It’s rainy season in Haiti. This morning the rain was coming down in sheets as people made their way to church. Water was even standing inside the church while members sidestepped each puddle to find their seat on whatever bench was dry. The couple in this picture rode their motorcycle to church this morning with their baby. They both came inside the church drenched, but they came. It was the first Sunday of the month. This means it was Communion Sunday and the day for dedicating babies. Theirs’ was one among the group to be dedicated to the Lord.
We had a beautiful service and the Lord was present among us. When I look at our assembly, I don’t see ordinary people trying to eke out a living. I see kings and priests. They have wrestled with demonic powers and dominions and won. They also love church and will pay the price to get there. This picture sums up this truth.
