Haiti

I made it to Haiti and it is beautiful here, life is not easy but beautiful people and countryside!  We are staying in Open Door Church's compound.  It really is very nice and we have been so blessed by the people here.  We landed late morning and spent the day just getting to know the place and the people.  We got to take a walk outside the compound to see the orphanage they are building and along the way got to spend time with the sweetest kids ever!  Tomorrow we will have church and then begin prepping for the conference which starts Monday morning.  Our cargo with many things for the conference did not make it and may not till Monday well after the conference starts.  Please pray for a miracle here as part of that was blankets for the women who be staying here at the compound for the conference.  They will have nothing to sleep on but cement.  It is such an amazing opportunity to be a part of this conference as these women have never experienced anything like this where they are pampered, taught, given gifts and even get to make a trip to the beach which is unheard of.  Please pray that these women will experience the incredible love God has for them personally.

I am choosing to believe that wherever those glasses are, they are on the face of someone who would never in a million years be able to buy a pair of prescription sunglasses. That makes me feel better for you, at least. :)

Thinking of Micah this month...
