Very simply and very sincerely I ask you to join me in loving our brothers and sisters—our neighbors—in Haiti.
I ask you to join me in praying (as I know many of you are doing already) for all the precious people in Haiti who are suffering so greatly in the aftermath of January 12th’s devastatingly destructive earthquake. And I ask you too, as God leads you, to reach out with giving the practical, financial help that is so vitally necessary now.
Personally, we are waiting to hear about how our little Lovens—a little boy who we help support through the ministry of Compassion International—is doing right now. I hate not knowing how he is. And I’m not sure when we’re going to find out how he is—or if he is even still alive. The precious servants of Jesus at Compassion International (CI) are praying continually and actively doing their very best to locate every child and all who serve with CI. So many other people across the world, who have ties with the people in Haiti, are also desperately waiting to hear about how their family members, friends, colleagues and ministry partners are doing right now.
There’s so little most of us can actually do in a direct, tangible way to help our brothers and sisters in Haiti. But! That does not mean that we, who are not members of the emergency relief teams, are helpless. We can pray. And we can help financially. In other words, we can love—spiritually and tangibly.
So, again, very simply and very sincerely I ask you to join me in loving our brothers and sisters—our neighbors—in Haiti. Loving others is the most simple and sincere way for any of us to love our Lord.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with your strength. [And]…love your neighbor as yourself.”
In love, peace and purposeful passion, Sylane
