Earlier today officials in Haiti announced the death toll to be more than 230,000 people–a number which is expected to rise in the weeks ahead.

The incredible number of shattered families have led many to look for ways to reach out to the growing numbers of orphans in that country. I recently spoke with Doug Phillips, President of Vision Forum Ministries, who with a small team traveled to Haiti to participate in rescue efforts at a number of orphanages destroyed in the quake.

If you liked to watch Doug’s reports from the field, they are available through his Vimeo channel.

For many of us, as we try to speak to our neighbors or unbelieving family members about creation and arguments against evolution, we may feel inadequate to deal with the topic. I recently caught up with Dr. Randy Guliuzza, National Spokesperson of the Institute for Creation Research, who encourages us as believers to initiate these conversations, regardless of our scientific training. This feature offers some helpful suggestions for doing just that.
