies.


And today it just doesn’t feel like quite enough.

    Our prayers are the most we can do. My pastor believes the church is stronger than satan in Haiti even though voodoo is a national religion. Our denomination already had feet on the ground when the quake came. Let us pray for those who ARE there that what we give will be used to His glory and that many will come to know Him.Thanks, Amy.
