a time to raise the dead?

this afternoon I was listening to a BBC report of what was happening in Haiti - I am sure than in a matter of days, when an army of international aid and medical personnel arrive in the country that things will be transformed quite quickly. however, today people are dying and bodies are lying everywhere. many treatable injuries are not being treated, people are going into shock and dying from things like broken bones and lacerations.

I am reminded of the command of Jesus in Matthew 10 - "raise the dead"! Not a common sermon topic, but IF EVER there was time for God's people (both within Haiti, and those who can get there) to obey a Scripture, it seems like the time is now!
