DAY 5 – FISHER OF MEN
Today has been packed with continuous serving! Starting off bright and early with the men working on construction while Tom and the rest of the ladies helped Jody with clinic. Traveling over to a fishing village and coming back to the Mole with hope for Haiti really wrapped the whole day up.
This morning, clinic had already filled up before it even opened. We were really proud of Jody and the ministry to allow the sick to be seen and sent off with medicine for their illness, all at no charge!
Ms. Diana, oh the Puerto Rican firecracker, she really lit up the waiting room today with her mad skills at dancing the samba to Haitian music. She basically had everyone get up and dance, so that for one moment they would forget why they were sitting in the waiting room of a clinic. Also, both her and Del shared a sweet message of the gospel, while Micah and Robbie colored with the kids. It was truly beautiful to witness.
Back at the orphanage, the men had broken up a sweat at attempting to put together a gazebo, after realizing that it was done wrong and some parts had arrived broken!
Although, they did accomplish putting together a crib and a changing table for sweet Fabi. Today was also special because Wilderson had turned 5 in November and had a belated birthday celebration going for him! John wanted to be apart of that special day J
Straight after all of that, the groups got together and rushed through lunch to get to the boat so that we could head over for a short 15min ride to the fishing village for hut to hut. The boat ride was just phenomenal! The oceans had many shades of blue and for one split second you kind of – sort of feel like Peter J
When arriving there, we felt quite comfortable and welcomed. The team immediately began to go to the homes and speak to them. Eventually, we all ended up at one hut and God just took over. Many family and friends gathered around.
The Lord had used Del and to engage with the people, used Douglas to preach and Tom to close with prayer. While the rest of the crew played with the children, a man had stuck out with his many questions on reviving his faith and that was IT!
All of a sudden we realized why we came. We also heard a woman’s testimony of her faith and prayed over a baby for healing and good test results. How great that the good news is spreading!
We all greatly miss out families and friends and love your reposts to the blogs. YOU ALL ARE AWESOME! Thank you for your huge support and comfort.
3 more days! 🙂
