Haitian Earthquake Relief

By now you have probably heard about the massive earthquake that struck Haiti.  Haiti, one of the poorest nations in the western hemisphere, lies in ruins.  In response, Americans are doing what we do best-helping our neighbors. Make no mistake, the need in Haiti is dire.

If you want to help, you can donate to the United Methodist Committee on Relief, or UMCOR.  UMCOR has a strong presence in Haiti.  Gifts to support UMCOR’s Haiti Relief efforts can be made to Haiti Emergency, UMCOR Advance #418325.  Checks can be made to UMCOR with Advance #418325 Haiti Emergency in the memo line.  Checks can be put in the church’s offering plate or mailed to UMCOR, PO Box 9068, New York, NY 10087.  UMCOR states that 100 percent of Advance gifts made will go to support relief and development efforts due to emergencies in Haiti.

“Give freely and spontaneously.  Don’t have a stingy heart.  The way you handle matters like this triggers God, your God’s blessing in everything you do, all your work and ventures.  There are always going to be poor and needy people among you.  So I command you:  Always be generous, open purse and hands, give to your neighbors in trouble, your poor and hurting neighbors.”  Deuteronomy 15:10-The Message.

One Comment on “Haitian Earthquake Relief”

  1. For the Love of Haiti!
    May God Bless all of you…and please pray for our Christian Sisters and Brothers of Haiti.

    We pray for the people of Haiti. We ask of all the hosts of our Heavenly Father to find them, heal them, to give them the food and water and the Faith to help them face the horrors of this war on Earth by Earth. Please assist these wonderful and God loving folks
    through their tears and their fears. Give them strength even when the weariness of their bodies and soul cries for sleep. Help them to rest so they are strong for these many days ahead.

    The People of Haiti are God’s own people. Please-Please, we ask of our Lord Jesus and Our Creator and our Holy Spirit to bring strength to each of them…In Jesus’s name we pray…Amen

    Again, I humbly beg you to pray–pray and pray for them…

    Philip M. Edwards
