Sunday, the final “day off” before the final stretch of class days this week. It is amazing to think that we are ready to launch into this second week. Today was a day of worship, rest, and preparation for class this week. We were blessed this morning to attend the church of one of the seminary students. One thing that stood out about the service was his desire to preach the Word and make his people aware of the spiritual battle all around us and especially for them here in Haiti. During the service he called to the front a young couple with a small daughter. They had sought the help of a local man in voodoo when the wife had experienced a difficult pregnancy with this child.
I have never before ridden to church in the back of a 4x4!! The bed was fitted with two bench seats along the sides for transporting extra people beyond those who could fit in the cab. It got interesting as we were pressed for time on the way back and were traveling a little faster than we did on the way to church. When we hit a rather large rut (I was bracing myself using my legs as shock absorbers), one of the other guys in the back really “took air.” I am pretty sure that he came between 2 and 3 feet off of seat and nearly landed on me. All a part of the Haiti experience!
