Texas Baptist response to the earthquake in Haiti


More than 3 million Haitians were left standing in rubble after a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck the capital city of Haiti Tuesday.

And Texas Baptists are seeking ways to pour hope into the nation.
“At this time, we are gathering donations to be used by Texas Baptists disaster relief to meet the needs of the people who are suffering in Haiti,” said Bill Arnold, president of the Texas Baptists Missions Foundation and Texas Baptists disaster response coordinator.

“This is an opportunity for Texas Baptists to minister in the name of Jesus to people who are suffering and who do not have the hope of Christ in their lives. We hope that in addition to meeting human needs that everything done will bring glory to God. In the end, we hope to see that more Haitians have come to know the love of Christ.”
