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.
Oh my goodness, I remember that rain. I have never seem rain come down like it does in Haiti. I remember that rainy sunday that we went to church and people just kept coming in there good cloths and shoes. Impossible not to be drenched by the time they arrived. But, then the worship starts and the rain on the tin roof and the praises of the people makes me think of the passage of scripture that say, the voice of many waters!
And behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east. His voice was like the sound of many waters; and the earth shone with His glory.
Thanks for being there and watching over those people for HIS Glory!
Love you guys,
Spell check: I should do it before hitting send. *their *clothes *says 🙂
Tears came to my eyes when I read, “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.” These people are not to be pitied, they are to be admired. I have never seen such determined, strong people. We could all learn from their example.
