Haiti—What Nations Give?

Dear Readers,  Please watch this encouraging child rescue video.  Be patient, don’t touch anything and it will appear after a period of time.  
We were informed in our church bulletin regarding God’s protection of missionaries in Haiti. Many miracles incite rejoicing. We also note the fact, God’s name is being uplifted even in secular media reporting. Yes, there are countless sad stories as well.  Massive grief is everywhere in this nation rated as one of the most corrupt in the world.  
It is also drenched in witchcraft and has suffered greatly over the years enduring many disasters especially hurricanes. Haitians need Jesus Christ and may this be a cause for many to turn to Him. 
Our Sunday School teacher pointed out today that Saudi Arabia is offering no aid to Haiti. He stated something to the effect that Islamic beliefs allow little regard for human life. Within the list of those providing aid, I did not note one single Muslim controlled nation.
It is clear, America still owns a heart of compassion for human life, believing it to be sacred, it is sacrificing the most in aid.  Yes, America is falling fast from its Christian heritage, but we still have much to give thanks for in this great country. Through our government causes us sadness through godless agendas, it still allows every American to give to disasters through taxation.
