Cake Sale for Haiti

18 January 2010 No Comment

Well done to the young people of TRAX, FNT and Piepline who baked cakes and sold them at the Abbey last Sunday to raise money for the Haiti Earthquake appeal. £267 was raised and it will be banked tomorrow morning in the DEC’s bank account.

Reports of the earthquake in Haiti this week have left us all with the deeply shocking news that tens of thousands may be dead and approximately 3 million lives affected. As international relief teams continue to arrive in Port-au-Prince it’s good to remember that we can play our own part in this relief effort. First in prayer for the people, governmental leaders and the church of Haiti. Also by financial donation to the DEC (Disasters Emergency Committee) on 0370 60 60 900 or online at DEC donate_now. The DEC represents 13 humanitarian agencies including Save the Children, CAFOD, WorldVision and Christian Aid. Below is Christian Aid’s prayer for Haiti:

A prayer for Haiti

Loving God of creation,
at this time of devastation
we hold before you the people of Haiti.
When the damage is unimaginable,
and the suffering seems overwhelming,
remind us that every person affected
is loved, honoured and precious in your sight.
We remember all those who have been hurt;
all who have lost their homes, livelihoods and loved ones.
Work through us to bring healing
to broken and distorted lives,
peace to those who have been thrown into despair,
light to those in darkness,
and hope to those who fear.
We ask this in the name of Jesus
in whom all life and grace is found.
Amen
