The following is a moving reminder
of how precious the little things,
we often take for granted, truly
are...and how you and I can help our fellow human beings, in places like Africa & Haiti, in a POWERFUL way....for a comparatively LITTLE amount of money....
On January 12, 2010 Haiti
experienced a devastating 7.0 earthquake that plunged the
ENTIRE COUNTRY into darkness.
Now…each night …millions
of Haitians spend their time after sunset …
in a world void of ANY light.
Can you imagine?
NOW imagine bringing…
||6 Months of Food
||A Creole Bible
a Haitian family of 6 …all for ONLY $25.00…
will help keep the recipient family physically alive,
Bible will give them spiritual strength & hope,
lamps will allow them the uplifting joy of something we, as American's,
take all too much for granted: light to read, eat and be comforted by when
darkness falls upon the land each evening.
As Evans Wadongo (the
young man in the video) pointed out: what these solar lamps allow families
to save in money, because they no longer need Kerosene, can then be used
to buy food and other essentials ---thus helping to "break the cycle of
their poverty". Evans Wadongo was willing to skip as many as TWO MEALS
PER DAY to meet the needs of his impoverished fellow countrymen. For most AMERICANS, $25.00 amounts to dinner and a movie.
It’s the most productive $25.00 you’ll ever spend!

Let's not forget Haiti, now that the media is gone.
if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one
has, and not according to what he does not have. Our desire is not that
others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might
be equality. At the present time your plenty will supply what they need,
so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. Then there will
be equality, as it is written: 'He who gathered much did not have too much,
and he who gathered little did not have too little."
