Tomorrow, we will be in an early-morning committee meeting, so I thought I’d write this update now. As of tomorrow, 10 January, we will have been in Haiti for 36 years. I will never forget the first time I descended the steps of Eastern Airlines (which doesn’t exist anymore) and seeing the infamous Tonton Macoutes all lined up in a row just below me. They were Duvalier’s henchmen and we would eventually hear horror stories of atrocities they committed in the night – of people who mysteriously disappeared. You couldn’t see their eyes for their dark sunglasses, but their very presence evoked a sense of evil. They all wore blue jean uniforms and held Uzzi submachine guns. The smells of Port-au-Prince instantly hit me and I wondered what this young, naive wife was doing in a place like this.
Since that day, we have been down many roads in Haiti, some treacherous, but most of them joyful. Through it all, he has been our Ebenezer. Isn’t it fitting that we would be surrounded by the young leaders who were trained up in the churches we founded to celebrate this occasion with us?
We thank the Lord for his faithfulness to us and ask for more strength to serve him, more wisdom to lead, and more tenacity to never give up in the years to come. We would covet your prayers as well!
