|Good evening good people,
Once again Melinda led our powerwalk first thing this morning. On the way back to COTP the kids walked with us or we walked with them as they were making their way to school all dressed in their pink & gray uniforms.
Pastor Cross & team have invested hours here asking questions, hearing needs observing the great work going on so he can best do what has been requested “partnership” with this unique ministry & help take it to the next level
So yesterday Doug built a table and today he built a twin sized bed! I hear for an encore he’s going to make a crib. Jesus carpenter serious skills!!! Pastor Gerry, Ethan, Tom & Greg took the sidewalk to a whole new level. It’s almost to the first house and the residents are so happy to see it. Please pray for them as they labor in the hot sun during what seems to me is the hottest part of the day. One of the workers became really ill from not hydrating.
Trinity has a really wonderful group of teen girls here who without a doubt loves the Lord and has servant’s hearts. Today they helped me assemble the gift bags for the nannies. Included in the bags are bandanas courtesy of Rosedale’s children’s ministry with a little note hand decorated by our kids. So the girls from Trinity wrote their life verses on decorated cards in both English and creole to add to the bags.
Marie & Melinda spent the morning at the market. Afterwards they did a lot of food prep for one of the house mother who is responsible for 10 children. Lots of chopping and slicing & dicing of vegetables going on. Thank you Lord for the great minds who came up with the food chopper called Ninja!
But the highlight of the day came when the group was gifted with the opportunity to just hang out and spend time with the children from one of the houses. After the teens completed arts & crafts for one family the family below us brought all 8 of their children out for fresh air and team Trinity loved on those babies for about an hour. They did movement exercises, played ball, and just held them in their arms. I think the adults had way more fun than the kids.
We are planning a economic community development summit with some key business leaders who are strong believers from the U.S. Canada & Korea & South America to launch a wholisthic strategy that will empower the disenfranchised here in Haiti. Pray pray pray God is up to something great
For dinner it was all about the tacos while sitting outside on the porch enjoying each other’s company. And now we are all slowing down for the evening. But I wanted to thank you for your prayers before I fell asleep.
Tammy, for God’s cross-cultural team
