Our week here in Haiti....


We had the water baptism here last week at Grace Village, what a beautiful day!! Seeing all the joy the children had as they publicly proclaimed Jesus as their Lord and Saviour!!!It was great to see Gretchen baptized, seeing the touch of God on her as she was baptized too. The worship team was here with all their instruments as we sang praises together!! It was great to have some of the elders here too as they all watched and then ate lunch with the children.

The best part of the day was when the team brought another girl to live here at Grace Village. She was brought from one of the worst places in Haiti!!! Getting to know her this week and seeing her heart has brought me such joy and happiness!! I have watched her reach out to the other children in such tender ways when someone else is hurt or crying. Making sure that they are comforted or helped!! Even at the doctors clinic this week a baby was crying, and she reached into my backpack and gave the infant her treat. Within moments the baby had stopped crying and the others in the clinic just watched her with smiles.  

This week has kept us busy with doctor visits and lab results. As we are working on keeping the children all strong and healthy. We learned of another huge blessing for our little Joseph! He just came to live with us two weeks ago. He has a problem with his legs that bend inward. He will be able to be fit with braces free of charge to help correct his legs. We are so excited to see the hand of God as he meets the needs of his dear children. I have enjoyed getting to meet other ministries and see how the Lord is working all around us!! We are not alone, we are here to help support and encourage each other!!!

Please continue to pray for these dear children here at Grace Village. They are our future in Haiti, our leaders. Pray that others will see a difference in them where ever they go. That Jesus will shine through them and use them to bring Glory to God!!

Can you please pray for me too, as I have had some kind of a allergic reaction and have hives all over my body. He is my healer!!

Love to you all, Have a blessed week!!
