Haiti!

Hello friends and family! If you are on this email, it's because one of your loved ones has the privilege of serving the Lord in Haiti this week. 
As we close on our second full day here, the juxtaposition is deep; our hearts are filled with joy, yet are broken at the same time for our brothers and sisters in Haiti.  We have had the honor of worshipping the Almighty God together, as well as serving alongside our friends.  Both the men and women have labored hard, moving rocks, cinder blocks, cement and sand as we contribute to the building of pit latrines for two families as well as a guesthouse for 410Bridge that will generate jobs and a stronger platform to add capacity to the mission here in Bohoc.  We have also had our hearts stolen by the sweet children of Matthew 28 orphanage and Youth in Action.  Some of the best moments have come from genuine interaction with these precious souls.  As we are loving on them, Christ is pouring into our spirits.  We are awestruck with the blessings God has bestowed upon us at home, including the tremendous gift of your friendship, love and support.  We are truly overwhelmed by His grace and mercy, certainly to a degree that we cannot quite convey in words.  We look to the Lord with expectant eyes and hearts as we follow Him on our journey the rest of this week.  Please continue to pray for us- that God would give us eyes to see and ears to hear and that He would let our hearts overflow with love for Him, one another, and our Haitian friends. 
Follow our hearts and feet throughout our Haitian adventure at http://globalxhaiti.tumblr.com/.
