Is it possible to have peace in the midst of such unrest? We woke up yesterday and over 120 employees gathered on the courtyard and circled up in prayer. I told them about what the Americans were doing for them…praying and fasting. Many of them told me that while they fast nearly every day…..today it will be with purpose. Today they will fast for God.
How beautiful to see people gathered in their work areas with Bibles out. How beautiful to see the tears that fall every day but today they fall for HIM. How beautiful the emails of encouragement we got…..churches fasting and praying…..people all over the USA…people in CANADA – even BRAZIL?? There was a group that was in Brazil doing a mission trip who happened to check email yesterday who got their people there to fast. How AMAZING is our Heavenly Father?
There are layers of darkness here in Haiti….I felt God peel them back yesterday. I went to the courthouse downtown to talk with the judge about a matter and he said to me – “thank the blancs for their prayers today. I know it was because of them that I was able to handle this case in the way that I did” What? They knew downtown we were praying? Stories after stories of people telling me about something good that happened to them today and gave GOD the glory because they knew that everyone was praying and fasting on their behalf.
I want to THANK YOU for remembering us and our family here.
THE POWER OF PRAYER:
**BANK MONEY CAME YESTERDAY
**DIESEL TRUCKS ARE IN PORT-DE-PAIX (ROAD OPENED FROM GONAIVES TO PORT-DE-PAIX)
**PRICE OF DIESEL DROPPED YESTERDAY LATE MORNING
**NO SHOOTINGS OR MAJOR CRIME IN OUR SURROUNDING VILLAGES
**NEWS THAT OUR CRATES MAY COME THIS WEEK AND THEY’RE FULL OF FOOD AND SUPPLIES
**PEOPLE WHO DON’T NORMALLY TAKE THE TIME TO BE WITH CHRIST….TOOK THE TIME.
I spent a few hours reading through Psalms and Proverbs today. What PEACE I had as I read through the verses….for Haiti…..for us as leaders…..for me as I grow. Did it take a country to crumble for me to open up the word and study as I did? Can I have that same peace everyday by forcing the time to be alone with God. I’m sure it’s the same for you as it is for us here…..God doesn’t give you the time to be with Him……you have to TAKE IT. There is always someone waiting to talk to us……always something else left to do and so I can choose to shut my office door and pray….or let Satan distract me all day long with random things.
I found some comfort in so many verses…….here are a few:
Psalm 135:14 For the Lord will give justice to his people and have compassion on his servants
Psalm 144:14 May there be no enemy breaking through our walls, no going into captivity, no cries of alarm in our town square. Yes joyful are those who live like this. Joyful indeed are those whose GOD is the Lord.
Psalm 145:8 The Lord is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. The Lord is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all his creation.
Psalm 146:7 He gives justice to the oppressed and food to the hungry.
Psalm 146: 9 The Lord protects the foreigners among us. He cares for the orphans and widows but he frustrates the plans of the wicked.
A COUNTRY DEDICATED TO SATAN WILL SURELY DIE. BUT IF WE CAN UNITE TOGETHER…..WITH GOD’S HELP AND WISDOM HE GIVES……HE WILL FRUSTRATE THOSE PLANS OF THE WICKED VOODOO……OF THE WICKED GOVERNMENT….AND WE WILL GAIN GROUND IN THIS COUNTRY FOR CHRIST.
