"I think to really be able to enjoy missions you have to set aside your self and learn to comfortable being uncomfortable" - Wayne Zeh
Wayne made this very profound statement after he, Danny, and David spent the morning carrying buckets of concrete and buckets of rocks. It made us laugh, but is also so very true. Often God asks us to do things that move us outside of our comfort zone. Whether it is sharing our faith with a stranger, giving sacrificially, traveling to another country, or showing kindness in all circumstances. We must make the choice to obey even at the expense of our comfort.

The primary focus for the ministry here in Haiti is the launch of a new church start in Petionville. Petionville is a large suburb of Port-au-Prince, with a population of several hundred thousand. The launch team and leadership are in place and have begun holding special events for local children and evangelizing in the community. Many have professed faith in Jesu. Be in prayer for this new church start that will hold its first public service on January 5,2014.
Romans 8:31-35, 37-39 NASB
"What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? Who will bring a charge against God's elect? God is the one who justifies; who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us. Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
