Earthquake Relief Update

Friday, January 15, 2010 -- This morning Leisa and I leave for Port au Prince on an earthquake relief mission. With your help we've been able to collect over $10,000 in medical supplies in the past 48 hours. We hope to deliver the supplies to The Lamp, a free clinic we support in Cite Soleil, Haiti's largest and most desperate slum. The outpouring of generosity and solidarity from our Children's Hope family has been overwhelming. We are devastatd by the incomprehensible loss of life and suffering occuring in Haiti. But on this, the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we travel to Haiti inspired by his mighty Dream of love an compassion for all of God's children, and strengthened by all of you who have made this humanitarian mission possible. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. As our Haitian friends say, "Many hands make the burden lighter!" -- Paul Burke
