Oh what a day! We have had a restful and fun sabbath. Our experience at church was beautiful. Worshipping in another language is such a breathtaking experience that you can't fully describe to someone. Although we weren't able to understand what was being said, we could all feel the presence of the Lord among us in the church. We could see Him in the faces of our Haitian brothers and sisters. Watching them worship is so humbling... To see someone who has so little in the eyes of the world experience such joy and hope and abundance in the God who has created us all in His image. It was a pretty incredible service!
Afterwards, we had a meeting with the helpers and teachers for the VBS this week. Although I was nervous about the turnout, we had around 10-15 people come! They were all very interested in what we were going to do this week and are excited to work right alongside of us. We are so grateful for each of them!
The rest of the day was spent resting and hanging out with the girls in our home. We worked on English, helped around the house, braided hair, danced, and sang many songs!
It has been a really great day. We are excited to start the VBS tomorrow. We are waiting in anticipation of what the Lord is going to do through us for His Kingdom.
Here are some ways you can pray:
- for the VBS that starts in the morning
- pray it goes smoothly and that we get into a routine quickly
- for our teachers and church helpers to really dig in with us in teaching the children about being new creations in Christ
- for our relationships with our girls and translators to continue to develop
Again, thanks so much for your prayers. You truly are right beside us!
