Here We Go Again
It is hard to believe but we are only 2 weeks from returning to Ouanaminthe in the beautiful country of Haiti. We leave on the 30 June and return on the 18 July and we would really appreciate your prayers for our safe travel to and from Haiti. In particular we will be travelling through Port au Prince which will give us a great insight into the state of the country but involves a more difficult and challenging journey.
We have been amazed by the generosity of all those people who have supported financially and we really hope that you will undertake to pray for us when we are away.
This year the team will be aiming to build on the relationships that we made last year and start to cement those bonds of friendship that we began last year. It is a smaller team with only 5 members. Anna Todd, Lisa Moore, Janice Nind, Vic McLaughlin and myself. The emphasis this year will be to work to build deeper relationships with all of the people of the church, from the youngest children to the oldest members. We hope to do some children's work each day as well as visiting as many members of the church as possible in their homes. We will also be doing some discipleship work with the senior people who are responsible for leading the church forward.
This year we are also hoping that we will have a big meal celebration with the whole church, which will involve us buying and cooking food for around 400 people. If we can manage it we will also show the Jesus film translated into Haitian Creole at that same meal. Please pray for all the logistics of organising the trip and that the big meal will be a time of real blessing for us and for the church.
We will update this blog as many times as we can, so that you can follow what we are up to during the trip.
Thanks again for all your support and if you complain about how cold it is in Scotland this July please remember us in Haiti, because we will be complaining about how unbelievably hot and humid it is in Haiti.
