We have one more work day after today so we worked extra hard today for God’s glory on the projects.
The plumbing was completed today. All windows on the school building along the road now have the awning frames installed and tomorrow we finish those up. Also the fence along the road has been installed and the final work on the block for the fence has been completed. Below are a couple of job site pictures that show this.
We’d like to do a special shout out to the Colorado team for all of the great work that they collectively did with the Haitians last October!
We also continued to build on our relationships. Cody sat down with a child today and the child delicately deconstructed and then reconstructed a flower and then showed cody how he could blow bubbles with what he constructed.
I’d like to continue with the story from yesterday now. Matt Wilson has been working on relationships with two Haitian men over the past several weeks and he brought them to Christianville for our nightly devotions. Last night we went to the rooftop for devotions and closed with prayer requests. During the prayer request time, these two Haitian men (names are Dadou and Dimitri – pictured below) asked that we pray for them to be closer to God.
Scott Couch quoted many verses from the bible and discussed, through scripture, what it means to be closer to God and what Jesus has done for each one of us. The young men were then asked to talk about this further in the main area of the guesthouse after we were finished on the roof.
Scott Couch, Matt and Chris reviewed the Romans Road and quoted more scripture for these two men. At the end of the discussion, both men decided to accept Jesus as their savior and are excited to work toward baptism. Praise God!
This evening, we held devotions on the rooftop again and we had these two Haitian men join us again, Matt, Rochner’s son and Pastor Benito. Also joining us was Elizabeth Bird (the Christianville Guesthouse Coordinator) and a woman named Deb Runge who is doing mission work in Haiti through the Celebrate Recovery Ministry. It was a beautiful evening with a slight breeze and a full moon. After prayer requests, we all laid hands on Pastor Benito who was in the center (in the hot seat) and prayed for his family, the church, the school, perseverance, understanding, fortitude and many other things. Before the prayer, Scott Couch asked that as we pray to utter words or phrases that come to us that are good and are pure that may help Pastor Benito. What a special prayer this was and we all ended with tears and hugged Pastor Benito.
That’s all we got.
Thank you for your continued prayers!
Scott Norton, Larry Becker, Mike Welch, Chris Lyons, Cody Cother and Scott Couch.
