Not really knowing what to say about the tragedy taking place in Haiti, I’ve made the mistake of saying nothing.

Part of my silence is born out of the recognition that anything I might say wouldn’t do justice to the magnitude of loss and suffering taking place there.  As if to put words to it would take something immensely catastrophic and make it less than that.

That said, a very few things could and should be said.  So with an economy of words, here goes.

Pray – A short video here might help us get barely in touch with the suffering taking place there.

Also, World Vision UK has issued a call to pray for forty days on behalf of the Haitian people…

Give – Two worthy relief organizations that the Chino’s love are:

Go – I am hearing stories of individuals and churches who are doing what needs to be done in going down and being the hands and feet of Christ.  Those stories are as good as they are humbling.

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”

Jesus – Matthew 25:35-36
