We Made It!

We've got a really great team here this week.  4 men and 8 women, 6 of whom are returning and 6 here for the first time.

Shortly after arrival we had the opportunity to deliver Feed My Starving Children manna packs to a Tent City.  This was our first exposure to the beautiful Haitian people, some full of joy, some desperation.  While passing out food in in a tent city there is never enough for everyone.  It is a brutal, unfair process trying to decide who gets food and who doesn't. We know some will have full bellies as they go to bed tonight.  Wish that was true for all.

As we arrived back to the guest house we were full of emotions:  gratitude and guilt, underscored by the big question "Why."

Broken and poured out, Jesus died for us.  In this, He gave us the incredible gift of eternal life.  He also showed us how to live.  Broken and poured out.  We will approach the week being willing to let our hearts break and to pour ourselves out so that He can be made known.

  1. Thank you for posting Karen. It's great to see those mana packs in action! John 9:1-3 seems to fit the occasion:
    As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" "Neither this man nor his parents sinned," said Jesus, "but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him."
