In scripture we often see how God commands us to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
“When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality.” ~ Romans 12:13, NLT
“Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.” ~ Romans 12:9-13, ESV
“And let our people learn to devote themselves to good works, so as to help cases of urgent need, and not be unfruitful.” ~ Titus 3:14, ESV
There are so many examples of people helping people. Lending a hand to help the less fortunate or those in need.
This blog is little off my normal topic which is food. But I’ve always had a givers heart. I learned at an early age it’s more blessing to give than receive.
The Bahamas has recently been the victims of the latest hurricane, Dorian.
Dorian has caused quite the devastation.
I wanted to take a minute to share how you can help with relief, supplies, help etc..
- Give to the Bahamas Red Cross: The Bahamas branch of the International Red Cross is requesting help with its Dorian relief program. Specifically, it’s looking for donations of nonperishable goods, water, toiletries, baby products, radios, batteries, candles, bedding, generators, building supplies, and, of course, cash. Make a donation here or volunteer your time here.
- Donate to the International Medical Corps: The global humanitarian nonprofit is sending medical teams to the Bahamas to provide medical care to Bahamians in need. Donations can be made here.
- Help fund Team Rubicon Disaster Response’s work: This international disaster relief nonprofit organization is made up of military veterans and first responders who do everything from rebuilding houses to clearing debris and helping organize large groups of volunteers. They were in the Bahamas early to help put up sandbags and board up windows and are now helping clean up and rebuild. Donate here.
- Support the City of Miami’s donation drive: Miami’s local government launched BahamaStrong, a city webpage that coordinates the collection of goods needed in the Bahamas recovery effort. Check out the list here.
The Bahamas is very dear to my husband and I’s heart. We enjoyed a lovely week of vacation and marital bliss 15 years ago for our honeymoon.
The Bahamas was filled with amazing scenic views, great service, friendly people and delicious food.
About 6 years ago we took our kiddo’s on a Disney Cruise and the Bahamas was one of our stops.
The girls absolutely enjoyed their time in the Bahamas.The Bahamas is a great vacation spot but it’s also home to many people. Please help in any way you can.
Let’s help the Bahamas get the help they need to start rebuilding.
