We had such a busy day today! We spent the morning working on the Dark to Light ministry. The goal is to teach the younger generation of Haitians about their bodies and how God made them each so special. It was really good to play games and sing songs with them that can also be such an important lesson. The young girls we talked with were so sweet and I’m hoping they really took away what we tried to teach. During the afternoon we worked on Children’s VBS here in the Mole. The kids learned about heaven and they were all very excited! It’s so fun to see how God is working through us to spread his love to them. The late afternoon was spent with the orphans at the beach! I was so encouraged by their joy. Our wonderful team has been so uplifting to me so I’m really sad we only have three more days together. My prayers for the last few days are for physical and emotional strength for us and for everyone here! Thank you for your amazing and supportive comments, I love to hear them and I know everyone else does too!
This has been such an amazing trip not just for the work we are doing in this wonderful country but this team is amazing. There are always opportunities for challenges to create themselves with fourteen different minds headed in the same direction. The real blessing is that God has been at work all week long. Yes, it is hot; yes, we get tired; yes, we are dirty and dusty by the end of the day but what a blessing by the end of the day as you think back and recall the amazing smiles we experienced, the resilient people of this country. They are true survivors.
I know many are asking have I spent time with Christina. Every chance I get and that is daily. Yesterday, she broke my heart due to the fact that every time I saw her she would turn the other way. Today was different. I visited her following afternoon nap as we were taking orphans to the beach to swim. I ask the “momma” if I could take Christina and she said no. Christina would not let go of my hand as she stood in her crib…………and of course as I left that created tears. Upon return we had a great time together with both Christina and Roselandy on my lap in the rocking chair. What a sweet heart they both are……….just hard to believe someone would give them up to life as orphans.
God has done amazing things here this week in the hearts of this team and I am so thankful for each and everyone of them in so many ways.
Tomorrow, we are off to Carnage by foot to minister to the people of this fishing village……..”God is the Light of the World”
Thank you for your prayers
