Lovely morning here in Borel. I’m sure it’s a lovely and chilly morning where most of you are right now. Sorry for the delay in blogging. I guess you could say it was my “Christmas break”. I’ll be on a regular routine of blogging now and I’ll try to keep y’all up to date on what goes on here in Haiti. Well, for the most part. 😉
Our family has been in Haiti since Christmas day, about 3 weeks. We brought a team of 11 with us and they stayed until January 1st. Sharing pictures helps me remember everything we did, so I’ll share some pictures with captions.
P.S. I don’t remember the exact order of when we did everything, so the pictures are in random order.
We had the opportunity to visit Karen’s orphanage down the road in Dechappelle. It was our first time visiting the orphanage and it was such a fun time! We brought instruments and played some worship songs with the kids and we went for a walk down the canal.
It’s become an annual tradition of helping Guivens have a Christmas party for his Little Seeds of Faith group.
And of course, we can’t bring a team to Haiti without taking them to see the muffin man!
I know, it’s a lot of pictures. But, it helps you visualize things better. 😉
Anyways, it was a blessing to get to work with the people on our team this trip! It’s always amazing to see how God puts our teams together. We got to reunite with some friends from different home towns through this trip, so that was pretty awesome too.
My sister, Annie, and Alex all stayed for another week after our team left. We had lots of opportunities to visit with people in the community and to pray with them and pass out Bibles. It’s always great to get to know the community better and to form relationships with people.
This past week, we worked with the College First team from Findley, Ohio. They built benches for the school at Savon Tapion and visited their sister church at Charette. They were a great team to work with and I can’t wait to work with them again! (Si Bondye vle: if God wants) We said goodbye to this team yesterday at noon.
We appreciate all the prayers you are sending up for us! Keep ’em coming! We see God doing amazing things in the lives of our Haitian friends and in our own lives as well. To God be the glory!
“Oh, magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together.”
