Truly Help Chile

I will be spending the last week of April in Santiago, Chile at the ministry started by Jason Holt. My family prays for the Holt family on a daily basis and love them as fellow church members, friends, and co-workers. I have looked forward to this trip for sometime now. Here recently watching his churches response to the earthquake in Chile  I have become so much more excited about seeing the ministry there. Nothing shows the strength of a church more than seeing what they feel responsibility for. Churches that see a national disaster and know they have a spiritual responsibility to the lost and a civil responsibility to the hurting shows that they are a church that is not just concerned with their own comfort.

If you are looking for a way to get involved in helping hurting fellow believers in Chile and getting the Gospel to the dying – here is your chance!

Today we got word from some of the hardest hit areas of Chile around the city of Concepcion.  People literally do not have water, bread, food, and in some cases a roof over their heads.  There are people living in one of the local churches because their homes are no longer standing.

To help in the incredible need, we plan to travel from Santiago to Concepción on Thursday morning (in less than 32 hours) with a team of eight men to accomplish two goals:

1. We plan to distribute over 40,000 gospel tracks to those who are suffering and need the hope of Christ.  As God gives us the opportunity we will preach the gospel on the streets and in local parks.

2. We’re also taking food and medical supplies to help many who are suffering through this tragedy.

To accomplish these two goals, WE NEED YOUR HELP! Today you can donate funds to purchase food and medical supplies to help with this urgent need online through Paypal.

Go here and donate now!!
