Ruthe and I will be traveling to the Dominican Republic, to speak at the Dominican Baptist Convention next week. We hope to get first-hand information about the crisis in Haiti and our possible response.
One missionary wrote:
Pray, Pray, Pray for the people of Haiti, and when you have prayed, Pray more. Literally get on your knees and pray!
I would add:
Give to an organization that will not siphon off part of your donation for “administrative costs.” Give to someone who will ensure that every penny goes to the needy.
Give to an agency or organization that has people on the ground and the means to get the supplies and food to the people.
Give to an organization that will help in the explicit name of the only One who can give hope and a future.
