How much money did you send? Or what aid did you provide? What agencies did you use?

I don't think that the good Samaritan was concerned whether or not It was God's doing that man was left dying on the side of the road. Luke 10:33-36

Finally, a compassionate and (IMHO) God-filled response!

The important question: Who is doing the will of God? The person contributing to 20+ pages of posts debating "the will of God" or the person researching how they may help/send aid? Better yet, the volunteer on a plane to Japan right now to try to help?

The REALLY important question: What are YOU doing to help?
