The news is full of the unimaginable suffering, death and devastation brought by the recent tsunamis caused by the second largest earthquake in recorded history. This catastrophic event is another reminder that, despite all of our goals and plans, our lives can be changed in an instant. What a blessing to daily place ourselves in the hands of our loving God and trust Him for our future. Our hearts and prayers go out to the people affected from the disaster as well as their rescuers and those bringing aid.

The officials in Indonesia have welcomed Help the Children's {Children's Network International's} response to this disaster. To date, we have shipped 4 container loads of food, medical supplies, and clean up supplies to help the relief efforts. We have committed to ship $4 million dollars in relief supplies in the months to come. A special thank you to our Help Indonesia volunteers who helped at our volunteer day to build our care boxes. If you would like to help us in this effort, please send your contribution with the word "tsunami" in the memo portion of your check. It takes a huge amount of funds to ship millions of dollars in aid, please be as generous as you can.
