KCC D2: Willing Hearts and Palms Up

Wow, what a way to jump into Living Waters.  Water Truck Day is delivering clean water to Cite Soleil, the poorest slum in the western hemisphere.  Our team shared in the filling process of hundreds of 5 gallon buckets (and anything that could hold water) in a line as far as you could see.  The kids wanted all kinds of attention and we helped people carry their water to humble homes. What a opportunity to serve with willing hearts and with our palms up in friendship with the Haitian people. We got a chance to see Hope Church, a church and school planted in the heart of Cite Soleil.  Our day wrapped up with a visit to La Fleur farm, a new initiative of Healing Haiti's that is producing fruit and vegetables for use at HH and beyond.  Day 2 devotionals were again so spiritual, Our "Words for the Day":

  • Water (simple but such a powerful element of our lives)
  • Blessed
  • Loved
  • Hair (kids playing with her hair got her out of her comfort zone)
  • Gratitude
  • Humorous
  • Assured
  • Calm
  • Surprising
  • Confirmation
  • Focused
  • Service 
  • Joy
  • Thankful
  • Smooth
To our blog followers, these words probably have some meaning but no depth.  To this blogger, the uniqueness of the mission experience is impossible to really put in black and white.  The depth is really in the hearts and souls of myself and my teammates.  While we chose only one word tonight, we really experienced each of them in some way today (and together!).  Two more unique testimonials of faith and worship music filled out the beautiful evening.  It is wonderful to hear our voices transcend the neighborhood air.  God is doing something special here.  We are blessed to share it with Him.  Bon nwit.  Bondye beni ou. (Good night. God bless you).  Thanks for following and praying for our continued success.  From our entire team, Mike.
