The earthquake and aftershocks in Haiti have left a poor country that much more desperate for the basic necessities. Many Christian organizations living and serving the people of Port-Au-Prince are now faced with an even greater mission in the months (and years) ahead. One of many Twitter posts following the quake expressed the enormity of the situation:
"I can't imagine the devastation this has caused to such an overly stressed city - I think it will be suffering for quite some time." 7:31 p.m. ET Jan. 12
In the aftermath of this quake, Grace to You® has posted at GTY.org their response to the tragedy in Haiti, including a sermon from John MacArthur. With so many folks asking "why did this happen?"--it's important we turn to God's Word for answers.
Also, this week on "Grace to You®" (Wed., 1/27, and Fri., 1/29), John shares a special word with listeners, encouraging them to express their support to the ministry relief efforts going on in Haiti. One such ministry organization he recommends is DoubleHarvest.org. These folks are uniquely positioned to minister practical help and spiritual hope to Haiti. You can watch a video of John's message here.
There are of course many ways in which we can support the ministries and people of Haiti ... the most important of those is being devoted to prayer on their behalf (Col. 4:2-4).
Be sure to check out the many broadcasts airing this month, including John's study of The Greatest of These, that will help listeners apply biblical truth in every aspect of their lives. Find more information by downloading the February promo pack here.
