In the U.S. we are hearing about this catastrophe that is affecting the world but we have not experienced this particular gargantuan calamity firsthand. However, as God's people we have compassion, hearts of mercy, the power of prayer, and a Christ-driven love for the suffering as we are seeing and hearing about the growing number of widows, widowers, and orphans who are many of the survivors in Haiti right now.

How do we handle this? First, as His children we all are already linking ourselves to God by dropping to our knees to cry out for mercy for the Haitians. Secondly, as God leads each one of us, of course, we can link ourselves to giving financial help as well. Here's a suggestion to visit: www.worldmag.com/webextra/16287
As God's people we already know we're to pray and to trust Him and love Him with all of "your heart, soul, strength, and mind," and we're to "love our neighbors as ourselves." We are trying....help us, Lord, and have mercy on Haiti and be glorified in all these things.
We love you, Lord. Amen.
