Wow, I can’t believe it’s almost been a month since my last post!
So much has happened, I don’t even know where to start! I feel like I haven’t stopped going since the minute I got back from Christmas break in St. Marc.
We all came back to work after Christmas, with several new additions. We hit the ground running! We’ve started on a house building project, helped with a crusade for the year anniversary of the earthquake and are currently hosting two teams and gearing up for a third. We went to a worship service at a Brazilian UN post that was amazing, and did a food distribution.
My wonderful friend, Emily O’Byrne came down with Lifeline team #1. I went and stayed the weekend with them, then Emily stayed with me for a week. We actually just took her back to Lifeline today because team #2 is getting in tomorrow. I got permission to go stay the weekend again, so I’m meeting them at the airport and going to stay til Sunday afternoon/evening.
We did the food distribution in a tent city on Tuesday. It was the smoothest distribution I’ve ever been a part of. They had the kids line up and most of them had been given little cards the day before. Emily and I got to take them, child by child to get their cup of soup and guide them to the prayer “tunnel” of 5 people from the teams. I was really blessed to get to do that. Most of them were really grateful and not too many tried to double back and get seconds. There were some precious little children there. I pray they saw Jesus in us and saw the soup as a gift from the Lord!
It’s definitely been a growing time and there are way more details I could share, but I don’t have the time right now. Hopefully I’ll have time to post again soon.
Please continue to pray for me!
