While hearts were breaking in Tennessee on Tuesday, because a football coach bailed and jumped onto a Trojan ship, lives were being shattered in Haiti. It is amazing how such news puts things in proper perspective.
During this week friends and church members have asked if there is anything they can do to provide relief to the effected islanders, if there is any avenue through which they can contribute. There are many good organizations working through this tragedy, but I want to take a moment to highlight one: Minutemen for Missions.
Minutemen for Missions is an arm of Mission to the World. Those who sign up to be Minutemen (and women) are kept posted about disasters around the world, prayer needs, and opportunities to send support. There is no specific expectation every time there is a natural disaster, but you will be notified and kept informed about the situations. It is up to each individual to determine what, or if, they will do in response.
Minutemen is a hand of compassion as an extension of MTW’s regular, church plating, ministries.
