Hi it’s Blake !
I’m blogging tonight with my mom. We are having fun today. We had church. It was a fun. Tim did a good job preaching.
After that we went back to camp and went to the beach with 10 orphans. They had so much fun. We did that for a while then came back to camp and talked to each other. When we were dropping off the orphans it was crazy. They were giving them rice but they were giving the orphans like 2 pounds of rice and beans and chicken and onion.
Last night we had a movie night for the kids in the mole. We played Madagascar and gave them popcorn and twizzlers. They were having a blast. They were jumping up and dancing to the movie and laughing like crazy.
This is Jennifer, The orphans are such wonderful children. God is amazing in how He has cared for them and the people. He has taken care of them. Being at the Mole has been an eye-opening experience. God is really working to show me how Jesus is enough in all things. The team has been doing well and what amazing people to spend the week with.
Blogging with Chris. It was an interesting day. My first experience at a Haitian church service. The language was foreign to my ears but the message was clear. God was being praised (and praised and praised). The singing was indeed a joyful noise unto the Lord. While we may be separated by language, we are united in our love for Christ.
I will note that I was really glad to hear Tim preach – we should appreciate him more now than ever. He has done a great job working with the leadership of the church here at The Mole.
After lunch, we hit the beach. 10 of the orphans were able to go with us. Markendy latched on to my hand and did not let go. He and I waded in the ocean and then he wanted me to sit down. He plopped down on my lap and we played in the sand and let the water wash over us. He was so content just sitting there and being held. It was indeed a blessing (to me).
On a side note I just wanted to let you all know that Tim did an AMAZING job today preaching about “What is the Church?” I could not have dreamed of a better day than what God had already prepared for us. Having the head of the mission pastors, our new pastor, & pastor Tim – it was the 3 Godly Amigos! You could truly feel a change in the spirit of the church. There was such joy – such peace – our hearts were rejoicing! ONLY GOD could have orchestrated this transition for our church & I really believe we are finally going to heal & move forward. We have 2 church meetings over the next 2 days. Please continue to pray for this process!- Jody
