Journey of Faith Team - Day 1 by Annie Cornforth

Dream. Present. Calm. Anticipation. Timely. 

Just a few of our team's words of the day at the end of Day 1!

We spent the day acclimating to our home for the next week. We learned new things each other.  We spent time at the National Museum to learn about this beautiful country's history. We enjoyed fellowship. We reunited with our Haitian friends. We prepared for a busy day tomorrow of visiting children at three different orphanages. We rested.

"For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you." ~Isaiah 41:13

I would like to take a moment to share a story about how God took hold of our hands and helped us to arrive in Haiti safe, sound and on time. We all arrived to LAX early and enjoyed smooth sailing through check-in and security. Close to our boarding time, we learned that our plane had an issue and would not be flying that night. I was blown away by the level of calmness and flexibility that shined through our team members. We ended up departing over two hours late threatening us to miss our connecting flight in Miami. God silenced our fears AND miraculously helped us to make our connecting flight... BY TWO MINUTES. Not only that, but our one checked back containing supplies and crafts for the children, made it onto the correct plane within minutes.

Starting out the trip like this only gives me an even bigger sense of anticipation for this upcoming week. How will He work through us? How will He work with within us? What will He reveal?

Stay tuned to find out...
