I don't know exactly what kind of work we'll do, perhaps we'll dig latrine trenches, build shower stall frames, play with the children, sort donations, fix tents or anything else that needs help doing. Whatever is it, we'll do it with a servant's heart.
One thing I know with full confidence—after the covering of prayer I received this week— we will go with God. I don't know what He has in store, but I pray for ears to hear His voice, eyes to see His presence and a heart to love His people. I go not for my own glory, but for His.
I don't think I'll have access to a computer while I'm in Haiti so I'm going to hand over my blog to my husband (thanks Sue J. for the suggestion) to post updates, share witty turns of phrase and provide his own snarky commentary. If you've followed his comments on this blog you may understand why I do so with some fear and trepidation. I add this in advance: Disclaimer: The opinions expressed on this site are the author's personal views and do not necessarily reflect those of his employer (me) or its clients (you). :-)
Speaking of Haiti updates, I hope you all REALLY enjoyed the pictures I posted that Dan texted me from the relief sites because they I just got our cell phone bill and found out they cost a small fortune! Hence, I trust you'll understand why I'll share pictures AFTER I return home.
Will you please continue to pray for our team while we're away?
Also...check out the slide show from Haiti I posted in the right hand column. Even if you've seen it before, I added new pictures today, most taken by friends who have recently returned.. This show has been viewed by hundreds if not thousands of people and has put a real face to what's going on in one small corner of the Haitian tragedy. Feel free to share with others.
Bondye beni ou! Wè ou talè. (God bless you. See you soon.)
The winner of the Faith and Finances, A Journey to Financial Independence is YardleyDog. Congratulations! BTW...YardleyDog is a friend from here at home. I suspect he's in cahoots with my dog, Tess, who helped me select the winner. A formal investigation is underway. :-)
