Missionaries Living in Haiti Need Our Help
The picture above is of a missionary named Leslie, who lives in Haiti right now with her husband and adopted daughter, Olivia(pictured with her) . I was contacted by Renea, a faithful Ordinary Hero supporter, of about this missionary family that lives in Haiti right now with their adopted daughter. I encourage you to visit Renea's blog where she tells of her experience in Haiti herself with pictures of her sponsored child and her friends, Chris and Leslie with their daughter, Olivia. At the bottom of her post there is a donate link which will all go directly to supporting Chris and Leslie and their unbelievable efforts to bring relief in so many areas in Haiti right now.
I also encourage you to visit Chris and Leslie's blog. Chris tells the story of having just left Port-Au-Prince when the earthquake hit. He witnessed a school collapsing on teen girls who were then trapped as he struggled to try to help free them. It is heartwrenching to say the least.
I know I have sat and stared at the horror on tv, just wanting to be able to do something. Now we have a direct connection to people living there in the middle of it, doing the best they can now to help in every way they can. They need funds now more than ever. Let's all rally together and support them any way we can.
Thank you so much.
