The time is fast approaching for our trip to Haiti and we have already seen God at work in our lives! If you read the previous post from Scott you know of how God has worked on him over the last months. We are seeing these kinds of changes in everyone. We are learning that we need to have confidence in God and to trust HIM that our prayers will be answered. We need to know that He will answer them, not just believe that He will if our hearts are well intentioned.
We were commissioned by our church this last Sunday along with the team from Honduras that leaves this Sunday. How blessed we are as a church body to have so many committed people to furthering the gospel around the world. Our pastor teased us that we didn’t have T-shirts like the Honduras team did. He said we hadn’t raised enough support yet, well as of Tuesday we are all fully funded with monies that are in and monies that have been committed to the team. We will be able to bless the field with a few things that they need down there because of the love and obedience of so many people. What a blessing it is to be a part of all of this and to witness God at work.
We have heard from Touch Global and as of right now we are going to Haiti! The unrest has settled down for the time being however it appears that there is another exiled former Haitian leader (along with Baby Doc who got there on Sunday) that is making his way back to Haiti. We have no idea what all this means to the people of Haiti but are trusting that God has a plan. Please read the following blog from Touch Global for more information on the last week in Haiti and the little bit of progress that has been made.
Please keep praying for Haiti to stay relatively peaceful. Pray for the next 2 weeks as the final details come together and we gather all of the things we need to bring down there. Pray for health for our team members and for the health of Wes and Mark on the ground in Port au Prince. Pray for a godly leader to immerge out of the rubble and to bring this country to a glory they have never seen before. This doesn’t mean that all of the material poverty would be wiped out however wouldn’t it be amazing to see True poverty (life without Christ) be greatly diminished in Haiti and to be able to truly show the Haitian’s the Glory of God at work in their lives.
Giving ALL the Glory to Him who reigns on high!
