Thank God For Christians And Their Love

Please take a moment and pray for those in Haiti and for all those group going to Haiti to help them in their time of need. I have heard of many Churches and organization,mostly Christian) going over to Haiti to help. The Christian organizations are already in place and doing good for these poor people. If you know of any organizatioons going to Haiti to help please let us know who and what they are doing. Now I said Christian many times and after the Tsunami it was also mostly Christians that went and helped those mostly Muslim countries. Please let me and the others know of any Islamic organizations that are or will be going to help the Hatians. If you have it to give please help these people. This is a chance for us Christians to show the world that we are love and that we love our fellow men as much as ourselves. This will also show us out of all the imperfect religions in the world which ones are of Love. This could be a chance for us to judge the actions of the religions like Islam and Christianity by the deeds and actions rather then by what they say. Not only don't Christians blow up people but they will come to their rescue no matter what their religion. Lets see what the other religions do and then we will see if the liberals are right about Christians in general.


  1. There are 1,313 Christian organizations helping out the Haitians. There hasn't been one Islamic orgaization yet. I'll see what I can find out about Muslim countries helping. But it's still early.

  2. Nice article Chris. Check this one out if you get a chance:

  3. The ISNA has set up a Haiti fund.

    Pat Robertson hasn't yet though. BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!

  4. Take a good look at the whole picture when all is said and done. Christians always give and help others in greater numbers then any other religious group. And the mean hateful America you libs are always talking about always gives more then any other nation. Did you know Joe that there is already 1300 Christian organizations giving to Haiti? You named one that isn't. BWWAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA last. I would even venture to say that the UAW members give more then any Islamic group. It's the American and Christian way. But you keep pushing you anti America anti Christian BS. You will be rewarded for it. Maybe reward isn't the right word.

  5. Chris, I couldn't find a number of Islamic organizations giving to relief efforts in Haiti, but here are some Islamic groups that are taking donations. This is not an exhaustive list, by the way.

    I'm sure you didn't bother to do even a simple Google search, did you, Chris?

  6. PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti: Hundreds of U.S. troops touched down in shattered Port-au-Prince overnight as U.N. and other aid organizations struggled Friday to get food and water to stricken millions. Fears spread of unrest among the Haitian people in their fourth day of desperation.

    Looters roamed downtown streets, young men and boys with machetes. "They are scavenging everything. What can you do?" said Michel Legros, 53, as he waited for help to search for seven relatives buried in his collapsed house.

    Hard-pressed government workers, meanwhile, were burying thousands of bodies in mass graves. The Red Cross estimates 45,000 to 50,000 people were killed in Tuesday's cataclysmic earthquake.

    More and more, the focus fell on the daunting challenge of getting aid to survivors. United Nations peacekeepers patrolling the capital said people's anger was rising that aid hasn't been distributed quickly, and warned aid convoys to add security to guard against looting.

    On Friday morning, no sign was seen of foreign assistance entering the downtown area, other than a U.S. Navy helicopter flying overhead.

    Ordinary Haitians sensed the potential for an explosion of lawlessness. "We're worried that people will get a little uneasy," said attendant Jean Reynol, 37, explaining his gas station was ready to close immediately if violence breaks out.

    "People who have not been eating or drinking for almost 50 hours and are already in a very poor situation," U.N. humanitarian spokeswoman Elisabeth Byrs said in Geneva. "If they see a truck with something, or if they see a supermarket which has collapsed, they just rush to get something to eat."

    The quake's destruction of Port-au-Prince's main prison complicated the security situation. International Red Cross spokesman Marcal Izard said some 4,000 prisoners had escaped and were freely roaming the streets.

    "They obviously took advantage of this disaster," Izard said.

    But Byrs said peacekeepers were maintaining security despite the challenges. "It's tense but they can cope," she said.

    The U.N. World Food Program said post-quake looting of its food supplies long stored in Port-au-Prince appears to have been limited, contrary to an earlier report Friday. It said it would start handing out 6,000 tons of food aid recovered from a damaged warehouse in the city's Cite Soleil slum.

