Day 8 of #first13of2013Haiti

There are a few of types of food that are highly known within Haiti.  One of those foods is rice, as is within many third world countries.  Anyone who has been to Haiti has more than likely eaten Haitian rice and beans.  Rice is one of the main foods that #first13of2013Haiti funds will go towards purchasing for each orphanage.

50lbs of rice in Haiti costs approximately $25-$27 through the source from which we will purchase.  It is estimated that one of these bags of rice has the potential to last 10-15 days, if proportioned correctly, within one of the orphanages #first13of2013Haiti is striving to help.

Want to buy some rice???  

If not, totally cool, but we do plead for your prayers for these children!  Both physically and spiritually.  Thanks in advance!  Giving options provided below.  To Christ be the Glory.

"Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty." 
 John 6:35
