(The Mowerys, Northwest Group, & Lelia have all made it safely to the Mole!)
Hello from the Mole- It’s Lelia Austin here. The love and power of God has been shown in ways my heart could not imagine. He is alive and here, even in the depth of sorrow; please continue to pray that we can decrease the depth of that sorrow here.
Yesterday was a day of travel for us so we spent the night in PAP at the Coconut Village. They fed us well and treated us so kindly. This morning we boarded two little planes and headed to Mole.
Most of our first day in Mole was spent organizing and prepping for the week ahead. The sweetest translators took us on a tour of the town, showing us a few churches and the police station. During our tour a little girl, maybe 2 years old, with the biggest smile chased us down to show us a wave hi and her beautiful smile.
I couldn’t get to the kiddos in the orphanage here fast enough. The time finally came to go have some fun and play with the kiddos, and my heart was screaming with joy!! We colored, threw frisbees and loved on them. And they have so much love to give back.
The Castillo family and the staff here have taken us in like their own. It’s a blessing to be here. The testimonies here are moving mountains!!!
Brian, Zach, and Chloe— I miss you all more than words can say. I can’t wait to share with you the beauty of our God and how he is working in Haiti. I love you all bunches!!
Blessings and Love,
