The Assemblies of God, North Central University’s denominational affiliation, has partnered with Convoy of Hope to assist in providing relief to the people and churches of Haiti affected by the recent disaster. For more information on how to participate through donations and prayer, please visit www.ag.org or www.convoyofhope.org.

Below is a message from General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God Dr. George O. Wood.

My heart is so heavy today with the disaster that struck the island nation of Haiti last evening. The Assemblies of God has 2 missionary families on the ground there. Reports are that they are safe. However, we have 273 churches with over 66,000 adherents and we do not know the fate of any of these. Most assuredly there is an unbelievable loss of life among the 3 million population here. The capital city, Port-Au-Prince for all purposes has been leveled. I am appealing to our churches and leaders to give sacrificially for relief efforts for Haiti. You can view a video I made this morning at www.ag.org appealing for prayer and for funds. I am especially appealing to our 12,400 churches to take an offering this Sunday for Haiti relief and send these funds to us so we can immediately respond with help. We partner with Convoy of Hope in these efforts and will be doing everything we can to assist. I have asked the AG Fellowship around the world to give and to pray for this nation which is among the poorest on earth.

Please pray that the proclamation of the gospel will be advanced during this time of suffering and that God will take this disaster and bring great good to the Haitian people and churches. We will provide updates as they are available but I am asking for your help today for relief funds. You can give online at www.ag.org and click the Haitian Relief button or by sending your donations to headquarters at 1445 N. Boonville Ave., Springfield, MO 65802 marked for Haiti relief. May God bless you and make you a blessing.
