By 9 AM in Haiti, the sun is already sweltering
…And in the farming hamlet of Nan Wo, a mile and a half outside of Dessalines, there is a flurry of activity under the morning sun rays. Women lay out their best dresses and begin doing their daughters’ hair. Men pull out there best slacks and button-down shirts and polish their shoes. Musicians begin tuning up their instruments and practicing their choruses. Preparation for the whole day seems to be all happening at once while a cacophony of rooster crowing, goat bleating, and motorcycle traffic fill the air. And then out of it all, the bright shining beautiful Haitian faces all start appearing.
Please be praying for the spiritual growth of the people of Nan Wo. The leadership of Pastor Louinet has been a great help, but the people need to take ownership of their faith and have personal understanding of God’s Word to go on to maturity. Pray for God’s work in the whole nation of Haiti–pastors, church leaders, missionaries,and heads of families especially.
Also, pray for safe travel back to Port au Prince tomorrow. The road can be grueling, and you never know what you might run into : )
Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work in us; to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever, amen – Eph 3:20-21
