My heart is broken … yesterday was a bad day for the poor in Honduras. My friend Marc Tindall, our missionary from Honduras that coordinates all our work there, called yesterday to say he’d been robbed right after leaving the bank. Two men on motorcycles grabbed Marc’s backpack that he’d just filled with money to pay for 4 houses for the poor in Honduras (about $7500). In the process of the whole ordeal, it also left Marc’s vehicle wrecked. What bothered Marc was now he was going to have to tell 4 families, that desperately need homes this summer, “Sorry, you don’t get a house now.” I hate it when children and the poor suffer because of evil …
The only thing I can think of doing is having some kind of “online” fundraiser. I don’t want to just “feel sorry” for them. I don’t want to just trust that someone is going to do something. I think God calls “you and I” to step up and do something … to do more than just pray … more than just feel compassion. We need to do something. We need to take action.
SO what If we get enough people to give $5, $10, $25 or $100 … we can have the money for 4 houses raised pretty quickly. Four families can have houses again.
