Haiti Update: Sunday Morning ChurchRich Stigall
This morning, the team and I attended Pastor Moise Vaval’s church (this is Moise with his lovely family) – some of our group really needed to be uplifted after the KU loss last night. We arrived in time to share in worship, and it was ‘all out’ – especially when the church began singing “I’ll fly away” in Creole, and we joined in English. Moise’s church building was severely damaged during the quake and his congregation were all impacted in some way. To hear us all lift our voices praising God for our eternity in heaven puts it in perspective. Moise’s church, Source de la Grace, is one of our 10 village plants in Haiti for 2010.. Much to be done there – and its a great work that God is doing – reaching scores of new folks with the love and hope in Christ.
Pastor Jimmy Dodd preached this morning on Mark 2, and you could imagine their damaged tin roof opening up to welcome the paralyzed man brought in by his friends. Then, one of the folks on our visiting team here, Magalie, was joined by her dad – who she has not seen for 10 years since she was last in Haiti. Reunions are a beautiful thing – here and in heaven.
And, tonight – while some of you watched about Haiti and orphans on 60 minutes (
