Well, the Haiti trip is now less than a month away and we are gearing up for whatever God has in store for us! The elections in Haiti have caused civil unrest and they will be announcing the results in mid January. The last time they announced results of the preliminary elections in December, American Airlines literally halted all flights into Port au Prince due to the unrest. We are confident that God will settle this unrest down before we are scheduled to go down there so we can carry out His plan for us in Haiti. Each and every member of this team has received a clear calling to serve in Haiti. We are praying and ask each of you to pray with us for Haiti to remain calm and for our trip to go on as planned. Touch Global has indicated that if the unrest continues that they will be sending us somewhere else….The Dominican Republic, Peru, New Orleans have been mentioned. Our hearts are open to go where God sends us but again, we all feel as if God called us to Haiti and He will clear the path for us to go as planned.
As we approach our departure date of February 4 we have already begun to feel the attacks of the enemy on our minds and bodies. We already have a team member struggling with staying healthy and home repair issues that have cropped up over the last week. Two members are dealing with fears and feelings of inadequacy. We are all praying for more time with God and accountability to stay the course with God’s plan for us to grow and learn more about Him. Please pray for the evil one to be bound and for us to recognize these attacks right away so we can pray and ask for prayer.
Pray for the details to come together as we prepare our families for our departure and start to get ready to leave the country. Pray for nothing to be forgotten.
Thank you so much to all of you who are praying with us. You are all on our team and we wouldn’t be able to do this without your support
