Haiti Mission Trip January 2020
Hi everyone. I am writing this today for a number of reasons. I want to share with you about the last mission trip to Haiti because it was beyond anything I have ever experienced. This time I am doing it through the pictures. God was so present ! But first I want to bring you encouragement. I first visited Haiti 11 years ago. It was prior to the earthquake. I had no idea what was in store for me when I went there, nor did I ever dream that I would fall in love with these precious people the way I did. Loving them was easy. I wanted to bring them all home. The part that was hard for me was how was I going to make a difference in their lives. Who am I that I dare to think I have something to offer them . I had no idea how to do this. No idea how to start. I'm nobody special, just a mom, a grandma, a nurse, an ordinary person. I could not sleep or stop thinking about them. So I did the only thing I knew to do and that was to pray. And Jesus opened the door. He sent me there. Over and over. All the while I would keep asking Him what it was that He would have me to do. The same thing kept coming to me. He kept saying, " Just love my people". But you see, to me that happened the moment I met them. That was so easy. I kept asking and asking and it was always the same, just love my people. I kept thinking I had to do more than just love His people. In the beginning I was so uncertain on what to do or how to do it. But it was like blind faith. It was a passion He put in my heart and I realized I just had to take a step of faith. As I did that, and believe me, I had no idea what I was doing, it was like He took my hand and led me every step of the way. I never preached before, never prayed for a large group of people. It was totally out of my comfort zone. I saw things in Haiti and experienced things that I never knew of or heard of. Spiritual things. But God was right beside me. He taught me to get out of the way. He taught me to allow Him to take over and let the Holy Spirit move. And oh how He has. I have had the privilege of Him working through me (cause I could never do this of my own accord) to preach on the streets, in churches, baptize, dedicate, pray for multitudes, cast out demons, see people set free, officiate weddings, funerals, and miracle upon miracles take place. He filled my mouth with His words. I did not know what I was saying most of the time but I could see by the peoples faces that Jesus was touching them. They were being changed. They felt Him. In all these years, God has provided everything He has needed to accomplish that which He wanted. It was not me. He has sent angels to pray for His mission and angels who give. He has given the people in that mountain a beautiful church that is so on fire for Jesus, a school where children come and feel special and most of all, He has filled them all with His love. He has taught me that love truly is everything. Love, His love, breaks every barrier, every chain . Love conquers all. And there is NOTHING we cannot do through His love. If He could use me, the least of these, the least likely, He can and will use you if you take a step of blind faith. He will lead you by the hand and take you places you never knew He would. And oh what a blessing it is to be used by Him. God bless you all.
