Our morning was spent completing home visits in Source Matelas—giving us a larger glimpse into the day-to-day life of the families here in Haiti.
We split into two teams—allowing us to connect with multiple families. This also hopefully aided in not completely overwhelming each household when 20 North Americans showed up on their doorstep. Hopefully. At each home, we asked questions regarding their family demographics, access to things such as health care and water, and asked about their spiritual condition.
This information was documented by our team and will be followed up by Mission of Hope, a Village Champion, and local Haitian churches. It’s very important that we be of assistance while we are here but of upmost importance that we consistently support and build up the local church. Our team will only serve here for a week. The Haitian church will be the ones to bring the good news of Jesus and His message to every man, woman and child in Haiti.
It was a privilege to connect with these families on their behalf, and I know that God’s name will be praised when they are able to respond to the needs of these families and transform Haiti one family at a time.
Our afternoon allowed us time with the children of Source Matelas. We were honored to help with their Kids Club. Members of our team sang songs, shared a Bible lesson, and a few may have danced a pretty good Father Abraham. As the time went on, more children continued to join us until there were likely 100 kids in attendance. We finished our time inside by serving them a meal accompanied with juice. Everyone then headed outside to jump rope, play soccer, run races—basically kids’ choice—which made for a fantastic time for all.
Closing today with a scripture that was shared by one of the women during our home visits–her favorite scripture.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
