My heart is breaking for the people of China. It staggers my imagination that 12,000 people are reported dead with many more expected. The loss is too big for me to grasp.

I would like to donate money to help the victims, but I'm not sure which agency to give to. Mercy Corps came up in my search. Does anyone know anything about them, or have any other ideas of how to help?

I urge all to pray for the Chinese people, as well as for the Burmese who have just experienced the devastating cyclone. I can't be there in person, but my God can.



  1. China is in my prayers...

    Here is a book that I recently heard about. It's been getting rave reviews, and you can have a peek on Amazon: Safely Home by Randy Alcorn

    Might be something to add the the wish list....

  2. i'm thinking/praying for them as well....

  3. Lisa,

    I looked it up on Amazon, and you're right: it looks like a great book. I'm going to search for it on eBay or Thanks for the tip!
