New Blog (I know really original).

So here we are the day after Election Day in Haiti. So far everything is pretty calm as far as we know. Continue to pray for this country as the results will come out in a week. I realize there are lots of prayer requests for the world Japan, Libya and Haiti. There are probably a lot more requests that I am not aware of. Thank goodness we know that God is in control of all things and that he is watching over us.

So this past Wednesday the medical team left. We had a really great time with them, Dr. Amelia’s first time with us and she and her team saw about 840 patients. The translators and other staff all worked so well together. I was really encouraged to see the people get this kind of help. We saw lots of pregnant women and babies. The medical clinic is such an important part of this ministry. Please continue to uphold the construction part of it to the Lord as it is continuing slowly and steadily.

Be sure to check out the smile box I posted above this blog. It has pictures of what’s going on around the property and Haiti Arise from the last couple of weeks.
I keep hearing about rainy season but I have yet to see some actual rain. It’s really dry here right now so I am looking forward to moisture and more green. Compared to when we first got here in August. Speaking of that I cannot believe we only have 10 weeks left in Haiti. But I am not going to talk about that right now.

So we are still working on getting the containers out of Port au Prince. It’s been slow moving, months actually. But this past week we finally got word that they will be here soon.

I (Chris) had the opportunity to preach on Sunday. Since it was election day and we don't know how it will all turn out, I preached on what We know. That Christ is our King and we are His ambassadors here. It is always a blessing to be able to speak to the church and encourage them with God's Word.

Now we are preparing for two teams to arrive today, one from Abbotsford, and the other from Nelson BC. We will try and write another blog later this week. Si Bondye Vle which is Kreyol for 'If God wants.' Things are always so uncertain so we often say after everything 'If God wants.' So Si Bondye Vle we will write another blog later this week :).

God Bless.
Chris and Becca.
