So many feelings are going through me after seeing the devastations, hearing the stories and witness the life of people without homes and fear of another quake. It is overwhelming to think of the practical clean up and build up of a city, and way worse is the tragedies of lost family members and friends. Yet I see a hope. God has opened up people´s hearts to him like no other time, and the time for the Him to transform this nation is now.
The stories are many of tragedy, but also miraculous of angels tending to people stuck, God saving and giving people second chances. A girl I talked to knew that God saved her in the earthquake, and gave her life to Jesus with several others a night they attended church.
Would I encourage you to send MA teams here Absolutely. Would it be nice and organized? I doubt it. But I think we could do something together, where we who are advertising this outreach could send down one staff in advance and take on the whole thing so we don´t load down the full time staff here.
I believe that the time for Haiti is now, and the favor of God seem to be on it. As YWAM´ers we are always praying into seeing a wave of young people crashing onto the shores – and it seems like the wave is building for Haiti. I want to be a part of seeing this nation transformed!
Well, enough about that. I will leave details for someone that is administrative…. ha, ha.
It sure has been fun, though a lot of brain work for me. I was not thinking that I would be places in an administrative role at all. But I have learned to serve wherever I am put. Was I disappointed to be in an office and not on the streets? Yes, but looking back at it, I believe that was where I was to serve.
I remember back on days where my brain were hot, and I crying out to God telling him he was blind, cause we were clearly sinking in this ship. What I did not see till some tears and frustrations later was that he was totally relaxed and sleeping in the boat… This did not rock Him at all. I just needed to see that He was in control and that He would take care of it. Not in my strength and works.
What a lesson to learn. I love having those moments and then see that God works wonders throughout the day. I have heard that storm story many times, but this time it became reality.
Not sure what you are going through personally or with the MA ministry, but be encouraged. Nothing rattles God.
He is fine with us being angry, upset, frustrated and mad. And then let us take time to let Him give us his view.
Sure love you guys!
Blessings from Haiti
