Day 4: Prayer Requests

I’m sorry I did not get to post an update yesterday, it was close to 10:00 pm by the time I finished all the ministry preparation needed for today.  As much as I love to blog and keep you all informed of what’s happening, the mission comes first! 🙂   I will be posting the update as soon as possible.

Today we are doing our 3rd clinic, this time in Carefour, a region 1 1/2 – 2 hours away.  My requests for this clinic are the same as the previous days, except we have added a new part of our clinic experience…prayer walkd and tent-to-tent visitations!  The team of 4 who went out yesterday, came back with stories of families who welcomed them with sincere generosity and hospitality.  Many expressed gratitude as they explained that we were their first visitors since the earthquake.  In 7 months, not one person had taken the time to see how they were.  Their tents were simple and bare, but they kept them exceptionally clean and took pride in what they did have.  Contentment and gratitude the way God intends!  So, today, please pray for these prayer walks and family visitations.  That we’ll continue to have favor with the people and that they will be receptive to God’s Truth!

Also pray for our long journey.  Most of the roads in Haiti are horrendous.  The drivers are chaotic and dangerous.  At some points, in the mountain regions, they’re narrow with steep dropoffs.  Combine them all together & you have a recipe for a very scary bus ride!

Thanks for you all your prayers!

    This is awesome, Lindsay. I was actually reading about Carrefour in my Haiti book. It is amazing that you are there helping the people living in this place described in detail by the author. And I believe you about the roads. Just be glad there are no roadblocks of tires on fire. Haiti has had other types of upheaval than just natural disasters. It is a good time for ya’ll to be there. Lifting you up in prayers.

      Thanks Wendy! I love the pictures, too, but The last few days, the internet has been really slow and cuts off suddenly…which causes problems with uploading the pictures quickly. If I can get them to upload again, i definitely will!
