Hey all this is Brant. Just an update on things in Haiti. We went out and learned how the Haitians made rope yesterday, is was really interesting. We helped make some, and hung out with the people at that tribe. We jumped some rope with the younger ones, I think we had 4 people jumping on the same rope at one time. We do have pictures, I guess you'll have to see them when we get back. Before we left, we did get to pray with the whole tribe. I actually was able to lead the prayer while Leon interpreted afterwards. The people were very opened to us praying for them, and did associate the prayer with being able to recieve God's blessings. It was good to see that there are those who do believe.
Nathan and I are the most sun burned, we went snorkling all day yesterday. WOW, the most beautiful sights you can ever imagine. I can't believe that there was a time in my life that I didn't think there was a God. His creation is awesome.
Church was good this morning, we studied John 10. The people really can understand this because of the Shepherd issue. Jesus is the good Shepherd, maybe we, in the United States don't understand this as well as the Haitians, because there are actually shepherds here. They shepherd mostly goats, but I've noticed that they will walk around with their master, and seemed to never get mixed up about who they were supposed to be following. May we all be the same as the goats, never getting mixed up about who we're supposed to follow. Our master provides for us more than we can ever acknowledge, lets give Him all the praise and glory, His name is Jesus.
Continue praying that we can break this "stranger" barrier and be able to actually talk to some of these people about our Lord and Savior. It's a difficult thing waiting on the Spirit to move, but I know it's coming.
We thank you for your prayers, and I hope we can get some pictures out today. We are constantly trying, I promise.
Also pray that mine and Nathan's sunblock will work better today. It really burns right now.
