Double Dipping Mother's Day
Happy Mother's Day - again!
Today we celebrate Mother's Day in Haiti. It's sweet for all the missionary moms serving in Haiti, as we get 2 days of special recognition! Happy Mother's Day to all our special moms in Haiti today!!!
As we celebrate Mother's Day, I can't help but think of George Floyd calling out to his Mama during his last moments of life. It's been a difficult season on so many fronts here in the US. I find myself not knowing just how to praying. I know that God works all things together for good for those who are called according to His purpose. Sometimes that path can be very difficult and painful. I know that it is HIS will that all would be saved - coming into the knowledge of who HE is. The path to that place may not be easy, but I do believe that will be the result - people being drawn to Jesus. Life may not be as comfortable as it once was - but when we keep our eyes on Jesus, knowing that our lives are hidden in God in Christ, maybe comfort isn't as important as it once was. Jesus, may we love the way you do!!!
My family and I were thrilled to be able to meet up with the Sutton Family this week. Andrew and Angie moved to Haiti with their first baby about 8 years ago. They are now a family of six and some of our very favorite people in this world. Angela and her children were able to join us, as well. We took advantage of the moment to record some worship songs for our online church services, too. I especially enjoyed this one - Do It Again, which we shared this morning for our online service. My husband had requested a song in English - here it is:
We are still handing out masks in Haiti and have now received donations to make 1,320 of them! We are so grateful for all of you who have contributed! Whether you donate $10 or $1,000, your gift makes a world of difference in someone's life. We don't know how many lives are being spared because people are wearing these masks today. Thank you so much for your hearts of love and compassion for our friends in Haiti!!!
We were saddened by the report that both of our clinic nurses became ill this week. We have been praying for Sarah and Baby, trusting the Lord to raise them up.
Dr. Mabou and Dr. Evens have been working hard helping the patients coming to the clinics.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support for our friends in Haiti!!!
