Haiti Mission

Sandra emailed me this morning with a WONDERFUL idea she found on the Baptist Haiti Mission's website (the mission where Ti-Fam found Jesus!). I encouraged her to call the mission and get details so we could get started. You can go here and check it out yourself. But here's the deal. The Haiti mission has a program where children can sponsor a child in Haiti by READING. Each American student can find people to sponsor them per hour of reading and then that money sponsors a child in school in Haiti. But as Sandra talked to one of the women at the mission, she said they would be happy to accept your children's reading donation for the DISASTER RELIEF EFFORT in which they are engaged. The tools to do this are on the website. Another exciting thing I found out this morning is that this mission is working in conjunction with Samaritan's Purse.
I've contacted all of the schools in Borger, Fritch & Stinnett and asked them to be a part of this. You can do it with your students where you live. Homeschool students can do this. You could even have a contest between classes or schools.
And it will teach your children that because we have much, we should share much. I hope you'll be a part!

The mission is distributing large pieces of plastic for people to use as temporary shelter.

Samaritan's Purse arrived and were able to unload all of their cargo without incident.
