Let’s all take some time to pray for the people of Haiti today and for those who are offering aid. As God would put on your heart to respond, we are recommending sending support through Samaritan’s Purse Canada – www.samaritanspurse.ca. See Video Below. They have been partnering with Christian organizations in Haiti for 15 years and Through Operation Christmas Child they have distributed over 200,000 shoe boxes since 1999. We’ll have more information on Sunday. Thanks in advance for those of you that will Walk Compassionately as we seek to be the church and to love and care in Jesus name.
Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
In the wake of the devastating earthquake that rocked Haiti, Samaritans Purse Canada is engaged in relief efforts to bring medical supplies, food, clean water and shelter to the thousands of Haitians that have been displaced by the quake.

On January 14, 2010, the Government of Canada announced that it will match dollar for dollar contributions of individual Canadians to eligible Canadian charitable organizations in support of humanitarian recovery and reconstruction efforts in Haiti up to a total of $50 million.
Which Donations Will Be Matched?
To qualify for matching, the donations must be:
- made by an individual Canadian (not a corporation or business) – the donation from an individual may not exceed $100,000;
- made to a registered Canadian charitable organization that is receiving donations in response to the January 12 Haiti earthquake;
- specifically earmarked for the purpose of responding to the earthquake; and,
- made between January 12 and February 12, 2010.
