Cross to Light Emergency Relief
Cross to Light operates in two areas of the world that are extremely high risk; Haiti and Israel. These environments are volatile at times and periodically lends to emergencies that arise with those under our care; pastors, staff and volunteers.
Haiti is the United States poorest third world neighbor and is the poorest country in the Americas. The tiny island nation is often under extreme duress due to political and economic hardship. As a result food and fuel become scarce and expensive without warning. When this occurs most people living in Haiti find it very hard to get to work and to get food.
Cross to Light’s distribution network is unlike any other in Haiti. It consists of air and sea import to Port au Prince, truck transportation to its eleven church community centers located throughout the various provinces of Haiti. Each church community center is managed by a senior pastor and team who ensures supplies are distributed appropriately as they are local experts with heavy leadership involvement with the people living in the community to ensure supplies are given to those most in need.
The Haitian government has continued to give Cross to Light favor and has continued our good standing NGO status that allows us to bring this relief into the port.
The bible promises a special, conditional blessing to those that help the poor:
Blessed is he who considers the poor;
The Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.
The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive,
And he will be blessed on the earth;
You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies.
The Lord will strengthen him on his bed of illness;
You will sustain him on his sickbed.
Thank you for your support with this important aspect of our operation. It literally makes the difference between life and death.
