Relief-Aid Organizations

In case you haven't noticed, the LORD has impressed a lot of things on me of late concerning Christians reaching out to the world's impoverished and needy peoples. I heard a report from a IMB missionary last night concerning the earthquake in South Asia last October; in six seconds, tens of thousands of people, predominantly Moslem, were killed. The other figures(and of course the images) that he shared were just unbelievable. Well, I've been trying to respond, adding a lot of links and such to the website for reputable charitable organizations, and I finally decided to just give them their own section underneath the regular links. If anyone could give me some tips as to how to get the "Relief-Aid Organizations" section(heck, and everything below it) in proper alignment beneath "links", that'd be great!
So check out the links, and do consider how our God would have you get involved in the lives of those who are so desperately in need.

Compassion International

I just wanted to point out that a couple of links to Compassion International's website have been added here. Compassion is one of the most worthwhile ministries I've ever encountered, focusing heavily on child sponsorships where our money goes to provide food, medical attention, and education to children in less fortunate countries, not to mention that these kids are introduced to Christ, maybe for the first time. Compassion was also listed recently by the Wall Street Journal among the top ten most trustworthy non-profit organizations in the world. Pretty high praise. Check out Compassion.com for yourself for more info on them.

The LORD upholds all who fall,
And raises up all who are bowed down.
The eyes ofa all look expectantly to You,
And You give them their food in due season.
You open Your hand
And satisfy the desire of every living thing.
Psalm 145:14-16

This is another good chance for Christians to, as Audio Adrenaline would say, be His hands.

And if anyone starts to wonder, this is going to likely be my last post for a while, as I'm at the start of an internet fast right now. I only posted this time because I found out that you could link to Compassion on your site, and I wanted to be sure to point it out to everybody.

Again, Compassion International.
