The men’s team arrived safely in the Mole! Two of them arrived around 9am and the other two arrived around 2:30pm. They did not get a chance to blog … because it’s been a super busy day.
BUT – do not fear! I have their #ProofOfLife photo so all their friends and family know they really are doing great! LOL!
They are in great spirits – we are SUPER excited to serve alongside them this week!
From the Nursing Team… Megan, Julie, & Kelly
This trip has brought the unexpected, to say the least. After long travel days and a sketchy flight, we finally arrived to Mole St. Nicolas. We set our stuff down in our room and immediately started seeing patients in the clinic. We saw several pregnant patients, but due to excessive rain not many women ventured out. We then proceeded to go out into the surrounding communities and do home visits. All of our plans have been thrown out and everything is just up in the air.
We planned to stay in Mole St. Nicholas until Tuesday and then travel to St. Louis. As of now, we are not sure where we will be or what we are going to end up doing because the roads seem to be impassable right now.
The unexpected has pushed us to really rely on God. We have to trust that God has a plan for us and that He will use us wherever we are and whatever we are doing. Although challenging, it has really pushed our faith to grow. A devotion that we read talked about how worship, working, and waiting all go together. We have definitely been able to see this during our trip. We are in the unknown as we are waiting to see what will happen and what we will be doing. Regardless, it is vital that we continue to worship and work in this process. We cannot let the unknown and the constant change of plans discourage us or hinder our time here in Haiti.
Ephesians 6:14-16 says “Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.” We need to be ready and willing for whatever God presents us with. In faith and with the armor of God, we are empowered and Satan will not overcome us.
We can’t wait to see all that God has in store for us and are so thankful for this opportunity to be here in Haiti and serve these people.
FYI…Today Kelly led a Labor & Delivery Seminar at 11am for lay people – and another one for our medical professionals at 1pm. It was an incredible time of learning for all of us. The medical professionals were able to earn a certificate for this training which is a big deal here.
We are so thankful for their willing spirit. It has rained non-stop since they arrived but it hasn’t kept them from serving – from being the Hands, Feet, & Face of Christ!
