Bryan and I returned from Haiti a couple of weeks ago.
It was our second time there in three months.The building of our church, which is also our school, is complete. It looks amazing. All the village people from the youngest to the elderly had a fun
time putting their hand prints on the outside of the church in red, green and yellow paint! Hands to work and hearts to God ! What an answer to prayer. I remember when we were under the tarp down the hill having church and no where for the children to go to school. We looked up to the mountain and dreamed and prayed that God would open the door for us to build something safe, secure, and be that light on the mountain to all of Haiti and He did ! Now we are in the middle of clearing more of the mountain to make the school and church separate. we built the retaining wall and laid concrete so that when it rains, the mud wont keep washing things away and make a mess. We are praying for funds to come in so that we can get the school built. We are doing more and more medical things as well. We were blessed by Dianna and Peter who have such big hearts for Haiti.Its because of them that we were able to bring 18 people to the eye doctor. Fourteen of them received eye glasses. One is being treated for glaucoma, another cataracts, and multiple people were found to have high blood pressure and now are on medication. One persons pressure was 226/116. Thats truly a miracle of Gods timing because she was headed for a stroke. Most of theses people have never been to a doctor before in their life.
We went through the village and way up the mountain and gave out bags of food to 27 people/ families with enough food to last two to three weeks(thanks to Rickles from HSW). We fed the village everyday we were there. We gave out flashlights, batteries, soap, toothpaste and brushes, clothes, diapers, 226 T- Shirts, (donated by Smithtown Gospel Tabernacle), 148 cross necklaces, (donated by John and Fran Pangal), Plastic tubs filled with tylenol, neosporin, bandaids, tissues, deoderant, hand sanitizer,tic tacs, etc, (donated by Blake Topper). Dresses, childrens clothes, baby clothes, hair clips (donated by Mary,Mike Alcazars grandma and his mom). Many many baby items (donated by HSW Spanish club) as well as sneakers, shoes, and backpacks from HSW students and staff. Denise Winters supplied all the canvas bags that we put the food and the other goodies in to hand out. The list goes on and on. I can not thank you all enough for your prayers and donations of all sorts. You help to make it possible for us to do what we do.
Besides all the great things we were able to do for the people, this time they did something special for us. They wrote a letter on behalf of all of them to us. Every time I think of it I cry. It was beautiful. Their words more precious than gold. They also shared testimonies on how God has used us to change their lives. They once again touched our hearts. I love these people so much. They have nothing but they give all.
