BENEFITING: Haiti Cheri Harvest Life Ministries
EVENT DATE: Oct 22, 2011
Revolution Church partners with Haiti Cheri and we are their biggest supporter! Over the last year I have been able to see several teams go to Haiti and make a difference in many different ways! The one thing that tugs at my heart is the fact that they have so little but have so much! While they don't have large homes, really nice vehicles or even clean water...they have the love of Christ and that's more than enough! I WANT that! I have been challenging myself to question myself "what can I live without?" In this society, it's a difficult question to answer.
Over this past year I have made excuses for why I cannot go to Haiti: I can't afford to go; I am a single mom; what will I do with Ethan? God spoke to me through a Haiti Cheri Newsletter. Dan Merrefield said to just turn in the application and deposit and SEE what God does. That is what I have decided to do! If it's Gods will for me to go to Haiti and love on the people there then the funds will be raised and my son will be cared for! God is already working...even before I turned everything in! I LOVE SEEING God work!
I have set a goal of $2,000. This money will go to getting me there and supplies for us to take to Haiti (medication, food and so much more). Anything over that will be more of a blessing.
Just to give you an idea of the conditions there. There are hospitals there for the sick. There was an infant at the hospital who was practically starving because her family could not afford formula for her. The hospital allows people to stay there but they do not buy supplies for them. Our team left the hospital to purchase formula for the baby girl so she could eat, get nutrients all children need and to gain some weight. Haiti is not the only country with these conditions but if we all spread about we can reach the whole world =) And that's what Matthew 28:19 says right? 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!
If you can give even $5 that would be amazing! Each dollar helps! In fact, you'd be surprised how far $1 will go! Please let me know if you have any questions. For more information about Haiti Cheri's vision please check out their site at www.haiticheri.org
