Churches Helping Churches (follow-up)

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

It's hard to forget the disturbing images of ruin following the earthquake in Haiti back in January. As many of you know, Harvest had an opportunity to partner with an effort called Churches Helping Churches. This effort, led by Pastors James MacDonald and Mark Driscoll, was intended to aid Haitian believers and churches devastated by the quake. The report of how the Lord has used your generosity, along with the generosity of many other churches across America, is remarkable. These numbers are from the Churches Helping Churches website.

4 : months to the day since the 7.0 earthquake struck Port-au-Prince

$2 million : donations received thus far for church rebuilding mission in Haiti

$1.7 million : value of medical supplies secured by CHC for local Haitian clinics

200 : Haitian pastors who will attend a retreat at the end of May so they can be ministered to and heal personally before they go out and minister in their own communities

5, 15 : number of Biblical counseling experts and pastors from the Haitian diaspora, respectively, who will minister to local Haitian pastors at the retreat

We thank God and all of you for what has been provided so far, and feel blessed to be a part of this mission. But there’s still a tremendous amount of work to be done. There are still pastors who need support, churches that still need rebuilding, and communities that still need the Gospel.
If you'd like to help, here's how you can pray and here's where you can give.

So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. (Galatians 6:10)
