"When I grow up, maybe I can take a helicopter and bring food and water to Haiti."
I love it when words like this come from my daughter's mouth.
Her first grade class is working to raise money for Haiti. I am so thankful for a teacher that sees the importance in cultivating a heart of compassion and an awareness of needs in our world. She has been asking for jobs, wanting to help.
Her willingness to help has been a reminder to me to keep praying.
I read that they are estimating 200,000 dead.
It is a number I can't fathom.
There is a part of me that can't help ask why God? I obviously don't know the answer.
But even deeper I wonder, how do you get through something like this without God?
So I continue to pray for the people of Haiti, that God's presence would be palpable and many would believe and be saved.
