So Appropriate, for such a time as this, so Moving and Heart Wrenching

When you get an opportunity please listen to this track, it's called "Pain" by Da Truth, really good song!!

I'm Praying for you Haiti!!!

Quote from Video:
~Driscoll states to Haitian Pastor “...You love Jesus, you teach the Bible, you marry a woman, you have 4 children, you're serving the Lord in ministry, and now you're wife is gone, your Church is gone, your home is gone, your Bible college is gone, why do you smile, where is your joy...”

~Haitian Pastor answers “...Well, it's from the Lord...”

This video of snapshots and clips of footage is so moving, my heart truly goes out to the Haitians, believe it or not, I am more embarrassed of our American Culture. How neglectful, selfish, and self-centered we are in this Country. The they had a awful experience, I have seen more positive responses from the suffering than Americans, who don't even know the half!

It is truly well in their soul, what an appropriate song! Praise God for Churches Helping Churches Organization, and of course Mark Driscoll and James Macdonald on the forefront!

Deuteronomy 8
Remember the Lord Your God

8 “The whole commandment that I command you today you shall be careful to do, that you may live and multiply, and go in and possess the land that the Lord swore to give to your fathers. 2 And you shall remember the whole way that the Lord your God has led you these forty years in the wilderness, that he might humble you, testing you to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep his commandments or not. 3 And he humbled you and a let you hunger and fed you with manna, which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that he might make you know that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. 4 Your clothing did not wear out on you and your foot did not swell these forty years. Know then in your heart that, as a man disciplines his son, the Lord your God disciplines you. 6 So you shall keep the commandments of the Lord your God by walking in his ways and by fearing him. 7 For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing out in the valleys and hills, 8 a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and honey, 9 a land in which you will eat bread without scarcity, in which you will lack nothing, a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills you can dig copper. 10 And you shall eat and be full, and you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land he has given you.

Praise the Lord!
