Today was a very restful day. Simon, Blanco and I got up about 7 a.m., and I put on some coffee and checked my email–it is so cool to be able to check my email here in Z’Orange. After breakfast we went into Port to buy a truck part for George Truelove. I couldn’t believe that they actually had the part, and it was only $100. I told George I felt like I should give him more just to make sure the part was a good one. You can’t buy any truck part for $100 at the Ford dealership, especially in Haiti. Anyway, we bought it and took it over to his son, who will take it to him this weekend.

Then we went back over to the mission that builds bunk beds, and I took some pictures and measurements to see how they would fit in our rooms. I’m trying to decide whether to have our teams build the beds, or let them. I’ll let the Lord decide; it takes a lot of stress off me.

We came back to Z’Orange and ate lunch– I had bought some turkey, some sandwich stuff and Pringles, and some cokes, so we had a pretty good lunch. We had heard there was work being done on a road to Jerusalem 2, so we went to see. It usually takes about 2 hours to hike up the mountain, so we haven’t taken a medical team up there because we can’t take all our supplies, and some people are not able to hike up the mountain. We were able to drive to the top of the mountain, which is the roughest part to walk. I believe by November we will be able to drive all the way. It will be a real blessing for us and them to have medical teams and VBS in their church.

Then we drove to Jerusalem 4; the pastor and some of the congregation were there doing a Bible study. He came out and was so excited that we had been able to purchase another lot of land for the church. We had a couple donate the money to buy the land a couple of months ago. I know that the Lord is going to bless them with a real church building one day soon.

We came back home to the mission house and Blanco started working on the truck. Simon and I started looking through our trunks to find the tile stuff he will need to start laying the tile next week. It is really exciting to see God’s vision coming to life. I am so blessed to be His servant and watch as He touches people’s lives and fulfills His promises.

Please continue to pray for our brothers and sisters in Z’Orange. I know that God has a multitude of blessings to come beyond our imagination.
