As my time here is wrapping up, I am blessed to be able to walk away with new things I have learned spiritually, emotionally, personally, and culturally.
For those who are wondering, my safari went wonderfully. It was great way to start the ending of my trip. I had a great weekend before, then went on a two night three day safari, came back to base, and continued to have a great week.
I was able to see all sorts of animals, went to the top of Merchinson Falls, a boat cruise of the Victoria Nile, and was able to experience all new things on that trip.
This week, I was able to do one one one with the kids. They all felt so important and didn’t have to fight for the attention they were craving to have individually.
This weekend was a well needed one.
Starting with my outing with one of kids; we went swimming. I showed him water isn’t something to be scared of and how to put trust in a few things. He had a blast once he was able to trust I was there for him.
What we don’t realize is if we put our trust in Him, our Lord, we will see that we can be okay through the rough times. Once we let Him have control, we can have a blast as well.
Well. It’s been a week since I’ve been in my new home and words can’t express the love I have for this nation. God has taken my heart and ripped it to shreds and he is molding it to look more like his. From that first moment stepping onto Haiti soil, to currently laying in bed ill, I can’t even begin to explain the way my life has drastically changed. Haiti is a nation filled with so much passion and purpose and I’m so grateful to be a part of it this summer. Don’t get me wrong, this past week has been the hardest of my life. Ive been shaken to the core of my being in the villages and I’ve learned so much about myself and that terrified me, but God is a gracious God and I’m forever thankful for that. Partnering with mission of hope has been an amazing experience. A missions organization that isn’t focused on being a bandaid organization, but they are a long term organization that truly wants to see a nation transformed. I love that. I love Haiti.
These past few days have been filled with all exciting things.
To begin, church felt even more alive than the last time. It’s honestly the best feeling to have the opportunity to be apart of that experience and the ongoing experience that I will be having this trip. Afterwards, we went to a restaurant called the Haven that had a breath taking view of the Nile River.
If productivity, efficiency, and rationality are not the ways God gauges a human person’s value, then they are not the ways I should measure it, either. If childlike dependence on God is the mark of a great soul, then there are great souls hidden in all sorts of places where the world sees only disability, decay, and despair.
