Little is Much
I love the old song, Little is Much When God Is In It, because it’s so true. What little things we do for God, He turns into much. In February, Phil and Karyn Beemer, Marv DeVisser, Todd Holton, Jayme Kulhawik, Sue Logeman, Isaiah Patterson and Leland Prebble traveled to Haiti to build new relationships and renew old ones, and God used the team to accomplish much.
Since I started going to Haiti in 2000, the country never seems to get a break. They had the flood of the mid-2000s, the devastating earthquake of 2010, Hurricane Matthew this past fall, and poverty constantly staring them in the face. All of this just a two-hour plane ride from beautiful, rich Miami, Florida. Yet the Haitians are resilient. They bounce back in the face of Destiny and the Christian church is flourishing.
Our team helped build new steel trusses and beams for a destroyed parsonage, built dozens of school benches for a school hit by the hurricane; painted the caretaker’s house, distributed hygiene kits made by our Sewing Mission’s team, and worked on the new property that Friends of Haiti Organization (FOHO) bought after the earthquake. There we poured a 40 x 70 slab and foundation for a workshop, put a roof on a pavilion, built a well-house over a new water well that was installed, and we hired 30 Haitians to help build a security wall.
We may think we are helping the Haitians, but in fact, their infectious Christian love of invigorates us and renews our Spirit. Thanks, SAFMC for your ongoing support.
