PRAISE THE LORD – and thank you for your prayers! We have heard from both of our Haitian and Dominican field leaders, and the areas where MP is on the Island of Hispaniola did well through Hurricane Irma. We don’t have a ton of details, but enough to say that our people are well and safe, and our facilities stood strong. We are grateful for our Haitian and Dominican staff that weathered the storm there and helped to prepare and protect the people in their communities.
Last week, a team went to Haiti and the Dominican Republic to serve. On the last morning of the trip, those of us in Haiti took a “prayer walk” through our Degeance community. We stopped at our current school, at a well-known tree where voodoo ceremonies are often held, and finished at our new property. It was a Spirit-led walk, as we spent time singing worship songs together and praying over community members & children that we came across along the way.
When we arrived at the property where our new Degeance campus will be built, we spread out and walked around the land while praying. We prayed for funds to complete the project, for the students that will walk through the gate to receive an education, for the adults that are shepherding the students’ hearts, for the neighbors, and for God’s presence to saturate that place for generations to come. We welcomed the Holy Spirit and ended our time there by singing praise and worship to the One who holds the future of the Degeance property and community.
Now, we wait expecantly and full of anticipation to see how God will continue to move!
