We have so many opportunities to live in many ways: by being present to one another, by sharing mercy and compassion, and by sharing the resources we have received with the less fortunate. Our brothers and sisters in Haiti continue to experience the effects of the earthquake of August 14. The aftermath challenges livelihoods and will continue to challenge their daily lives. What is the way we can accompany and assist them? We need to be ready and to share the medications, clothing and other materials, which are being sent down in a container, that will aid and give hope. So many people have responded to this call from near and far. Monetary donations have already been put into place with medications and access to clean water. This is happening because of you. Your generous response is making a difference. This is what it means to put flesh on “whatever you do, in word and deed, do in the name of the Lord…” All things are possible with God!
“And whatever you do, in word or in deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Colossians 3:17
