WOW!!!!! We are so amazed how much the Haitian people love God. They loved sharing their stories and their love for Jesus. Haiti Arise works so hard in sharing the gospel and it shows in so many ways, the schools, church and community.
Today in Haiti it was a holiday, Labor Day, and both teams went to do more painting in the Children’s Village. The school is looking very beautiful. It was hot however, it didn’t stop people from working, getting things accomplished. We had a list of projects to do while we were here and tonight Wade (host) put a line through a good portion of the list.
The hospital visit was very hard due to seeing the malnourished babies, seeing a lonely 13-year girl that has no family to bring her food or supplies, this was really hard on the team. To this day I still think of each of them, and my heart breaks, however because we were able to sing, pray and help with cost of their testing and medication we are seeing God’s love shining through to them. Thank you all so very much for your prayers and generous donations that made this happen.
Another amazing event was the community walk where we were able to see families and offer testimony as well as prayer. One lady had wanted to pray for us and the power of the holy spirit was very evident as she prayed over us.
Sherry loves to visit at the school which is right outside the front door She sure loves those little munchkins as she calls them, they are so sweet and innocent and always smiling. She gets lots of hugs and holding hands.
I see the Haitian people as being so friendly and caring always a smile on their face so very evident in church where the power of the holy spirit fills the room.
As we wrap up today we are so thankful to spend time with our beautiful Haitian friends. We are learning to simplify our life by focusing on God and what he has done here and what he continues to do.
Please continue to pray as our trip is coming to an end but our love for Jesus grows.
