Today was a wonderful end to a pretty amazing week. We slept in, took our time getting ready this morning, and left for Petionville.
We went to Agape first. This is the new church plant that launched at the beginning of the year. This church is amazing! It is bigger than any of us expected. There is a massive worship center, two large children's church rooms, offices, several restrooms, a kitchen/coffee bar and multiple storage rooms. The building has a pretty legit sound system as well. Although the building is pretty remarkable, the vision of the ministry is even more. The church has been having leadership meetings and trainings for months to get lay people involved in multiple aspects. While they are still advertising and inviting people to come to church, they are getting actively involved in the community as well. The Lord is doing some great things!
After we were able to pray inside the church, we went and saw Jean Alix's import/export business. It was quite a sight! There were 3 delivery trucks outside bringing in 100lb bags of all kinds of goods (rice, flour, beans, etc). We got to learn a little more of what Jean Alix and Mylene do outside of the ministry and pray for there endeavors. Quite impressive!
We headed to lunch at La Ranchero and had a great time gawking at the Haitian socialites. After we finished eating, we headed to the Baptist Mission for souvenirs.
We then went to the boys home one last time. It was refreshing to just BE with the kids without an agenda. No working... Just hanging out. It was a great end to our ministry time here in Haiti.
Please pray for us as we return home tomorrow. It's going to be a long travel day. We will leave the house at 6 am Texas time and arrive home at midnight. Pray for safe travels and for our hearts as we leave.
We have so many stories to share! Take us out for coffee and we'd love to tell you more about our Spring Break! Thanks for joining us on this ride!
