Hello to you all in the states!
We have finished our first full day of working! This morning, we painted inside the house being built for the missionaries. We prayed and sang praises over their house, and wrote Bible verses and positive messages on the cement floor (which will be tiled over).
In the afternoon, we had our first VBS. We fed them lunch, and then Mop (my puppet) came out and entertained everyone. Matt shared the first part of the story of Joseph, and Phil tied the story to the children’s lives. We had a craft, a game, and had fun! Most of the kids were repeats from last year. It was so cool to see them again!
Joel, I am sorry I did not get to wish you a Happy Father’s Day yesterday. I love you and miss you! I am praying for your elbow and that you are not too bored. Kids, I love you, and you better be behaving! Older kids, I love you too, and I’m praying for each of you.
Greetings friends and family in Christ!
We had a blast painting Jodi and Jose’s new home this morning, as we sang songs of praise to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! The first day of VBS went well, The children were extremely blessed and receptive. Quite a few were apart of VBS last year so we know they were impacted by the Word of God, crafts, and games. God is truly amazing and using us all for
I miss praise and worship and the sermons at Crossroads Calvary Chapel and all my church family. I love and miss you all very much. I miss my two wonderful sons Maurice and Kyle very very much.
Hello: Eunice and fellow brothers and sisters,
Haiti: what a experience beautiful chocolate thin kids with big smiles. They give a new meaning to Klingon once you show them some affection. They teach us all how to love a stranger. They are strong willed respectful, powerful worshipers, only to go home to what we wouldn’t call home. But God has a plan for these beautiful children, and I am blessed be yound words to be a part of the plan. May god Bless you for you prayers.
Love Philemon: the one Jesus Loves
It has been another great day in the Mole. Started morning out working on the house. Then we had our first day of VBS. A lot of the kids where the same ones as last year. This is great, to keep preaching Jesus on them continually will hopefully change their life. It was tough turning some away. We just have to pray the Lord blesses those ones in another way. I love you Jamie. U and Lil Man are always on my mind. I am a lucky man to have the family I do and to be able to grow it. Thanks for the prayers from everyone and keep praying that we exert our all into this trip to change lives. Phil was saying that if these kids aren’t somewhere better 10 years from now it would feel like failure. I couldn’t agree more. I hope everyone sees the light of Jesus that we talk to. Love you bunches Sugar and give Ethan extra hugs and kisses for me. Muah. JD
