A Letter from NMSI:
As in other times of disaster around the globe, NMSI has established a mechanism whereby people in the United States and around the world can participate financially in our efforts to minister the Gospel through practical, concrete efforts aimed at reducing the incredible suffering during this time.
In the wake of the devastating earthquake in Haiti, New Mission Systems International is joining the global missions community in responding with an outpouring of aid and assistance. Today, NMSI leadership met to define a multi-phase response to the crisis.
NMSI will devote funds to the broader immediate relief needs in Haiti both through our own missionaries and also through strategic partnerships with other ministries whose mission to live out the Gospel of Jesus is consistent with our own .
NMSI is developing a longer term plan for restoration and recovery once the immediate relief situation is stabilized. The extent of the devastation is so deep and broad that it doesn’t make sense for churches or individuals to consider travel to Haiti immediately, as much as their hearts may be drawing them there. This is a situation which requires the largest of relief organizations including the United Nations, the Red Cross, and even the efforts of entire nations to respond.
However, once the immediate needs are being addressed and some stability has been restored, there will be great opportunity for Christians in the United States and around the world to participate in the restoration of that nation through building projects, development projects, etc. NMSI will be well positioned to use the financial resources given by individual and church partners as well as to facilitate the active participation of churches and other teams in the restoration effort to come.
So, as you can see, you can have an immediate and lasting impact on the relief and restoration of Haiti by giving through New Mission Systems International. Please visit the NMSI website at http://nmsi.org/donate.aspx to donate.”
