Alleluia Haiti Team - Day 7

What a week we have had in Haiti.
We served.
We loved.
We grew closer to God.

Today we started this beautiful Sunday morning by praising the Lord at Grace Church. We worshiped in Creole with prayer and praise music. Then we headed up the coast to a Oceanside beach resort, Wahoo Bay. We spent the afternoon swimming, snorkeling, shopping, laying in the sun(getting sunburnt) and truly enjoying each others company. It is so wonderful to see God's beautiful creation at this beach and to see a different part of Haiti.

This week, our team h
as bonded together through our many amazing experiences. From playing with children in orphanages, delivering water to people that have no access to running water, learning a little sign language as we spend time with kids in the Haiti Deaf Academy, holding, feeding and changing diapers with sick children at the Home for Sick and Dying, supporting the local economy with our shopping, and the many laughs and tears and daily devotions we have had together.  It is hard to describe the impact this trip has had on us, but we are excited to see how the Lord will continue to use us.

A quote that has really touched our team, "True service is not something we do for the Lord, but something he does through us." - Blessings for the Evening devotion book
This describes our week perfectly, the Lord truly did amazing work through every single one of us.

See you again soon, beautiful Haiti,
Jessica & Shannon
