Okay. It has been way too long since my last post. Yes, I have made a lot of trips to Haiti in this time. I still struggle with getting too much glory and adoration for my work. The glory belongs only to God.
One of the things I struggle with in working in Haiti is that I really don't have to tell Haitians about Jesus. For the most part they know Him much better than you or I do. One of the lessons Haiti has taught me is that true desperation breeds a dependence on God. As Americans, we will probably never know desperation like Haitians experience. Haitians know what it means to trust God for their daily bread.
Most Haitians I encounter have a deep belief and faith in God. A God they pray to constantly to rescue them from their hunger, illness, poverty, and other dire circumstances. What God calls me to do, is to be His healing hand, feet, purse, and heart to help answer a few Haitian's desperate prayers.
For me, the challenge is to continue to say "yes" to God's call to me serve these people for Him. Please pray that I have the strength to do this.
Grace and peace,
