Last night our church held a benefit concert & silent auction to raise money for the earthquake victims in Haiti. It was a stirring, amazing evening with four groups sharing from their hearts and performing some great music. My husband's worship band, "The Four D's" opened the evening, and then helped close it out with the other musicians with the song "A New Hallelujah", including a special verse written as a prayer for the people of Haiti. Over $4000 was raised, with 100% of it going directly to a mission project that has been working with the people of Haiti for several years.
There were several pieces of art done by Haitian artists, and I was the highest bidder on this one, done by someone named Jean Louis. I think it's absolutely beautiful.
