Change is Coming and a Clown is Leaving...

...the country that is – and only temporarily.

Because I’m a Texan, you know the subject matter is NOT a political statement. There are so many political emails flying through the internet inter-space, I wanted you to be aware of the critical call to prayer needed for our upcoming trip to Haiti.

The 2008 Hurricane season left Haiti devastated. Four storms in three weeks killed an estimated 700 people. Housing, crops and property were destroyed in a country considered severely impoverished. Considering the damage done to the Texas coastline from the last storm (Hurricane Ike), it is hard to imagine in a nation with few resources how recovery begins and where hope can be found. Because Ike did not affect the roadways along the northern coastal region, our plans for ministering proceed as planned.

The Message translates 2 Corinthians 4:1 like this:

Since God has so generously let us in on what he is doing, we're not about to throw up our hands and walk off the job just because we run into occasional hard times.

Next week, I am expecting big changes! I anticipate the Holy One of Israel to make Himself known through our minds, hands and feet as we minister to 300 Haitian village children. I am know He will CHANGE HEARTS for eternity! That promise excites me and gives me hope far greater than a temporary change in Presidents or politics. Our team of 5 will conduct a three day outdoor program for children in the surrounding rural area of Limbe, Haiti. The Haitian Pastor and staff we will be working alongside, planted a church in the village, and asked for a children’s program for those who do not attend school. He described them as the “poorest of the poor”. The Word specifically states in Proverbs 21:13 what happens when we fail to listen: If a man shuts his ears to the cry of the poor, he too will cry out and not be answered.

In a time when “cries” for our nation need to be heard, please remember to heed His message and respond.

No matter who wins the United States Presidential election, the King is still on the Throne of Heaven. He is still in control, He is still seeking the lost, and He is still expecting US to fulfill the Great Commission and GO!

Going AGAIN smiling in His service.
