It was a more routine day for me in Haiti as I continue to settle into the rhythm of life here. I am reminded that work on any mission field, whether in Haiti or at home, is really just the living out of whatever Jesus desires to do through us at the moment wherever He has placed us. It is Friday, the end of the first week of classes (hard to believe we are half-completed with this course!), and the students were all very busy completing the assignment that was due today. They were to have chosen a passage for study for the entire two-week course, and they were to simply make observations (“What does it say?” or “What do I see?”) of that passage, just being immersed in it and using whatever tools are available to them, following some of the categories we looked at in class.
After a great dinner we had a fun evening of fellowship playing some board games with the missionary husbands (Matt Ayars and Phil Heckman, with son Ethan) and the visiting guy professors, Bob Petruccio, Larry Lain, and myself. It is great to have such a sense of being a team, which is so strong on this campus. I feel that support and connection with so many of you at home who have been praying and encouraging during this trip. Thank you for your prayers --- they are making a difference and God is bringing about revival in the class.
