Don’t Forget Haiti

Jan. 12, 2010 Haiti was left with the mess from a devastating 7.0 earthquake. It has been almost a month since this tragedy and it is easy to forget of the great need that is still there and the shock has probably already worn off. Haiti was in one of the world’s worst conditions even in the best of times. Eighty percent of Haiti’s 9 million residents live under the poverty line and more than half — 54 percent — live in abject poverty, according to the CIA Factbook. Alot has been done to help the people of Haiti but much is still to be done.

Here is a video from David Platt the Pastor at Brook Hills. It is a great reminder of how we respond to natural disasters. > Click Here for the video.

I’ve also included video from Lecrae with Reach Records. His bible-saturated, Chirst-honring, Gospel-centered lyrics always leave me glorifying God! Below is a video of a song written specifically to raise awareness and money for relief work in the earthquake shattered region, the video features footage from the ground in Haiti and of the recent concert in Minneapolis where $20,000 was raised.

Galatians 6:9-10 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
