Red, Red, My Eyes Are Red

IMG_2785Haven’t I washed that red blouse multiple times already? How in the world did everything in my wash this morning turn out red? Red underwear, red slacks that used to be white that I wore with practically EVERYTHING. A green top which now looks like someone took a magic marker and randomly marked it with red stripes.

I once had an aunt who was obssessed with red. Aunt Jerutha had red furniture, red carpet, red and white checkered tile in her kitchen as well as red bedspreads and curtains. Yes, you’re probably wondering about her bathroom towels. You guessed it. Red! All that with a red car sitting in the driveway. Everything she wore was red and she even wore red glasses.

Well, there are worse things than having all red clothes (or furniture), I guess. There’s nothing sadder than to see tears flowing from the red eyes of a hungry child.  I recall the story of one young boy who sat on the curb waiting for school to begin. He was crying and his eyes were red. Pastor Lefort asked him what was wrong to which he replied, ”My mother didn’t give me anything to eat this morning.” Pastor Lefort gave him the only thing he had to give – a small pack of crackers. (This was before we had a feeding program in place.) That, along with many other stories, compelled us to pray until the Lord sent Orphans Promise to help us. What a miracle to see children who were once fainting in class, due to the heat and empty stomachs, eating a full plate of food! As a result of their eating, they’re able to learn much better.

Our schools are almost ready to open again in September. However, we still have to provide the gas tanks, salaries for the cooks, people to run to the marché to purchase gas tanks, spices, and cleaning products, plus supply the money to buy gas for those drivers. Whew! This costs us $3,100 a month and we truly need your help.

”I can only send $25”, you may say. Here’s why your $25 a month is so important. You would pave the way to encourage others to give. With your sacrificial monthly offering or even a one-time gift, others may say, ”Well, I can give $50 or $100.” You could be the catalyst, along with those who are already sowing into Haiti’s future, to encourage others to take that first step!

Whatever you can give, we know God will take it and multiply it. Will you help us eliminate those red, weepy eyes? Here’s how! The information is below and just be sure to add Haiti/Feeding Program to your check or a note if you give online. Would you do one more thing for us? Leave a note on our website or facebook pages saying, “I gave to Rehoboth’s feeding program and you can too!” Watch out though: You may develop red eyes from those tears of joy you shed knowing that you put food in the belly of a hungry child.
