Help for Haiti

Hurricane Matthew left an incredible path of destruction in many areas during the past week, particularly in Haiti.

Click here to see more images like the one above, from Jérémie, Haiti.

Hundreds of people died in that country. Dozens have died in the United States. It was a powerful storm and the damage has been done.

Now, it’s time to help.

“How can I help?”

For starters, pray. Pray for the safety and health of everyone who survived the storms. Cholera is a growing concern in Haiti and it is hard to say what lies in the debris left behind. Pray that hope will overcome despair and that relief supplies will be made available to the people who desperately need them.

Donate to charitable efforts; just make sure the charity you choose will be spending the money specifically for storm relief before sending the donation.

No doubt there will be mission trips to Haiti to help the people, there. That is something to consider as well.

Thank you to everyone, everywhere who has helped people in the wake of this storm. Praying for everyone in Haiti and all places impacted by Hurricane Matthew. God’s still in control! No hurricane, no anything is bigger than He is.

 

Hurricane Charley – Ten Years Later

As ‘Throwback Thursdays’ go, this one has a lot of meaning for me. I’m taking you back 10 years to August 14, 2004 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina…

Yes that’s me, reporting as Hurricane Charley came ashore that day. It was the highlight of my¬†television news¬†career and a day I’ll never forget.

Here’s some more footage from our day-long live broadcast on WPDE NewsChannel 15.

Have a great day everyone.

Brighter Days

‘Life’s not easy when you live with your heart open wide.

So I keep it locked inside. Oh I keep it locked inside.

But I can’t outrun Your affection.

Your love it breaks me down.

Oh I’ve gotta face this fight.

So won’t You come and break my pride?

Until there’s nothing left to hide.

Oh, come rushing like a hurricane.

Come lead me through the flood and flame.

Don’t let me walk away.

Oh, I need you like the iron needs fire.

Don’t leave me ’til the final fight, ’til we see brighter days.’

-Eddie Kirkland
