FM Bishop's Famine Relief Fund --Money for Haiti Relief Work

Judy Litsey writes to the Church:

We celebrate the generosity of worldwide Free Methodists as we come alongside our brothers and sisters in Haiti.

U.S. Free Methodist Church
As of January 26, $366,682 has been received from U.S. churches through the Help Haiti Heal fund and the Bishops Famine and Relief Fund. This figure will continue to grow as other offerings and gifts reach the FM finance office.

Free Methodists Around the World
Currently, Free Methodist World Missions has received word from the FM church in these countries that an offering for Haiti has or will be taken:
Hong Kong

Praise the Lord for this response! Pray giving will continue in order to support long-term recovery efforts.

I was intrigued by a TV report showing Mexican disaster relief teams preparing to show Haiti what they have prepared to do since their own earthquakes. Sometimes all we hear of Mexico is about the kidnapping, drug murders, illegal aliens. They appeared well-equipped and very professional.
