I was very excited to go on this trip while at the same time a little trepidatious about all the unknowns. I knew God was going with us, but He surprised me with His constant presence and strength throughout the entire trip.
So many times I found myself quoting verses I had put to memory, specifically for the trip regarding strength. Let me tell you...the Word works. Prayer works.
If I was feeling overwhelmed by the physical elements, I would pray and quote the Word. Almost immediately I would feel a surge of strength and assurance that I could move forward with the task ahead. I was just stunned by how quickly He answered my every prayer.
The prayer cover from home was amazing. Tracie and I both could literally feel the presence of folks praying for us. I woke up the day we were to speak very emotional. I was kind of a wreck! But I knew people were praying for us. I knew Sean was covering us and our family and friends were as well. When it came time for us to speak, we could both feel God's anointing on us. He relieved us of all fear and let His message come through. As I sat and listened as Tracie spoke, with such authority and compassion, I thought, "How did we get to Haiti?" Only Jesus. Only Jesus.
I want to thank each one of you who gave to Living Well so that we could go on this wonderful ministry trip. Your financial gifts, your gifts of skirts and shirts for the ladies, and your gift of prayer cover means the world to us. You went with us. You loved these precious Haitian women. You had a part in the Kingdom, just like we did. Thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. We couldn't have gone without your engagement in the journey! I love the Body of Christ!!
Look for some more insights from our trip in future blogs! Thanks again for supporting Living Well!
