WHAT SHOULD WE DO?

Posted: May 11, 2010 in Uncategorized
On yesterday’s blog I shared a link to an article that told of some of the earthquake orphans being mentored and cared for by gang members.  It was a heartbreaking story and one that has pierced my heart and the hearts of other Heartline people that are here on the ground in Haiti.
Yesterday at our 7:30 AM meeting I had the five people at the meeting read the article and then we talked and asked: What can we do?  How can we help?  How can we meet the needs of not only the earthquake orphans but the gang members as well?  DOES GOD HAVE A PLAN THAT INVOLVES HEARTLINE? 

We decided to meet over the issue again in one week and until then see if the seed planted in our hearts has grown to more that just a good idea.
We as well will go into the area mentioned where we are already well known as the people that come in with the big truck and help the injured and ask this question: WHAT ARE THE THREE THINGS THAT YOU WOULD LIKE FOR YOUR COMMUNITY?

The gang member, Toutou Soleil 19, said that they needed: WATER, A MOBILE CLINIC, and A SOUP KITCHEN.  But we will ask young men and young women and mothers and fathers and children.

Your prayers are greatly needed as we look to see if God’s plan for Heartline is to place one hand on the heart of God and the other hand on the hearts of the people of Cite Soleil.

A HARD RAIN

It started raining at about 4:30 in the afternoon and it rained, a hard rain for several hours.  My thoughts were toward those living under leaky tarps and under leaky tin roofs in places like Cite Soleil.

UNREST

Yesterday was a day of mass demonstrations downtown as the people frustrated with what they see as the lack of leadership by the President Preval filled the streets demanding that he stepped down.
