June 23, 2011, Haiti Mission Trip

[nggallery id=15]

I know that all blessings come from God, but I must admit that I don’t understand all blessings or recognize all blessings at times. We are constantly put through many trials in Haiti and today was no exception. If I lived in this country for 100 years I would still be considered an outsider. Praise God that I have Harry by my side to help me understand the Haitian culture. I guess we are really a whole lot different from each other in many ways. Trust should be gained by earning it, and sometimes I am too trusting in that I usually allow someone to burn me before I make a true character judgment. It breaks my heart to have to feel like we must continually prove ourselves, but on the flipside I understand and respect the leadership on the ground at the orphanage.

Today was a slow day all plans were changed, welcome to Haiti! That’s the way it goes sometimes. It was a good day to do “gut checks” and rest.

I thank God that GMSM has partners who do see the bigger picture that God has for us here in Haiti. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
