Father's Day in Haiti

Sunday's in Haiti are beautiful and a reminder of what it is to Sabbath. This morning the team traveled to participate in a Haitian service at a local church. We had the opportunity to sing a couple of songs and it seems that the team's presence was a blessing and encouragement to the community there.

This afternoon has been restful. Before lunch, we spent time praying together - for the Haitians, for team unity, for our fathers (we love you dads!) and seeking God for more of Him, more of His glory, more of His will. After lunch we had another round of sharing life stories, hearing and believing that God has been intentional with our journeys and will use them for His glory. As this post is being written, the team is sitting around a large table, guitars pulled out, the Irvine family gathered with us, worshiping together. This house that sits on a hill overlooking the city of Port au Prince is resounding with worship and adoration of the Creator of our universe.

Day and night they never stop saying: “‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,’ who was, and is, and is to come.” Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, 10 the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:
“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”
Revelation 4:8-11
