The team is doing great. Thanks for your prayers. Mike says it is about 70 degrees with a light breeze. The last time he shared about the weather the team was in the middle of a hurricane. I do not usually get that kind of info. They spent a lot of time interacting with the kids today. Part of the team has medical training, they spent the day helping our medical staff in the clinic. About 2 weeks ago Haiti had a national 3 days of prayer for Port-au-Prince. Mike said that today was the kick off of 43 days of prayer for Port-au-Prince in the Gonaives and Marose area. They had a church service to begin the 43 days. Nathaniel, Nathan and Mike spoke. Mike said many gave their lives to the Lord. Praise God!!! Mike also went down to the docks and checked on the containers, it looks like they will arrive by Thursday and that Mike and the team will be able to get them on Friday. Please pray that all goes smoothly and that they are able to receive them and distribute them according to plan. Tomorrow they will go into Gonaives to feed the children that are poorest among the poor, I have talked about them before, the first 250 children in get to eat that day. It can be a hard day for some team members. It is bitter sweet to me. It is hard to see children hungry, but very rewarding to be able to help feed them. I felt so blessed to be able to be the hands and feet of Jesus and literally spoon the rice and beans into their mouths. It is such a honor. Please pray for both the team and the children. Pray also for the missing luggage and especially for the containers. Thanks again and blessings.
