Thank you to all who donated to CRWRC’s Haiti Relief offering this past week.

Thank you for caring and thank you for sharing. As of this week, donations to the Christian Reformed World Relief Committee for the Haiti disaster response have already topped $2.1 million, and the money is continuing to come in, through church offerings and individual gifts, including almost $700,000 that has been donated online via the "Help Haiti" and CRWRC web sites. The money is being used by CRWRC to help to meet the immediate needs for food, water and shelter by distributing tarps and rice, beans, and pasta to more than 1,100 families in the Port-au-Prince area. It is also working to provide clean water. This is meeting short-term needs, but long-term needs are being assessed as well. For more information please refer to the letter in your church mail boxes from Rev. Jerry Dykstra, executive director of the CRC in North America. Thank you again!!

Persecuted Church

North Korea

Open Doors received news about the horrifying situation our brothers and sisters face in North Korea... which is #1 on Open Doors' World Watch List for the 8th year in a row. The report states that the North Korean government recently declared "100 Days of Combat." This means everyone must work for the state during this time of "mobilization." If someone is on the street without a valid reason, they are arrested and sent to a labor camp. Our contact person reports that the situation is dire... "People don't have much of an opportunity to keep themselves alive. It's normal again to see dead children on the street. Parents die or leave their children because they can no longer bear to see their sons and daughters starve." But he also says that in spite of the dire situation, Christians in North Korea are a shining light in this deep spiritual darkness. They are very brave. Secretly they share their faith with others and help others. And he tells us they plead for our help..."North Korean Christians recently held a secret prayer meeting. They came to the conclusion that it was important to continue with projects. They have asked us for more help, especially for fervent prayer."
