Many people are wondering how to help the people of Haiti following the earthquake there. Samaritan's Purse, a Christian relief organization headed up by Franklin Graham, was on the ground in Haiti within hours of the earthquake.

I participated in one disaster relief trip with this group, and I highly recommend them. Along with food, shelter, water and medical care, Samaritan's Purse offers the Good News of Jesus Christ that will endure forever. When the relief workers return home, it is the people of Haiti who must continue to re-build their lives. With Jesus Christ, they won't go it alone, and will know the hope and peace that comes from a saving faith in Him.

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’” Matthew 25:37-40

“This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome…” 1 John 5:3
