Unplugged and Randomness

I've been away for a while, as I've had "family" in town....more on that later...meanwhile, enjoy the "randomness" below, and be blessed!

This is the video promotion for my pastor's soon-to-be-released book "Plan B"

"La'Union Fait La Force " - "Unity Makes Strength"
is the declaration on the Haitian flag. We saw firsthand God unifying thousands of people to bring about His light and hope on the island like Hands & Feet Project, Joy in Hope, Northwest Haiti Christian Mission, Haitian Christian Outreach and many others like them. Many pilots have volunteered their time, talents and planes to fly supplies to remote communities via dirt and gravel roads made into makeshift runways. Our missionaries have spent countless hours accessing needs, moving supplies, and coordinating relief. Many people have sacrificially donated funds to help the cause. We are so deeply thankful to each of you for stepping up and praying for and helping our brothers and sisters in great need.

• Raised over $1.3 million thanks to the generosity of many to provide emergency relief
• Sent over 560,000 lbs. of medicines, medical supplies, food, water, tents, doctors and emergency relief workers to partnering organizations in Haiti by small volunteer private planes and by boat
• Partnered with over 30 organizations in Haiti to send relief to
• Partnered with over 30 pilots who have volunteered their services and 16 small private planes to transport aid efficiently and effectively
• Flown into Jacmel, Pignon, Léogâne, Les Cayes, Port-Au-Prince, Pord-de-Paix, and Jérémie
• Partnered with Santiago International Airport which donated hangar space where we use a warehouse to run all supplies to the planes
• Collected over 150,000 lbs. of donated items in Louisville to send to Haiti.
For over 20 years, God has been using G.O. Ministries to bring relief and hope to desperate situations. From each of the seven nutrition centers that relieve hunger and spiritual pains of hundreds of children daily, to medical clinics that bring physical relief to the hurting, to the 50+pastors and Christian workers G.O. partners with to enable them to bring the relief of hope and provision to their communities. God is using G.O. to bring relief to the island and you have been a huge part in that. G.O. Ministries is committed to Haiti for the long-term.

Our plan for Haiti Relief is three-fold:

• To quickly address immediate emergency needs (we have done so through the 560,000 lbs. of relief efforts sent over so far)
• To transport emergency relief workers and doctors to remote areas
RELIEF: Current stage
• To access the growing needs due to refugees of the communities of our current Haitian Partners who pastor churches in central and Northeastern Haiti
• To access the needs of organizations in Haiti that we have had long-term relationships with
• To access the needs of new organizations we have come to know and better understand their growing needs
• To provide temporary shelter, purified water, and ongoing food needs
• To fulfill the assessments made in the Relief stage which will likely include rebuilding and providing sustainable aid
• To continue partnering with nationals across the island of Hispaniola to bring hope, aid, and restoration
