It has been a crazy week after Haiti. Lots to talk about, lots to think about, lots to do. School started, FUEL weekend, Falynn and Evan are back at school, our dogs are a mess, worked a bunch this week, Joe’s birthday is Monday, Joe comes HOME next Friday…
*cue all my excuses for not writing about Haiti yet*
Writing will happen. I just have to get to Sunday and I’ll start posting all the amazing things going on in Haiti. There was just so much to learn in a week. I’m sure there will be multiple posts. For now I’ll leave with some photos.
Haiti is beautiful.
Oh my. EIGHT days until Haiti!?
At the beginning of the summer when we decided to go it seemed so far away. Eight days from now me and five of my closest friends will be pouring our hearts into Haitian people. I. Can. Not. Wait!
I am asking for one thing though. In this week leading up to my friends and I leaving, please pray.
Pray God’s will to be done, no matter what.
Pray for our leaders who live and work in Haiti. They are: Pastor Gaetan, Pastor Jean Alix and Pastor St-Cyr.
Pray for God’s protection & presence to surround, lead and guide us.
Pray for courage. We will see suffering and pain, we will also see joy and hope.
Also, pray for our hearts as we come back to America. There is no way to be prepared for what we will see but I think it will be even harder to come back to America and go back to school and go back to the consumerism life we can’t really escape from here in America.
Watch this video from the organization we are going with, HELP, to see why we are bringing hope to these orphans, widows and the local Haitian church.
