UThis week's devotional is from Pastor Mike via phone from Haiti:
We are preparing to go off to our worksite this morning. The trip would normally take about 3 hours but there are unforeseen things happening on the regular route, so it will take about 5-6 hours to arrive at our destination. Not only that, but it will be a rough, bumpy road over the mountains in the back of a truck on hard benches. Pray that no one gets sick.
Our plan is to get started working when we arrive today. We will work all day Thursday and Friday. Friday night will be the dedication service. Then we will return to the Seminary on Saturday.
The project consists of putting a roof on the structure the Haitians have built. I believe it is 35' x 50'. We will build and assemble the pews and paint the church. Add a few other odds and ends in and there you have our project.
One of the things we look forward to the most is the relationships we build. This church has a young Pastor that is eager to reach their community for Christ. We appreciate the blessing bags and bracelets people from our church prepared.
Pray for us to be able to accomplish what the Lord has planned for us. Whether it be completing the project or seeing His hand at work in all things. God is at work already, He has never stopped.
"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God. Do not become a stumbling block, whether to the Haitians or our own team (my translation), or the church of God, just as I try to please everyone in all I do. For I am not seeking my own good, it is the good of many, that they may be saved" 1 Corinthians 10:31-33.
As we accomplish the Will of God today, may you be passionate about accomplishing His will in your sphere of influence today.
To God be the glory!
