3 times in 1 year = God has rocked my face off!!

I am so sorry that I have not been faithful to blog about my past adventures to Haiti... I wish I had enough time in the day to put it on the web... BUT I am going back to Haiti tomorrow with a new group! My goal is to update the blog as I am there. No promises, but I am going to try my hardest!

Our itinerary goes like this... can you have an itinerary in Haiti??!!! Ha:

Tuesday, December 29, 2009 --> Fly to Fort Lauderdale
Wednesday, December 30, 2009 --> We land in Haiti and will head to Passe Catabois
Thursday, December 31, 2009-Tuesday, January 5, 2010 --> Our agenda is to LOVE people.. BEAUTIFUL
Wednesday, January 6, 2010 --> We travel to Port-de-Paix very early in the morning and fly back into Port-au-Prince at 6 30 am! We will spend the remainder of that day with Beth & Jon McHoul from Heartline Ministries to learn about what they are doing to bring God's Kingdom in Haiti
Thursday, January 7, 2010 --> Becca, Norman, Parker, and Brandon head back to the States. Their flight arrives in Monroe at 9:21 pm. Annie, Ainsley, and I will be staying a day longer to hang out at Heartline.
Friday, January 8, 2010 --> Annie, Ainsley, and I head back to the States and our flight arrives in Monroe at 9:21 pm

How you can PRAY:
~ travel (flights making it on time and bags to make it with us all the way to Passe Catabois)
~ guidance and wisdom(for me as I lead this group of my friends)
~ the hearts of the people... that they may see the love that we have for them is only from the love that CHRIST has poured out upon us *1 john 4:19*
~our team (that we would be refreshed each morning as we rise to serve and be with the people)
~language barrier (please pray that we would have a supernatural ability to speak and understand Creole)

Please stay tuned for updates! I am looking forward to being used by God to bring His Kingdom in Haiti in the smallest of ways. " the quiet daily powers of dying to self and serving, and loving and laughing, of simple tenderness, and unseen kindness BECAUSE IF ANYTHING MATTERS, THEN ANYTHING MATTERS."

Miss you guys already! So excited for the stories when you all get back!!! I'll be praying for each of love - a deep love that only comes from something greater than give - give of yourselves, your agenda, and serve - as the great Momma T states, "Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to
do the humble work."

Can't wait for each update! Love each of you!! Hug and kiss some Haitian people for me! : )
