Watch this, please? It’s good. I promise.
The one thing I knew for sure when I went to Haiti as part of the blogging team with Help One Now, was that I didn’t want to come back and tell you stories about how hopeless the whole thing is. I didn’t want to wear you out with sad stories of tragedy and sadness. We all know the situation in Haiti is bad, especially since the earthquake.
But bad isn’t the same as hopeless.
On the fourth morning of our trip to Haiti, God intervened and flipped the script on us. Right in front of our eyes, He unfolded His purpose for our adventure, and we were blown away. One way to know a dream is from God is when you look at it and realize there’s no way it’s getting done without Him.
And we all know He uses us. He’s counting on us to make His dreams come true.
So, we’re building a school for the 150 children who attend classes at the Yaveh Shemah Home for Children in Haiti. Yep. Just like that. God’s got this dream, and He’s inviting us to be the people who make His dream come true.
The goal? A whopping $100,000. By Christmas. We want to break ground in January, and open the school for the start of classes in 2013. I told you…it’s God’s idea. He does things big. And won’t it be spectacular to know you got to play a part?
So, here’s what I’m asking you to do:
- Please go here, and back the current phase of The Legacy Project with a donation – large or small, every bit counts.
- If you haven’t already, please create a Pure Charity account. That way, you can extend your giving whenever you shop online. (Not sure what this means? Go here for a recap.)
- Invite your friends to join the movement (after all, how will you be able to face them if they find out you built a school in Haiti and didn’t invite them to the party?).
- Watch God do something amazing.
