Haiti relief

My friend, Amy, at A Scrapbook of Sorts, has challenged her readers to blog about their efforts toward Haiti relief. She's giving $1 to Compassion for everyone who blogs about it and adds their name to her Mister Linky.

We have chosen to send money to Bethany Christian Services. They run two orphanages in Haiti. All of the children and staff are safe. But I'm certain they will have many more children to add to their homes soon. The director of one of those orphanages did an interview on the Today Show on Wednesday.

James 1:27 tells us, "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."

Please do what you can.

(As a side note to my readers who don't have the best impression of evangelical Christians, please know that most of us disagree with Pat Robertson's assessment of Haiti's situation.)

Thank you for posting, Jennie! I think that keeping this on people's minds is a big deal. And thank you for linking up!
