But here’s the one thing I have learned in Haiti – everything is in His time! Sometimes He is ready before we are… and sometimes we are ready before He is! So we are not discouraged….
Tomorrow morning at sunrise I, along with two other team members, will be getting baptized in the ocean that God created! This is the place where I fell head over heels for the Lord two years ago. He showed me his everlasting love, pure joy, and stillness here. He used Haiti to begin softening and molding my heart into His heart.
Soooooooo many people showed up despite the rain, which was refreshing and encouraging. We began with a VBS for everyone,
I pray that my eyes would be open to him, to see his movement, to be doing as he does and to stand bold in a world that breathes rebellion against him, and there being a need for people to live as if heaven should come more and more to us each day. I love that even in construction today was completely about the loving union of God with us.
These Haitian people have so much joy it radiates off of them and it warms my heart to see how much more I have than they do, but how much more pure joy they have than I do. I am in awe of how God has shown himself so far this week, and I can’t wait to see what He continues to do. He is wrecking my heart and transforming it…
The smile and laughter of these kids is simply contagious and instantly fills your heart. I have experienced God through each of these kids because they way they are so on fire for the Lord makes me want to be that much more on fire.
