Our news cycles are consumed by a very real attempt to manipulate our thought process. I know our election and the character assassination of one man makes for an easy sell, but surely there are more important things happening in the world than what may or may not have been said 5, 10, 15 or even 30 years ago.
Things like Russia calling home all it’s diplomats. Moving missiles strategically. Completing emergency drills with 40 million people “just in case.”
Things like an entire nation left ravaged by a hurricane that just grazed our shores. A cholera outbreak. Hundreds dead and thousands homeless. The kind of ravaging that leads to desperation where tear gas is needed to control crowds at a food distribution attempt. Folks, the world moves on to the inane beat of a news cycle chattering meaningless fluff while Haitians face a crisis of apocalyptic proportions.
But there is SOMETHING you can do. And unlike giant charities with inflated overheads and rolling bank accounts, our #helphaiti initiative is guaranteeing that EVERY DIME GIVEN goes towards buying food, water and aid supplies to be flown to Haiti by Missionary Flights International. There are local schools gathering food and supplies as well as businesses giving aid. YOU have a very real opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those hardest hit by Hurricane Matthew. I pray you’ll consider joining me in this effort and be the brothers and sisters in Christ that our family needs in Haiti. #helphaiti and give generously!
