Can you believe it has been a full year since the devastation of the earthquake in Haiti? It seems as justs the other day a Team of Global Projects missionaries went in February 2010 to evaluate what our organization could do to help the people in their state of trauma and crisis. It was only in June 2010 we took a Team of 10 who brought the Train the Trainer Series addressing the grief and loss, PTSD, crisis counseling, depression to name a few. It was this Team of 10 who served in the heart of the ruins Port au Prince where we met and encourage men, women, children who wer still in shock and fear. Although, the year has come around we still are seeing the needs of so many people not being met. We encountered children and families outside the capital city who had not received any aid and were eating only one time per week. We bought food and served the children and watched their faces as their were satisfied and their stomachs filled. We brought school supplies and items to school children who wanting to learn were not sure where their materials for learning was coming from. We as an organization is committed to help the hurting of Haiti over a 3-5 year period. We will continue our brand of crisis training and intervention with our Series giving the lay people, professionals, clergy, social workers and doctors the resources to meet the need of the people. We are set to go back to Haiti 3 times per year and we will not rest until we can help as many people as we can.
Global Projects first response Team is typical of our protocol to do a reconnaisance visit and see what the real needs of the people and then bring what resources and materials we can to eradicate the loss or emotional needs. Our God is to always "Touch and Transform Lives through the Word and Counseling Resources." We work on the premise that all people are valuable and how the Lord leads us to be servants to the global community we count it an honor and will do our best to represent excellence in all we do.
Although, this not a time to celebrate the one year earthquake, it is a time to reflect and ask what more can we do to alleviate the suffering our our fellowman? Until our Lord returns He is expecting us, the Body of Christ to be His hands, feet, mouth and heart in the earth. Let us all be found faithful to serving each other.
