IMMEDIATE HELP NEEDED FOR HAITIAN ORPHANS!

IMMEDIATE HELP NEEDED FOR HAITIAN ORPHANS!

Last week I had a scheduled trip to Miami, Florida to tend to several ministry issues and projects that are pertinent to our church in the upcoming months.  I seldom use terms like these, but I truly believe that God positioned me for a very specific moment in time and for a very specific need.

The Ethiopian eunuch who encountered Philip in the desert didn’t know what was coming his way.  He had just left a “religious” experience in Jerusalem, yet he remained confused about God’s plan for his life.  Who ever would have dreamed that God had “teleported” a man into the desert at the exact moment the eunuch’s chariot was passing by?  At that moment, God’s timing was irrefutable.

I believe that a similar moment has occurred.  For several weeks, I had been prescheduled to visit a children’s home in Miami called His House.  Little did I know that when I walked though the door I would encounter a frantic hustle and bustle of activity.  The reason for all the madness?  They had just received a phone call that soon they are going to take in over 90 Haitian orphans in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake.

His House is located on a 220-acre campus that is riddled with old government buildings constructed in the 1960’s.  I toured the campus and walked through several abandoned buildings that had been boarded up for many years.  These buildings are the locations where these precious Haitian orphans will lay down their heads to sleep.  I knew that I was there for a specific purpose: to prepare the homes that will house these children.

The repairs and supplies needed are mostly cosmetic . . . things like paint, fixtures, and appliances.  I am going back to Miami next week with a team of men to begin the actual repairs and upgrades to the facilities.  Furthermore, we have begun a drive to acquire basic items that these children will need . . . pillows, car seats, blankets, etc.

All that being said, I need you . . . the children need you!  We have established a 501c(3) charitable organization called A Work Of Life, which is ready and equipped for online financial donation.  Go to http://www.aworkoflife.com/His_House.html to learn more about His House and to make your contribution.  When you make your tax-deductible donation, simply click His House under the drop down menu.  All monies given will go towards helping to prepare the facilities for these Haitian orphans.  We may not be able to physically travel to Haiti, but God has brought Haiti to us.

Thank you again for your prayers and consideration in this time-sensitive matter.  The children have already started arriving and we are moving quickly to meet this need.  This is our desert and the chariot is passing by.  Please forward this email and links, tweets, Facebook messages, etc. to anyone you think may be interested in helping.  Together, we can help to change the lives of these children.

For Life,

Andrew Wharton
