On Easter Sunday morning Chuck G, Simon and I had to go to Port to buy some groceries for Madame Do for the Pastors’ Conference. Thank the Lord, I had asked Taric at One Stop Market if they would be open Easter Sunday, and he told me they would be open only from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The traffic was not bad at all, but I was surprised by the number of outdoor markets that were open, and the number of people in the markets; it was just another day to so many people. We were able to get everything we needed and get back in time for the Easter service. As in the States, many of the little girls had new dresses and the boys new suits–they were so precious!
After the service, Ginette prepared lunch, then Chuck G and I decided it was Sunday nap time. We slept until about 2:30, then Chuck G went for a walk, and I started working around the mission house. Pastor Do had asked me to preach on Sunday evening, so I worked on my sermon, also.
Before we knew it, it was 6 p.m., and Ginette had supper ready for us. This is the first time Haiti has ever observed daylight saving time, and now it doesn’t get dark until almost 7:30. After all the singing in the church service, it was 9 p.m. before I started preaching. We got out of church around 10 p.m.
Tomorrow Pastor Sean, Pastor Mark, and Lane will be arriving. We are going to have a great time with the Lord during the Pastors’ Conference. This is one of the most important events we hold here. Please be praying for this conference.
