Bonswa! We have arrived! We woke early Friday morning to leave Miami for Haiti. In Port au Prince we rode a 6-seater prop plane to Mole St.Nicholas. The plane ride was a first experience for many of us. It was beautiful and many of us were lulled to sleep by the hum of the engine. We spent the day taking in the sights, sounds, and smells.
While on the prop plane, I heard what seem to be a voice saying, “I will with you always, to the ends of the earth.” (This is Matthew 28:20) God is with us! We are each here at this time for His purpose. I know this to be true! On a personal side, I learned upon my arrival to Haiti that my only grandmother has gone on to be with the Lord! This was hard news, but I will not let it hinder my purpose here. God will use it for His glory because His timing is perfect! To my family, please know that I am doing fine and have a peace that passes understanding. My heart will be with you as you celebrate my Gramma’s life! I wish I could be there to provide comfort, but you know that God’s comfort is more than I could ever offer. Luke 9:60 has been on my heart since Thursday. “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” Jesus has called me to Haiti and I will proudly go and proclaim His kingdom.
So, today, my rested team and I will go to a Woman’s conference and then to paint the church. Thank you for your prayers.
