GoServ Global’s 3rd relief team since Hurricane Matthew is heading to Haiti today!
GoServ Global loaded a shipping container yesterday with steel roofing, food, generators, chain saws, hand tools, tarps, and much, much more! Thank you to everyone who’s supported the Hurricane Matthew Relief!
Our GoServ Global mission team has been hard at work building Safe T Homes at the Center of Help Orphanage. Here is part of a blog post from Tammy Davis, whose husband and son are serving on a GoServ Global mission team in Haiti:
I sense it in my farmer’s voice.
I read between the lines in his texts.
There’s so much devastation.
People are on the side of the road hollering for food.
Trucks are being stopped and raided to take the food.
There are road blocks.
A broken people, in a broken nation; hurting.
And even going seems like it’s not enough.
Why do the battered and broken keep receiving the blows?
What should our response be?
My farmer and farm boy are in the heart of Haiti where the eye of the storm passed through.
An angry storm that relentlessly bashed an already weary nation.
They are working hard to help.
To bring hope, light and relief.
We can’t fix everything in this world.
But we can make a difference.
One life at a time.
Jesus’ command when he left this earth was to GO make disciples of all nations.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them
in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you.
We need to go.
Whether it is in prayer; to go to our knees
– or physically go to be present- here in this nation or across the Oceans
-or to go by staying and giving out of our resources ; empowering others to Go.
We all have a responsibility.
It is all equally important.
Can you make a difference today?
Make the choice to go.
Go–Where you are needed.
Go– to your knees in prayer for those that are in need and how you can help.
G0– by giving of your resources.
