“Hump Day” may have been the best day yet here in Haiti. Our team started out pumped up and focused to spread the good news, and that’s exactly what happened. We were welcomed off the safari wagon by several beautiful children, eager to play and love. Great conversations were started with the people of Titanyen about their lives here in the village, where they come from, what they do for work, etc. As each team spoke more with the men and women of the village, the Lord used us to encourage believers to continue boldly in their faith. Several women expressed the challenges they face on a daily basis in their cultures, and many of us were able to relate. As people walked by and curiosity spiked, our team courageously engaged these people, resulting in a new sister in Christ.
After lunch, the Lord showed His mighty power once again by giving us all strength to go back out to the village (the rice is beginning to weigh on us) and continue His work. A group of us engaged with a man who practices voodoo and were able to share the power of Christ with him. He expressed his belief in Jesus but has fear that he will be unemployed if he accepts the Truth. He promised to go to Mission of Hope church on Sunday, and we will continue to pray for him.Others of us had more challenging conversations and were able to witness the need for peace in the community.

As we wrapped up Day 4, we were humbled and encouraged to know that we have three new sisters in Christ, several conversations helping people feel assurance of salvation, a full stomach of Haitian spaghetti, and more than anything, the love and comfort of Christ in our hearts.
God is at work, but there is still work to do.
