Sabbatical Day 40 – Haiti Day 1
Today I’m flying into Haiti and realized my family is spread across 3 time zones. I’m on the East Coast, the kids are in Austin, and Raquel is in Seattle. As I’m headed into Haiti, my hope for the trip is to:
1. Serve the people and children at Mission of Hope the way Christ would serve them. It may be that I just show love to the kids so they know that they are valued. My kids experience love from their family every day. These kids don’t have parents to love on them.
2. See how God is at work in a place that has been devastated by disaster. It’s been 6 months since the earthquake and there’s been little done to start rebuilding. I love seeing God do things only he can do.
3. Spend time alone with God so I can hear more clearly what he’s saying to me without the distractions of life back in the states.
4. Learn and grow from the people at Mission of Hope. This organization is only 12 years old and having a huge impact in the lives of hundreds of thousands of people each day. There is so much to learn from them.
