Watch. PRAY. Give.

Haiti is never far from our thoughts this week. It feels like we're constantly breathing prayers of "Oh God, help Haiti...God help Haiti." Everything else seems trivial in comparison.

PLEASE take a few minutes to watch this new music video by Aaron Ivey. Our youngest sister Emily has the privilege of doing life and music with him at their church Austin Stone. The Ivey family brought their daughter home from Haiti this past fall, but their son is still there. The orphanage where he lives in Haiti is going through unspeakable trials right now. Their son is safe, but they don't know yet whether the earthquake will further delay their already 2 year long wait to get him, or speed things up. We can't imagine all that they've been through this last week. We've been praying for this amazing family who we've only met once. If you haven't given your prayers and money to Haiti relief, we ask that you REALLY, REALLY think about it. They need our help. We have so much.

If you want to learn even more about the Ivey family, watch their story on CNN here. We also blogged about them and how you can help earlier this week here. Another great organization besides the ones already mentioned is Samaritan's Purse run by Franklin Graham.
