Amen Brother, amen
At Children's time, we started "Change of a Change"... were when the kid's leave for children's church they collect pocket change from the congregation.... We will accumulate the change until Easter and show the kids how much a lot of people giving a little bit at a time over time can add up too.

That's a great idea and a great lesson.
This is an email I received from a missionary friend of mine who works with internationals in the D.C. area.


Report from a friend about Haiti. Yahoo news confirms in this link http://news.yahoo.com/nphotos/Haitian-President-Rene-Preval-nationa...

NOTE: For centuries, Haiti has been one of the darkest nations in the world – full of voodoo and witchcraft – even at the highest levels of government. But now – look at this!!

ARTICLE and YOUTUBE VIDEO BELOW - WELL WORTH WATCHING. Did not hear of this on TV.

Jerry Miel is a good friend and radio engineer who served as a missionary in Haiti with World Team mission when we lived there. He worked with the Christian station, Radio Lumiere (Radio Light). He has gone back to Haiti to help in the aftermath of the earthquake and makes these important observations. – Boxley

AN INCREDIBLE DAY in the HISTORY OF HAITI – by Jerry Miel (Feb 17).

I think that I will remember this day as one of the most significant in my life, not because of what I did, but for it's meaning...

Today was the one month anniversary of the great Haitian earthquake.

About 3 days ago the Haitian President announced that there would be 3 days of holiday from work for the purpose of fasting and prayer. This is absolutely historic. If you have ever been in Haiti as a visitor or missionary, could you ever have imagined such a pronouncement? Could you image such an announcement

from the U.S. President? This morning I saw a young Haitian-American woman, the leader of a work team, crying because the Americans could not understand the incredible importance of this day and wanted to go about business as usual. Remember, it was only about 6 years ago that a former Haitian president called the

nation to come together to rededicate the nation to Satan.

This was not "a minute of silence for the deceased" or something as equally insignificant. Whatever the President might have originally intended, this became a real commitment for the Haitian people. As I sit here this evening, I can hear the preaching coming from a nearby church. Services have been going on all day...

Let me tell you what I saw and felt today.

Peniel and I had planned an inspection trip up to the Artibonite Valley today. Right or wrong, I don't really know, but since it was the only opportunity, we went ahead with the trip. As we left the guest house about 7:30 am, we were met by throngs of well dressed people headed to various churches. The sounds of Christian music and worship filled the air everywhere. The next observation was that there was NO traffic. Port-au-Prince streets are always clogged and overflowing with bumper to bumper traffic. This morning there were only a few vehicles on the roads, a few small buses (tap taps), some UN and military vehicles, and a few private cars. We had clear sailing through town. The same was true of foot traffic. Usually the streets are clogged also with people walking. Today there were only a few and many of them dressed for church. The only place that there were traffic blocks was in front of several churches where the congregations had overflowed the buildings and the yards and had moved out into the streets as well.

The next observation was that EVERYTHING was closed! We could not find even one business or gas station open. There were no intercity buses running. Whereas the sidewalks are usually overflowing with millions of street venders, we only saw a few here and there. The huge outdoor market near the wharf where

thousands work each day and is spread out to cover most of the street, was EMPTY.

Where were all the people? They were in churches and makeshift meeting sites. Every church (except a JW church) had services going on, almost always overflowing into the streets. Beside broken down churches, services were taking place outside. In homeless camps, there were services. Everywhere the nation was gathered to worship and pray. No, I did not see any voodoo, Islamic, or Buddhist services. This scene was repeated in every town and hamlet that we passed during the day.

Tonight, Pastor Ignace, who is sharing the room with me, asked this question: "Can people still say that Haiti is a voodoo country?" What has been happening and is continuing to happen in Haiti did not happen because of the earthquake. It has been happening because the Haitian people know how to pray. This is a tremendous outpouring of God's power as the result of prayer. Twenty years ago I started praying for the Gospel to change the Haitian culture. I think that I am seeing God do that work.

The only sadness that I feel today is for our nation. While a nation that has long been under Satan's domination is turning to God with total commitment, our nation, founded on Godly values has rejected God and is rapidly trying to forget that his name even exists. Let us pray for revival.

I'm praying that the Haitian people will quit their wicked ways so that God will stop punishing them for their sinfulness. Well, actually, I'm not ... but according to the 700 Club on TV, Pat Robertson really is doing this. Boy, is that Pat Robertson a nutty cornflake or what?
cuzz,

You point out something that brings disgrace to all Christians, when some hold onto old covenant theology when in the light of the Gospel of Grace, people aren't punished by God for what their parents (forefathers?) have done. Now, that doesn't mean that individuals don't suffer because of what people around them do, because that is clear and direct. The Hatian people are suffering for years (generations?) of graft in the government. There's been enough foreign aid, NGO support and church mission work (my Puerto Rico Church ran a school and supported a seminary) for Haiti to be in pretty good shape. But, year after year, the leaders have stolen money intended to educate and feed the poor.

I think that prayers are important, that aid is necessary, but most importantly the Haitian people need to stand up and demand good government....

thanks for you comment....

blessings,

Sam
