The day of worship began at 6:30 for some people. There was a service in Limbe and Pastor J was asked to be the speaker at this service. Some of us stayed and waited for the service on campus, but the service Pastor J spoke at was energetic, preaching was difficult because there was not a whole lot of congregational response as opposed to the worship service at Port Margot which consisted of around 500 members! Acts 12:1-12
The majority of the group went to the service here on campus at 9:30 a.m. This service was filled with singing, announcements, and a traditional preaching. The service was about keeping God at the center of everything in our lives. He is the Almighty One! He also spoke about being content with what we have and there is not enough ink and paper in the world for all the blessings He has done in our lives. During the service, I was thinking to myself with admiration of the Haitian people who are so excited and ready to worship, that sometimes we need to be better at coming before our Lord with such enthusiasm! If we do feel as though we are enthusiastic to come before our Savior…come visit the Haitians! We could learn a lot from them.
After church we had lunch which consisted of pizza and tuna noodle casserole and molasses cookies. If anyone thinks we are losing weight while being here…your wrong! After lunch we spent more time playing with the children while some people napped, chilled out, etc. The kids are really blessing each one of us with their sweet sincere personalities and lovableness :-) We had our VBS program at 3:00 this afternoon with a little over 80 children! Their attention span is pretty admirable too for such young ones! We have been doing all the days of creation during our program and they seem to be enjoying and participate very well! After the program we handed out a pair of sunglasses to each of the children and the joy on their faces was priceless! All of us went picture crazy and the children were loving it! It was a blessing to see the happiness that fills them with little things we take for granted.
Thank you to our families and friends who are continually praying for us night and day. We miss you all very much and send our love! Stacy
