Parts of HAITI, CUBA and other countries in the Caribbean were totally devastated by hurricane Matthew. The death toll in Haiti alone has risen above 800 at the time of my writing this post.
I am using this medium to get the word out. We should give assistance.
At present, a lot of controversy surrounds certain AID organizations because of alleged mismanagement of relief funds.
With that said, this post that I’m re-blogging lists quite a few organizations that seem legitimate and are in the right place to help the people who are suffering.
Bear in mind, we should still do our own checks on the organizations before giving. We must ensure that we #HelpHaitians #HelpCubans and #HelpHaiti #HelpCuba instead of sending relief to organizations that may mismanage aid efforts.
We are commanded in the Holy Bible to love and to take care of people genuinely. We must avoid condescension, avarice and selfishness.
We need to help our fellow human beings who’ve experienced disaster and catastrophe in their lives.
Friends, fans and followers, please find it in your hearts to assist the Haitian, Cuban and other Caribbean people who have suffered so much. Every little bit helps. I pray God’s blessings on all.
Disaster time again, for our sisters and brothers in Haiti. Already the vultures circle, using this tragedy as another opportunity to take advantage or worse, to engage in the pornography of suffering black bodies.
Now is not the time for tears, hand-wringing, there are lots of organisations that are quietly doing good work in Haiti that does not line the pockets of multinational aid corporations, or continue to fatten the Port au Prince elite.
The following is a list I’ve compiled thanks to friends in Haiti and its diaspora. Please do your own research on the organisations listed below. I’ll keep updating it as more info emerges.

People need to hear the truth contained in the Word of God, to the edification of their souls.
It is enervating to see, in present day, the continued trend inherent in the church’s style-of-preaching (and teaching).
There is this seduction of feeling (though not in ALL) that draws souls away to the slumber zone; to destruction and not to edification.
Paul had to communicate similarly to the Corinthian Church three times:
“Therefore I write these things being absent, lest being present I should use sharpness, according to the power which the Lord hath given me to edification, and not to destruction.” ~2 Corinthians 13:10, AuthorizedKJV
Today’s messages feel good and appeal to the soul, but do little to change the soul or transform the mind to the mind of Christ. We are supposed to have the mind of Christ, ARE WE NOT?
“For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.” ~ 1 Corinthians 2:16, AuthorizedKJV
The mind needs to be renewed to take on the mind of Christ. Renewal comes by being edified from the Word of God. The scripture urges us to be transformed by renewing our minds and to NOT be like the world system.
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” ~ Romans 12:2, AuthorizedKJV
The feel-good gospel is like a Sunday pill that wears off on Monday. People go back to the carnal weekly routines and pine for next Sunday’s fix.

FAST & PRAY (for the best way through enemy territory)
Imagine you’re a ten year old who has to walk to and from school everyday. Now imagine that twice daily on this journey you have to literally tiptoe downwind past a yard of vicious dogs. Wouldn’t you consider this enemy territory?
In our daily lives we travel through “enemy territory” regularly. Our experiences may be different in context and severity but we can all relate to having to pass through “hostile territory” fearing getting mauled and robbed.
So how can we ensure that we are completely protected when we have to navigate through enemy territory? Consider this, Ezra wanted to return to Jerusalem and had finally persuaded some of the exiles to leave Babylon and go home with him. He also had a lot of temple treasures to carry.
Ezra knew the journey (from Babylon through Palestine to Jerusalem) would be dangerous because of robbers and enemies along the way, and he didn’t want to ask the king of Babylon for soldiers, so he proclaimed a fast to seek God’s provision specifically for the journey.
“Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the river of Ahava, that we might afflict ourselves before our God, to seek of him a right way for us, and for our little ones, and for all our substance. For I was ashamed to require of the king a band of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy in the way: because we had spoken unto the king, saying, The hand of our God is upon all them for good that seek him; but his power and his wrath is against all them that forsake him. So we fasted and besought our God for this: and he was intreated of us.” Ezra 8:21-23 Auth.KJV
Here is something to consider: Ezra didn’t want to ask the king for help because during his time in the king’s court he had preached about God’s protection over those who seek Him. Asking the king for help, instead of trusting God, would be denying the power he had preached about.
It would have been a two-fold denial: 1. denying God before men; and 2. denying God to God’s face. Ezra had to walk the talk not just talk the talk so he went to the source: his Heavenly Father.
Ezra’s fast was very specific. The purpose was to seek “a right way” for three specific things: the grown ups, the children, and all their property.
This right way was literally an even way, specifically referring to an unobstructed way. Ezra asked God for the unobstructed and most fortunate way through the territory of his enemies and God granted his request because he had prayed and fasted for it.
“Then we departed from the river of Ahava on the twelfth day of the first month, to go unto Jerusalem: and the hand of our God was upon us, and he delivered us from the hand of the enemy, and of such as lay in wait by the way.“ Ezra 8:31 Auth.KJV
