Greetings from Haiti! After spending a week in Nan Wo with Pastor
Louinet and the camp kids, we are excited and worn out. Excited for
what God is doing in the lives of the Haitian youth we worked with,
and tired because of the amount of energy it took.
Our week started with Zach Day sharing a message to Louinet’s church
and our whole team sharing music as part of the church service. We
loved absorbing the cross-cultural aspects of the Body of Christ in
Haiti! On Monday the campers started arriving, and we began breaking
off into workshops on Tuesday. Our days were filled with weaving,
bead-making, sports, music, health science, and even church repair. In
between we got to experience the drenching power of summer rains in
Haiti, which arrived like clockwork every afternoon. By Friday the
camp ended and we were immeasurably blessed by the gratitude all the
campers showed as they individually walked up to us and thanked us. We
were sorry to see them go, and many left with tears.
Now we have transitioned to Port au Prince to help with English Camp,
a summer ministry our friends put on for children in the neighborhood
that offers positive, Christ-oriented education and activities for
kids ages 5-14.
Urgent Prayer Need: Tropical Storm Emily is now aimed directly at this
island and it is only a matter of when and how badly it will effect
us. The main threat is intense rainfall that may hinder or stop the
camp from functioning and cause local flooding. Please pray that the
Lord will spare us from major effects of Tropical Storm Emily.
