Friday night, we attended a free concert to benefit the victims in Haiti. There were two bands: NewWorldSon, and our friends PEAVYHOUSE band.
The concert was awesome. Bell Shoals Baptist Church (Brandon, FL) has an amazing stage...perfect for concerts!

Perhaps the most disturbing thing I learned that night was what their diet mostly consisted of. What they call "Mud Cookies". And they're exactly what you think...
My heart broke. I remember being glued to the television watching the rescues, the times it was "too late", the triumphs and tears. I also remember the big names that rallied for concerts and said the loved Haiti. I don't hear anything much anymore. It's too easy to get back into our "comfortable" mode. When I heard that human beings were eating mud just to survive and try to ease the gnawing hunger pains and I just had my pot roast, peas and mashed potatoes I felt guilty.
Greg, his wife and others have been ministering there. There's no big TV coverage, no appeal-a-thon, he's putting feet to his faith. He has a website if you'd like to check it out Florda Synergy . He's also on twitter @LuvHaitiMission.
