harnessing the power of photography for good

{Heal Haiti}

{Heal Haiti}

It’s the morning before I leave for Haiti and I finally feel like my to do list is complete, I’m packed and able to prepare for this adventure for the next 2 weeks.  I’m not sure it’s hit me that I am embarking on my first mission trip and to Haiti at that!  I think once we get settled on the plane it will become reality.  Here are specific prayer requests for the group:

June 5-8
Pray for traveling mercies and for students to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
{2 Chronicles 7:14}

June 9-11
Pray that God would meet practical needs of the Haitians through IMPACT students; pray for divine appointments.
{Mark 9:14-29}

June 12-14
Pray God would bring comfort to the Haitians through the class and use them to inspire the multitude.
{Deuteronomy 6:4-9}

June 15-18
Pray that God would add hundred of lives to the Kingdom of God in Haiti; pray for a safe journey home.
{Acts 2:36-39}

God has continued to bless me with so much support, love and encouragement, I’m blown away by His grace and love He has poured out on me through the Body.  Even though I feel like I didn’t prepare enough for this trip, there are SO many people praying for me, I’ve never appreciated the power of prayer more than now.  Going into the unknown, uncomfortable and unnatural will do that to you.

I am so appreciative, beyond words of the people who have supported me financially, prayerfully and lovingly!  I have received tangible gifts of love, cards, drawings, care packages and more than ever I have felt what it means to bear eachother’s burdens and be knit together in heart.  It brings Acts to mind…

“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.  Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles.  All the believers were together and had everything in common.  Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need.  Every day they continued to meet in the temple courts.  They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all people.  And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” {Acts 2:42-27}
