In the post-storm hours of last Sunday morning, a convoy of ten 40-foot tractor-trailers and two auxiliary trucks pulled out of the Food For The Poor-Haiti compound in Port-au-Prince at 6:30 a.m. Members of the U.S. team were watching and praying, knowing the team in Haiti was facing a dangerous but necessary mission to resupply the centers. For weeks, Haiti has been beset by a humanitarian crisis fueled by civil unrest, gang violence and a spike in COVID-19 infections, and as of early this morning, the president of Haiti, Jovenel Moïse, had been assassinated. President/CEO of Food for the Poor, Ed Raine will join Mornings with Eric and Brigitte Thursday to give an update on their relief efforts in the crisis in Haiti as they continue to provide food to those in need.
Parents are busy and often feel tired and overwhelmed from all they're doing while simultaneously feeling guilty for not doing enough. Investing in our kids is one of the most important God-ordained tasks of our lives, so we know we need to do so with intentionality. Thursday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, VP of Parenting and Youth at Focus on the Family, Danny Huerta joins us to talk about the "One Win a Day: Intentional Dad Challenge."
Join us in July for the Mornings with Eric and Brigitte Book Club! People like to say, "Prayer works." But what does that mean? Prayer works for what? Getting the answers from God that we want so much? While God certainly cares for your deepest needs, Skye Jethani wants you to know that prayer is so much more than a two-way transaction with a heavenly vending machine. As you read this book, this author wants to take you deeper into what Jesus, the lover of your soul, had to say about talking with God.
