Joy Heard From Haiti

They have flown into a different space. 

A culture not like our own. 
Les Cayes, Haiti. 
 The south west section.
On the coast.
6 hours from Port Au Prince. 
The farmer and his daughter, have left the -3 three temperatures, 

chores and school and have joined with other farmers. . . to go. 
They have heard the call.
 God said,  yes

The Safe T homes; refuge for many. 

 Because of your faithfulness in giving and prayer, they are there. 
Just over 5 years ago Haiti suffered one of the worst Earthquakes ever to strike a nation. 
Already needy, this impoverished country needed a boost. 
The effects were devastating. 
They remain to this day. 
But the people. 
The resilience and joy that show forth. 
That is still there. 
Through the struggle. 

This farm girl, she will leave her heart in a nation not of her birth. 
She will never rest until the love of Christ is made known to the world. 

There is no running water in the hotel. 
There are ants in the sink. 
A gecko on the ceiling. 
Yet she remains untouched. 
She will bathe in the pool. 

She is where her heart longs to be. 
In a place where she can give. 
Where she can make a difference. 
We will lose this child to the King of Kings too. 
Just in a different way. 
While God called Elijah out of this world into his heavenly realm. 
God will call Clarissa to live and serve among those that are;
The least of these. 

Matthew 25:40
"The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'

Will you continue to pray? 
Can you help us to lift this nation before God? 
To ask for strength and mercy for this beautiful country?
For wisdom and direction for agencies so willing to help?

We are glad you stopped by. 
We pray your life will be changed by knowing the love of Jesus. 

Here is a little bit of the joy being heard from Haiti.
