Thank you doesn't seem to convey the feeling in my heart for so many friends and family and people we do not even know giving so generously to our Haitian Church family. Noel and I are making a quick trip to Haiti to give them the GOOD NEWS. I know they will be giving the GLORY to God for His provision and thanking Him for YOU this weekend as they celebrate the 7 year anniversary of the church and worship our GREAT GOD! I will bring back a message from Pastor Andre and lots of photos! I have a feeling he will say something like this -- "I knew God could do it." That has been the attitude of his heart since we started seeking this financial provision - "My BIG God can do this."
My prayer is to have faith like that - in the midst of very difficult living situations, floods, cholera, still digging out from the earthquake - he BELIEVES!
So much to share with you all! FIRST - you may have heard that there have been 7 days of hard rains in Port au Prince - at least 25 people have died and there is massive flooding. Pastor Andre emailed today and said many members of his congregation are staying at the church with their homes collapsed and washed away. He has asked us to continue to pray for them.
Praising God that we continue to bring in funds for the land project and we have a benefactor that has given enough for the church building if we are able to raise the money for the land! Praising God for the provision of 2 teams of builders and other mission minded people that will serve our partner church family in July. Please pray with us -
1. That the goal of $30,000 for the land would be met by Father's Day.
2. That Pastor Andre would be able to move forward quickly to purchase the land.
3. The teams would be able to use their specific skills in July to start construction of the church building.
WOW - it is incredible watching God work all of this out for our Haitian family! He is moving fast - we are holding on and love watching His Plans unfold.
May God be everything you need today,
