Watch and LearnRich Stigall
Last week, we spent several days with Pastor Moise Vaval, our Field Director in Haiti. The time together reminded me again of why God directs us to work with His local church.
During prayer, Moise received a word that God desired “more consecration and less hesitation.” Can I add “less distraction” to the list? In prayer, my mind can wander in ways I wouldn’t allow it to in a conversation with a stranger. When Moise prays, he truly believes he is addressing The Maker of the universe, which of course, he is. Humbling. Watch and learn.
Later that day, a friend (who happened to be a lady) needed a word of encouragement. I offered a sincere, but safe, “God is with you in the trial.”
Moise shared, “Now that you’ve been baptized, love your husband more; respect him more. He will wonder, why? God will use you to win your husband to Himself. You are a very special lady, and I am not afraid to say, ‘I love you.'”
A Haitian pastor delivering God’s powerful truth and pure love to a suburban housewife at the moment of need. Beautiful.
So I watch and learn. I watch the proper perspective of pure prayer. I learn of His power when one begins to pastor from this position. We serve a big God, and we are grateful for the family He creates that cuts across countries, age, gender, income, etc. to center on Jesus and caring for His kids!
