I know it may be a little too soon to start up another challenge, but I feel led to post about this challenge I just found out about.
It's a 24 hour challenge. It started at 8:20 p.m. Haiti time. So that means the challenge will end on 12/02/10 at 7:20 CST (Texas time).
There is a wonderful organization called the "Haiti Rescue Center" and their blog is "Real Hope for Haiti". These people help save lives every day. Many of the lives they save are malnourished and neglected children. These children come into the rescue center very sick, some at death's doorstep. Their families sometimes walk for days to get to the rescue center. The great people at the rescue center take these children in and nurse them back to health so they can be reunited with their family. They have also been helping people who are sick with Cholera ever since the Cholera outbreak. People can't make it all the way to the town where the hospital is. So the Rescue Center set up tents and treats patients outside in tents. You have to check out this blog and see the pictures, read the stories. It will break your heart, and hopefully move your heart to help.
This is a great opportunity to see your small offerings be multiplied (and quickly at that!) by our God who loves His children! There is a family in Texas that wrote to them today and told them they would match up to $1,000 to help these families that struggle so tremendously just to provide for their children. However, the funds must be raised within 24 hours! If you are reading this, and it's not yet 7:20 CST on 12/02 then you can help out too!
I've seen my Almighty God move in mighty ways over the past couple of days! I know He can raise the $1,000 in 24 hours time! A 24 hour challenge......are you in?
