Through out the week so far, I have felt poured into emotionally and spiritually beyond the extent that I could have ever imagined. Particularly in the past 24 hours I have felt a radical change inside my heart, in ways that I never expected and I know that our team shares this struggle and joy with me. The past few days we have had the opportunity to build relationships with all of the beautiful (or "belle") children and it has been an incredible opportunity to view God's heart and simply be loved on. Every second of that has been incredible and beyond even words, but today was unique.
We started the morning attending the service at the Source de la grace, and let me tell you, it was something that I have personally never experienced. Hearing songs that we have grown up with played in creole with such passion filled me with a sense of connection to our neighbors as I screamed the lyrics, unable to hear myself over the joyful noise. The sermon started passionately and we were captivated, even with the language barrier.
Mid service we were faced with a challenge, as Anjian fell sick with a high fever. She came straight back to the guesthouse to sleep The rest of the service was filled with prayers of healing for her and we returned to the house, blessed, to find her fever had broken and she was feeling much better.
After that, today was a day of rest and spiritual revival. Most of our team spent the afternoon napping and I had the opportunity to talk to some of the other girls for hours, which was such a unique blessing.
Today was ended with more great conversation about the Lord and I felt my heart shift to see a different, deeper side of Haiti. All of our journeys are unique and we can't wait to tell you all about it. I love you mom! See ya'll soon
