This is Christian Aid Week

Yesterday the three congregations in Murrayfield Churches Together joined together for a joint service of worship to launch this year's Christian Aid Week. The focus of the campaign this year is on Haiti and the support Christian Aid is giving to local people who have been devastated by the previous hurricane seasons and who are now preparing to face this year's onslaught. It was moving to hear the story of one woman and her seven children who were made homeless two years ago and who last year sheltered 54 neighbours in their storm proof house built by Christian Aid. That house not only sheltered those 54 people it basically saved their lives too. This year when the red envelope lands on your door mat please think of those who live in the difficult places of our world and the work that Christian Aid does with local partners to ease the burdens these people face on a daily basis. Thank you
