“Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
Before posting this I realized the great need to stress my aim in doing so. And that aim is not to display my “good deeds” or “great works” but to make known to you the great needs that still lie within the post-earthquake, rubble covered, poverty stricken country of Haiti. I post this to be a voice for the mute, to defend the rights of the poor and needy.
As I went, the question I was asking myself was “what needed to be done?” but as I witnessed the poverty and destruction firsthand I found the more appropriate question being “what doesn’t need to be done?” With an 80 percent unemployment rate and numerous families still living in tents or on the streets I realized that the opportunities were endless.
My prayer and my hope is that in watching this many more would have their hearts stirred and get involved by supporting, sending or joining.
