Prayer of Thankfulness and Preparation

Soverign Lord, I praise you for your supremacy. All authority is yours. You are the rightful ruler of all. Thank you for prompting your church to help the poor and needy in so many ways. Thank you for those who have offered encouragement in the form of words, prayers, gifts, and service during this time of preparation. I pray that this tool might be a source of blessing for those whose heart is broken for our brothers and sisters in Haiti. According to your word, I pray for the Hatian people: answer them in their distress; protect them with your name; send help; grant support; help them rise up and stand firm; fill them with joy and peace as they trust in you; help them overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit; fill them with the knowledge of your will through all wisdom and understanding, endurance and patience. May your cause prosper among the nations so that in everything you might be glorified in Christ Jesus. Amen.

First Evening in Haiti

We are eating crackers and tuna for dinner. And granola called blueberry cobbler for dessert. We will sleep on the porch tonight since there is another group here until tomorrow. We will set up a clinic tomorrow in Chambrun. The pastor will meet with us in a few minutes to tell us what to expect tomorrow.

Our bus driver in Haiti was amazing. Steve would be impressed. He was able to nagivate in very small places. We followed a truck with UN troops and rifles on the way to the pastor's house. Kind of scary. The roads are in very bad shape!

Many men were at the airport wanting to help and wanting to be paid. We have been told not to give anyone money. The pastor pays one man and he pays his helpers.

I miss everyone!
