I’m not sure who said, “If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail.” Whoever said it is/was absolutely right (first heard it from my mom ). In the midst of all that’s happening- church planting, writing my first book, etc, my heart has been very concerned about the people of Haiti. And so should yours. I’m not going to debate about why this person or that person should have or should not have made certain comments. I’m just going to focus on what’s in my power to do.
In an effort to help in a tangible way the people of Haiti I’ve called a meeting today during lunch to see what the possibilities are to aid in the relief process. Mission Harvest is doing phenomenal work locally to send resources to those on the ground in the country. Those in the meeting today come from a diverse background in areas of expertise- education, ministry, missions, technical/logistics, etc. It should be an interesting and very productive meeting today.
Most of the colleges and universities in Jacksonville will be out for Spring Break mid-March. Hmmmm….what is the likelihood that students from the higher education institutions use their week break to go with a well trained team to Haiti? That’ what I want to find out.
Yes, I really want to help. But the last thing I want to do is not walk in wisdom concerning this effort. So let the planning begin……
