Haiti Day One (February 2015)

Three a.m. alarm …
At four a.m. we leave the church to drive to the airport.IMG_6416_2
Finally at 10:30 p.m. we have arrived and we turn lights out …
What a day!!

I see faces today that are beautifully tanned;
Little ones walking down busy streets alone,
Many carrying water jugs,
Gathering impure water for their families!

We’ve been told over and over
How the world needs clean water.
I’ve seen the pictures
But today I see them…Really see them!

Why, Lord? My family has never gone without clean water.IMG_6424_2
I am blessed to live in a country with sanitation and infrastructure.
I am blessed to be a blessing.
How Lord? How do I do it? How do I become that Blessing?

Lord Jesus, tomorrow we will lovingly share your Gospel.
Please Bless Your Word and activate Your Spirit
To transfer lives from death into life, and to
Allow the people to be reborn into Your eternal kingdom.

Lord Jesus, will you allow the people to NOT just receive medical care; but
Allow these people to be introduced to YOU!
Don’t let the people see a temporary fix for their pain;
Instead, allow the people to receive an ETERNAL destination.

Thank You, Jesus, for the opportunity. Use us. Use me. Unify us in Your Spirit. Amen!
