If you've been around for a while, you may know that one of my passions is fundraising for an organization called "New Life for Haiti".
Founded in 2005, NLH has been working hard to make a difference in a small river valley on the southern peninsula of Haiti. Our church is very involved and we feel it is important to teach our children about Haiti as well.
Each summer, the children of our church raise money through their own summer projects to help fund needs in Haiti and our local area. This year they purchased school supplies and vitamins which were sent down to Marfranc.
To see the looks on their faces when they know they've helped someone in need is priceless. When they make the connection between providing items that they take for granted to children who have literally nothing (materially, anyway), it's incredible.
They really GET the mandate from Jesus "Whatever you do for the least of my brothers, you do unto me." (Matthew 25:40)
It was no surprise, then, that two very talented folks in our church, who have both been to Haiti on mission trips, created this video featuring children.
Visit New Life for Haiti.
And be touched.
