Today, we leave for Haiti in search of water.
In Deyemon, Haiti, at The Torch Compound, we are drilling for water so that there will be an adequate supply for the Torch Medical Clinic, Torch Christian Academy, and Torch Orphanage. Currently, the city relies upon a cistern. Haiti is considered a water-stressed country. With 80% of the country’s population living below the poverty line, few water treatment facilities are properly functioning for the general public in the country. Haiti’s seasonal rainfall patterns provide too much rain for some during segments of the year and too little for others during the dry season.
It is a leap of faith. Friday morning the drills will penetrate the earth, and we are believing great things from God.
37 “On the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, ‘Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! 38 Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’” 39 (When he said “living water,” he was speaking of the Spirit, who would be given to everyone believing in him. But the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus had not yet entered into his glory.)” John 7:37-39
Our construction team will also be working on the roof, plumbing, and electrical needs at The Torch Compound. I plan to meet with the teachers and leaders of the school. We continue to work with Food for the Poor to provide for the needs of the people. It is overwhelming all that God is doing for us and through us in Haiti.
Because of your support, children will be learning about God, geography, history, reading, and math. Because of your support, the sick with be provided medical care and vaccinations. Because of your support, the Word of Jesus Christ will spread through out Haiti in The Torch churches and via the radio station.
YOU are being the hands and feet of Jesus.
