Crazy in Haiti

Mark Driscoll and James MacDonald took a trip to Haiti to improve the Churches Helping Churches (Churches Helping Churches was created to address the immediate and long-term needs of churches when disaster befalls a country, region, city, or people in the spirit of Galatians 6:10—“…let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.”).

This article (located here) was his first reflections on coming back from the trip posted by Mars Hill (the church that he pastors).  USA Today also ran an article (located here) that further explain what mark and James experienced on their trip.

So what can we do here at home?

Because it is so difficult to get to Haiti right now, the best way to help immediately is through monetary donations, which allow relief organizations to buy the items for those in need. If you want to make an immediate donation, just text “HAITI” to “90999″ and a donation of $10 (charged to your cell phone bill) will automatically be given to the Red Cross to help with their relief efforts.

You can also learn more about how to make a donation and what organizations are doing to help www.interaction.org. And be sure to watch out for scams.  Whenever disaster strikes, scammers prey on the noble urges of those who want to help. To find out if the charity you’re thinking of donating to is worthwhile, check out CharityNavigator.org for reviews on these organizations. They also offer Tips for Giving During a Crisis.

Remember, even though it may be difficult to get to Haiti right now, the recovery effort will be lengthy and they will continue to need your help when the story ceases to dominate the headlines.

What else?

Don’t forget being a prayer warrior.  The Bible says, “God listens to the godly man who does his will.” (John 9:31)
