Update February 11, 2010

It seems like yesterday, yet so long ago, that Haiti was struck with a violent Earthquake, with its epicenter in our City of Carrefour.  In the middle of all the devastation, we know God is here!  His hand is felt and His voice heard as we go about trying to rescue as many people as we can – spirit, soul and body. From the time we realized our buildings were standing and all around us, there were no others, I have been amazed at the Hand of God at work, setting us up to be a blessing in Carrefour.  There has been little time to rest or to reflect on our own feelings because time is of the essence in getting our people up on their feet!

We have been so blessed to see God’s daily provision of water and food and medical aid and encouragement from the people around the world, coming to our rescue.  We have never seen such unity of purpose!  It’s wonderful!

Terry has been home for the past two days… and very occupied with the task at hand to find adequate housing for the Haitians before the rainy season.  When something like this happens, everything is a priority!

Thank you for sharing the good news of what God is doing through Light Ministries in Haiti.  Today I was reflecting on Isaiah 61.  This is what was prophesied about Jesus, but it is also the mandate we have as His servants.  I think this shows us Who is in charge, what we are to do and what we can expect when we are obedient…

The Spirit of the Lord is upon us;

He has anointed us to preach good tidings to the poor;

He has sent us to heal the brokenhearted,

to proclaim liberty to the captives,

and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;

to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,

and the day of vengeance of our God;

to comfort all who mourn,

 to console those who mourn in Zion,

to give beauty for ashes,

the oil of joy for mourning,

The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;

That they may be called trees of righteousness,

The planting of the Lord that He may be glorified.” 

“…instead of shame, they shall have double honor,

And instead of confusion, they shall rejoice in their portion.

Therefore in their land they shall possess double;

Everlasting joy shall be theirs” 

This is why Light Ministries is in Haiti.  The results will speak for themselves when, in the days to come, we see only HIM!
