The Call to Missions? The Call to Haiti?

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8)

The focus of our most recent House of Worship was the devastation caused by the horrendous earthquake that occurred in Haiti on January 12, 2010. We were mesmerized as we watched a power point that brought to life the reality of the destruction.

Our hearts broke as we saw the collapsed buildings with people buried alive in them, and the children wandering the streets without food, searching for their families, susceptible even to the viles of human traffickers taking advantage of the tragedy. Hopeless faces without the basic necessities of life. We rejoiced as we viewed one little life rescued out of the rubble and as we saw many of our Christian brothers and sisters ministering in the relief efforts already.

We spent concentrated time praying in small groups begging God to undertake for the people of Haiti.
And we were challenged to ask ourselves…how can we help?
What can we do?
We asked God to give us all a vision beyond Greece, to the needs of other hurting people in Haiti, but also all over the world.
We were challenged to ask the question…is God calling me from my comfort zone here to be the hands and feet of Jesus to others in a foreign land?

Please pray for the young people of Greece, to hear and obey the call to missions.
Pray for HM as we are considering sending a team of Greeks to Haiti in the near future.
