KCC Day 1

  • It's actually the morning of Day 2.  Catching up for Day 1 of our long travel to Haiti.  After arriving, settling in, tacos for dinner and becoming oriented to our guesthouse, we sat down for our first devotional time.  Worship time with Adam playing the guitar and all of us adding vocals was truly a spiritual experience.  Our music filled the compound and our neighbors in the next guesthouse remarked about it the following morning.  One of our daily experiences will be to share our "word or the day".  Our words for Day 1 said much.  I'll start with mine:ing  Exhausting.  As the elder on the team (by age by no way wisdom), 12 hours of traveling with no sleep took its toll.  But by the time we had finished our worshiping, my word really was Exhilarating, but that was Melissa's which she articulated before me.  The remaining 13: 
    • Again ("good we get to do this over and over", 
    • Peace, 
    • Welcomed (to our church family), 
    • Changed (from a first timer, Stacy), 
    • Home (feeling at home, Stepanie our leader in training,
    • Finally,
    • Anticipation (of the trip finally coming together), 
    • Reminiscent (a new experience for Bill to Haiti but much like other experiences he has had in his journey,
    • Vibes (good), 
    • Solved (every seeming obstacle before the trip being taken care of),  
    • Comfortable, (after much anxietyPurpose (trip came together), 
    • Expecting (a second timer who is open to God doing amazing things on this trip).
Another experience each day will be hearing the testimonials from our team.  Seven days, 2+ testimonials each evening. Fifteen powerful stories of how each of has placed Jesus in our hearts and the impact of that faith in our lives.  Manny and I kicked things off.  Gave me a lot of peace to share.
OK for now til our post from today.  Thanks for your support and love,  Glwa pou Bondye.
