Haiti • Spring 2016 • Day One

  Today is Church day.  I love Church in Haiti, especially the singing.  I love how Haitians praise God with no reservation.  Dancing, hands raised, giving their whole heart to God in worship.  The sound of their voices is something I wish everyone could experience. It’s as if they say, “Here I am Lord you…

By God’s grace, we finished clinic strong in Williamson today!  We saw well over 35 patients, the medical team treated many illnesses, and the discipleship team shared the love of God with everyone who walked in the doors. Kim and I started our day with Peter (World Wide Village staff) and our good Haitian friend,…

Haiti • Spring 2016 • Day Two

Today was our first day of clinic in Luly. This day is always filled with excitement and a little bit of angst as the anticipation of engaging people with the Gospel leads to many different emotions.  For those of us that have been on multiple trips Monday mornings mean we get to connect back with…

Haiti • Spring 2015 • Day Seven

Yesterday was our final day of clinic in Williamson, as well as our final full day in Haiti. Most of us felt fatigued at the beginning of the day, as we have had a busy week of medical clinics. But prior to leaving for clinic this morning, we asked God that in our weakness, He…

Haiti • Spring 2015 • Day Five

After two days of clinic and outreach in Luly, we were off to Williamson this morning. We hiked up the mountain above Pastor Joassaint’s church to survey the land where the clinic and guesthouse will one day be built.  We stood on the hill surveying the 6+acre parcel as the coastal breeze and Haitian sun…

Haiti • Spring 2015 • Day Four

Today was another day chalk full of divine appointments!  In talking with other team members tonight, the overwhelming theme from today was that God allowed our team to be an encouragement to many of our Haitian brothers and sisters in Christ!  This was, in turn, SO encouraging to our team members, as well.  We continue…
