When the disciples first witnessed the empty tomb, the angel told the disciples, “Behold , He is going before you to Galilee; there you will see Him.” This day has allowed us as a team to re-live this promise afresh. Jesus has surely gone before us here, and behold, we have seen Him and His work.
As many of you are aware the church in the Mole has experienced a great deal of turmoil, attack, and have been without a pastor for several months. But today, after a morning full of meetings and prayer, I had the privilege of meeting this afternoon with 7 of the church’s leaders, along with the new prospective pastor, and the leader of pastors in the Northwest zone. The people’s hearts could not have been more prepared. They claimed that they had been praying for months for God to provide them a new shepherd, but they also had witnessed a great strengthening in their own unity and perseverance.
They are glad to continue praying that God affirm His will to call Pastor Ajenor to the Mole Church. One leader even said that today Satan has experienced a great defeat, though he thought he had the victory. I could not agree more. Please pray that the message in the morning on “What is the Church” will instruct and encourage the people, and that our meetings on Monday and Tuesday afternoon will continue to unify the church in her direction and with her new leader. I will also be meeting with the NWHCM staff in the next several days to help encourage, heal, and move ahead.
On Thursday, I will travel to St. Louis to visit that campus and the Bible College. And despite my efforts to convince him I should take the bus back to PAP, Jose booked another terrifying flight for me on Tortuga air from Port-au-Paix 🙂
Randi, David, Parker, Abigail, and Ashton, I miss and love you all so much and can’t wait to see you again. PV family, thank you for your support of me on this critical mission for the Mole church.
PS – The construction guys have broken or wore out every generator they’ve touched, but before that, they strung up lights, did some welding on gates, and starting building some furniture. They are all doing great with building relationships with the Haitian builders. All of them who do not have their wives with them on the trip say that they miss their wives greatly. Tomorrow’s lesson for the construction guys will be “What is a blog” 🙂