    A spokeswoman for the Rome-based agency, Emilia Casella, said the WFP was preparing shipments of enough ready-to-eat meals to feed 2 million Haitians for a month. She noted that regular food stores in the city had been emptied by looters.

    More than 100 paratroopers of the U.S. 82nd Airborne Division arrived at the Port au Prince airport overnight, boosting the U.S. military presence to several hundred on the ground here, and others have arrived off Port-au-Prince harbor on the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson.

    Helicopters have been ferrying water and other relief supplies off the Vinson into the airport, U.S. military officials said.

    "We have much more support on the way. Our priority is getting relief out to the needy people," Lt. Gen. Ken Keen, deputy commander of the U.S. Southern Command, told ABC's "Good Morning America."

    The command said other paratroopers and Marines would raise the U.S. presence to 8,000 troops in the coming days. Their efforts will include providing security, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said.

    Hundreds of bodies were stacked outside the city morgue, and limbs of the dead protruded from the rubble of crushed schools and homes. A few workers were able to free people who had been trapped under the rubble for days, including a New Jersey woman, Sarla Chand, 65, of Teaneck, freed by French firefighters Thursday from the collapsed Montana Hotel. But others attended to the grim task of using bulldozers to transport loads of bodies.

  7. Christian relief organization Samaritan's Purse is sending disaster experts to Haiti, as is the Friend Ships ministry.

    So far, the ministry has sent a chartered DC-3 loaded with disaster relief supplies to the Caribbean nation, which was decimated by an earthquake on Tuesday. Ken Isaacs, head of international projects for Samaritan's Purse, explains the steps they are taking.

    "We are responding to the earthquake by sending about 24 people down to Haiti that includes experts in shelter, water, logistics, and security, and doctors [and] medical teams," he says.

    According to the ministry spokesman, the needs in Haiti are too numerous to mention, the cost of providing assistance is great, and response from Christians has been lightning fast.

    "Our phones have literally rung off the hooks," he shares. "In fact, we have a call center [where] we've received more calls today than we did during [Hurricane] Katrina and/or the [Southeast Asia] tsunami, and that's sort of surprising to us. There is deep interest -- and...folks can help, whether in a large way or smaller financial way, or with prayer."

    Isaacs expects relief efforts will continue for years.

    Setting sail for Haiti

    A ministry that uses ships to provide relief to areas worldwide will soon set sail for Haiti. Friend Ships provides Christian outreach around the world through a fleet of ocean going ships. One of its ships, Integrity, is being prepared to sail for Haiti. It will serve as a home base with housing and meal service for a team of relief personnel.

    Sondra Tipton, president of Friend Ships, says the earthquake has made a bad situation even worse. She is expecting several challenges.

    "Getting around is going to be rough," she says. "We have a helicopter, which is great because we'll be able to fly over and assess where can our trucks go, where will they get blocked, where's the greatest need. [And] we'll be able to move medical staff in with the helicopter -- and that's really going to help tremendously."

    According to Tipton, in disaster areas where people are desperate for supplies, security is always an issue. In those cases, she says, relief teams "have to set up in a way that food service, medical service, distribution of items is in a very controlled manner so that it doesn't get out of hand."

    In the aftermath of the quake, warnings have been issued about online scammers. Tipton suggests donors take caution to ensure their contributions will make it to those in need.

    "Make sure they're a group with a big track record and a legitimate standing," she offers. "If it's somebody that just sprung up overnight to help Haiti, I would -- unless you have a personal reference to them and know that they're doing good work -- I would steer away from that and go to more of a group that's well-established."

    The ministry leader says Friend Ships is in need of generators, rope, rice, beans, cooking oil, bottled water, and volunteers to go on future missions.

  8. I have seen some liberal blogs saying not to give money to Haiti. They said there are too many people living in Haiti and if they die it will be good for "Mother Earth". What is wrong with you people? They are not animals.

  9. Boboa, that is not true. I have not seen one liberal blog that has suggested not giving money to Haiti. Those are the conservative blogs that have been suggesting not to give money, and Rush Limbaugh.

    Show me one liberal blog saying that. Prove what you say idiot.


Please keep it clean and nice. Thank you for taking the time to post you thought. It means a lot to me that you do this.
