"…just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” Matthew 20.28

 

“We arrived in Port-au-Prince and were overwhelmed by the great need. Tent villages & crumbled, dirty, grafitti’d buildings…the gutters and side of the roads were covered in trash and pigs and wild dogs were eating it… for some of us this was a our first missions trip…as we drove through the city we saw faces of those who were angry and needy… things got real somber for us. But then God took us through a rainforest and mountains on our 10 hour bus ride to Jeremie and we marveled at God’s creation. The spirit of the team lifted. We spent the next 7 days in Jeremie serving in orphanages, schools, hospitals and got to deliver food to needy families. Some people worked every day doing back-breaking labor on a well project in an effort to start the clean drinking water distribution center. Days later we got to teach VBS… I remember this one little kid was so stoked to learn what rainbows meant! There was another little boy – an orphan - who wanted me to retell the story of Jesus in the boat. I saw such a hunger for Jesus and a hard working spirit in him. These people and this country will always be in my prayers!”
