If it seems that my blog is filled with links to other blogs lately, that's because it is. If you think that's because I don't have the time and mental fortitude to write an honest-to-goodness blogpost right now, you're right. Since we've gotten that out of the way...
Haiti is in the tops of most people's minds lately, especially since yesterday's 6.1 earthquake followed the original 7.0. Although we're giving our thoughts, prayers, and hopefully funds in order to help a hurting country, there are some who are going above and beyond that call in order to put their feet on the ground and help in a palpable way. One of those people is my good friend, Mandi.
Mandi traveled to Haiti and lived there for six months after high school, helping the people and sparking a life-long love and desire to return. Between the Army, marriage, and two gorgeous boys, she hasn't been given the opportunity she's hoped for. Now, with this horrible catastrophe, Mandi believes that she has the preparation (through nursing school), the blessing, and the heart to go to Haiti. All she lacks at this point is the funding.
If you feel that Mandi would be a benefit to the people of Haiti (something which I am very sure of, knowing her heart), please donate to her funds. After her travel expenses are paid, all funds exceeding that need will be donated directly to Heartline Ministries to further aid the Haitian people.
Please go over to Mandi's Blog for more information and to listen to her heartcries for Haiti. Thanks!
