To Him be the Glory

"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurable more that all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory..." Ephesians 4:20

Beauty, Beautiful, Hope, Amazing, Connection, Worthy, Blessed...
These are just a few of the words that our team used to describe our week. 
Oh, we have been stretched this week.  God has broken our hearts in different ways each day. From the little kiddos in the orphanages or at the water stops, to the elderly, or the wound clinic downtown, God has stretched us way way outside anything we have experienced before.

Yet, God provided all that we needed for each day, for each hard hard thing.  We all had fears, anxieties, worries. Some spoken out loud, some not. At the end of each day, we felt wrung out, yet weirdly filled up at the same time.  How does that happen in Haiti?

One team member said it well tonight when she said we all had divine appointments with people here in Haiti.  God gives us those same divine appointments with people at home, but do we have the eyes to see them? Let that be our prayer...

I am praising God for His faithfulness to this team this week. He is our strength, He answered some big prayers for us, and ALL THE GLORY GOES TO HIM!!
