Blogging tips

Wednesday, October 19, 2011


I received an email on Monday:

There is an orphanage in Haiti that is involved in human trafficking, organ harvesting, starvation and abuse of the children it houses. Children's Hope Chest is trying to get it shut down. They need signatures for a petition to CNN to expose the atrocities going on in the orphanage because they just learned that the government officials they were working with are part of the corruption. So far there are 40 children that are missing and 75 more that are at risk. Your blog is influential on the behalf of orphans. Please help CHC get the word out.

I spent some time praying over whether this was something God was having me advocate for, and whether or not it is legitimate. I have researched and researched, and I am disgusted to say that I believe this is true. Children in Haiti, like yours, like mine, are basically being stolen, they are being starved, are abused in horrific ways, and then on top of that their little organs are being harvested and sold for a profit. This world is disgusting. The name of the orphanage? "The Son of God Orphanage". If that doesn't make my blood boil....

We, as believers, can do something. We are told, in the Bible, to speak up for those who have no voice, to fight for the rights of widows and orphans - the poor, the needy. (Proverbs 31:8, Isaiah 1:17) I believe, because I am a follower of Jesus, if I know about this and choose to turn my head, than I am just as corrupt as those people working in that orphanage. The only choice I can make is to share what I have learned, do my part, and get on my knees on behalf of these precious children.

And there is something tangible that we can all do. There is a petition being signed that will be presented to CNN, in order to ask them to cover the story, so that this orphanage can be shut down. All I am asking is that you go here and read, and if you feel so led, please sign.

Then pray for these children, for their families, for the corrupt men and women involved - they need Jesus and His gospel - that is the only real solution. And if the Spirit lays it on your heart, please share this on your blog, on facebook, tweet it, tell your family and your friends. Tom Davis, author of Fields of the Fatherless, created this petition. He is looking for 10,000 signatures and has a little over 8,000 now.

A note from Children's HopeChest's Chief Operating Officer, Bob Mudd: "I have been intimately involved with the efforts to support this orphanage and while we do not approach our efforts in this manner typically, we are simply out of options. The claims in the note are well vetted and supported with evidence and is only the tip of the iceberg. If additional questions or if you have contacts in major media or government that can be helpful, call me on cell at 719-440-7917."

These children were created in the image of God. They are no different than my children, except they have no advocate.


Will you be their advocate?

Wouldn't you want at least that for your children?

Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows. Isaiah 1: 17b
