Rod, John, and I arrived here in Grand Goave after a short helicopter ride yesterday afternoon. We spent the remainder of yesterday assessing construction of latrine installations near our camp and working on a site plan for the potential shelter near the Samaritan’s Purse Port-au-Prince base. The Grand Goave base is quite a bit smaller and has more of a family atmosphere, so I am getting to know the people I will be living with and interacting with over the next 2 weeks.
Praise God for a great day today! Rod and I worked most of the day preparing and installing a water filtration and purification system for a ministry and school called Mission of Hope. We will finish the installation on Monday after resting and worshiping tomorrow. I enjoyed spending some time with the people who came to help us level the ground for the system, build a temporary platform for a water storage bladder, and assemble the pieces of the system. I was amazed at their willingness and follow-through in helping us with the setup! God gave us the ability to communicate instructions fairly well, and I attempted to speak a little French. Pray that God would continue to increase my desire and ability to learn and to have more confidence in using it to humbly learn more from people while I am here in Haiti. May God be glorified through my words, actions, and attitudes as He gives the strength to serve!
Please pray for Keefe and Paola Daly and their family and friends in Concepcion, Chile. I regularly support and pray for Keefe and Paola, who are involved with campus ministry in Chile. Please ask God to use the earthquake in their area to show His power and draw people to Himself.
The LORD reigns; let the peoples tremble!
He sits enthroned upon the cherubim; let the earth quake!
The LORD is great in Zion;
he is exalted over all the peoples.
Let them praise your great and awesome name!
Holy is he!
The King in his might loves justice.
You have established equity;
you have executed justice
and righteousness in Jacob.
Exalt the LORD our God;
worship at his footstool!
Holy is he!
