Update on Madelene

Remember the 24 hour challenge that I posted about on Wednesday, December 1st?

I just checked the Real Hope For Haiti blog and found out that $9897.00 was raised in 24 hours! Check it out! It's a great reminder about God's love for the "least of these".

This little 5 year old girl, Madelene, is struggling to survive. She only weighs 26 lbs at 5 years old. Her mom died giving birth to her younger sibling when Madelene was only 2. Her father works the fields every day to try to provide for his 10 children. He doesn't make enough money to provide food for his kids. Three of his children have died since his wife's passing. He is a Christian and loves his children dearly but can not provide for them, though he tries. Madelene has been passed around from relative to relative b/c of this. She has been severely neglected. She is in bad shape. She is lucky to be alive. She is struggling. But God has used His children to donate to raise almost $10,000 in 24 hours to help her and another family like hers.

Praise God for He is good!
