The team has safely made it up to the orphanage. Thank you for your prayers.
Tomorrow the team will mostly focus on the orphanage children. They will be giving out sponsor gifts and playing and interacting with the children. Nathan will be working on getting the containers. It truly is unbelievable how inefficient and bogged down the government can be in Haiti at times. But we have hope that we are close. So again, we ask for persistence in prayer for the safe delivery of the containers. We have been told there is still one more piece of paperwork missing, that necessitates a trip to the docks in Port-au-Prince. It is amazing how much red tape is involved to help bring relief to the people of Haiti. I guess when we finally get the containers, it will show God's glory.
Mike said the team will probably go up to Peru (pay-roo) on Saturday. When the previous team was in Peru, there were 40 salvations. The next Sunday Nathan lead 30 more to the Lord. Since then I know of 15 that have been brought to salvation. We have hired a pastor for Peru. Also we have purchased more Bibles in Haitian Creole to take up to Peru. Mike is excited to be traveling up north to see them again.
Please pray for God to continue to move.
