Update February 24, 2010

The 200 tents arrived!  We went to get them; they wanted to charge us to pick them up!  After fighting much of the day, we finally got them released free!  Some will be set up in Leogane, some in Carrefour.  We still need land in our area to set them on!  The best bargain is the acreage on the mountain, but we need $99,000 yet to buy it.  If you can help, please mark your gift  “Land” and it will go for the mountain property! 

The satellite went in today!  We praise God we finally have clear phone lines! 

Medical teams continue to come and go. A great team from Christian Outreach International just left and another is coming in March! This CityCare team will be leaving, and another will take its place!  It is amazing to me how they just can’t wait to return!  They are experiencing something that cannot be learned from a textbook! 

While waiting in line to see a doctor, many heard the Gospel and gave their hearts to Jesus!  Tonight, another 20 were born again!  This is Haiti’s day.  Many seeds have been sown in this soil for generations and it’s harvest time!  

Three babies were brought to the clinic, hovering between life and death, one almost dead.  They were transported to the hospital just in time to be saved! 

What a joy it is to see Haitians and foreigners working together to save lives, naturally and spiritually!  We are ONE team… whether stationed in Haiti or praying and supporting the work at home.  Because we are functioning as the Body of Christ, this otherwise-overwhelming work is running more smoothly each day! 

As we obey God’s Word, we see His purposes come to light.  I think this is the ‘fasted life’ that Isaiah 58:6-9 talks about. 

Is this not the fast that I have chosen:

–         To loose the bonds of wickedness,

–         To undo the heavy burdens,

–         To let the oppressed go free, and that you

–         Break every yoke?

Is it not

–        To share your bread with the hungry, and that you

–        Bring to your house the poor who are cast out;

–        When you see the naked, that you cover him, and

–        Not hide yourself from your own flesh?

Then your light will break forth like the morning,

–        Your healing shall spring forth speedily, and

–        Your righteousness shall go before you;

–        The glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.

–        Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer;

–        You shall cry, and He will say ‘Here I am.’

When we live each day like this, we can expect great things to happen!  We serve an awesome God Who keeps His promises!
