Hey hey! Kate here. Sak pase? This week has been amazing. There are a lot of goats and donkeys and chickens. The Lord has been beyond incredible. I am learning so much from the Lord. It has been so cool to be a part of the change that is happening within the group. Today we did a lot of construction and it was really hard but everyone was putting his or her hearts into it. Not just construction, but also everything we have been doing over the past week. I have been taking a lot of pictures. I ATE THE MOST INCREDIBLE MANGO TODAY!!!! (eye pull) Thursday when we went to Kapafu, Taylor opened up the floor for the Haitians who had prayer requests to come and receive prayer. When I stepped up a woman came to me and wrapped her arms around me. In that moment I felt the incredible embrace of the Lords arms wrapped around me. It was unexplainable the feeling I felt (touches shoulders and grabs eyes). There were definitely tears, but I was looking out at the ocean when I was just absolutely overwhelmed by the Lord’s presence. I was standing by a shack looking at the beauty of the place I was in and the people that were there and in that the Lord affirmed my call to missions. There were goose bumps and the chills and I was just completely taken up in the arms of the Lord. In that moment, there’s no other way for me to tell you except that there was no doubt in my mind that my Father was holding me, affirming me, calling me, and loving me. I am fully hydrated and in good health as is everyone else. I’ve learned lots of phrases in Creole, which I’m sure you’ll have to listen to at some point once I get home!
Shout out to Dylan! Thanks so much for leaving comments each night. Haha I had this shoutout to you written before we read your comment on the blog. Thanks for sending swag. Your words are so encouraging for the team. And you’re right, Jody had talked about that in Haiti, there are no coincidences….There is a guy that we have seen 3 times who speaks English and has deep questions about scripture. It’s really cool that the Father is letting us be vehicles to teach him and so many other people.
You would be proud of the team, they are working so diligently and giving all the glory to God.
An Update for people who have been to the Mole before…..
Kenson and Santanya are translating for us again, they are doing well. Morgan and and the Castillos are also doing well. They have been wonderful to work alongside of. The twins are so grown up! Miss Beth is full of wisdom, just like she always is. The orphans are bundles of joy, and the NWHCM campus has grown so much.
Thanks for prayers for our team and for the Haitians, God is overflowing with love and joy and mercy. He is very much at work here in this beautiful town.
