Thank you sooo much for your prayers for Mike and Nathan as they traveled from Port-au-Prince, north to Marose. So many verses come to mind tonight John 6:39, Deuteronomy 31:6, Isaiah 41:10, Psalm 46:1, and Thessalonians 3:3 which says “But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one”. God was faithful today and protected Mike and Nathan. A bridge in Cabaret, just south of Acahaie, one of the hot spots I mentioned, broke this morning. Nathan could not get to the airport to pick Mike up. One of our friends, who is also a doctor in our clinic, lives in Port-au-Prince, so he picked Mike up and drove him to the broken bridge, Mike then walked from there to meet Nathan. He said it was chaos, truck drivers trying to toss their goods to trucks waiting on the other side of the bridge, thousands of people trying to figure out travel on the only highway going from Port-au-Prince to the northern part of the country, and having a bridge break, bringing ALL traffic to a stop. Then after connecting with Nathan, a group of motorcycles surround them and held them up at gunpoint. Mike said he was glad that it was just him and Nathan, as it was very unnerving having a gun in your face. Because they were on motorcycles, they were just after small things, so they did not take any luggage, but they took phones, money and wallets. Nathan unfortunately lost two good phones and his wallet, which had no money in it. The night before Mike left, I felt like God said to take a fake wallet and a broken phone. So when Mike met up with Nathan he hid his good phone and wallet. When they were held up minutes later, he had the broken phone and fake wallet (one of our kid’s play ones, complete with pretend credit cards and a few real dollars). God protected them, we know of others that have been shot, these men robbed them and then left. We are so thankful. God was faithful. Just minutes later UDMO, the Haitian police arrived for crowd control, they reported the robbery to the police, but probably nothing will come of it. I know we are constantly saying how important your prayers are to us, I hope you know that today they made all the difference.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
On another note, Mike and Nathan would love your prayer covering this Friday and Saturday, for the first of two Pastors conferences. Pray for the Holy Spirit to open ears, minds and hearts. Also please pray this Sunday, as Mike has been asked to preach in Pass Rein. And again thank you for YOUR prayers.
