For many around the world, a disaster in another country grabs our attention as long as media covers it. We are moved to pray, often to give, and sometimes even to send a relief team. Thank you, Lord, for your Church worldwide that has done all this and helped meet the enormous needs before us!
At the same time, in the Caribbean we have not forgotten the devastation of the recent hurricanes that have destroyed many of our islands. Long after television crews have left, the hard work of rebuilding is still taking place. And it will be so for months and years to come in places like Puerto Rico, Dominica, and St. Maarten. Nazarene Compassionate Ministries has released three videos in the past month that show how those three countries are still reeling. However, at the end of the videos they have chosen to highlight images of hope: a smile of a woman who has lost her home, a congregation praying and embracing, a pastor standing at his pulpit even with his church walls demolished around him. You can be a part of this rebuilding process still. You can help bring hope to thousands of hurting families in these places. Please visit www.ncm.org for more information.
Here are the videos. Let’s not forget. Let’s act.
