We leave for Haiti in 8 days!
It is hard to believe that we leave for Haiti in just 8 days. After months of planning, praying, and preparation we are almost a week away from take off. I am very excited to return for my fifth time in six years. However, I am even more excited for the rest of the team, especially those who are going for the very first time. It is definitely a life changing trip. The team often will experience God in ways that they had never experienced Him before. It is not that God is any more present in Haiti than in the Silicon Valley, but we tend to be more spiritually attune to Him because we are in unfamiliar territory. This attentiveness yields a rich experience with the Holy Spirit, and a deeper understanding of Jesus who so lovingly laid His life down for those lost in darkness. It is always amazing to me how much more we get than we give during these short trips. Please pray that God transform both those we are ministering to as well as our own souls. - - - Joel King
