  "You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you. Hear my prayer, O LORD; listen to my cry for mercy. In the day of my trouble I will call to you, for you will answer me."
Psalm 86:5-7 (NIV)

As we continue to watch the pain and suffering rise out of Haiti, I am reminded one way to offer support from afar is through prayer. I am also reminded by this passage that God answers prayers; He wants to see that we care deeply about others.

Beyond prayer, I'm sure you are aware of multiple ways to support the relief efforts financially. The Trinity community is trying to offer its support by hosting a Haitian Relief Benefit Concert on Friday, February 5, featuring the Haitian a cappella group Supremacy 4.
