God’s Mercy Flows from Your Hand
On 12th January, a 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck Haiti, a small Caribbean country. HISTEAM has initiated Haiti Disaster Relief Fund and managed to raise RM 82,856.60 due 30th April. We have channelled the total fund raised to Humanitarian International Services Group (HISG), an international disaster relief partner in United States. More updates of disaster relief and closing report will be published in the next issue.
On 14th April, Yushu in Qinghai was hit by severe earthquake of 7.1-magnitude. HISTEAM and CREST respond to it in collaboration. One Malaysian professional psychologist recommended by HISTEAM was sent to the disaster zone on 25th April for recce together with RM10,000 to bless the organization who worked at the front line, distributing emergency material aid. Here we would like to urge churches to respond to this urgent need by praying and offering. Don’t let God’s mercy and love freeze in your hand. Let us act according to His mind, stretch out our hand and comfort the pain of Yushu in our action.
