We are back on the road again toward the village hillside where the Word of God is being proclaimed. This is our final day with the children. Today the Bible station will cover the crucifixion and the Story station will be the story of the Three Trees. Each day we have built upon the Rock of truth and not the sand of passing generations deception through voodoo.

Pray for our protection when the "walls of this Haitian Jericho" fall down! Pray for the hearts of the children to understand the depth and width and height of God's love for them through the sacrifice of Christ. Pastor G has asked us to climb the mountainside above the village today to hear (and see) the vision God has given him for the village. Pray for our mountaintop experience to carry down to the valley and become God's reality in this place.

I have received many emails regarding prayer for the Nation. I praise God for a new day and His promise for all Nations to be blessed by the sons and daughters of the King.

Last night I began humming the praise song "Rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS and again I say rejoice". I looked up the verse translated in The Message:

"Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life."
Phil 4:6-7

Around the world, we encounter people who have been "displaced" from hope by war, poverty, and disease. With the power of the Word and the strength of the Living God we are battling to bring Christ to the center, to communicate the "sense of wholeness" God brings. EVERYTHING is under His control.

"Summing it all up, friends, I'll say you'll do your best by filling your minds and meditating on things true:
God is good

God is faithful

God is trustworthy

God has never changed

God tells us to Go, and make disciples of all Nations

God's mercy is new every morning

- the best not the worst:
Our salvation is secure

- the beautiful, not the ugly;
Our nation has been blessed with resources 90% of the world cannot begin to imagine

- things to praise, not things to curse
God is still on the throne

.... Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work YOU into His most excellent harmonies. Phil 4:8-9

Now that is something to sing about!

Rejoicing and serving
