Merry Christmas...a little late!

Merry Christmas from Haiti. It has been a while since we updated the blog because of internet problems and other issues. We wanted to tell everyone hello. We had a team from another ministry take us to the beach for Christmas and the we had a great time. Things have been unbelievably busy to end the year and beginning of 2010. Joy helping to prepare food for a feeding we did at a local area near the bakery where we live. We have been ministering to the young people that live there and felt led to have a Christmas party with them and share the gospel. It was a good time. The folks we fed are not the most upstanding citizens in the community and many of the people from the churches do not try to reach them. They are the ones that we believe Jesus would try to reach if he were here.

Philip has been a HUGE help to us here. He has made so many friends and has had the opportunity to share his faith with many young people one on one. We are trusting God to use him to really impact the youth of our area. The Wednesday night worship service that we are doing outside in the yard here has become one of his main ministries and we are really excited about how God is using it.

I have had several opportunities to preach lately with Pastor Cesar. I am not quite ready to preach without a translator but I think after a couple of more months I will be comfortable doing so.

We have several teams headed our way and we can't wait. We will keep you updated on how things are going. We should be opening two eye clinics this month and the lab to make the glasses.

Please know that Prayers are going up as we see the devastation unfold there. Our God we serve does not make mistakes.I pray that through this broken, shattered time that Our God we serve humbles hearts across the U.S. and the world everwhere to open the eyes of people so reach out to help those in need there. Thank-you for serving Our God. You and everyone there are ever so close to my broken heart as I lift it up in prayer.

I just wanted to let you all know that we are praying for you. The people of East Hickory Baptist will be having a special prayer time tonight for you, your family and the people of Haiti. We all hope that you are OK and that God is keeping you safe. Please let us know as soon as you are able. Hopefully this will be a time that God will move in miraculous ways in Haiti and allow you to be used in a fresh and powerful way.
