Searching For The Savior Saturday
This is a copy of an e-mail that I received this week from the missions organization, New Directions International. I just wanted to pass it along to you. Please feel free to visit their website for updates as well as The International Mission Board. Their link in on the sidebar.
Greetings from New Directions. Thank you so much for your email. I am sorry that it has taken us so long to respond. We have been working very hard and are overwhelmed with Haiti relief like many other organizations. It would be wonderful if you could link us onto your blog and other posts that you do. We have numerous pictures and stories on our website that you can pull from and link too. We are trying to update these about every 2 days as information continues to come into us from our partners. Our web site is www.newdirections.org and www.feedthehunger.org. Currently we have two staff members who are working their way down to Haiti and we will be taking numerous teams down there in the coming weeks and months. All of this information is on our website.
NDI has been working in Haiti for over 35 years. Currently we are caring for over 2000 at-risk children daily. About every other month we are sending in a container of food that has 270,000 servings of food. Our Haiti warehouse is full of food and we are working desperately to get the food out to the needy people.
Thank you for the wonderful work that you are doing in spreading the message about Haiti. NDI greatly appreciates the work that you are doing and allowing us to link with your ministry.
