Folks are huddled under sheets of tin.
Already bashed from the effects of Hurricane Matthew; they are weary.
What can you do?
I sense it in my farmers voice.
I read between the lines in his texts.
There’s so much devastation.
People are on the side of the road hollering for food.
Trucks are being stopped and raided to take the food.
There are road blocks.
A broken people, in a broken nation; hurting.
And even going seems like it’s not enough.
Why do the battered and broken keep receiving the blows?
What should our response be?
My farmer and farm boy are in the heart of Haiti where the eye of the storm passed through.
An angry storm that relentlessly bashed an already weary nation.
They are working hard to help.
To bring hope, light and relief.
We can’t fix everything in this world.
But we can make a difference.
One life at a time.
There is hope.
There is new life.
Even in the midst of devastation.
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
Jesus’ command when he left this earth was to GO make disciples of all nations.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them
in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you.
We need to go.
Whether it is in prayer; to go to our knees
– or physically go to be present- here in this nation or across the Oceans
-or to go by staying and giving out of our resources ; empowering others to Go.
We all have a responsibility.
It is all equally important.
Can you make a difference today?
Make the choice to go.
Go–Where you are needed.
Go– to your knees in prayer for those that are in need and how you can help.
G0– by giving of your resources.
Be blessed my friends.
If you would like to Go by staying.
