Home in Haiti for a Few Days…..by Scott Kedersha

13 different families (33 individuals) arrived safely in Haiti for the fall Watermark short-term discipleship trip. Our day started bright and early (3:00am cst) and I’ve been amazed at how well all our kids (ranging from 9 to 16) have done. The adults have been awesome as well! We arrived safely at Mission of Hope and it’s just about time for lights out.

Tomorrow we’ll hit the road and travel to a nearby village to help serve with our ministry partner, Mission Of Hope Haiti, and to share the gospel in nearby villages. We’re excited to get to spend time with the people of Haiti.

As I reflect back on a long day, I’m excited to be here, but the complaints start to mount in my mind and heart – I’m tired, the bed is terrible, it’s really hot, and there’s no WiFi. And I’m going to miss some good college football games this weekend.

At the same time I remember how quick I am to grumble and complain. I forgot how Good God is and instead choose to focus on the negatives instead of the positive. Somehow I quickly forget the levels of physical and spiritual poverty all around me in Haiti and back home in dallas.

I’m thankful for Paul’s words in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18: rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Will you join us in praying 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 for our team, for the people of Haiti, and for the people of DFW?
