Update April 27, 2010

Things are slowly getting back to ‘normal’ here.  The house and church are coming back into shape, room-by-room!  It seems we are about to ‘function’ again as the mess is dwindling!  Rooms and storage depots are still in the process of being put back together.  In some spaces, literally everything was on the floor in a heap and then the roof and walls collapsed and we had that mess besides!  That has meant sorting nails, screws, bolts, car parts, generator parts, tools, plumbing, electrical, church and ministry supplies and everything else imaginable  all dumped together!  It takes many people and a long time!  Now, the big challenge is to find the right people to maintain these cleaned-up spaces! 

All of the departments of the church are moving forward, and plans for expansion are still in progress!  Our people are moving forward as if there was no interruption!  They are a resilient people!  Isn’t that great?

Terry has had appointments in the States the past days regarding housing and will return on Thursday, ready to meet with Haitian leaders to present their proposals.  Please pray for connections  with those with like-vision and purpose to rebuild this nation. There are many opportunities available, but we must be led by the Spirit of God to know with whom we should work. 

We are in awe as we “Trust in the Lord with all our hearts and lean not on our own understanding, and in all our ways, acknowledge Him, that He is bringing it to pass!”  (Proverbs 3:5-6)  This is what we, together, must do each day, every step of the way.  Thanks so much for your encouraging words, prayers and financial support. We honestly couldn’t do it without you!   

As I hear the generator running, I am reminded of our ‘overnight miracle’ to buy it and get it on the boat to Haiti right after the earthquake.  The city power is off most of the time again.  Today, we had none!  If it weren’t for this new generator, we could not function!   Thanks again… We will never forget it!
