Churches Will Target Haiti Relief February 6

Many of the 470 churches Haiti's Adventist members worship in are now in ruins.

A special offering for "Haiti Disaster Relief (SDA)" will be taken on Sabbath, February 6, throughout the North American Division. Instead of ADRA funds which must be used for general needs, this offering will go directly to help devastated Adventist churches and members in Haiti.

ADRA and other Adventist agencies are mobilized in and around Port-au-Prince. Adventist groups have traveled from the Northwest and beyond to help. Go to gleaneronline.org for updated information.

Healthy Heart Clarification

The January GLEANER article about Healthy Heart Teams from Portland-area churches doing health screenings in large chain stores led to a potential misunderstanding. In order to do these events, interested church groups must become part of the Healthy Heart Team. For more information, contact Molly Geddis, Healthy Heart director, at (503) 912-0254 or e-mail hunti@pacifier.com.
