All year long volunteers from Celebration Christian Church sponsor activities that both help others in the community and helps to raise funds for each volunteer to travel to Haiti to help. We search our hearts. We don't go to have a “great experience” or to help ourselves feel grateful for what we have back home or to take photos of hurting people.
Each one of us is part of a larger story, and it’s not about our week.
We give food, discipleship, education, and care. We give love. We give Jesus. We don’t give our culture. We don’t give America. We are not the savior of the world. We know only one Savior of the world, and his name is Jesus. Our work in Haiti is simply to support the awesome work that our missions group is already doing on the ground.
“If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth” 1 John 3:17-18.
