Today also marks the end of October and this month of praying circles around the orphans at the Mole orphanage and praying for sponsors and the growth of fully funded family trees all throughout the ministries at Northwest Haiti Christian Mission. Although these month-long prayer circles and sponsorship drive are technically over, that does not mean that the prayer or sponsorship will stop. I’m asking that you will continue to pray circles around these sweet children I’ve highlighted this month and also that you will continue to pray for all the other residents at NWHCM (orphans, elderly, special needs). I’m still praying that they will be fully funded and that their family trees will be completely filled with sponsors. I pray that people will continue to pray circles around them and that they will love and encourage them, even from afar. I pray that God will continue to work in our hearts, that He will call us and many more to give in order to help further His kingdom – whether that would be resources, finances, time, energy, love, etc… And I pray that when we hear His calling that we will answer in obedience and faith, that we will step out of the boat onto the water, and we will follow. My prayer is that we answer God’s calling with “Here am I. Send me. Use me.” I’m continuing to pray for all the residents at NWHCM and their family trees and I’m praying that God will use these relationships to do some crazy, amazing things! One of my favorite verses is Jeremiah 17:7-8 and I feel like it’s really appropriate for this situation and it’s my prayer for all the residents at NWHCM and for all of the sponsors in their family tree. Here’s what it has to say:

Jeremiah 17:7-8 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

Please join me in continuing to circle NWHCM, their ministries, and all the mission staff and residents in prayer as we believe and wait for the miracles God is working right around us. Also, be prayerfully considering joining a family tree if you have yet to do so. I truly believe that God can and will work in crazy ways through these families and the relationships they are building.
