Sunday our Team was commissioned during church.
and after church we had a team meeting. We have a lot of cool things planned for the people in Haiti and they all seem to be coming together really well. The commissioning service was really great and very moving for me, there is just something very emotional about being on your knees at the alter with your church family all standing around you with their hands on you praying. The feeling of God’s power in the room and also a feeling of peace all at the same time is just too hard to explain . After the commissioning service was over there all the sudden was a sense of finality and a wow we are really going to do this feeling! Not that I ever doubted we would do it, but it just seemed so far away and it was like suddenly this just got really really real!
Haiti… wow, I can’t believe God is calling me back there again. A long time ago a friend said something to me about going to Haiti and I replied, ” you don’t want to go there, its dangerous there!” Looking back I laugh at that because never ever in my wildest dreams did I ever envision myself going to Haiti, or even on a mission trip for that matter, but now here I am getting ready for my second visit there!
A minute ago I was thinking about how it’s really cool the places that God will take you if you let Him. He will take you out of your comfort zone and yet when you get out of your comfort zone that is when you realize that you are where you belonged all along.
I am excited to see where God will lead us on this trip!
