Thank you for your prayers for our recent trip to Port au Prince, Haiti. God certainly blessed this joint effort between Piney Grove Baptist Church in Samson, Alabama, and St. Andrew Baptist Church in Panama City, Florida. Our team worked alongside of SCORE International Missions, a worldwide mission organization with a presence in Haiti.

I want to encourage you to read the team member testimonies that will be posted to the blog over the coming days, and you can still access our field updates from the "Blog Archive" link on the right hand side of the page. Thank you again for your prayers!

Our Final Day

We had a great time today with the children at the orphanage. LeAnna and Kim put together a great schedule of activities, beginning with a drama skit in which we acted out the story of the good samaritan. We played several games with the children, shared Scripture with them, and just tried to love on them and encourage them. It was obvious from the smiles on their faces that the Lord allowed us to bring some joy into their lives today.

We will leave Haiti tomorrow knowing that we have accomplished the task that the Lord put before us. Although different than many of us imagined, it was no less rewarding. I will leave this country with a new perspective, a renewed passion for missions, and a truer understanding of Haiti's need for our prayers. I am infinitely thankful for our church that lives out the missionary call of Acts 1:8, for our families that so graciously support us while we are on the field, and for prayer partners that have no doubt sustained us through many difficult circumstances this week. We love you all, and look forward to our reunion tomorrow.
