EFCA and ReachGlobal Haiti situation

15 Jan

Some have asked about our response to the Haiti crisis.  Although the situation is fluid, we anticipate having some of our folks on the ground early next week.  Bottom line, this will be a multi-year response, so we will be organizing to receive teams in Haiti and use this opportunity to show Christ’s love in action.

Here is the latest official information:

EFCA UPDATE SPECIAL BROADCAST
January 15, 2010

HELP HAITI
EFCA TouchGlobal Crisis Response is responding to the situation in Haiti and your help is needed!

Our response is being planned in connection with the EFCA Southeast District, an EFCA church planter in Haiti, and key ministry partners. The Crisis Response director is working to arrive in Haiti, and in the next few days assessment teams will be in the country. Crisis Response will work to provide immediate relief, as well as plan for long term recovery.

GIVE
Donations are needed for immediate crisis relief needs and long-term recovery efforts.  Please donate online or send checks to:
EFCA
Earthquake Relief 21709-3970
901 E 78th Street
Minneapolis, MN 55420
 
SERVE
Once a base of operations is established, volunteers will be needed (internships, short-term and long-term service teams). If you or your church are interested in serving in Haiti, contact the EFCA TouchGlobal Crisis Response office at crisisresponse@efca.org or call (985) 893-0218 ext 7.

PRAY
We praise God that church planter Pastor Absalon and his wife are alive. Pray for the leaders and members of the EFC church plant in Haiti as they serve in the midst of this crisis. Please pray for:
–       the people of Haiti as they experience loss, pain and death.
–       the Crisis Response team as they determine how God would have the EFCA respond.
Pray that God would move in this crisis and that people would come to know and trust Him.
