Boyer Writes will be sharing with you some of the Rapid Responders to emergency situations like the one now happening in Haiti. This is for information that can be found at the individual websites, not an endorsement of all activities. Continue to look to trusted organizations and church affiliations for credible ways to donate and to help. As the emergency continues, we will add more information to this blog.
To those traveling to Haiti to bring supplies, medical help and spiritual support, our prayers and support are with you. From Bill and Nancy Boyer of Boyer Writes.
Look for updates.
