It has been a busy few days. Over the weekend the team spent time to talk and pray with some micro-loan families who sell everything from used clothing to gasoline.
VBS has been a huge success seeing about 100 kids at the site in Koledar in the morning and about 200 kids in Haute Savanette in the afternoon. Were able to feed to group yesterday of 199.
Last night the team went to Pastor Jephthe’s church and saw choirs from local youth groups sing. The power kept going out throughout the event, but the kids never stopped singing praises to God – it was beautiful.
Days are spent with devotions as a team in the morning and then serving throughout the day. Music and fellowship in the evening.
Prayers are needed for tomorrow as they finish up the vacation bible school programming, safe travels home and rest for the team as they debrief and see what God has in store for them.
God has already been actively at work! Here is the latest update from Team Haiti:
Immanuel Church recently sent a team to Haiti to spread God’s love and share his word. God has something special planned for each and every one of them. And here, is how their journey began!
“It was a chilly 50 degree morning at 4:00 am in the Immanuel parking lot when we said “Godspeed” to the Haiti team. Even though it was cold, you could feel the warmth from the excitement and love everyone shared that early morning. It was so amazing to see about 10 additional friends, family and “Immanuelites” there on that dark and cold morning wanting to pray, hug, and just show their support for this amazing team! We packed the four vehicles, gathered around in a circle and prayed for the journey ahead. Then after a few last moment goodbyes, off they went in a four vehicle caravan to O’Hare airport.
If you’re reading this update, that tells me that you care, and that you are interested in how the team progress on their mission trip in Haiti. Please take time through the end of this month to pause during your day and pray for the team. Pray for their safety and health, and that God will use them in a mighty way. Pray that they will be changed by what they see and do while serving in Haiti.”
