Where Are You?

Like you as I watch the news I am overwhelmed by the images that I see.
Houses gone, hospitals gone, families gone.
Gone in just a brief moment. But the horror of that moment will live on for the people of Haiti for years to come.
In the midst of all the pain and sorrow, the question comes, because it always does. God where are you? Don't you love these people?
The answer lies right at the surface. He is there. He is here. He was there yesterday and he'll be there tomorrow. He'll be with the child that survives when everyone thought they wouldn't. He'll be with the rescue worker who doesn't think they can go one more moment yet they do.
He hasn't moved. His love for ALL people of the world has never changed.

We are now being given the ultimate opportunity to give to our neighbors in need.
The first thing we must do is pray. Pray for every precious person who is trapped. Every baby who doesn't know where it's next meal is coming from. Every mother who can't find her baby. Pray and pray hard.

Next thing we must do is give. Give and give generously.
Be the hands and feet of Jesus. Show the world your love of Jesus by helping someone else in a desperate situation.
We sponsor a child through Compassion International and find them to not only nurture the body but the soul as well as they teach children about Jesus., please go to their website and give generously, just like you would if Jesus was the one holding the child waiting for it's next drink of water.
Because, don't be mistaken, He is right there!
