I recently led a team on a mission trip to Haiti. The team consisted of 18 people from 4 different churches in 2 different states. The amount of work this team accomplished was amazing. Check out the video below which will give you a taste of what we accomplished.
I also posted updates on our church website which give a more detailed description of what we accomplished.
A big thank you goes out to all our sponsors and prayer partners. God did a great thing through this trip. Not only did this change the lives of the children we served, it changed the lives of everyone who went on this trip.
I am excited that this is just the beginning of the story. There is no going back from here. Our mission board in our church has a great Bible verse that describes this experience. It says:
If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,” does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will he not repay man according to his work? Proverbs 24:12 (ESV)
Basically, once we see for ourselves and our eyes our opened up. There is no other option but to respond. In the weeks to come we will be looking at enlisting additional sponsors, preparing a fundraiser, and planning another trip back to Haiti. To help us further the work we will also be looking to enlist other churches to partner with us. If you are a pastor or church leader and would like to get your church involved in this ministry, I would love to hear from you.
In the next week we will be looking to launch a new website dedicated to the work in Haiti. The thing I love about his work is that it is not “got to” work. It is “get to” work. It is a privilege to serve the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
