“The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'” Matthew 25:40
The picture you see was taken by Pastor John Ackerman, our Church of God missionary in Haiti. For more pictures, including those that show the utter devastation, go to http://www.totheleastofthese.org/. I chose this picture because it is one that John titled, “The Resilience of Haitian Children.”
As a leader the thought has occurred to me time and again since the news broke of the earthquake in Haiti, “What do I have to complain about?!” Is servant leadership tough? Yes. Do you get tired of “herding sheep?” Sure. “Will it ever end?” Not until Jesus comes! Still, one look at these little girls who have nothing and are smiling as though they have it all and… enough said.
If you are unsure where to donate, just click on the picture above for a direct link to the Church of God Compassion Ministries Disaster Relief Fund. You can be sure that your donation will find its way into the hands of servants like John and Jodie Ackerman in order to help kids just like the two you see here.
I join you in continued prayer and am looking forward with you to supporting the relief efforts not only today, but in the months and years to come.
